    More appropriately called the constitutional carry bill. Wyoming becomes the fourth!

    Wyoming law excludes me!

    Hello All,

    I am also very jealous of Wyoming residents.

    My wife and I, and some relatives, are going to Grand Teton, Yellowstone, and Bridger-Teton National Forest next summer. We will LOC. We will have bear spray as our first line of defense against ursus horribilis, if that does not work in a confrontaion that we will try to avoid, we will have at least one 44 magnum at the ready. There were 5 documented ursus horribilis attacks in the greater Yellowstone area, with two deaths, and more injured people. These incidents happened last year.

    The Wyoming Law restricts Constitutional Carry to residents of Wyoming. In light of SCOTUS rulings, this section of the law may be unconstitutional.

    On another note, Constitutional Carry is specifically codified as legal in 93% of Montana. In Montana's incorporated cities, a person must have a CCW, or OC.

    Montana allows Constitutional Carry on 93% of its territory to citizens and legal aliens of the United States.

    I didn't know this. Do you happen to have a citation?
