Wyoming: Third and Final Reading Expected for Permitless Carry Bill Tomorrow, February 25!

Thursday, February 24, 2011

Yesterday, Senate File 47, Wyoming’s permitless carry legislation, passed second reading in the House by a 48 to 8 vote, with four excused votes. SF 47 will immediately be considered on third and final reading tomorrow, February 25, on the House floor. Also yesterday, the Senate Transportation Committee unanimously voted against the passage of House Bill 207, commonly referred to as workplace protection legislation.

Sponsored by state Senator Kit Jennings (R-28), SF 47 is an important update to lawful carry in Wyoming.  It would allow for the lawful carry of a concealed firearm without the burdensome requirement of acquiring a Wyoming carry permit. In Wyoming it is generally legal to carry a firearm openly as long as one is at least 18 years of age and not prohibited from possessing a firearm.  The intent of this legislation is to give people the greatest possible freedom to choose the best method of carry for them, based on attire, gender, and/or physical attributes.

Please contact your state Representative today and respectfully urge him or her to vote in favor of Senate File 47.  To contact your Representative click here.

HB 207 would have prohibited employers from firing employees who safely and lawfully store a firearm in their privately owned, locked vehicle while on an employer’s publicly accessible parking lot.  Wyoming citizens who currently choose to carry a firearm for self-defense during their commute to and from work will still be faced with the possibility of being fired, should their employer enact a policy prohibiting the practice. 

Please contact the members of the Senate Transportation Committee today and voice your displeasure with their failure to pass HB 207.
