Is Cheyenne and Wyoming Gun Friendly?

Wyoming is one of the top 10 gun-friendly states. Alaska is number one.

Wyoming does not require a permit or registration to buy a gun, own a gun, or even to carry a gun. Prior to 2011, however, Wyoming was a shall-issue state. Wyoming has a stand-your-ground law for people in their own homes. This means that you can use deadly force against an intruder in your home if you are in fear for your safety and without the duty to retreat.

I lived in Alaska, where the radio station I worked at promoted a gun show at a local high school in Wasilla. Wouldn’t fly anywhere else. In the state of Alaska, a permit is not required to purchase a gun, own a gun, or even to carry a gun. In addition, they have no state restrictions on so-called “assault weapons” or NFA weapons. Alaska has castle doctrine and stand-your-ground laws which allow a person to use deadly force against anyone forcibly and unlawfully entering their home and attempting to harm them. The person using self-defense does not have a duty to retreat in most cases.

I find both Wyoming and Alaska gun laws fascinating.
