A measure to do away with gun free zones around both K-12 schools as well as colleges and universities sailed through the Wyoming House in a 42-17 vote Monday.
The bill would allow those with state-recognized concealed carry permits to bring their handgun with them while visiting or attending school events or classes.
Rep. Allen Jaggi, R-Lyman, the legislation’s sponsor, feels that gun free zones that prohibit concealed carry are public safety risks, saying, “No matter how many laws we have, the people who are there to do harm don’t care about our laws.”
