Cynthia Lummis closet anti Bill of Rights?

March 2, 2012

From Wyoming Gun Owners, used with permission.

While you and I were busy fighting an expansion of gun-free zones here in Wyoming, the folks in Washington D.C. were moving to enact new gun control on a unsuspecting public.

Sadly Representative Cynthia Lummis voted YES on a measure that criminalizes someone that is lawfully carrying a firearm for self defense.

Under this federal legislation, H.R. 347 – Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act, anyone addressing the government with grievances (like the first amendment guarantees) while lawfully in possession of a firearm, could face ten years in prison.

The gun grabbers recipe is simple:

Create new places where the second amendment no longer applies – Start by taking something as harmless as tea party gathering, combine new regulations that say it’s disruptive of government business, finally throw law abiding gun owners into the mix, and there you have it, gun owners under the bus again!

Cheyenne--Tea-Party protesters in front of the Capital, many were lawfully armed.
Cheyenne Tea-Party gathered in front of the Wyoming Capital — many were lawfully armed. (Federal building in background)

The text in H.R. 347 is so telling of the real agenda — expansive gun control– just being in the “proximity” of federal property — could be punishable.

Who defines “proximity”?

Does it mean 10 or 10,000 feet?

Please call Rep. Cynthia Lummis and tell her a vote for “gun control” no matter how insignificant it may seem is a vote against Wyoming.

Call and email Rep. Lummis here

P.S. Wyoming Gun Owners is the ONLY pro-gun organization working at this level — please consider contributing to the effort by chipping in just $20 so we can stay in the fight.

Free fire zones for the unlawful are not the answer to some perceived “problem.” Remember, it’s the forces of anti freedom and liberty that take the position of never letting a crisis, real or imaginary, go to waste.

The incremental chipping away of our rights and freedoms is not to be taken lightly and we should, each and every one of us let our leaders at all levels know that.

 

From Wyoming Gun Owners

February 1, 2012

Vying for your vote in the field of “Republicans” are candidates with a documented history of supporting gun control schemes backed by the Brady campaign against guns.

And like usual the tough gun rights questions aren’t being asked of the Presidential candidates by the liberal anti-gun media.

Even the so called “conservative” talking heads seem to sidestep the real meaning of the right to keep and bear arms.

This is very concerning since here in Wyoming “constitutional carry” was passed into law eliminating the need to–ask big brother permission–before exercising your God-given right to self defense.

That’s why now more than ever we must demand to know if these candidates will defend or strike down the rights that you and I have worked so hard to restore.

Wyoming Gun Owners is the only state organization working at this level, asking the hard questions in a–Wyoming Gun Owners 2012 Presidential Gun Rights Survey–that was sent to the candidates by certified mail.

Ron Paul is the only Republican candidate who has returned the survey. His response was 100% in favor of your gun rights.

The remaining candidates, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, and Rick Santorum, have all decided to stonewall gun owners by refusing to return their surveys!

Also receiving Mitt Romney’s survey was his Wyoming Campaign Chairwoman–Cynthia Lummis.

During a state wide radio tour Representative Lummis announced her personal endorsement and declared Romney as the best candidate for Wyoming.

Unfortunately Romney’s past is riddled with heavy support of gun control, even signing some of the most draconian gun laws in the nation during his occupancy of the Massachusetts governor’s office.

Romney says he has “changed his mind” on a laundry list of issues. But how can anyone truly believe he has had a change of heart concerning the second amendment if Romney now refuses to put his answers on paper and place his signature on it?

In my personal experience, when a candidate refuses to put their views on the second amendment in writing, it’s a early sign that if sent to Washington they would just lay down and pander to those in the gun control crowd.

This is why it’s so important for you to contact Mitt Romney’s campaign chair Cynthia Lummis and demand an answer of why we are hearing–absolutely nothing but silence–on tough gun rights questions.

Please call and email Cynthia Lummis today!
