Everytown Law represents the West Virginia Coalition Against Domestic Violence in a constitutional challenge to West Virginia’s 2018 “guns in parking lots” law, W. Va. Code § 61-7-14(d), which forces businesses to allow guns in their parking areas and threatens them with lawsuits and civil penalties if they fail to comply. The law also forbids businesses from asking if an employee or visitor has a firearm in their vehicle, from requiring employees to keep their guns off company property, or from “taking any action against” someone who has brought a gun into the parking area.
