Lawmakers: Allow Concealed Guns On Campus

Townsquare Media

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming teachers and others over age 21 who hold firearms permits could carry concealed guns at schools and college campuses under a bill pending introduction at the state Legislature.

Rep. Allen Jaggi, a Republican from Lyman, is the main sponsor of the bill. It would require a two-thirds vote for introduction in the House of Representatives.

Jaggi said he believes the bill would improve school security by allowing innocent people to defend themselves.

Chris Boswell is Vice President for Governmental and Community Affairs at the University of Wyoming.

Boswell says the UW administration favors the current approach under which no one but trained law enforcement may carry concealed weapons on campus or at sporting events without approval from the UW police chief.
