New Concealed Carry Law Creates Some Concern


K2's Ophelia Young reports, oyoung@k2tv.com: 

The new concealed carry law is causing concerns with the Casper Police Department.  Before July 1st, to get a permit meant to pass training.  Today, no more permit needed, means no more training needed. 



Casper Police is worried the public won't receive proper training, which is why they're saying, it doesn't hurt to have a permit anyway. 

Permit applications will still be available at the Sheriff's Office.  Police say getting a permit is particularly the right move for traveling gun owners who want to legally carry a concealed weapon in another state. 

Though the permit is no longer required, permit provisions still apply.  For example, firearms will still be banned from schools and government buildings. 

Also some people, such as convicted felons, will still not be able to carry a weapon, period. 

Last but not least, don't think of doing anything illegal because the concealed weapon criminal charge will still remain in the books.
