Charleston, W. Va. West Virginians with valid permits can now carry concealed handguns in Kansas.
The reciprocity agreement also allows Kansas residents with valid permits to carry concealed weapons in West Virginia.
West Virginia has similar agreements with 22 other states.
Assistant Attorney General Will Valentino tells the Charleston Gazette that agreements with all the states aren't possible. Some states don't allow concealed weapons to be carried. Other states' laws vary too much from West Virginia's laws.
State Police records show that at least 60,000 West Virginians have concealed weapons permits.
