Even though West Virginia is a Permitless Carry State they do not honor all other states permit/licenses. No Open Carry or Permitless Carry allowed. 21 for those with a permit West Virginia honors. 18 for WV Residents with a Permit.

West Virginia –SB 128 which covers the Emergency Powers of the Governor/State Government became law without the Governors Signature. They can’t stop the carrying/transport of firearms/parts/reloading components etc doing a declared emergency. The law takes effect in about 90 days.

West Virginia – SB 608 updated the definitions of Deadly weapons by adding that Pepper Spray is not a dangerous weapon when used for defensive purposed for those 16 or older.

Ohio – Not Effective until about 4/4/2023, The Governor let SB 185 become law without his signature.

That county can also make ordinances concerning issuing even making a list of what they call Sensitive Places as Off Limits.
