Gun bills clear Senate committee

Modified: Thursday, Feb 16th, 2017

CHEYENNE – The Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday gave the nod to a pair of bills, which would allow concealed weapons to be carried on college campuses and into government meetings across the state.

Both bills cleared the Wyoming House of Representatives before moving on to the Senate.

House Bill 136 allows individuals with concealed carry permits to go armed on college campuses, doing away with so-called “gun-free zones.” The companion bill, HB 137, would allow anyone – concealed carry permit holder or not – to enter any government meeting armed, including sessions of the Wyoming Legislature.
