    Wyoming law allowing guns without permit prompts doubts

    (Reuters) - Gun-control advocates on Thursday called a new Wyoming law that allows residents to carry concealed weapons without a permit a "troublesome trend" in Western states.

    Wyoming's Republican Governor Matt Mead on Wednesday signed the permit-free gun bill into law. Beginning July 1, residents who want to pack handguns will no longer have to undergo a criminal background check or show proficiency with a firearm.

    I am pleased to see progress on this issue. Bearing arms is a fundamental human right and today the State of Wyoming has taken a major step to recognizing that right and abolishing intrusive measures that would limit it.

    This is the second article on Wyoming you have posted today. Damn it, quit posting them. If you keep it up, I just might end up moving there.

    I think this is fine for Wyoming. Wyoming is the least populous state, and so doesn't suffer from social issues that more urbanized states, such as California, facee. I also doubt that Wyoming is a major hub for organized crime, which is one reason why some states pass laws on prohibiting ex-cons from purchasing or owning a firearm.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    It's Wyoming. I'm not sure why this is even making headlines.

    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.

    We realize it's "fly over" country to many of you lefties.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Gotta wonder how many people looked up Wyoming on wikipedia before posting here. lol (I admit that I did just to see if they were accurate in stating it was the least populated)

    Wha?

    I was just stating facts. When you have more Senators than Representatives, you're officially not a huge influence on the rest of the country. With a small population lacking much cultural diversity, it's much easier to get things done. Like passing what would normally be a very controversial bill.

    I'm not bashing small populations though. Just look at places like Sweden and Denmark, you can practically eat off the streets there.

    We have the same law going through our State Congress now. I hope it passes!
