Wyoming Gun Bills.
It's that time of year again. Wyoming legislature is in session, and I'm perusing the list of bills on http://legisweb.state.wy.us. This is the first one I've come across so far. HB 114, repeal "Gun Free Zones". I copied and pasted and tried to clean it up as best I could for readability.
A BILL for AN ACT relating to concealed weapons;
creating a Wyoming Repeal Gun Free Zones Act; creating exceptions for the
carrying of concealed weapons by permit holders as 3specified;and providing for an effective date.
Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Wyoming:
