Always encouraging - another victory for the Second Amendment:

CHEYENNE, Wyo. — A law that allows Wyomingites to carry concealed weapons without permits goes into effect today.

The new law, strongly supported by gun rights advocates, received the overwhelming endorsement of the Legislature last winter.

Wyoming joins Alaska, Arizona and Vermont in allowing citizens to carry concealed handguns without undergoing background checks or firearms training.

Residents are still encouraged to get a concealed weapons permit, as Wyoming permits are honored in 34 other states, but are otherwise allowed the means to defend themselves at will. At least some lawmakers, somewhere, are doing something right.
