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.

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.

The goal of the Obama administration: Matt Mead on board the train of tyranny; We told you so…

April 12, 2013
If you have renewed your driver’s license lately, you may notice how compliance with the “Real ID Act” has slowed down the process.Under the guise of safety and anti-terrorism, you must now prove you are a citizen in order to obtain a drivers license.I have received countless calls and emails, mostly from folks that have lived in Wyoming for their entire lives — and now they must submit a birth certificate so it can be kept on file in the driver’s license agency data-base.

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.

Matt Mead palling around with Colorado Governor Hickenlooper a staunch gun control advocate who just signed away gun rights in his state!

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.

Who is really at fault in these shootings?

December 20, 2012

This shooting is yet another tragic example of the failed, grotesque insistence on helpless victim zones where any crazed gunman can be assured of a large number of disarmed, undefended, helpless victims, all crammed into one place, where he can kill many children before an armed defender arrives from elsewhere.  It is disturbing and sick that the federal government so hates the right of the American people to bear arms, and so hates their natural right to self defense, that the government insists on making them helpless, disarmed victims for anyone who cares to kill them.   And in this case, all of the teachers and staff were willfully disarmed by the Federal Government, by force of law and threat of prison, to ensure that they would be disarmed and incapable of saving the lives of the children entrusted to their care.

That makes the Federal Government complicit in the deaths of these children, and in fact an accessory to their mass murder, by forcibly disarming (with the very real threat of prison) all the teachers, all the staff, and any parent who may have been on school property.  That stupid law guaranteed the shooters would meet no immediate armed resistance, which is exactly what is needed to stop such an attack.

In such a shooting (as in every criminal attack), seconds count, and the people best positioned to stop the attack are the people on the scene – the intended victims and/or their care-takers.  In this case, that would mean the teachers and staff of the school who were responsible for the well-being of those children, and also the parents, who should have the ability to save the lives of their own children as they take them to and from school.

The police cannot, and do not arrive in time to stop such shooters from killing large numbers of people.  They are a slow reactive force compared to an armed citizen on the scene.   This should be common sense, as it is obvious that in the immediacy of a criminal attack, it is the intended victims (or their immediate care-takers) who are there, in position to put a stop to the attack, if they are capable.  And being capable means being armed, trained, willing, and able to use deadly force, right then, right there.  Anything less leads to what we saw here.

But no doubt the rabid anti-gun government supremacists will use this to further their agenda to disarm the American people, totally ignoring that obvious, plain-as-day truth.   Anti-gun nuts trust the government with guns, but not the people, and insist that the lowly citizen must be disarmed and helpless in the face of murderous assault, and must wait on slow responding armed government employees, who will not be there when the attack starts, and most often can only really clean up the horrendous crime scene afterwards and maybe, just maybe apprehend a shooter who has chosen not to kill himself (as they usually do).

The bottom line is that these teachers and staff at the Sandy Hook Elementary School were incapable of keeping these children safe, and incapable of defending them.  And one of the biggest reasons they were so incapable and unprepared to save the lives of the children entrusted to their care is because the anti-gun nuts and their fellow travelers in government insisted on disarming every adult in the vicinity, by threatening them with prison time – EXCEPT the gunmen, who don’t care about the law and thus were not disarmed.    laws against carrying weapons in schools don’t stop evil men with murderous intent.  Such laws only disarm the law abiding and virtuous, who are now rendered incompetent to defend the precious children in their care.

This is disgusting.  And yet another reason to home-school.  Why would you want to leave your children helpless, in the hands of adults who are  themselves helpless, and incapable of defending them, by government decree?  For all we know, one of the teachers may have been a veteran, with the training and skill to use a firearm if one had been available.  But all the teachers and staff, whatever their ability with firearms, were stripped of the choice and chance to save the lives of these kids.

There are more good guys than bad guys in the world.  But the good guys need to be able to stop the bad guys, and that means  they need to be armed so they can stop the bad guys on the spot, without having to wait for “official” government approved good guys to respond.  Trust the teachers with arms so they can save the lives of their students.

Until the adults are allowed to actually act like adults, and defend themselves and their students, this kind of willful killing will continue to happen, and the federal government will in each case be a guilty party to the conspiracy by ensuring that the targets are disarmed.

Until this changes, you should refuse to give your children over to government schools lorded over by a Federal Government so callous and indifferent to their safety and lives.

