Wyoming Now Allows Constitutional “Permit-less” Carry For Non-Residents

Today July 1, 2021, a change to Wyoming’s constitutional carry law goes into effect.

Before today, carrying a firearm without a permit in Wyoming was only afforded to residents of the state. However, Wyoming House Bill 116 provides that non-residents in Wyoming may also carry a firearm without first obtaining a permit.

When lawmakers debated the bill, Sen. Troy McKeown made the following statement:

If someone is willing to go into a grocery store and kill people, they are not going to flinch at carrying a gun illegally…we can’t legislate crime away. If we could we would have already done it.

There are still requirements that one must meet before carrying without a permit.

Refer to Wyoming Statute 6-8-104, which lists the criteria.
