Wyoming Concealed Firearms Permit Process FAQs:
Q. Wait a minute Shepard, do I have to have a government permit to exercise a natural human right guaranteed by the US Government’s Constitution?
A. No, of course not, that would be silly, wouldn’t it? If a government within the United States required you to have a permit to keep and bear arms, they would be in violation of the federal government’s constitutional amendment #2. If this was the case, you would need to contact the US Department of Homeland Security tip-line (866-DHS-2-ICE) and report your local domestic tyrants/terrorists.
In Wyoming, Constitutional Carry is allowed. In other words, if you would be eligible to get a Concealed Firearms Permit (Not a wife-beater, felon etc) then you may carry a firearm open or concealed within the state of Wyoming as long as you abide by its other rules.
Q. Well then, why would I want to get a CFP?
A. Reciprocity with other states. If you have a Wyoming CFP, many other state governments and their employees will recognize the Wyoming permit and allow you to keep and bear arms in their jurisdiction as well. Click on Wyoming at THIS SITE to see which states have reciprocity.
