She is so psychologically dysfunctional that she even wants police officers listed on the gun owner registry.

January 16, 2016

Seriously, there are people in this world so warped in their thinking that they can compare those in the freedom and liberty movement to the lowest of perverts. Go here to read about this…

Should time permit I think that I will start a new page, and play out the stereotypes that are tossed around. Now, that would be an interesting play on the psychology that makes up those of The Tyranny of the Majority that is today’s curse of Political Correctness.

One sick puppy; Can’t this POTUS ever tell the truth about anything?

January 12, 2016

From Gun Owners of America:

The president conducted another dog-and-pony show last week during a CNN-sponsored “Town Hall.”

The president trotted out several worn-out lies, like his claim that guns are more likely to kill you than save your life.

He even had the audacity to say that background checks are necessary since we wouldn’t otherwise know if drug dealers were buying guns.

Really?!? Has the president already forgotten Fast & Furious — when his administration gave green lights to known criminals so they could purchase firearms and smuggle them south of the border?

Of course he didn’t forget, but this president doesn’t care about facts or statistics that don’t support his ambitious gun control agenda.

The United States is experiencing record low crime rates, but Obama continues to pursue his anti-gun agenda in spite of the fact that murder rates are at their lowest levels in 25 years.

Nevertheless, Obama tried to make his radical agenda sound like it’s simply a few tweaks here and there — ignoring, of course, that his oath to uphold the Constitution should prevent him from imposing any “infringements” on gun rights at all.

GOA on the Front Lines

Though the President’s media circus last Thursday night was tightly controlled by the White House, GOA spokesmen have appeared on more than a thousand media outlets to discuss the President’s agenda.

You can view a few of them here:

* Larry Pratt Debunking the “Gun Show Loophole” on Fox Business News;

* A “tense” debate with a CNN host who attempted to keep me from debunking the anti-gun liberals’ talking points.

* Plus many more radio and TV appearances where GOA spokesmen have recently taken on Obama’s gun control proposals — all viewable at GOA’s YouTube page here.

Hey Buffalo Bill…

January 5, 2016

Buffalo Bill Cody is probably turning over in his grave!

Tomorrow (Jan 6) in Cody WY the school board is having what they call a ‘special meeting’ that includes both school board members and state legislators about…guns in schools.

This meeting is so ‘special’ – that they decided the meeting shouldn’t be advertised to the public.

The truth is, they don’t want you to know!

You see, Park county’s anti-gun school superintendent Ray Schulte is working hard to ensure law abiding Citizens like YOU are NEVER allowed to exercise the God-given right to self defense.

And just what is Schulte pushing?

He is in support of legislation strikingly similar to Senator Hank Coe’s substitute bill that effectively derailed the repeal of gun free zones in Wyoming.

And this isn’t the first time superintendent Schulte has been on the wrong side of your right to keep and bear arms. The more that you see him in action, the more you realize he is aligned with Joe Biden, the author of gun free zone legislation.

Here’s the low down…

Schulte in his capacity as superintendent of schools in Torrington Wy —-> testified against repealing gun free zones in a Wyoming Senate committee in 2012.

It was at this moment we discovered that superintendent Schulte doesn’t even trust the citizens who submit to a full background check.

Schulte stated in open committee, “I spoke with our police chief and he told me there over two thousand permit holders right here in out district, can you imagine all of them being in the school at the same time?”

It was shortly after, that the Goshen School board had enough of Schulte…

In June of 2012 the school board voted against Schulte and one board member even stated publicly that, “the superintendent wasn’t doing a good job” and “his salary was too high.”

The Torrington headline actually read, “District Superintendent Ray Schulte does not have the full support of the Goshen County School Board.”

Sadly by the following year, the folks in Cody took him in as their new school superintendent, at an even higher salary of $150,000 a year.

It should be noted that instead of inviting the public to a meeting where the only agenda is about guns, Schulte invited several neighboring district board members – Now you know why it’s called a “special meeting.”

Please contact the following Park county school board members and let them know you are on to their scheme.

The Left Calls for Confiscating Your Guns in Wake of California Shooting


ACTION:  The anti-gun Left is pulling out the stops and is now calling for gun confiscation.  We have to meet “fire with fire.”  So forward this alert to ten people.  Encourage your pro-gun family and friends to sign up for GOA alerts.

And, you can also give Gift Memberships to your family/friends this holiday season.  We need your support and activism more than ever!


