A bill that would have allowed legally-permitted guns on state university campuses died in the West Virginia legislative session that ended Saturday, March 10.  

Another measure, that would have allowed citizens to keep their permitted guns locked in their vehicles while at work, school or shopping, was given the OK by state legislators.  

The campus-carry bill, which would have permitted guns on campuses, was unanimously opposed by Shepherd University’s faculty senate.
