Today, the Wyoming Senate passed Emergency Powers Legislation, Senate File 155, by an overwhelming 28 to 2 vote. Also today, the House Judiciary Committee voted 8 to 1 to advance House Bill 116, legislation to remove the residency restriction for permitless carry. It now goes to the House floor for further consideration. Please contact your State Representative and ask them to SUPPORT Senate File 155 and House Bill 116.
Senate File 155 provides protections for gun stores, ranges, or any other entity that engages in the lawful selling or servicing of firearms, components, or accessories. SF 155 also prevents the prohibition, regulation, or seizure of citizens’ Second Amendment rights during a declared State of Emergency.
House Bill 116 expands Wyoming’s permitless carry law, which has been in effect since 2011, to all law-abiding adults, not just Wyoming residents who have resided in the state for at least six months. This ensures that visitors and new residents have their right to self-defense without government red tape or delays.
Again, please contact your State Representative and ask them to SUPPORT Senate File 155 and House Bill 116.
