    Re: Wyoming law allowing guns without permit prompts doubts

    A year from now I expect the crime rate to drop. This is a good thing all around.

    I only wish California had some Patriotic legislators instead of a bunch of limp wrist, weak kneed Liberals.

    Yes, and there are some really pretty areas. Not a lot, but definitely a few. Plus it is really nice. My mother plans to buy a house there in a year or two. She loved it when she lived there.

    Mayor Snorkum understands that a similar law is on the books for the entire United States, but the Mayor also understands that the United States government has refused to obey it's own laws for nearly a century now, and so many people accept this as normal that it's become the rule, not the exception.

    You're talking about Wyoming, the state with that gigantic national park in the northwest corner? Not to mention the Grand Tetons National Forest?

    Wyoming is one of the cooler states, and it's remained that way because it is so thinly populated.

    If you wish desolation, check out Oakland, California, or South Central LA, with it's massive and totally ineffective gun prohibitions.

    Yes, the national park that is also partly in Montana.

    Such has always been a States Right to regulate...but even so no state has the right to infringe upon private ownership in totality as the City of Chicago and the District of Columbia have found out. It is up to the citizens of each state to decide whether or not a state permit must be issued to arm oneself in PUBLIC...but there is no prohibiting ownership in the privacy of your own property. And what sane Citizen would authorize private ownership of Nuclear arms or heavy military attack weapons such as 50 Cal. machine guns..etc.? But...even if a state like Wyoming should authorize UNLIMITED ARMS, a neighboring state could make it against the law carry certain weapons into that state. Even as much as some progressives do not like the fact.....THE STATES BILL OF RIGHTS (amendments 1-10) have not been rescinded, and the State Constitutions are used for more than Federal **** Paper.

    It's the tenth largest and least populated state in the U.S.

    Gun control doesn't really seem like much of an issue, considering that aside from the occasional range war, there just isn't much going on there.
    Now you know why not much CRIME has been going on there...no? They used to hang horse thieves and rapists.

    You don't need a permit to own or openly carry a firearm; you only need a permit to carry one under your jacket, which will remain the case until July 1.