Some years ago I wrote about Free Fire Zones and public safety in a letter to the editor at The Rocky Mountain News. Not a damned thing has changed since then. Other than Columbine, and all the rest of these mass killings of innocent people. Gun up people! The answer is more freedom and liberty, not less! More laws will change nothing. Other than make more victims of social predators.

 

Real Solutions to Last Night’s Shootings — As another Gun Free Kill Zone claims lives

July 20, 2012

Gun Owners of America Offering Real Solutions to Last Night’s Shootings

— As another Gun Free Kill Zone claims lives

 

Last night’s shooting in Aurora, Colorado was extremely tragic, as more than a dozen people were killed in another Gun Free Kill Zone.

 

At the opening showing of “The Dark Knight Rises,” James Holmes dressed up in costume and murdered several people while the movie was barely thirty minutes into the story. The gunman used a movie gunfight to cover his actions and further surprise the innocent patrons. Worse, the theater in Aurora reportedly has a “no guns” policy.

 

Despite gun control’s obvious failure, the calls for more restrictions have already begun:

 

* Piers Morgan of CNN came out of the box, calling for more gun control in the wake of the shooting.

 

* New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the strategy of people arming themselves for self-defense just “doesn’t work.”

 

* And the Brady Campaign took the opportunity to tell the nation that, “This is yet another horrific reminder that guns enable mass killings.”

 

Tragically, many were killed last night. But it is also tragic that there was not another gun-toting Samuel Williams at the theater — the senior who rescued several Floridians against two armed thugs at an Internet cafe last week. (You can read the story and watch the exciting video here.)

 

And of course, while the national media is sure to focus on this Aurora, Colorado shooting for days to come, there is another shooting in that same city that you probably heard nothing about — when a worshipper at an Aurora church stopped a shooting this past April.

 

In that shooting, the bad guy was only able to kill one person in the parking lot, as the armed hero took him out before any other damage could be done.

 

Funny how the national media tends NOT to pick up stories where the good guy stops the perp!

 

To keep this in perspective, whenever we hear about horrid shootings like the one last night in Aurora, Colorado, we should remember that guns save as many as 80 lives for every one that is tragically taken. See the Gun Owners of America Fact Sheet here.

 

Gun Owners of America is appearing on several media outlets today to answer questions about our gun rights and to offer concealed carry solutions as the cure to future acts of terrorism like this.

 

Also, you can call in to GOA Radio Live to discuss this event with our Talk Show host, Bill Frady, from 6:00-8:00 pm tonight. Call 703-776-9264 to be on the show. GOA’s Larry Pratt will be interviewed by Frady next week.

 

Please stand with us and help GOA continue defending our gun rights across the country.

The murder of 13 moviegoers last night in a Denver-area theater was horrific.

 

My prayers, and the prayers of our staff and members, go out to the families of the victims and those wounded in this attack.

 

Living in Colorado, this attack strikes close to home for me.

 

I was sad this morning, but now I’m angry.

 

I’m angry that the theater bans law-abiding citizens from arming themselves for self-defense.

 

I’m angry that this deranged lunatic murdered men, women and children in a senseless act of violence.

 

And I’m outraged that already, not even twelve hours after the shooting, the gun control vultures are circling the victims.

 

This morning, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has taken to the airwaves to exploit the blood of innocents to advance his radical anti-gun agenda.

 

Never one to let a “crisis go to waste,” Bloomberg is demanding both President Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney publicly come out in favor of expanding gun control.

 

While Colorado and the nation remain in a state of shock and grief, the Bloomberg political machine is callously exploiting this tragedy to churn out their anti-gun lies and rhetoric.

 

Make no mistake — this is a dangerous time right now for our gun rights.

 

President Obama and Republican Mitt Romney are neck-and-neck in the Presidential race and they’re desperate.

 

With a sinking economy and lackluster campaigns, they’re BOTH looking for any advantage they can muster.

 

And that means OUR Constitutionally-protected gun rights are certain to be in their sights.

 

You and I both know what President Obama thinks of gun owners . . .

 

. . . he thinks we’re “bitter” hicks, who “cling to our guns.”

 

But Mitt Romney’s record is no better. As Governor of Massachusetts he permanently banned an entire class of firearms.

 

Tragedies like last night’s movie theater shooting are just the sort of thing that the gun-banners have been waiting to exploit.

