With a little over 30 days left in the 2019 Wyoming Legislative Session, Senate File 75/House Bill 183 has been introduced and your lawmakers need to hear from you now.
Senate File 75/House Bill 183 seeks to repeal certain portions of Wyoming’s statutes that prohibit the lawful carrying of a firearm for self-defense in any meeting of a governmental entity or any meeting of the legislature or a committee. Further, this legislation would also repeal the carry prohibition in any school, college or professional athletic event not related to firearms or any public elementary or secondary school facility; and in any public college or university facility.
In addition, Senate File 75/House Bill 183 would strengthen the preemption protections in Wyoming by specifying that the exclusive jurisdiction over authorizing, regulating and prohibiting “firearms, weapons and ammunition” belongs to “the state.” This provision would prevent local municipalities from imposing their own gun laws and creating a patchwork of confusing legal hurdles across the state.
Please contact your Senator and Representative and strongly urge them to SUPPORT Senate File 75/House Bill 183 when it comes up for a vote.
