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.

HB-114 Repeal Gun Free Zones now has two Senate bill sponsors! Your immediate action is needed.

February 11, 2015

I have great news from the Capitol, the Repeal Gun Free Zones Act now has two sponsors in the Wyoming Senate.

And after visiting with both of them, I can tell you they are committed to defending your right to bear arms.

Senator Curt Meier (R-Goshen/Niobrara/Weston) is the the primary Senate sponsor, and Senator Cale Case (R-Freemont) is the lead co-sponsor for this much needed legislation to restore gun rights in Wyoming.

HB-114 is on Sen. Meier’s desk as we speak, making it very easy for your State Senator to just walk over and cosponsor.

This bill (HB-114) passed the Wyoming House 42-17 without any amendments.

And now the anti-gun lobby is cranking up the pressure on the Senate — demanding that they not advance this bill.

As we witnessed in the House, the lobbyists have a stack of poisonous amendments ready to file in the Senate.

If the gun control crowd is successful, HB-114 will die a death by a thousand cuts in the Senate.

*** Please consider a generous contribution of $100, $50, $25, or even just $5 right now.

With your help we can mobilize gun owners via direct mail, Facebook, Internet, and using targeted email campaigns.

Remember, these Senators work for YOU.

You elected them to go to Cheyenne to represent and vote for YOU, and to be YOUR voice in the Capitol.

Make sure they don’t forget who they work for.

So please, make your calls today!

Call the Senate switchboard at 307-777-7711.
You can find your Senator by clicking here.

Make sure your Senator co-sponsors HB-114 Repeal Gun Free Zones, that is currently sitting on Senator Curt Meier’s desk.

Make sure that your Senator knows how important it is that Repeal Gun Free Zones passes the Senate without any amendments.

Let them know that HB-114 did pass the House with a 42-17 vote and that you expect the same from the Senate.

Please get your friends involved today – have them make phone calls and have them send emails.

For Liberty,

Executive Director
Wyoming Gun Owners

P.S. HB-114 Repeal Gun Free Zones now has two bill sponsors in the Senate, and your immediate action is needed.

Call the Senate switchboard at 307-777-7711 and ask your Senator to stand up for you by co-sponsoring HB-114.

Tell your Senator that this legislation passed the House without any amendments and that you expect the same action from the Senate.

 

HB-114; The first step in a long road to security and freedom

January 30, 2015
Today HB-114 repeal gun free zones passed out of Judiciary Committee 8-1 without any amendments.

Take a few seconds to cheer. Okay…that’s enough.

Today’s vote was just a small first step on a long road filled with potholes.

I watched as the Education Lobby lined up against the people’s right to self defense. They literally will do and say anything to keep their precious ‘gun free’ killing zones.

Testimony based on anti-gun feelings were kicked off by liberal-progressive Jillian Balow, the Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Balow simply used her office and salary to rob the people of their right to self defense.

The first thing that came to mind were images of Hillary Clinton’s, “it takes a village to raise a child.”

Please be watching for my future emails so you can be involved.

HB-114 could be heard for first floor reading as early as tomorrow.

If you haven’t done so already, please contact your House Representative and ask them to support HB-114-without amendments.

Find your House Representative here.

For Liberty,

They are circling the wagons so they can stifle any advancement of gun rights in Wyoming.

December 20, 2014

But that’s what they’ve been doing all along.

As an example, the University of Wyoming’s governing body and the Wyoming Teachers Union are at the ready with an entire team of lobbyists who will stand in the way of the Second Amendment.

This is exactly how they’ve taken over states like Colorado…utilizing an army of paid lobbyists that all move in unison pushing similar ‘progressive’ values.

By being on the ground at the State Capitol we have documented the anti-gun operatives. This gives us a clear advantage.

Like in other States, the progressives have an active ‘paid’ lobbyist base here in Wyoming.

There’s a teachers association, a higher education association, a school board association. And standing with them, a municipality association, and let’s not forget the police association — all on the record — lobbying to defend their gun free victim killing zones.

Here’s the good news…

We have the ability to throw a monkey wrench in the works — by exposing every single politician who works with these well paid anti-gun lobbyists.

You see, no matter how hard they try to hide, we now know who they are, and just who they are working for.

Another example hidden by the media is — Wyoming Senator John Hastert (Democrat-Green River) who is a corporate officer in a least two anti-gun lobby groups.

And the so-called ‘leadership’ in the Republican majority says…”Our institution [legislature] is under attack from Wyoming Gun Owners”.

