    I find it difficult to believe that anyone would be FOR this bill. It grants special privilege to someone JUST because they hold a certain job. It is unfair and unconstitutional...

    I'm sure that anyone who is a Magistrate can afford the fees and take the courses just like any other law-abiding citizen. I mean, REALLY, let's be realistic here. If someone isn't capable of passing the required safety courses, then they probably shouldn't be carrying a gun, let alone practicing Law...

    Who proposed this bill, some Magistrate who has a previous conviction that would otherwise exclude him from obtaining a permit?

    This bill is an appalling example of the "system of privilege" that our "judicial" system has become, and I would think that any WV resident with even a TINY bit of a sense of fairness would be against it...
    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."
    --Barry Goldwater, 1964

    What also got me were the other two:

    HB 2075Allow family court judges to carry concealed weapons without a license
    This bill grants family court judges the same privilege as the law already grants to circuit court judges.

    HB 2298Allow mental hygiene commissioners to carry concealed weapons without a license
    Authorizes mental hygiene commissioners to carry concealed weapons without a license.

    I agree.......this is not fair!!
