Cheyenne, WY (AP) - New Jersey's biggest newspaper has a message for the least populated state in the nation: Butt Out.

The Star-Ledger newspaper in Newark published an editorial on Tuesday telling Wyoming to mind its own business. The editorial came after Wyoming asked the U.S. Supreme Court for permission to submit a brief supporting a New Jersey man who is challenging that state's concealed weapons law.

Wyoming made the request last week on behalf of itself and 18 other pro-gun states.

John M. Drake is challenging a provision in New Jersey law that says people seeking concealed carry permits must prove that they have a justifiable need.

The Wyoming brief says Wyoming and other states are concerned that if the law stands, it could threaten their less-restrictive concealed carry laws.
