Besides the obvious privacy concerns — everyone should be deeply troubled about concealed carry permit information that is housed within that database and the ability of the feds to access this data.
Just another Washington D.C. scheme that could make gun registration just a key-stroke away.
And as it seems — instead of defending the liberties of law abiding citizens — there is an ever increasing push placing our freedoms in jeopardy with layer after new layer of new D.C. regulations.
Governor Mead a former federal attorney appears to okay with the general assault on freedom coming out of Washington.
In but another example, when asked about the wrongly named patriot act in 2010, Mead said, “you’re not going to like my answer, but I support it”.
If all of this rubs you the wrong way, it gets worse.
While it has definitely become more difficult for you — it just got easier for illegal aliens to obtain a drivers license in Wyoming!
It’s no secret that Governor Mead appointed a Democrat Attorney General.
And now AG Gregory Phillips has ordered WY-DOT to accept “dreamers” applications for a driver’s license.
According to a one report AG Phillips consulted with Mead directly before issuing the new order.
A “dreamer” is a young immigrant that would otherwise be an illegal alien. But under Obama’s new amnesty program, this same illegal alien is issued a social security card along with a federal work permit.
In California these “dreamers” are on track to receive entitlement-benefits including a free ride to a state university.
The goal of the Obama administration is simple — to foster an environment that increases a liberal big government voter base.
Like you I’m tired of seeing other states leading the fight against Obama’s agenda, while Governor Mead is sitting on his hands.
Arizona’s Governor refused to comply with Obama’s dream scheme, inferring that Obama’s amnesty program isn’t actually law and that Arizona has no duty under state statute to issue drivers licenses to illegal immigrants.
The real question is this, how far you will let a Republican Governor align Wyoming’s policy with Obama’s progressive agenda — before you’ve had enough?
Now let’s talk about guns…
Remember that during the recent legislative session Mead was against pro-gun legislation — even though these bills passed the house with overwhelming majorities.
I personally witnessed Governor Mead’s assistant chief of staff — Tony Young lobbying legislators in the hallways of the Capitol — urging them to vote against pro-gun legislation.
And if that wasn’t bad enough, Mead often had multiple staffers in committee meetings. Using Mr. Young as well as other members of his policy team.
Governor Mead’s assistant chief of staff Tony Young in the doorway with Mead’s former chief of staff Chris Boswell (immediately next to Young). Boswell is now one of Wyoming’s top paid lobbyist now working for Univ of Wyoming. This was a stacked deck committee hearing on HB-105 that was heard on the same day that “education lobby” was holding an event in Cheyenne. Mead’s policy staffer Mike Reed was also on the record at this meeting for being against HB-105.
And it was Mead’s consistent pressure that ensured these bills were killed in the senate.
Mead was publicly against HB-104 — legislation that would have made a Washington D.C. semi-automatic and magazine ban — unenforceable — within the borders of Wyoming.
By the way, the Montana legislature recently passed a bill making a D.C. gun grab unenforceable in their state. But wouldn’t you know…the “Democrat” governor vetoed it.
Clearly Mead may be wearing the wrong jersey since he’s running plays for the other team.
Mead was also against HB-105, legislation that would allow Wyoming citizens with a concealed carry permit issued by the state of Wyoming to carry concealed on public school grounds and college campuses.
Like Obama, Mead must also believe that gun-free zones, or better called — victim disarmament zones — where law abiding citizens like you and me are now helpless to defend themselves is the best plan.
Of course you probably remember — this isn’t how Mead talked while on the campaign trail in 2010.
I have said that as a U.S. Attorney, Mead would remain true to the federal agenda.
Mead’s own actions prove that you can take the federal prosecutor out of Washington D.C. – but you can’t take the Washington D.C. out of a former prosecutor, in this case D.C. attorney turned Governor.
And this is the reason Wyoming Gun Owners exists — to expose politicians in either party that treat Freedom with contempt.
Please share this email so others can know there is a full time organization in Cheyenne that is watching the establishment politicians like a hawk.
