Wyoming Shoots Down Guns On College Campuses

Wyoming residents will not be able to carry guns on College Campuses in the state, after a bill was defeated this week in the Wyoming State Senate. House Bill 136, which would have allowed concealed carry on Wyoming college campuses, was killed yesterday. The bill was roundly criticized by the College administrators in the
state. However, two other bills that would allow guns to be carried into
government meetings and in Wyoming public schools were passed by the senate. House Bill 137 would allow people to carry guns at the Wyoming State Legislature and at local government meetings, while House Bill 194 would give school districts the ability to decide whether or not to authorize people to carry guns within their local schools. Opponents of the bills say guns in government building and schools will do little to make residents safer, and may actually exacerbate serious situations. Supporters say guns at government buildings will help prevent violent attacks from occurring, and that guns in schools, especially those in rural areas, would allow the schools to better respond in the event of a school shooting. The bills must be voted on two more times before they head to Governor Matt Mead’s desk for a vote.
