Permits in Wyoming

With the debate going on over whether to drop the permit requirement in Wyoming for concealed carry, I did note the significant number of permit holders in the state. There are about 412,000 adults over age 18 in Wyoming. That implies about 5 percent of adults have a concealed handgun permit.

the state already has issued about 21,000 concealed-carry permits and has only rejected about 1 percent of applications. . . .

It looks like Wyoming will soon get rid of the requirement for law-abiding citizens to get a permit to carry concealed handguns.

Wyoming residents would be able to carry concealed guns without state permits under a bill that received preliminary approval in the state Senate Thursday.
Senators voted 21-8 in favor of the bill, Senate File 47, sponsored by Sen. Kit Jennings, R-Casper. It faces two more votes in the Senate before heading to the House for debate. . . .
