Bill proposed in the Wyoming Legislature would seek to repeal most gun-free zones in the state
A bill proposed in the Wyoming Legislature would repeal some current gun control laws, and allow citizens to carry concealed guns on school grounds and in several other public places around the state.
According to the Casper Star-Tribune, Senate File 75 was introduced Thursday and sponsored primarily by Republican Sen. Anthony Bouchard of Cheyenne.
Bouchard said the bill was drafted in response to public places that limit where firearms are allowed to be carried, including schools and the University of Wyoming. The bill also says gun restrictions would be preempted in governmental meetings and college or professional athletic events.
The bill would not pre-empt any private property rights or impact restrictions currently in place from Wyoming’s concealed carry laws.
