(Wyo.)-Committee Moves Bills To Permit Guns In Schools

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 01/29/2013 02:40 PM
      CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Proposed federal restrictions on the assault weapons and high-capacity magazines would be unenforceable in Wyoming under a bill that has cleared its first state legislative committee hearing.
 
     The House Judiciary Committee voted 8-to-1 Tuesday to advance the bill, which would impose felony penalties on federal officials who attempted to enforce federal weapons bans. The bill now goes to the full House for consideration.
 
     The same committee earlier Tuesday endorsed a separate bill that would allow Wyoming citizens who hold concealed carry permits to carry guns on public school and college campuses.
 
     President Barack Obama has called for reinstituting the federal ban on assault weapons in the aftermath of last month's mass killing of school children at a Connecticut elementary school.
