Wyoming House Approves Bill Allowing Guns in Schools

February 03, 2015  | 

Legislation that would allow people with concealed-gun permits to carry firearms into public schools and government meetings won easy approval from the Wyoming House of Representatives on Monday after a debate over rising gun violence in U.S. schools, reports Reuters.

The bill, supported by leaders of the Republican-led House, would repeal "gun-free zones" carved out around elementary and secondary schools, as well as colleges and universities.

Passed on a 42-17 vote, the measure also would grant concealed-carry permit holders the right to take their guns into meetings of the state Legislature and local government meetings.

Thank God some people are coming their senses. If there is ever a major natural disaster the only way law enforcement will last longer that 24 hours is with a strong well armed citizen base to support them. This needs to happen all over the USA. The whole time I was a peace officer I never had any fear of being harmed by citizens. I always kept in mind that I was a citizen before and I would be a citizen after. Cops have to keep it in mind that they are nothing more than a citizen that has been granted extraordinary powers by statute. It is really good to see the Wyoming legislature had the courage to do this.
