Wyoming: Support Repeal of the Gun Free Zones Act

Last week, state Representative Allen Jaggi (R-19) introduced House Bill 114, which seeks to restore trained, law-abiding concealed carry permit holders’ constitutional right to possess a firearm for self-defense on nearly all state-owned property.  This legislation will explicitly recognize the right of an individual who possesses a valid concealed carry permit issued by the state of Wyoming to lawfully carry a concealed weapon in the following locations: (1) any meeting of a governmental entity; (2) any public K-12 school; and (3) on the campus of any public college or university.

The NRA believes that absolute prohibitions of lawfully possessed concealed weapons on public property represent a broad infringement of an individual’s constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms and fundamental right to self-defense.  Numerous tragedies have unequivocally shown that “gun free zones” create an environment that disarms law-abiding citizens, but has no significant deterrence on criminals who simply ignore the law.

HB 114 has been referred to the House Judiciary Committee.  Using the contact information provided below, please contact members of the House Judiciary Committee and respectfully urge them to support HB 114.
