Between states like Indiana and New Hampshire pushing for Constitutional Carry and court victories in places like California that are making May-Issue states an endangered species, so far this is a good year for the 2nd Amendment and common sense.
Common sense is poised for another big win as in Wyoming, a sensible thinking state rep by the name of Allen Jaggi introduced House Bill 114. A bill which passed the Wyoming House of Representatives without any watering down amendments by an overwhelming vote of 42-17.
What does HB 114 do? It outlaws the state of Wyoming from enforcing the fatal fallacy of Gun Free Zones. From the bill itself:
(a) This section shall be known and may be cited as the “Wyoming Repeal Gun Free Zones Act.”
(b) Persons holding a valid concealed carry permit 2 issued by the state of Wyoming under W.S. 6-8-104(a)(ii) may carry a concealed weapon in the following places:
(i) Any meeting of a governmental entity;
(ii) Any meeting of the legislature or a committee thereof;
(iii) Any public school, college or professional athletic event whether or not related to firearms;
(iv) Any public elementary or secondary school facility; and
(v) Any public college or university facility without the written consent of the security service of the college or university.
The only government establishment that this law doesn’t cover is inside of courtrooms. Nor does it force private property owners from having to allow firearms onto their premises.