The Anti-gun Left Declares War on Your Gun Rights

President Obama took to the airwaves on Sunday night and told the nation we need more gun control. 

Hillary Clinton — the one who will most likely be the Democrat nominee for president in 2016 — recently called for an all-out war on guns, as well.

And then, for the first time since 1920, the New York Times published an editorial on the front page of their newspaper.

This is important because the editorial page of the Times reflects the thinking of the anti-gun Democrat Left.

And what is the theme of the Times‘ most important message in nearly a hundred years?

In two words:  Gun Confiscation.

The Left “drops the gloves,” calls for gun confiscation

The New York Times said this weekend that:

It is past time to stop talking about halting the spread of firearms, and instead to reduce their number drastically — eliminating some large categories of weapons and ammunition.It is not necessary to debate the peculiar wording of the Second Amendment. No right is unlimited and immune from reasonable regulation.

The Times continues that there would be no grandfather clause for the 300,000,000-plus firearms we currently own:

[I]t would require Americans who own these kinds of weapons to give them up for the good of their fellow citizens.

So there you have it.  You need to give up your guns — for the good of the country.

Ironically, the editors at The Washington Post are furious with the Times for letting the “cat out of the bag.”

They called the Times’ editorial “predictably polarizing.”

But as one insightful journalist noted, the Post editors are only upset because the Times’ piece confirms “every gun owner’s worst fear — namely, that all the talk about gun safety and reducing gun violence is just a sham, and the real agenda of the gun control movement is total confiscation.”

Gun confiscation has always been the goal of the anti-gun Left

Everyone has known that a Hillary presidency would result in greater restrictions on our Second Amendment rights.


Not a GOA member yet?  You can join Gun Owners of America today for only $20!


But now her mouthpiece at the Times has explicitly revealed what we knew already was the case — the Left wants to CONFISCATE YOUR GUNS.

Anti-gun radicals usually try not to say this publicly, because they know that talk of gun confiscation loses elections.

But when caught on “candid camera,” they tell you they want to confiscate guns.

Take Maryland’s Deputy Attorney General — a liberal Democrat — who was recently caught on hidden camera stating “we should ban guns altogether, period.”

Or remember when New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) said, in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting, that among the different gun control proposals that were being bandied about, “[gun] confiscation could be an option.”

Or when several Democrat state senators were caught on an open microphone in New Jersey saying, “We needed a bill that was going to confiscate, confiscate, confiscate.”

This is their agenda.

Anti-gunners blame YOU for massacres like San Bernardino’s

In its editorial, the Times lambasted pro-gun, Republican politicians who “abet would-be killers by creating gun markets for them, and voters allow those politicians to keep their jobs.”

That’s what the Left thinks of you.  They think that your rights and freedoms … that your guns which have NEVER harmed anyone — are the problem because you are aiding and abetting killers.

These are the stakes we face in the 2016 elections.

If Clinton wins, we can expect her to push the same Times’ agenda, which will include the elimination of “large categories of weapons and ammunition” — probably by executive fiat.

And we can expect the Obama-packed courts to roll over and ignore the “peculiar wording of the Second Amendment.”

You have eleven months before the November, 2016, elections.

And everything we believe in is at stake.

Please forward this alert and encourage your pro-gun family and friends to sign up for GOA alerts.

And take this holiday season as an opportunity to give Gift Memberships to your family and friends.

We need your support and activism more than ever!

More shenanigans in Wyoming

September 11, 2015

Yesterday on your behalf, I testified at Cheyenne’s city council on the record and against an egregious scheme that will place power in a small group of politically appointed bureaucrats.

This so-called Human Rights Advisory Council measure was led by (Phony Republican) Cheyenne city councilman Dicky Shanor.

The push for these shady local councils – is modeled directly after the similarly named “United Nations Human Rights Advisory Council” – and they first started popping up in San Francisco and neighboring California communities during the mid sixties.

Today these United Nations styled Human Rights Councils span America from coast to coast. And wouldn’t you know, they all have one thing in common…the United Nation’s demand for the confiscation of guns from American citizens as a “human right” for safety.

These councils use a variation of the Delphi-Method to lobby the public as well as influence state government. By using specially picked political appointees that appear as everyday concerned citizens, they push to advance support on a host of progressive ideals, including gun control.

Cleverly this is how politicians can push an agenda — then hide behind a citizen panel, when they ask for your vote at reelection time.

Too bad for them, we’re on to them!

