Wyoming: Pro-Gun legislation Passes out of Committee

Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee passed both House Bill 136 and House Bill 137 by a 4-1 vote.  These important pro-gun bills are now headed for the Senate floor where they will await full consideration by the Senate.

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.

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.
