"I'm very concerned about a situation now that anybody who goes out to the store and buys a weapon and has no idea of what to do with it can be walking next to me and my kids," Rothfuss said.

Looks like it's time to move. http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/images/smilies/shaking.gif

Although:


The Senate voted 18-11 against an amendment that would have allowed citizens from other states to carry concealed weapons in Wyoming.

The 14th Amendment will take care of that. Get the system in place, then Gray can go do his thing in Cheyenne. :chris:

I grew up in Wyoming and look for every opportunity to move back! My sister is still there and has her CCW. It took her about $20 and less than 30 days to have it in hand. They do require a class that covers safety and the laws. They are a shall issue state already, so this legislation would not have a real big impact on the state.

I'm thinking that applies to WY non residents carrying without a permit. WY already has reciprocity with or honors many other state's permits.

They can already do this as Open Carry is legal there.:rolleyes::rolleyes:

The more states that go constitutional carry the harder it is for the hold outs to prove a "compelling state interest"

Good news, I am very happy that in SOME states, SOME things are moving in the proper direction!

Semi-constitutional carry?
1) Denying adults 18-20 the right to carry as they see fit.
2) Denying American citizens the right to carry as they see fit.

That's cool! By the end of this year, I expect half a dozen "constitutional carry" states. It helps us here by destroying all the "compelling interest" arguments.

Am I correct in believing California DOES NOT honor any other state's CCW permits. But that there are a handful of states which DO honor CCW's from the PRK?

You are correct.
And I believe a California ccw is recognized by 13 states, someone correct me if I'm off there.

The article mentions clarification of carry rights for retired law enforcement. I thought there was federal law that handled this. Anyone know what this Wyoming "clarification" would refer too?

I'd be interested to know what states honor our CCW.

I don't know for sure, but I'll take a guess.

A recent case involving what are likely to be upcoming retiree issues under LEOSA arose in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, in a case handed down in Ord v. District of Columbia, No. 08-7094 (D.C. Cir. Dec. 4, 2009) which reversed a federal court's decision to dismiss a case seeking a ruling about the ability of an individual to carry his firearm into the District of Columbia under the LEOSA, allowing the case to be heard in Federal District Court. The individual, qualified in the Commonwealth of Virginia under LEOSA had filed suit because of the District's contention that they might arrest him for carrying his weapon into the District of Columbia, despite his qualifications under H.R. 218/LEOSA

If I'm wrong, well, then I'm wrong. Wouldn't be the first time.

CA 1 murder per 18.743 people

Should be

CA 1 murder per 18,743 people,
not 18.743
slight difference of 18, 724 PRK residents
