Wyoming: House Passes Pro-Carry Legislation, Your Action Needed Now

Today, the Wyoming House of Representatives passed House Bill 136 by a 40-19 vote without amendments, and House Bill 137 by a 47-13 vote with an amendment.  Both pro-gun bills will now be transferred to the Senate where they will await a committee referral.  Please contact your state Senator and politely urge them to SUPPORT House Bill 136 and House Bill 137 when they come up for a vote.

House Bill 136 would amend the existing statute to allow a person lawfully carrying with a Wyoming state permit to carry a concealed weapon on any public college or university campus or within any public college or university facility, without having to have the written consent of the security service of the public college or university.

As amended, House Bill 137 would allow an individual with a valid concealed carry permit to lawfully carry a concealed weapon in any meeting of a government entity, including the state Legislature.
