CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming lawmakers won’t be considering a bill that would have banned local gun control laws, such as one recently passed in Casper.

The House rejected taking up House Bill 60 on Wednesday.

The bill was sponsored by state Rep. Kendall Kroeker of Evansville and would have specified that only the state can regulate the sale or use of guns and ammunition.

In December, the Casper City Council passed an ordinance barring people from openly carrying weapons at city government meetings.

State law prohibits people from carrying concealed weapons at meetings but it doesn’t ban people from openly carrying them.
