    They still honor Utah's non-resident so I'm still OK. Mike

    So Wyoming dropped 14 states from their reciprocity agreements?

    What a shame! Such a wonderful state from the outside looking in.

    This perfectly illustrates why we need national uniformity of concealed carry laws for interstate visitors. Every State should set its own standards for its own residents while in that State. But American citizens shouldn't be disarmed at the border when they cross from one State to another if they are just visiting or passing through.

    I tend to agree with WY generally since I believe they should honor permits from all states that have equal or more stringent guidelines in terms of qualifying for a permit. But I want to know some specific details especially with regard to my own state, TN.

    Added: Their website says nothing about any changes. What is the source of the information? http://attorneygeneral.state.wy.us/dci/CWP.html

    I've corrected the title of the thread.

    I occupy a funny little corner of the nation. I have a ME resident permit, a NH non-resident permit, and then there's VT. Beyond that there's this long, vast swath of non-gun territory where I cannot carry. No state has reciprocity with mine, perhaps because our permit is so broad (an AK is A-OK). I suppose it would be nice to have reciprocity somewhere, but the only states outside of my odd little corner of the nation where I do any significant amount of travelling are VERY anti-gun.

    To me this is a perfect example of why they need to acknowledge an individual's right to carry whatever they want, however they want and mind their own business.

    As a Wyoming resident, I have to say that doesn't really make much sense.
    Nebraska, Idaho, and Colorado no longer honored ? I'm not sure I understand
    exactly what Wyoming is attempting to accomplish by not accepting these
    neighbor states. Also, it is odd to me that half of the states that will be
    honored are eastern seaboard. A step in the wrong direction, in my opinion.

    Boo, Wyoming. Boo.

    Believe me when I say that this pisses me off. I understand it, but I feel we should be able to have a permit that works in every state just like the drivers license. I just sent a letter to the Attorney General, Bruce Salzburg. I hope all of you will do the same with respectful letters requesting that he change the direction Wyoming is headed in this issue.

    I will be calling his office tomorrow.

    It would be useful to know the back story on this. Was this politically motivated, simply the outcome of a routine review, or the result of a bad case?

    The attorney general's statement explained the reason behind this quite well. If you are still wondering if this was politically motivated, go back and re-read what he said.

    The main reason the states were removed is because those states would issue CCW permits to people who had misdemeanor drug violations. Wyoming will not allow its own residents to have a CCW permit if they have misdemeanor drug convictions, so why would they possibly want to let an out of state person with misdemeanor conviction carry?

    Some states are going to reciprocate us out of business for traveling on our permits. I wonder if that is the unstated purpose behind some of this. OTOH, issuing to persons convicted for misdemeanor drug offenses is pretty stupid, also.

    Probably a good reason to just go with AK/NH type permissive unlicensed carry and be done with the whole mess. I really don't like the idea of anyone and everyone carrying, because I don't trust anyone and everyone.

    But neither do I like politicians fine-tuning personal defense issues that put other people at risk, in-state or out of state. All it does is breed (richly deserved) contempt.
