Wyoming Update on Several NRA-Backed Bills!

Friday, February 10, 2006

The Wyoming Legislative Session begins Monday, February 13.  Several NRA-backed bills have been introduced in the State House and Senate.  HB 46, sponsored by Representative Steve Watt (R-17), is known as the “No Duty to Retreat Act/Castle Doctrine.”  This bill specifies that Wyoming citizens have no duty to try to escape before using deadly force against an assailant, either in their home or in their vehicle. 

HB 78, sponsored by Representative Becket Hinckley (R-41), would allow law-abiding citizens to carry a concealed firearm without a permit.  SB 79, sponsored by Senator Cale Case (R-25), would allow law-abiding citizens to carry a firearm for self-protection during bow hunting season.  Please visit http://www.nraila.org/ for updates on these important pieces of legislation.
