    Concealed Weapons Bill Progresses
    January 21, 2011
    Reported by Catherine Bilkey

    Bills moved in the state legislature Friday. An amendment for the Concealed Weapons Bill failed, but the bill itself made it through second reading in the Senate.

    Senate File 47 would allow Wyoming residents to carry concealed guns without a state permit. According to its sponsor Kit Jennings, he\'s pushing the legislation because of gun-rights he says are guaranteed by the state and federal constitutions.

    “I took an oath twice now, once when I was elected the first time and once when I was reelected, to support, defend and obey the constitution of the United States and Wyoming, and I feel that\'s exactly what I’m doing,” said Jennings, a Republican representing Casper.

    Senator Chris Rothfuss, a Democrat representing Laramie, has voted against the bill twice now.

    “What I think this bill does is it puts a higher priority on the second amendment rights of the individual than the safety rights of another individual,” said Rothfuss. “So, we’re basically putting those concealed carry rights well ahead of, for example, my children’s right to safety.”

    Typical, using kids as human shields.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Looking like were going to get it this time around. Full house has to vote on it again, and they already passed it once. Then to the govenor who will sign it.



    http://spicyhotnews.com/wyoming-conc...committee.html

    CHEYENNE, Wyo. Wyoming residents would be able to carry concealed guns without a permit under a bill that has cleared a legislative committee. The House Travel, Recreation, Wildlife and Cultural Resources Committee voted 8-1 Friday.

    The House Travel, Recreation, Wildlife and Cultural Resources Committee voted 8-1 Friday in favor of the bill, sponsored by Casper Republican Senator Kit Jennings. It already has cleared the Senate and now goes to the full House.

    The committee amended the bill to specify that people couldn't carry concealed guns while intoxicated.

    If the bill becomes law, Wyoming would join Alaska, Arizona and Vermont as states that don't require citizens to have permits to carry concealed weapons.

    The wife has family in Laramie and due to being a university town it is rather a liberal place, and BTW Wyoming has had a CCW permit law for several years, this bill is no permit needed CCW.

    I love the Wyoming attitude; several years ago the wife and I were there with our 4X4 dually/slide-in camper and stopped in a National Forest Regional Office for detailed maps and to make sure I could park the camper anywhere I wanted. I also asked if there would be any problem OCing and having other weapons in the camper on NF lands. The ranger laughed and said "Hell this is Wyoming, everybody carries a gun here, with the meth problem we have on federal lands you'd be stupid not to carry a gun".

    On the way out of town we passed a dirt road with a half dozen mail boxes, there were 3 women standing by the mailboxes talking with 2 horses and 1 ATV near by, all 3 were wearing western style gun rigs, 2 did look like SA six guns the 3rd appeared to be a 1911 (probably the one riding the ATV as she looked younger than the other 2) again gotta love the Wyoming attitude.

    Wyoming House approves concealed carry bill

    Wyoming House approves concealed carry bill

    Associated Press - February 25, 2011 2:05 PM ET

    CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming House of Representatives has approved a bill to allow people to carry concealed guns without a permit.

    The House voted 49-9 for the bill on Friday. The Senate already has approved it. The bill now goes to Gov. Matt Mead.

    Proponents have emphasized that both the Wyoming and federal constitutions specify people have the right to carry guns.

    Opponents include some police groups who say the bill could encourage dangerous people to carry guns who wouldn't be able to pass a background check under the state's existing concealed-carry permit system.

    Wyoming would continue to issue concealed-carry permits even if the bill passes so citizens could have reciprocity with other states.

    Alaska, Arizona and Vermont already allow citizens to carry concealed guns without permits.

    And I'd be willing to bet that the same people could not pass a 4473 either, ergo not be able to purchase a gun from an FFL, which leaves private party sales, or various other means to illegally obtain one, and would be in just as much trouble to get caught with one.

    Way to go Wyoming!

    Colorado's version made it out of the judiciary committee and is on it's way to the floor.
