Yesterday, the 2014 short budget session in Wyoming adjourned. The 2014 session saw the introduction of several firearms and hunting-related bills, including the pro-hunting Senate File 38. SF 38, introduced by state Senator Leland G. Christensen (R-17), amends the current law requiring the completion of a hunter safety course before hunting on land other than your own to exempt honorably discharged military and active or retiring Wyoming peace officers. This bill passed the state Senate on February 13 by a 28-2 vote, the state House of Representatives on February 27 by a 53-3 vote and was signed into law by Governor Matt Mead (R) on March 4.
The NRA thanks state lawmakers for supporting this positive legislation. SF 38 is a great way to show support to members of our armed services and law enforcement while preserving the long-standing traditions of outdoor sportsmanship. Preservation of your Second Amendment liberties is of paramount importance to the NRA and, with the adjournment of another legislative session, we are thankful to those who stood up and fought for the rights of individuals across Wyoming.
