Good morning, and welcome to Cowboy State Daily Radio News for Thursday, August 31, 2023

Today’s top stories:

A restoration of rights in Wyoming for nonviolent felons includes the right to keep and use firearms, but whether that means they can pass a federal background check still isn’t clear.

As the family of a 15-year-old Cheyenne girl killed in a drive-by shooting mourns, so does the family of the 17-year-old accused of pulling the trigger.

A UH-1 helicopter from F.E. Warren Air Force Base crashed and flipped upside down on a runway at Cheyenne Regional Airport on Wednesday morning. 

A growing homeless population has the city of Casper taking notice, with what Mayor Bruce Knell estimates to be a population of around 200 people now roaming the city’s streets and parks, causing a situation he describes as “a mess.”

And pushing one’s luck with large wild critters seems to be all the rage in Yellowstone National Park this year – and to make matters worse, people are getting their small children involved.
