(Riverton, Wyo.) – “There are a lot of untrained people out there,” said former Riverton Police Captain and and gun safety instructor Mark Stone of Riverton. That’s a situation Stone said he would like to change. As Wyoming is now a “concealed/carry” state, meaning residents here can carry sidearms without a permit, Stone told a recent personal protection class that they “need to keep themsevles from being a victim. We live in a different world that we grew up in,” he said. “Random shootings happen every day, in schools, shopping malls or hospitals, and gun-free zones invite the bad guy in.” he said.