In Wyoming, it’s always the usual suspects like Dicky Shanor pushing the progressive envelope. These Liberal-Progressives work within the confines of the Republican party because they just can’t get elected as Democrats.

Republicans like Shanor, and a Party that refuses to hold their own accountable — is the very reason we must be so critical of the recent statewide Republican fund-raising campaign dubbed – “Grow The Party.”

It should be noted that Shanor was the prior Chairman of the Laramie Republican Party.

And it’s just as it seems, Republican ‘Elitists’ like Shanor quickly find the revolving door into Wyoming government.

It’s flat out sickening that councilman Shanor used the usual tactics to make it difficult for the public to participate in the proceedings by having the hearing at 12 noon, and to schedule the hearing in the smallest room possible with people literally lining the hallway.

All while 20 feet away, the much larger Cheyenne city council chambers were empty. You just can’t make this stuff up!

Besides being a lawyer and city council member, phony Republican Shanor also works as the Chief of Staff of another Phony Republican, Jillian Balow, Wyoming’s Superintendent of Education who testified in both the House and Senate committees against the Repeal of Gun Free Zones in Wyoming.

Like the old saying goes, “Birds of a Feather flock Together.”
Jillian Balow and Dicky Shanor

So yesterday, it came at no surprise, that Dicky Shanor was leading the charge to implement an unscrupulous Marxist government scheme.

The good news is…

On it’s initial introduction we made sure Shanor’s move met hard scrutiny from gun owners.

But here’s the warning…

While the measure was temporarily tabled in yesterdays sub-committee—->Despite the opposition, Shanor stated, in open committee, that he will rework the language and bring it before the council again.

This is why I will be keeping a close eye on every move of Cheyenne’s city council as they act to repackage and reintroduce Shanor’s United Nations scheme.

Remember, as I am at the ready to aggressively push back at Wyoming’s progressive anti-gun politicians—->where ever they may be. This will continue to be possible only because of your financial support.

If you are a regularly reader, but have not become an active supporter – please consider chipping in $10 or $20, so WyGO can remain the strong voice for gun rights in Wyoming.

Depending on the government

June 15, 2015

These pages have, for years decried how people and organizations have depended on government in order to keep body and soul together. It is indeed a two edged sword. One that, like a pendulum always swings in both directions. Businesses, like people, are subject to the addiction process.It’s time for some tough love. I can only hope that a champion of capitalism comes to the rescue.

Colt Defense LLC, the 179-year-old gunmaker that supplies M4 carbines and M16 rifles for the U.S. and foreign militaries, filed for bankruptcy amid delayed government sales and declining demand.

The West Hartford, Connecticut-based firearms maker listed assets of as much as $500 million and debt of as much as $500 million in a Chapter 11 filing late Sunday in bankruptcy court in Wilmington, Delaware. Wilmington Trust Company is listed as the biggest unsecured creditor with a $261 million claim.

Wyoming Senators: Silence is anything but golden!

June 4, 2015
We lost by a mere 16 votes, but thanks to your grassroots activism, U.S. Senate Leadership took it in the shorts.

First, the scary stuff…

Obama’s declaration of victory on the passage in the Senate by a 67-32 vote:

Immediately signing the wrongly named USA Freedom Act, Obama stated, “my administration will work expeditiously to ensure our national security professionals again have the full set of vital tools they need…

Now the back story…

While Senator(s) Barrasso and Enzi voted NO on the so-called USA Freedom Act, other Republican Senators who also voted NO, admitted that they did so because the measure “didn’t go far enough” to spy on Americans.

Several hours of floor debate revealed the real imbalance in Congress — only one Republican Senator shined by standing up and pushing real freedom.

Samuel Adams said it best ~ “It does not take a majority to prevail… but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”

If you want to see this played out in modern politics — watch Senator Rand Paul setting the brushfire on the Senate floor, by clicking here.

The good news is that every single poisonous amendment was voted down, despite the foolish utterances by phony Republican Mitch McConnell.

McConnell proposed four amendments to address what he called the bill’s “serious flaws.”

You just can’t make this stuff up!

McConnell even suggested that Obama’s failed foreign policy was somehow equated to the Senate’s refusal to accept his dangerous amendments that would have further violated the privacy of Americans.

As I watched Republican Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell during this historic defeat, I must admit…it was truly a rewarding experience to see him to burn in the flames.

And you can be proud of being a part of the grassroots brushfire.

But, at the risk of being redundant, Barrasso and Enzi voted correctly while remaining silent.

