    Default Wyoming Reciprocity and Your CCW Permit

    Anyone visiting Wyoming any time soon NEEDS TO READ THIS:


    Thursday, February 19, 2009

    In a drastic change from its longstanding policies, Wyoming will no longer recognize the Right-to-Carry permits of fifteen states. As of March 1, non-resident permit holders of these states will no longer be able to carry a firearm concealed for self-defense while visiting Wyoming. The sudden decision that these states' laws are not "similar" enough to Wyoming's to gain recognition comes directly from the office of Attorney General Bruce A. Salzburg (D) through the Wyoming Department of Criminal Investigation. As a result, only eight states will be allowed reciprocity with Wyoming.
    The intent of the original Right-to-Carry statute and the ensuing recognition law was to allow law-abiding individuals whose states’ standards were similar in nature to Wyoming to carry concealed there. With little to no problem since, Wyoming has been a stand out in allowing such freedoms to reign.
    Since this session's legislative deadlines have passed to fix this statutorily, it is vital that NRA members and the pro-firearms community contact the Attorney General's office and respectfully ask that they honor the intent of the original Right-to-Carry laws and re-authorize the reciprocity arrangements with those fifteen states. Attorney General Salzburg can be reached by phone at (307) 777-7841 or fax at (307) 777-6869.




    The states that are still recognized are:

    Connecticut
    Ohio
    Georgia
    Oklahoma
    Maryland
    Oregon
    Massachusetts
    Utah


    @UGA & Mods: I made this a sticky since current CCW printed info does NOT reflect this change in Wyoming laws, so current CCW holders could be left out of the loop.

    Does this mean if you are a resident of the 15 states, or if you have a non-resident permit for one of the 15 states?

    I hope that is not too confusing... some states allow non-residents to get permits, many people do it to gain reciprocity for states that don't honor their home state.
    It takes only seconds to call the police, waiting for them to arrive could take the rest of your life...

    That is pretty confusing isn't it.

    My wife has a non-resident Utah permit, so will she or won't she be able to carry in Wyoming?

    Hmmm.

    Either way, I'm still hosed.
