Recent reports from FBI crime statistics show, Wyoming ranks the 11th safest state in the US.

However, Cheyenne comes in as the most dangerous city in the Cowboy State.

As a state, Wyoming had the lowest robbery rate in the nation at .11 percent per capita.

Crime statistics also show, the capital city ranking above average for arson, burglary and vehicle theft, but below the U.S. average for violent crimes, such as murders and robberies.

This gun store owner believes people in town do a great job of protecting their homes and their families.

"Obviously being a well armed society in Cheyenne, I do believe with that, we are able to curb violent crimes," Frontier Arms and Supplies Ryan Allen said.

"Quite frankly with Laramie County being the most armed county in the country, I believe that puts us a step above the rest when it comes to our own personal safety," Frontier Arms and Supplies Ryan Allen said.

Wyoming News Now"s coverage will continue in the coming days surrounding new gun laws being discussed during the 2020 Legislative session.
