Wyoming is know for being one of the most heavily armed states in the union. A CBS study done in 2016 stated that the Cowboy State was the most heavily armed state, with 195.7 firearms for every 1000 residents (which was roughly three times higher to the second place Washington D.C.).

Considering how many firearms we have throughout the state, we asked residents how proficient they were, as far as proper etiquette and safety.

Over 90% of the people polled stated they correctly knew how to handle a gun. Less than 1% said they did not know how. Just under 8% said they didn't know how, but wanted to learn, which left under 1% that stated they were afraid of guns.