It’s just not politically advantageous for the Republican politicians to call out a standing Senator who is a high ranking officer in a political nonprofit — when both of them work on the same gun-control team.

It’s these same politicians who work in unison that have now created this target rich environment detrimental to their own careers.

But it will be detrimental only if we expose them!

After several years of our ‘boots on the ground’ activism, it’s now time to use their anti-gun voting records, and their anti-gun alliances (with the well funded lobbyists) against them. And do this not only when they ask for your vote during elections, but during legislative season.

There’s more lobbyist corruption…

Lobbyists from afar are part of the problem, including the NRA, who flies-in their Washington D.C. based lobbyist to Wyoming.

Dakota Moore (the NRA lobbyist) along with another (well paid) lobbyist who based in Wyoming, together pushed for background expansion in Wyoming.

Fortunately it was WyGO’s aggressive postal campaign funded by members like you that creating a tidal-wave of direct mail reaching thousands of households.

In the end there was a loud and clear message telling lawmakers “we were watching” that put the brakes on this dangerous legislation.

Of course the background check expansion bill sponsor, Senator Fred Emerich (Republican-Cheyenne) — was endorsed for re-election by no other than, Dakota Moore, the NRA lobbyist…

What we’ve learned is that the NRA lobbyist is a typical lawyer type who plays very well with the anti-gun establishment.

Mr. Moore has told our bill sponsor that they [NRA] work differently than WyGO does.

That is no lie! It’s very apparent that the NRA works differently.

The NRA endorsement of Sen. Fred Emerich — ignored important facts about the gun-grabbing Senator’s voting record.

Here it comes…

Sen. Fred Emerich voted against Constitutional-Carry in 2011, not only in his Senate committee, but additionally in all three floor votes as well.

As it seems, this is the best the NRA can do, to take millions of dollars raised — then send us a ‘lawyered-up’ lobbyist who advances gun control.

But it could be worse.

How bad would be if you didn’t know about all this damaging collaboration between multiple lobbyists?

Or, what if you didn’t know the truth about the NRA lawyer-lobbyist (that resides in the D.C. Beltway) who pals around with the gun-grabbing politicians in Wyoming?

WyGO supporters have always had an edge…

This was true in 2011 when WyGO launched a real grassroots campaign to repeal the permit requirement for concealed carry.

And it’s true now, even though the GOP leadership has fought us every step of the way since 2011, WyGO’s edge is apparent.

With WyGO on the ground, the anti-gun politicians, their lobbyist collaborators, and their pals in the anti-gun media cannot pull the wool over the eyes of gun owners so easily.

But now with so many alliances working against us — things are going to get even tougher.

And as we quickly approach Wyoming’s 2015 legislative session, I need everyone on board.

Wyoming has two choices:

1. Follow States like Colorado into the abyss.

-OR-

2. We can take our position on high ground, wait for them to march in, then let them have it!

Everyone knows that in battle one must have plenty of ammo, right?

In this case, we need to be ready at a moment’s notice to pay for and deploy hard hitting postal-mailing campaigns, radio ads and internet ads.

I know how tough times are, and yes I know what time of year it is.

But I also know what kind of fight is coming in just 30 days when the legislature starts up — and this is the reason I’m asking for your financial support today.

Whatever the amount is — I’ll leave that entirely up to you.

It will be only with your help that I can deliver the necessary pain to the anti-gun politicians.

Your support will help WyGO get lined up for the 2015 session — so please contribute to WyGO as generously as you can.

I Thank You in advance.

Big Government antics in The Cowboy State: Sherriff Bill belongs in a movie about the old south!

November 21, 2014

Will you let House leadership get away with this?

Wyoming’s new House Speaker Kermit Brown (Albany) and the majority floor leader Rosie Berger (Sheridan) — are playing dirty right out of the gate.

And these are the same folks in so-called leadership that pushed to stop me from video taping floor activity (on behalf of WyGO) from the “public” gallery in the Capitol — because they don’t want you to know what’s really going on under their so-called “leadership.”

The orders were to stop Bouchard (me) from video recording because it’s “their house” and they make the rules!

The reality is they just don’t want to be held accountable by anyone, and certainly not by Wyoming Gun Owners!

But now as a corrupt politician slides into the Wyoming Legislature, we see more of the same from the leaders.

Over the years several complaints have been filed against a politician while in office. And it is unfortunate for Campbell county residents that all prior complaints fell on deaf ears.

