Wyoming has some of the worst gun laws in the country, earning an F in our Annual Gun Law Scorecard. In 2018, Wyoming enacted a dangerous “stand your ground” law that increases the likelihood of deadly public confrontations. In 2017, Wyoming had the eighth-highest gun death rate in the country and exported crime guns to other states at the fourth-highest rate.
