Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen defends Right-to-Carry rules

Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen defended the state Justice Department's concealed carry regulations Thursday, saying the agency must define training requirements and verify it took place. Republicans passed a law earlier this year that allows Wisconsin residents to carry concealed weapons.

The National Rifle Association sent Van Hollen a letter Wednesday accusing his agency of going overboard on the regulations.

West Virginia: Tazewell County now in compliance with state law

Tazewell County is now in compliance with state code as it relates to persons legally permitted to carry a firearm as a concealed weapon at county parks. An earlier ordinance was requested by Northwestern District board member Seth White last year after he noticed a no firearms symbol at the entrance to the Lake Jack Witten/Cavitts Creek Park. At the time, White said the sign represented a violation of his second amendment rights to keep and bear arms. However, after reviewing state code, County Attorney Eric Young found a change in the 2004 state legislation that prohibits counties and towns from regulating firearms. As a result, the county's present ordinance was ruled obsolete.
