    Cool Our Neighbors to the East (Wyoming) got Constitutional Carry

    Our friends in Wyoming got Constitutional Carry effective in July

    See: http://trib.com/news/state-and-regio...91bd90c6d.html

    We might be able to leverage this news on the Utah Legislature.

    Beware NON- residents of Wyoming.... THIS NEW STATUTE ONLY APPLIES TO WYOMING RESIDENTS!!!!!

    According to the AP linked article Concealed carry without a permit ONLY legal for Wyoming residents after the July effective date. Residents of any other state will need a permit that is recognized by Wyoming to legally conceal! I have not read the specific bill to see any other particulars---- YET!

    Thumbs up Congratulations to Wyoming Anyway - "warts and all"

    Even with the prohibition on non-residents and the requirement that you be a legal resident of Wyoming for 6 months or more, it is still good news and if leveraged correctly, can put pressure on the UT legislature to follow suit. Besides, Wyoming residents can put pressure on their legislature to cure the "warts" on their Bill down the road. A good reason for doing so would be to promote Wyoming tourism among 2nd Amendment loving Citizens of neighboring States.

    As an RV enthusiast, I will not go camping or be a tourist in any State that does not honor my UT permit (except for WI where I have family). As a 2nd Amendment lover, I vote with my dollars.

    Concealed Carry Gun Law is evolving from "maybe issue" to "shall issue" to "Constitutional Carry". Every State that adopts Constitutional Carry puts pressure on the other "shall issue" States and even the "right denied" States of Illinois and Wisconsin.

    Please don't misunderstand my previous comment--- it was only to make sure that little tidbit about being a Wyoming resident for this to have a direct result for most gun owners/carriers.

    Agree completely about using ANY and ALL legal weapons to our benefit towards a goal of returning to GUN FREEDOM and a small constitutional based government instead of the monstrous behemoth we have NOW!
