Yes. Under West Virginia code, a person having a prior involuntary commitment to a mental institution may petition the circuit court of the county in which they live in to regain their rights to possess a firearm. A judge will consider this petition, taking into account applicable law, a person’s mental health and criminal records and evidence demonstrating the person is competent and capable of exercising the responsibilities that come with possession of a firearm. The court may enter an order allowing the person to possess a firearm or the court may deny one’s petition. If denied, the individual can file an appeal.
