    Wyoming Reciprocity Problems!!!

    Wyoming has put up a new list of states they will honor. There is a couple problems with it. They list Iowa and Maine as states they honor and will honor their permit/license. They also left off a few states that honor their permit already. Their new law states they will honor anyone who honors theirs.

    I just talked to the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation and pointed out that the Governor of Iowa has not even signed their reciprocity bill yet and even if he did their new law does not go into effect till 1/1/11. Maine is not reporting that they have signed an agreement with WY. They told me they were signing agreements before listing states. I explained to them that some states would not sign agreements and ask how Iowa could sign if they didn't even have reciprocity in their law yet. I didn't get an answer to that.

    I would not depend on the Wyoming Official Site for carrying in other states or carrying in their state. I was told they would get back to me after they took another look at their list.

    Wyoming has also cut down on their site information. They have a notice up that this is due to budget cuts. Again I would be very cautious if traveling to Wyoming or if a Wyoming permit/license holder traveling to those states they have listed. Check with the state you will be traveling to. The DCI site states this at the top of their listing of states" "those states are listed below for convenience only. However, this listing has no legal effect."

    I will not add anything to the Wyoming page at Handgunlaw.us till I hear back from them and am sure that the states they have listed already honor their permit/license. I will post an update when info becomes available.

    Thanks Gary! It sometimes gets awful confusing, you'd need a book the size of a large phone directory to cover all the States and where you can and can't, etc.

    Wyoming has been a bit on the flaky side for the last year. Last I heard an "Offical Memo" got leaked dropping CO from the list, then it was retracted due to the influx of "What are you doing!?!", then a couple of months later, CO was dropped again.

    Who knows where they stand.

    I'm sure there is, and I am sure that he is wondering the same thing.

    is their newest list you are fine. They removed 4 states from their previous list. They should be adding 4 more states to the list shortly. MN, NH, IN and GA honor a WY permit and they should add them. Giving them a few days and then I will contact them again and tell them again about the four they haven't added.

    There should be... the state Attorney General. Sounds like he's kinda slacking at his job.

    That's is why we need a Federal Reciprocity Law which almost passed last year. Hoping in November 2010!

    They need to put Georgia back on the list quickly as I am heading to Sturgis, SD again this year and we spend a lot of time on our bikes in Wyoming. Awesome country!

    West Virginia is not going to be one of the states. I don't believe WV will sign with Wyoming. WV requires a 24/7 hot line to verify permit/licenses. I don't think Wyoming has that. West Virginia has to have a signed agreement to honor a state. The WVCDL is trying to change that. They didn't have luck with it this year. They will try again next year. They want WV to honor all other states permits.

    Section (N) indicates WY does have a 24/7 database. I've tried to contact WV AG about getting an agreement with WY's new law, but I get no response.

    Yea, our AG is a bit of a dinkus and apparently not a real fan or supporter of CCW - inspite of what the law says.

    it was due to his 'flaky' actions in dropping many other states in January 2009 that the new law was passed. The new law totally revoked the AG's authority to review (read: "Pick and Choose") what other state's permits WY would honor. Basically, if "they" honor ours, we honor theirs.

    And we came "this close" to having carry without a permit this time as well. Chairman of a commitee - who's stabbed gun's rights before - took it upon himself to kill that bill - never made it to the Senate floor for debate or vote.
