No, I refuse to drink the Kool Aid, this is not at all about “officer safety” it is about power and control. It is about the taking of Freedoms and Liberty from the American people, not just the people of Wyoming!
When Constitutional Carry Legislation is brought forth like HB-113 the ANTI-GUN POLICE UNION begins to lobby the legislature with the mantra “we just want to keep our officers safe” as if somehow law abiding citizens are the threat. The legislators even treat these lobbyists as an authority, forgetting the duty to represent the people and protect their “Second Amendment Rights” guaranteed to them by the Constitution.
The Venomous Union will stop at nothing, even performing background checks on law abiding gun rights advocates. These tactics don’t belong in Wyoming, it’s time the ANTI-GUN POLICE UNION stops lumping “Law abiding citizens” in with the COP KILLERS!
Here’s the truth about the COP KILLERS – they are Career Criminals!
