Staff photo by Don Ryan t just carry that handgun c7 but Charrick like others in Charnock aptly de clouding Kanawha circuit judge Taylor the one authorized for issuing handgun Licen ses in Kanawha county believes it s often More dangerous carry a gun than not. I they suggest that people carrying guns for Protection criminals Aren t really prepared to use the is. And that poses a Little problem for the gun toting citizen. 1 of if i pull a gun on somebody i d better be prepared to kill said Charnock. And he does t think he is. But the Crook is. Judge Wood is another who agrees there Are Many hand gun carrying citizens who Don t Lave licenses but he suggests the threat of going to jail does t Stop them. Word is that in some j sections of the City some peo 1 pie prefer to take a Chance on getting six to 12 months than i take a Chance on getting caught without he explained. And Kanawha pros. Atty. Patrick Casey suggests that "50 per cent of the people encountered in certain areas of town after Midnight Are carrying some kind of but it s hard for police to do anything about such a situation he said because they just can t Stop and search suspected of fenders. Of course there Are situations where police catch someone who has used of it using in a criminal but then it does t make much sense to bring the gun Law Down on their Heads when they can be charged with a much More serious offence. Assistant pros. Atty. Larry Winter who handles a majority of Kanawha county s prosecutions says he goes after the stiffer sentences of armed Rob Bery from 10 years to life imprisonment and unarmed Rob Bery five to 18 from Page scribes the difference Between handgun penalties and those for More serious crimes in which guns Are used As the differ ence Between flu and almost everyone interviewed with the possible exception of judge Wood believes West Vir Ginia s handgun Laws Are inadequate but that there s Little that can be done about dealing with the problem of unlicensed per sons at a state level. Wood however suggests that the state has adequate Laws which if completely in. Forced would certainly pre vent people unauthorized to carry guns from doing but he too concedes there Are enforcement problems. Judge Wood did t mention a need for National gun Laws but the others did. Casey for in stance favors National registration of handguns and Charnock says registration would t Hurt Charnock and others in a similar vein suggests there maybe should also be a 72-hour waiting period Between the time a person first seeks to buy a gun and before he can actually pick it up. That and perhaps a background police Check. But these efforts he indicated Are mostly aimed at pre venting the Purchase and use of what police Call saturday night handguns bought at a Pawn shop or Dis count store a the height of a Drunken argument. If a criminal wants a gun he s going to get he adds. Judge Taylor also wants National gun Laws including registration and he too is dead against the easy availability of those saturday night Spe impossible to go up on Summers Street location of several Pawn shops and buy a he said. I be always Felt that Way but there s nothing i can do about there is however something judge Taylor can do about handguns and that s taking a close look at those who want licenses to carry them. As Cir Cuit judge he has the sole responsibility in Kanawha county for deciding who does and who does not get licenses. Judge Taylor said who gets a License depends upon his judge ment As to whether the person applying for one makes a Good Case. But he said he did t want to set Down his exact criteria because i would be flooded with but the typical person applying for a License he said is someone who fears for his life or is a businessman who must carry Large sums of Money to a night depository or keeps it with him Over night. There Are several Steps that must be taken before a License can be issued including the presentation of a Legal petition in circuit court arrangement of a surety Bond payment of to the sheriff and the publication of a Legal notice in the newspaper. Often said Taylor persons who Call his office about getting a permit think a second time when faced with these proce dures and costs and then decide they really Don t need to carry a gun after All. And those who go through with everything and maybe receive a handgun License will have it with minor exceptions for just one year. And even then Taylor can limit the hours of the Day in which they Are 11 if i had my Way it would be Censed to carry it and even the Fayette Raleigh news May 27, 1972 the Charleston we Lesa Pittston leases acres places they can carry just in Charleston or just in Kanawha county. I have never been very Liber-1 Al about granting Taylor added. But then i be talked to circuit judges else where in West Virginia who have never granted any Licen ses. They just Don t believe in unions9 Appeal heard by examiner testimony was heard Friday in an Appeal by two unions on strike against the newspaper Agency corp., whose members were denied unemployment compensation from nov. 19 through dec. 2.
