    "The ''Stand Your Ground" bill approved by the Wyoming Legislature has become law without Governor Matt Mead's signature.

    The governor on Wednesday evening declined to either sign House Bill 168 or veto it. That decision means the bill became law without his signature. The bill essentially extends the ''Castle Doctrine," which says Wyoming residents have no obligation to retreat when attacked in their homes, to public places as well."

    Unless there was a court ruling or law that repealed common-law stand your ground, the governor did not waste ink.
