    Hey all,

    My gorgeous, gun-friendly state of Wyoming has passed the Jaggi-Jennings Constitutional Carry Bill by a wide margin, both House and Senate. It just needs to get signed by Governor Mead and we're the 4th Con-Carry state!

    Sorry if this has been posted, but I couldn't find it in a search. :)

    Great day to be a gun owner in WY.

    So jealous, if only we could do this in Wisconsin. (A gun unfriendly state)

    So - a couple years ago Wyoming declared it would not honor other state CCW permits because of their misdemeanor drug use conviction exception. Was that repealed/changed or does it even matter now...

    Can any lawful gun owner from out of state carry without a permit there or does it only apply to WY residents?

    I was just coming to ask the same question as leadcounsel, so +1. I'd like to do some hunting in WY and of course would prefer to take a pistol with me.

    Thank you for letting us know the good news, you have made my day!. Serious this makes me happy, the more states join in on constitutional carry the more will follow.

    Congrats to you fortunate folks in Wyoming! The Gov here said he would sign the CC permit sometime this year. That would be a start here in the right direction.

    So what does this mean? Does this make WY like Vermont where law abiding citizens can carry freely without a permit? I think Alaska is like that too. Who's the fourth?

    I love Wisconsin...the kids live up there in Madision. It would be great to be able to take my gun up there.

    I am in Indiana. We're pretty darned gun-friendly and every law abiding citizen can get a permit...but it is a permit nonetheless ("License to Carry and Handgun" to be precise).

    Good luck Badger State on getting concealed carry.

    Congrats to the Cowboy State. We are working on it in Colorado, just passed out of judicial committee; however, we have some antis here and I am not sure which way the new Governor will jump if it gets to him. Keep shootin'

    Sorry, galena, but here's your clue: he's a representative of the Democratic [sic] party with a long record of anti-Second Amendment bigotry. Denver wants to be the San Francisco of the Rocky Mountains.

    Wyoming is the 4th. In order, it's AK, VT, AZ & WY.

    Vermont, Alaska and Arizona are more about the human right the Constitution affirms.

    Wyoming and South Carolina are different. They limit this right to residents only.

    Just hope the Gov will sign it.

    Wyo will keep it's concealed carry law to enable those with permits to travel to other states that presently honor our CCW law.

    The CCW also enables one to buy a gun without having to undergo a clearance check.

    You got a license... Good.... Here's your gun.

    Congrats! The legislature in Montana is working on a Constitutional Carry bill, and the usual suspects are yowling like little girls getting their pigtails yanked - no offense to the ladies who frequent the forum btw.

    Link to the text of the bill? I am a WY resident attending college in CO but I go back all the time.

    Nevermind, I found it. Unfortunately, the age requirement of 21 still stands. I was hoping it was dropped to 18. Oh well, baby steps and all that.

    harrygunner has it right.
    I don't know why some people are calling the bills in Wyoming and South Carolina "Constitutional Carry". These are bills to allow "only law abiding residents of those states" to carry without a permit. Law abiding non-residents/visitors will still need a permit to carry. It's definitely a step forward but it's not Constitutional carry.

    Vermont, Alaska and Arizona will still be the only states that respect the Second Amendment right of 'all' citizens.

    It isn't "law" just yet, and we have a R.I.N.O. governor. Time will tell. :uhoh:

    It's great to see states affirming the Constitution.
