A look at Wyoming


This post is not associated with any article in particular but more of a personal inquiry. I know that anyone in Wyoming who is legaly eligible to purchase a gun can concealed carry without a permit or background check. However, according to Wyoming Statue 6-8-104, a person can not carry a concealed weapon at:

(vi) Any school, college or professional athletic event not related to firearms;


(x) Any college or university facility without the written consent of the security of the college or university


I contacted the University of Wyomings Police Department for clarification. According to the officer I spoke with, a student must meet with the Chief of Police and argue as to why he/she wants to conceal carry on campus. It is solely up to the Chief of Police to grant permission to the student to conceal carry a firearm or to deny their request.