While thankful that they both voted right, we are at a loss that the Wyoming delegation didn’t stand with Rand Paul in the vocal debate.

Like most politicians, our Senators love to receive accolades for their display of rhetoric in front of Fox News cameras — but where it matters most on the Senate floor, they remain closemouthed.

If the Wyoming Senators want us to believe they were standing on the proper side of the fence — they should have been setting their own brushfires of freedom — instead of leaving the fight to Republican Senator Rand Paul, who single-handedly pushed back at the entire establishment.

The Thrill is gone: BB King

May 16, 2015

Yes, I know that this is a day or so late. Being a truck driver always seems to interfere with the important things in life. Like loading premium ammunition, tying flies, getting sharp objects in proper condition, and blogging!

So, while listening to Coast to Coast as I drove up the interstate in the middle of a raging storm I heard the sad news. B. B. King has passed on… Indeed, an era has come to an end. At least if you like The Blues as I do.

It started for me in 1968. Leonard Formosa, myself and someone else all decided to go to a Blues show. A rather marked departure from our normal Rock & Roll habits. I think it was in Solana Beach. The show had performers that reads like a history of the Blues.

There was a black woman that opened. Sorry but I don’t remember her name. What a voice! Then there was none other than Pork Chop. Followed by the master of the harp (harmonica) James Cotton. Then it was B.B. King…

Rest in peace BB, we will remember you and Lucille forever…

Wyoming Politics: Actions have Consequences HB 114, are you listening Mike Madden?

March 3, 2015
Mr. Madden;
A vote to concur with the Senate modifications to HB 114 is a vote not only to bypass State preemption but also a return to the good old boys system that prevailed before Constitutional Carry was properly implemented in Wyoming.
Actually, I don’t have any real problems with that. Just so long as an additional amendment goes hand in hand with it. That being; That any person in any capacity of authority that implements any restrictions on the use or possession of weapons in any public place shall be charged as an accessory to any crimes, including homicide, that could or would have been prevented had those rules or regulations not been in place.
Sir, this retired Paramedic is sick of people that are mentally ill with Hoplophobia implementing Free Fire Zones that get innocent people killed, maimed, and wounded. Actions should have consequences and that includes those that fail miserably in positions of leadership.

Here we go again; Believing in The Bill of Rights gets you targeted.

February 21, 2015

Many say that Obama will never be able to defeat the enemy if he refuses to properly identity them. The problem is, Obama HAS identified his enemy, and that enemy is ANYONE who questions his authority.

A new intelligence assessment, circulated by the Department of Homeland Security this month, focuses on the domestic terror threat from right-wing “sovereign citizen extremists”. So who are these “sovereign citizens”? The government says these are extremists who believe that they can ignore laws and that their individual rights are under attack in routine daily instances.

According to CNN,

Some federal and local law enforcement groups view the domestic terror threat from sovereign citizen groups as equal to — and in some cases greater than — the threat from foreign Islamic terror groups, such as ISIS, that garner more public attention.​

It is disturbing to say the least that this administration ignores the threat of Islamic extremism while magnifying the instances when a crazy person snapped on a cop. Those people were not right-wing extremists, they are just nuts. Right-wing “extremists” are people who appreciate their freedom and the men who died to protect it. They are Americans who question why their rights are being infringed and realize that big government has never helped anyone.

The Department of Homeland Security characterizes Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority,” and “reverent of individual liberty” as “extreme right-wing” terrorists. “Reverent” is defined as, feeling or showing deep and solemn respect. So our government is saying that anyone who has respect for their liberty is a extreme-right wing threat. That is OUTRAGEOUS.

The report adds that “law enforcement officers will remain the primary target of (sovereign citizen) violence over the next year due to their role in physically enforcing laws and regulations.” I wonder, do the “Black Lives Matter” fools qualify as right-wing extremists? I mean, they were the ones calling for police to be murdered.

For as big of a threat the Obama administration claims liberty lovers are, he failed to mention them during his anti-extremism conference. In case you missed it, the conference was three days of putting America down and defending Islam.

Mark Potok, senior fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center said “sovereign citizen groups have attracted support because of poor economic conditions. Some groups travel the country pitching their ideology as a way to help homeowners escape foreclosure or get out of debt, by simply ignoring the courts and bankruptcy law.”

How backwards has this country become when the government is labeling people who ignore bankruptcy laws as terrorists, while praising the ideology (radical Islam) that is killing millions of innocent people?

So, once again, if you disagree with the Tory’s you are targeted as some sort of extremist…
