Legislature considering allowing guns in governmental meetings

As the law currently stands, no one in Wyoming may carry a weapon gun into any meeting of any governmental entity; not school board meetings, not city council meetings and not legislative meetings. However, a bill that was introduced in the House yesterday could change that, and it is being called the "Wyoming Repeal Gun Free Zones Act." It would allow anyone who is legally allowed to carry a weapon to bring a concealed firearm into any governmental meeting, including legislative sessions and committee meetings. It does, however, make it clear that this bill maintains the gun ban in courtrooms. The bill passed introduction into the House of Representative yesterday with a 47-13 vote. (See how your legislators voted here .) The bill is now being reviewed and debated by the Judiciary Committee. HB86 is sponsored by Rep. Kendall Kroeker, R-Natrona County; Rep. Mark Baker, R-Sweetwater County; Rep. Allen Jaggi, R-Uinta County; Sen. Cale Case; R-Fremont County; and Sen. Curt Meier, R-LaGrange.
