CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The West Virginia Attorney General’s Office is affirming concealed carry recognition with Virginia and six other states.

The office earlier this year began discussions with every state to ensure West Virginia’s concealed handgun licenses will be recognized, meaning the states will recognize licenses provided to West Virginians who are at least 21 years old.

The office affirmed recognition with Alabama, Arizona, Nebraska, Nevada, Tennessee, Utah and Virginia.

Virginia, Arizona and Nebraska do not recognize West Virginia’s provisional licenses, which are issued to people between 18 and 20.