Sometimes justice comes later than sooner…

The current Governor, previous Governors, and let’s not forget the several prosecutors who were all given an opportunity to review complaints. Now they are all in a real conundrum for covering up for Sheriff Bill Pownall.

Of course WyGO was “on the ground” during Bill Pownall’s last Sheriff campaign in 2010.

***During his campaign several recordings of Sheriff Pownall were revealed, including evidence that he obtained and possessed at least one class III weapon without forgoing the required federal paperwork.
(You and I would go to jail and serve a hefty term for that offense)

***Insiders close to Pownall stated that as Sheriff he would refuse any applications by lawful citizens for Class III weapons.
(We take that as, only Pownall should own them)

***Insiders also leaked that Pownall was working on a gun owners database.
(A traffic stop gun registry for law abiding citizens)

There was even more…In fact, an entire slew of other reasons led us to believe that Pownall was a bad apple. Like all criminals, by the time they are finally discovered, they have already broken the law repeatedly.

And this is what election cycles are about, looking at backgrounds, reviewing actions, and verifying the credibility of any accusations against a candidate. Check, WyGO did that.

This is why WyGO worked diligently to expose Pownall’s real record and his refusal to answer our gun rights survey. And back in the sheriff’s race WyGO also pointed out that Pownall’s opponent, Dave Lauck, answered WyGO’s survey 100% correct .

Accordingly, WyGO ran a hard hitting radio campaign in Campbell county, and was the only organization taking a stand against Pownall.

During his run for House district 52, Pownall refused to answer WyGO’s survey once again.

Pownall is a fine example of this: If any candidate doesn’t trust you with your own guns, then you shouldn’t trust them with anything at all!

So why am I dragging out  Pownall’s past corrupt accusations?

Here it comes, wait for it…

Recently unnamed complainants working inside of Pownall’s Sheriff Administration finally had enough of it, and sealed and delivered the evidence. Only this time there were too many people in the loop to turn a blind eye.

     Hollywood style corruption in Wyoming – Sheriff Bill Pownall on right

As it was during Pownall’s previous elections, the corruption could no longer be covered up. He and his political operatives could no longer cry foul against the evidence.

And what is the latest charge against the Campbell county top law enforcement officer?

Pownall directed his deputies to cover-up an arrest of his own son for — drunk driving.

And now with the WY Attorney General advancing to remove Pownall as Sheriff. We see exactly the opposite from the House leadership who call the legislature “their house.”

Instead of putting the brakes on Pownall, as they are empowered to do, they are just going about business as usual. Just last week leadership appointed Pownall to the powerful Wyoming House Judiciary Committee.

This is the committee, that is most likely to hear gun bills. And Pownall, a politician whose actions as Sheriff puts himself above the law — is now empowered by House leadership to dictate over the lives of Wyoming citizens statewide.

Real leadership would have refused to place Pownell on Judiciary and instead be calling for a special election for House District 52!

But all of this isn’t only on the shoulders of the so-called Leadership!

A super majority in the Wyoming house elected Kermit Brown and Rosie Berger to be their leaders — all by a secret ballot behind closed doors.

But we have a very reliable indication of who the house reps are in this “secret” majority. They are likely the same candidates who ran for the Wyoming house that also refused to answer Wyoming Gun Owners gun rights survey.

These are the politicians who refuse to put their real views on the Second Amendment in writing. And are the likely bunch that is responsible for electing current House leadership.

Kermit Brown and Rosie Berger have repeatedly refused to answer WyGO’s surveys as well.

All of this is the same kind of action you see in Washington DC, the good old boys are in control!

Like you, we’re mad as hell and were not to take it anymore!

Please share this e-mail with as many people as you can, because in the coming days WyGO is going to be calling for action!

Please consider becoming a financial supporter of Wyoming Gun Owners, the only organization working at this level to expose the corrupt anti-gun politicians.

Be watching for my coming eAlerts, and if you haven’t done so already, join with over 16,000 WyGO supporters and followers on our Facebook page.

Dead Ducks and slimeballs

November 17, 2014

Harry Reid to Take One Last Shot at the Second Amendment in the Lame Duck Session

There’s a reason why we at GOA call the post-election period of Congress the “slime duck” session.

Harry Reid and his minions now will try to shove down our throats all of the anti-gun legislation and nominees they were afraid to reveal before the elections — when voters still had the option to punish them by throwing them out of office.

As it turns out, gun owners in most states knew exactly what Reid had in mind when they went to the polis on November 4.  And, as a result, anti-gun hypocrites like Arkansas’ Mark Pryor, Louisiana’s Mary Landrieu, North Carolina’s Kay Hagan, Alaska’s Mark Begich, and Colorado’s Mark Udall are pretty much “dead ducks.”

