Constitutional Carry Passes out of Committee in Wyoming!

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

Please Contact Your State Legislators!

On Tuesday, February 16, the House Judiciary Committee passed House Bill 113, which would allow constitutional carry.  HB 113 will now head to the Committee of the Whole for consideration. 

HB 113 would allow those who meet the requirements currently set forth in the concealed carry permit system to carry a concealed firearm for self-defense without a permit.  This legislation addresses the current problem of a burdensome and restrictive permit system by removing the training requirement and other prohibitive barriers in Wyoming.

If signed into law, this legislation would also keep the current permit system intact for the residents concerned about carrying in other states with reciprocal agreements.  Those who are currently prevented from legally carrying, be it open or concealed, will still face the same penalties should they decide to break the law.

Please contact both your State Representative and State Senator today and respectfully urge them to support this important carry reform bill.  Contact information can be found here.
