West Virginia legislator wants to hold no-gun-zone proprietors liable for injuries

According to W.Va. Del. Brandon Steele, (R) 29th, legislation is needed to hold no-gun zones accountable in the event of a tragedy.

“If you’ve taken away that person’s ability to protect themselves, then it’s incumbent on you to protect them,” explained Del. Steele who is seeking a revision in state code.

A legislative proposal is a necessary first step for legislation, but it's just the beginning of a long process that usually ends in failure.

Even if this initiative fails, perhaps it will raise awareness of the need for personal security in some form.

SIA
1. All guns are loaded.
2. Always have your gun pointed in a safe direction.
3. Keep your finger off the trigger until the moment you are determined to fire.
4. Be sure of your target and what is behind it.

Tennessee already has a law that does this.
