They laughed when I said I wanted to restore gun rights in Wyoming

I'm glad Wyoming "gets it".

Not really. Their "constitutional" carry law has many prohibited places. This is not what constitutional carry is about. They made it illegal to carry and engage in the political process. I guess the Wyoming legislators have reason to fear their (armed) constituents.

That's not entirely accurate. The restriction on certain places where concealed carry is prohibited was already a part of the law, before concealed carry without a permit passed.

There is not now and has not been a prohibition of carrying OPENLY while engaging in the political process. I myself have witnessed this before. For example, you may not carry concealed into a town council meeting, but you may carry openly. It may generate questions, but it is legal, and most town councils and county commissioners are familiar with the law.

I know concealed carry into a police station is illegal, but is open carry into a police station legal?

Your statement about illegal carry of a concealed firearm into a "police station" is not entirely accurate. W.S. 6-8-104 (t) and (t)(i) state:

(t) No person authorized to carry a concealed weapon pursuant to paragraphs (a)(ii) through (iv) of this section shall carry a concealed firearm into:

(i) Any facility used primarily for law enforcement operations or administration without the written consent of the chief administrator;

So, if you have permission from the Chief of Police, Sheriff, or the "chief administrator" you can carry a concealed firearm into a "police station".

However, there is no except for carrying a firearm into "any detention facility, prison or jail", the next paragraph in the statute.

Maybe it is just me, but I will not criticize foreword progress. Laws can be amended. I understand the general public's apprehension to the new constitutional carry laws. So if we strap on a good attitude, good facts, and a smile, along with our sidearm, we can be the people that change the attitudes of the "un-informed. I have spoken to many "California types" and had them seeing the whole picture by the time the conversation was over. Smile and teach. You will be amazed how many people will support you.

Very well said! Much as we've seen many freedoms restricted incrementally, we will most likely see more success in restoring those rights incrementally as well. Use the successful implementation of this law to push for fewer restrictions, and fewer, and fewer... :)

I tried to read the article. I really tried.

It appeared and I got through the first paragraph before it was replaced with an advertisement and MySpace link. I clicked to get back to the article to get through another two sentences before I got a pop-up and the article was also replaced with a Facebook log-in.

I got out of it all in time to get a warning that Firefox was using too much memory.

I guess I'll live in ignorance.

For some people... the glass will forever remain half full no matter what. Carrying in a police station? Really? Why? For what possible purpose? It's no wonder the anti's consider us goofs with this sort of nonsense coming from the depths of mommys basement. Constitutional Carry... no permit. That's not enough?

A free man should be able to carry ANYWHERE he desires to go. I see no exceptions at all.

Perhaps because other free men have the option and right of limiting/barring weapons on their own or public properties? Seriously... not all rights are absolute at all times in all places. Common sense and moderation = Responsibility.

When you get Constitutional Carry in GA... let us know how that works out for ya.

Not talking about private property. PRIVATE owners may do as they wish.

What I was referring to is PUBLIC property. The "owners" you speak of are the PEOPLE....Not the government.


And yes another "if you ain't from around here your opinion is worthless"....Very refreshing.

Common sense and moderation is the motto of gun control.

The police (public servant employee) should have no problem when their master (the boss, employer/ we the PEOPLE) walk into the station armed! the servant should always fear the master, NEVER the other way around.

The police - by Constitutional restriction - do not have the authority to tell me "no". Therefore, I'm not concerned with their opinion on carrying in police stations when it's of no consequence, anyway.
