House Debates Firearms Rights Restoration

Cheyenne, WY – The Wyoming House will debate the restoration of gun rights in domestic violence cases. Senate file 64 would remove the record of someone convicted of a misdemeanor if they lose those gun rights. Senator Cale Case of Lander says people convicted of a domestic violence offense cannot get gun rights restored under the Brady Bill. His beill gives people an avenue to petition for the restoration of those rights. Wyoming Police Chiefs and Sheriff's lobbyist Byron Odekoven favors the bill because it requires someone to apply through the court. He says it would then be up to the court to decide if a person remains a threat or can have gun rights restored.
