U. Wyoming May Regulate Guns Which Were Manufactured Out of State

U. Wyoming May Regulate Guns Which Were Manufactured Out of State

“university may bar a gun from being carried on campus if the gun was crafted somewhere other that Wyoming”

This just goes to show that people who want gun control will take any advantage they can find.

The College Fix reports:

University may regulate guns manufactured out-of-state, judge rules

A judge ruled this week that the University of Wyoming may regulate guns manufactured outside of Wyoming, highlighting a strange provision in a state law related to firearm freedoms in that state.

The Wyoming Firearms Freedom Act only prohibits the state’s regulating “firearms, firearm accessories and ammunition that are manufactured in Wyoming,” Judge Tori Cricken ruled this week, according to The Laramie Boomerang.

Cricken declared that, per Wyoming statute, the state’s university may bar a gun from being carried on campus if the gun was crafted somewhere other that Wyoming.

That ruling comes because of a clause in a state law that inadvertently applied firearm freedom protections only to guns made in the state, The Boomerang reports:

Prior to 2010, Wyoming statute indicated that “no city, town or county shall authorize, regulate or prohibit the sale, transfer, purchase, delivery, taxation, manufacture, ownership, transportation, storage, use or possession of firearms, weapons and ammunition.”

The law was then updated in 2010 to also include any “political subdivision or any other entity” as being barred from regulating guns. The 2010 revision also was updated to ban local governments from regulating the “carrying” of firearms.

However, those updates came as part of the Wyoming Firearms Freedom Act, which was mostly intended to exempt guns manufactured within Wyoming from federal regulation.

this is a boon for local gun makers. it’s laughable they think this will keep guns off-campus because all it’s going to do is Make Wyoming Great Again.

Seems to me that if the college bans imported guns while allowing domestic ones (as it must) it will have violated the dormant commerce clause, and will immediately be sued again. It must either ban both (which it can’t) or allow both.
