Good Afternoon Mr. Waltman,

A lot of what you seek is available on our website to include a copy of our
statute W.S.(6-8-104). These are the requirements in which the public needs
to follow in order to be approved or denied for a permit. The reasons for
revocation is also located within this statute. The only other policies we
have are within our Division and I will include that section.

https://rules.wyo.gov/Search.aspx?mode=1
(Please search Attorney General then the drop down box to Concealed firearm
permits)

We do not complete any firearms transactions within our state. All
available information and statistics should be available through the FBI
NCIS.

State statistic information regarding crimes with firearms are available on
our Division website under the Uniform Crime Reporting section this will
also include the annual stats for 2015 regarding how many permits were
issued and how many were revoked on page 104 of the 2015 report.

Our reciprocity between states is simply that our statute outlines that we
will recognize reciprocity with any and all states that will recognize
Wyoming. This is reflected on our map of reciprocal states.

Thank you,
