Council members pass ordinance redefining firearm sales in Huntington, WV


In their regular city council meeting, held Tuesday, the Huntington, West Virginia city council placed restrictions on where businesses can, or cannot, open if they sell guns.

The ordinance will ban businesses that sell, manufacture or repair firearms from placement in neighborhood commercial districts and mandates that all firearm-selling businesses must come before the Board of Zoning Appeals in a public meeting if they want to set up shop in the central business district.

Moreover, these sellers can set up shop in highway commercial and industrial zones.