The question is: Will these anti-gun liars be given the power to make virtually all budgetary gun decisions on the giant government-funding bill (the “continuing resolution” or “CR”)?

And will they get to shove through an anti-gun successor to Attorney General Eric Holder in December under Harry Reid’s “nuclear option” fraud rules … where the discredited and repudiated Democratic anti-gun “slime ducks” will make the decision … and where Harry Reid won’t need a single Republican vote?

On the “CR” issue, government funding is set to expire on December 11, so a new bill will be necessary.

But Congress has a choice of whether to fund it for almost an entire year — or to kick it over to February or March, when the newly elected pro-gun senators will have an opportunity to have some say in a giant bill which makes virtually all policy decisions for the government.

For instance, the “CR” will decide whether or not the Schumer amendment prohibiting relief from disabilities will be renewed. It will decide whether to defund the shotgun import ban, the ammunition import ban, the illegal multiple sale reporting requirements, the implementation of the Arms Trade Treaty, and Operation Choke Point.

We would much rather have incoming Iowa Senator Joni Ernst make these decisions than her anti-gun predecessor, Tom Harkin.

One more thing: About April 15, millions of Americans will realize (perhaps for the first time) that they have been assessed a fine of hundreds of dollars for not complying with the anti-gun ObamaCare law.

Gun owners despise this law because of concerns that a national health database could be used by federal bureaucrats to disarm law-abiding Americans, in the same way that more than 175,000 military veterans have already been disarmed.

But this April 15 will hit millions of additional Americans in the pocketbook.  At that time, Republicans will want a legislative vehicle (such as a “CR”) to block IRS enforcement of this wildly unpopular mandate. But, if Congress gives Obama a carte blanche through September 30, this will not be an option.

Before the new Congress is sworn in — this coming January — the Republicans are still in the minority in Harry Reid’s Senate.  Thus, the most effective course of action would be to convince House members — and especially Speaker John Boehner — to refuse making any long-term deals on the CR.

This will give the new, pro-gun members of Congress who arrive in January a stronger hand in using the CR to protect gun rights.

ACTION: Recognizing that a lot of gun policy is “hidden” in the Continuing Resolution, urge your Representatives to OPPOSE any long-term CR.  Insist that any CR they agree to in December must expire (or be reconsidered) before April of next year.

IN OTHER NEWS:  GOA Countering Bloomberg’s Agenda

It’s tough being an anti-gun radical like Michael “Big Gulp” Bloomberg these days.

The former New York City Mayor has pumped millions of dollars into his fanatical effort to get gun control passed.

But that money was no match for the massive grassroots resistance that awaited him.  Even liberal media outlets like National Public Radio were forced to report on the unparalleled strength of GOA’s grassroots:

“Gun Owners of America showed with one email alert that it could help flood the phone lines on Capitol Hill days before the Senate vote.” — NPR, December 26, 2013

The result?  Bloomberg lost an epic battle in the U.S. Senate last year — even while media pundits predicted his minions would win.

Bloomberg trying to bypass state legislatures

Within the past year or so, the Bloomberg forces lost ground in several states and failed to pass expanded background checks in many places where GOA was active (like Nevada and New Hampshire).

Having suffered so many defeats, Bloomberg is trying to make an end run around elected legislatures by forcing referendum votes around the country.

And to that effort, “Daddy Warbucks” has pledged $50 million in his crazed effort to remodel this country’s gun laws to resemble England’s.

Turning most gun owners into criminals

Bloomberg’s first attempt at buying a state is in Washington. If he is successful in the Evergreen State, simply owning a gun — without making a tiny mistake which would land you in jail — will be like dancing barefoot in a pit of scorpions.

Bloomberg’s proposal — an initiative which will be voted on in the November election — is 18 pages long.  So the only thing most Washingtonians will know about it is the lies Bloomberg is paying to spew over the airwaves.

Bloomberg’s minions have more than a dozen similar referendums planned around the country for 2015 and 2016.

All of this means that educating and mobilizing the grassroots — and the next generation — becomes even more important.

To that end:

* Gun Owners of America has produced a Fact Sheet to expose the real dangers behind I-594 in Washington.

* And GOA has also issued alerts here and here into Washington to mobilize gun owners there.

House District 10 Wyoming vote freedom and liberty

June 10, 2014

Should Wyoming’s government continue to grow larger?

