House Committee Approves Two Gun Bills
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The House Judiciary Committee has endorsed two bills addressing where people are allowed to carry guns.The panel voted 5-3 Monday to endorse a bill that would ban deadly weapons from courtrooms and unanimously endorsed a second bill that would allow people to carry a concealed gun into a government meeting. Both measures head to the full House for debate.
House Bill 216 would put into law the common practice now of banning deadly weapons from courtrooms in the state. Supporters say it would remove any doubt that weapons are not allowed in the courtroom.
House Bill 200 would allow people to carry concealed weapons into a government meeting, except the Legislature. Currently people can openly carry a gun into a government meeting but not a concealed gun.
