CHEYENNE -- Proposals to loosen gun regulations are likely to emerge when the Legislature convenes in early January.
The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting is spurring national leaders to call for tighter federal gun-control laws. But several Wyoming legislators say they are planning to sponsor legislation that would do the opposite.
Incoming Speaker of the House Tom Lubnau, R-Gillette, said he is drafting legislation that would end gun-free zones.
He said he still is working on the details and the bill has not yet been filed. But he said it could include allowing teachers and other staff to have guns in schools.
Lubnau said more gun restrictions will not necessary lead to less violence. He added that violent acts are routinely carried out with weapons other than guns.
He pointed to last months deadly bow-and-arrow attack at Casper College as one recent example.

I really want to move there
Thank you God for some sanity!
If you ever see Wyoming when the weather is bad you might change your mind. On I-80 the wind literally blows 18 wheelers over.
I’d love to move there too. Last time I was in Colorado someone mentioned there was a nearby state where the wind howled constantly, that isn’t Wyoming is it?
The wind is always blowing in Wyoming!
It’s not blowing here now. 3.4 mph, But it is overcast and there is no snow on the ground here yet.
All subject to change at any time.
Hubby & I moved here last year --- absolutely LOVE Wyoming.
Left Minnesota (the new socialist paradise) and came to a place where freedom really means something still
Absolutely best decision we ever made and yes, the winds do blow (a lot), but it is not as cold here as what we had in MN and the rugged beauty of the land can take your breath away.
Add the fact there is no state income tax and you have a winner !!
This is a common sense solution unlike most of the overreactions of both sides.
Howling winds keep the riffraff out.
You are correct.
That is why we are reverse engineering our wind turbines into fans.
Keeps the moonbats out.
time to end the gun free zone loophole