Do you feel the state bureaucracy deserves more money and control?

If you’re like most Wyomingites, your answer is a resounding NO!

Yet every year, we keep hearing new excuses why our state government needs more and more money.

But there’s one simple truth…

Things will never change in Cheyenne until we change the kind of people we send there.

And that’s why I’m running for the Wyoming House.

I watched as my incumbent opponent (in House District 10) voted YES to pass a fuel/gasoline tax hike in Wyoming.

His actions go beyond his yes vote on the floor — he was also a member of the committee that voted to ram this tax hike through.

My opponent literally ignored hundreds of emails from hard working Wyomingites, many who stated that were already finding it difficult to make ends meet!

I truly believe stunts like these are the reason why so many folks complain about their legislators being out of touch.

So if you believe it’s time the state government started to look for ways to cut taxes and spending, instead of constantly hiking them, then I hope to earn your support in my run for the state house.

The truth on the gasoline tax hike is that — Paid Special Interest Lobbyists — greased the skids to no end.

And these same lobbyists, some of them earning six figure incomes, are directly tied to PACs (Political action Committees) — who have one purpose in mind — to ‘keep their tax and spend’ politicians in office.

These PACs regularly fund incumbents, (like my opponent) sometimes as high as 3 to 1 leaving challengers in the dust.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

I can beat back the establishment, and their deep pocket cronies, by running at them head-on with (for starters) targeted ads and aggressive mail campaigns. But these things just won’t happen on their own.

That’s why I’m asking for your immediate support…

So if you are just as tired as I am of ‘tax and spend’ politicians, please consider contributing as generously as you can to my campaign.

Whether you can give the campaign maximun of $1000, or right now you can only afford $20 or $10, please know that any amount you give will be used to run an effective campaign.

Warmest Regards,

  

Anthony Bouchard
Conservative Republican
for Wyoming House

P.S.  Spend, spend, spend and new state tax hikes will be coming down the pike soon.

That’s just one of the reasons I’m running for State House.

But this isn’t going to be an easy fight, since my incumbent opponent’s special interest cronies — will dig deep keeping the campaign checks flowing — so they can keep him in office.

Of course I intend to bring a real fight to their camp. But I’ll need your help.

Please go here and chip in $1000, $500, $250, $100, $25 or just $10 right now, and help me in my run for State House

a “pro-gun” patsy

May 28, 2014

You may have seen NAGR’s e-mail a few weeks ago where we publicly exposed Alan Gottlieb’s compromises of your Second Amendment rights.

And we called it what it is: endorsing gun control, and leading the fight for national gun registration.

This isn’t anything new.  Alan Gottlieb did the exact same thing last year during the post-Newtown, Connecticut tragedy battle in the U.S. Senate.

It amazed everyone at the time, but Alan Gottlieb proclaimed he helped write the Toomey-Manchin Universal Background Check bill.

You remember that legislation — it forced every firearm sale in America to go through the Brady system, which is, plain and simple, national gun registration.

What else do you call going through a government-mandated system to beg permission to practice what is supposed to be a right — with the records being kept by varying levels of government agents for later retrieval?

That’s gun registration.  And since it’s a federal bill in Congress, forcing all states to do it, it’s national.

National + Gun Registration = National Gun Registration.

But don’t take my word for it; take Alan Gottlieb’s word.

Here’s what was written in the Second Amendment Foundation’s (SAF) “The Gottlieb Tartaro Report” Issue 137, May, 2006:

Rabidly anti-gun Sen. FRANK LAUTENBERG (D-NJ) has introduced S. 843, “to establish background check procedures for gun shows,” which in fact is a massive gun registration program of incredibly dangerous scope. (highlight added)

Here, we agree with Alan Gottlieb; forcing all sales at gun shows to go through a Brady check is “a massive gun registration program.”  And yes, it’s incredibly dangerous.

Or look at the SAF report from Dec. 6, 2001, when Gottlieb wrote:

The fact is, Charles Schumer always envisioned the Brady Law as a gun registration scheme, and he has seized on this opportunity to lament that the NICS records are strictly off-limits for that kind of political skullduggery. 

Well said.  It’s a registration scheme — and now Gottlieb himself is leading the charge to pass it.

The good news is that we killed Toomey-Manchin . . . for now.

But it was darn close.  Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, and Barack Obama nearly got their way and forced Brady Registration on every American.

To pass this gun control, they needed a “pro-gun” patsy to give them cover.

Enter Alan Gottlieb.

