Cheyenne Studies Rules For Guns In City Buildings

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Cheyenne city officials are considering new regulations on carrying weapons into city buildings.

Mayor Rick Kaysen tells the Associated Press that new regulations could clarify gray areas in state laws, which prohibit concealed weapons at government meetings but not open-carry weapons.

Kaysen says the gun question is part of a larger discussion about improving building safety, which he says began before the Connecticut school shootings.

Laramie County Commission Chairman Troy Thompson says county officials aren’t considering similar changes.

Thompson has a concealed-carry permit but declined to say whether he carries a firearm at the courthouse. He says that’s a personal question and he would rather not have people know.

State law generally prohibits local governments from enacting gun control regulations stricter than state statute.
