The U.S. Attorney’s Office, in a partnership with the Wheeling Police Department and the YWCA, is launching a gun awareness campaign, highlighting the risks of purchasing firearms for someone who is banned from having firearms. “Too many times in West Virginia, someone is charged with a federal crime for purchasing a gun for someone who can’t. Federal prison isn’t worth it. We want everyone to think twice before helping someone commit a gun crime,” Acting United States Attorney Randolph J. Bernard.