Had it passed — when Alan Gottlieb claimed he helped write it — we could have called that the “Gottlieb law,” forcing every private sale in America to go through Brady prior to transfer . . . and thus register their guns.

And rather than celebrate the victory over Toomey-Manchin, and build a bulwark against any further attempts, Alan Gottlieb’s response is that it’s inevitable, and we should support it.

Had he asked me, I would tell Alan Gottlieb to publicly apologize for playing such a prominent role in passing gun control, and be elated that it didn’t pass.

Now that he’s being called out for his compromises, Alan Gottlieb is using silly and childish antics, and even threatening to sue.

That might have worked with others in the past, but the truth is always a defense.

And all you have to do is watch either video to see that Alan Gottlieb isn’t fighting against universal background checks.

Given his fervor to pass national gun registration, we have to ask some questions:

What other gun controls does Alan Gottlieb think Americans should pass, since they are inevitable?

No, we won’t agree to his compromises.

And we won’t remain silent about them, either.

For Freedom,

P.S. The President of the Second Amendment Foundation Alan Gottlieb is banging the drums for a new expanded federal gun registration bill.  Alan Gottlieb says gun owners should “compromise” with the gun-grabbers.

We say “NO!” and stand ready to fight back against gun control at every opportunity.

SAY NO too Bloombergs Wyoming schemes!

April 28, 2014

It’s been a unusually busy time of year.

In fact, since I’ve been in this fight, this is the very first time it’s been so hectic on the flip side of the short 20 day legislative session.

And regrettably, we have our work cut out for us.

The truth is some folks believe that here in Wyoming, we remain sheltered from big city gun grabbers like billionaire Michael Bloomberg.

And it may be for this very reason that the gun control crowd has launched an all out assault in Wyoming.

Of course this is why we’ve been working so hard to reach hundreds of gun owners.

Please know that fruits of generous donors like you, is that, literally hundreds of Wyoming residents are receiving a “call to action” delivered to their postal mail box.

This action alert by WyGO is being mailed to inform them about — state “Republican” leadership pushing enhanced background checks — into an interim committee meeting in Rawlins WY in just a couple of weeks.

Of course we know the lay of the land, because this underhanded “play” has surfaced in several state legislatures.

And wouldn’t you know, much of it has been traced back to Bloomberg, along with his well funded gun control cronies all across the country.

Their plan is to, slip-in “King Henry the 8th” style laws, which will give carte blanche authority to Wyoming’s top law enforcement agency, who will then be able to share gun owner data to federal agencies.

Dangerously, once something like this goes into place, then the D.C. gun grabbers only need to pass a simple bill to tie it all together.

I hate to think what someone like Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder, would do with a “secret list” of gun owners.

It gets worse. Even if a seemingly innocuous bill makes it out of committee in Rawlins, the anti-gun politicians in Cheyenne will sneak-in freedom robbing amendments into the bill at the next general session in 2015.

So here’s how the dirty scheme could play out:

*** Get the ‘ball’ rolling now, by pushing a bill draft that will remain hidden from public eyes;

*** Then, squeak by in the upcoming elections;

*** And for the kill, push the gun control envelope during the upcoming general session.

This is why this must be stopped all together!

And just who quietly placed this Universal Background Check scheme into the upcoming interim committee?

No other than the shadow government agency in Cheyenne called the “Management Council” — led by Republican leadership, Speaker of the House Tom Lubnau, and President of the Senate Tony Ross.

This is really an all-out FIGHT!

So please forward this email to every freedom loving friend and family member in Wyoming immediately!

Also urge them to sign up for our email alerts, so they too can get all the details about this attack on gun owners, as soon as it’s available.

Over the next coming days I will continue to coordinate WyGO’s aggressive postal-mailings — mostly to folks that may have never heard of our organization.

Bloomberg’s promise to spend $50 Million on state legislatures is a somber reality, and though WyGO is currently mailing several hundred homes — the goal to reach 20,000 Second Amendment supporters in Wyoming is a costly endeavor.

Please consider becoming a outreach-sponsor by contributing $50, $25, or even just $5 to help cover the costs of the envelopes, paper and postage.

Without your generous support, I truly shudder to think about what you and I could be facing. We simply have to turn up the heat on the Wyoming Lawmakers like never before.

In addition to helping out with whatever you can afford, please pass this alert on to your Pro-Freedom friends and point them to our — “Stop Bloomberg in Wyoming Petition” — by clicking on the banner below.

Thank you in advance for your dedication to defending the Second Amendment in Wyoming.
