Federal law requires firearms dealers to obtain a license from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF), although resource limitations prevent the ATF from properly overseeing all its licensees.

Wyoming does not require firearms dealers to obtain a state license or otherwise significantly regulate firearms dealers. For information about Wyoming’s laws (or lack of laws):

Wyoming law prohibits discrimination by financial institutions against a firearm entity because it engages in or supports lawful commerce of firearms.1