 

They will use this tragedy — and others like it — to call for “action.”

 

You and I both know their “call to action” means more gun control.

 

As gun owners and gun rights activists we MUST be vigilant in these times — not just in the defense of our loved ones, but in defense of our right to keep and bear arms.

 

With the UN “Small Arms Treaty” gun control meetings in New York City concluding exactly one week from today, it looks more likely than ever Barack Obama will attempt some sort of election-year gun grab.

 

In the name of public or international safety, and under pressure to conform to international “law,” that could mean a ban on inexpensive, imported ammunition . . .

 

. . . or a ban on full-capacity magazines . . .

 

. . . or an outright ban on civilian ownership of handguns . . .

 

. . . or worse yet, they could attack our very right to own firearms at all!

 

To make matters worse, Republican nominee Mitt Romney might help him!

 

You and I both know that Barack Obama, Michael Bloomberg and left-wing international gun-grabbers will work every angle of this shooting as an excuse to restrict our rights.

 

Our right to defend ourselves and our families from violent thugs — and anti-gun politicians — hangs in the balance on a daily basis.

 

Here is what you can do to help:

 

*** Please pray for the families of the victims and those injured by the horrific attack near Denver.

 

*** Gun grabbers seize upon every outrage and crime, so we must always be prepared.

For Freedom,

 

Dudley Brown

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.

 

Representative Tom Lubnau (R-Gillette) Speaks with forked tongue

February 20, 2012

In an interview on Glenn Woods radio show (AM1270 in Gillette) Representative Tom Lubnau (R-Gillette) stated that HB-60 preemption reform legislationwas a “crazy gun bill”.

Of course Lubnau says he didn’t shoot down the bill –Reality Check– the bill failed 2 votes shy of the 2/3rds majority – 38-21. And YES Lubnau was a no vote!

Click here to listen Glenn Woods AM1270 — Tom Lubnau

In a stupendous reach he also said- “I’m not going to place police officers in jeopardy of being fired for going up to a suicidal person and saying, ‘Why don’t you put that gun down’”.

Using scare tactics regularly echoed by the gun control crowd, Lubnau has now reached a new plateau as he untruthfully suggested that all common sense would be thrown out the window if this bill advanced.

HB-60 is virtually identical to a bill that was signed into law by Florida’s governor — putting an end to three decades of local government crushing the citizen’s right to keep and bear arms.

Incredibly during his interview Lubnau also defended his “so-called” pro-gun position while adding he is in Cheyenne to read the bills. But don’t be fooled!

Because soon afterwards, the “Republican Floor Leader” slithered back to his previous mode of operation.

Here it comes. Wait for it…

The “Republican” floor leader is now supporting one of the largest expansions of gun free zones in Wyoming.

HB-70 a bill that is disguised as a court security measure — when in fact it specifies a change to current statute making “All COUNTY BUILDINGS containing a district or circuit court” a gun free zone or better named “criminal safe zone”.

This legislation will relocate the “secured area” of the court room to the “front door of the county building”. Please forgive me for being redundant…If HB-70 passes it will be one of the largest expansions of gun free zones in Wyoming ever witnessed.

So much for Tom Lubnau “reading the bills in our best interest” and being (in his own words) an “ardent supporter of your gun rights” — Since he now is advancing legislation that goes hand in hand with a proposal by anti-gun Gillette Mayor who wants a similar gun ban on all city property.

By the way, when I confronted anti-gun Mayor Tom Murphy about his gun ban, he responded by boiling over and sticking his finger in my face.

It appears that Lubnau is working for his local government officials in “Gillette” instead of defending the rights of the voters that elected him to office.

Wyoming Gun Owners is the ONLY gun rights organization working at this level — Exposing anti-gun politicians, lobbying to pass pro gun legislation and working to stop all gun control in Wyoming.

I stand by my statement — Representative Tom Lubnau the “Republican floor leader” should step down and let someone else take the helm.

Yet another politician wants to change our state into a Free Fire Zone for criminals! His stated reasons, are as usual, illogical and based upon some distorted sense of political correctness. We, the people of Wyoming need better from our leaders. Think about it folks. The gang bangers are not just in Cheyenne where there is a tremendous amount of law enforcement. They have spread out all across our state, and it is only a matter of time before something disastrous happens.

Courts only..? Just how long will that last? Not to mention that the man literally insults the intelligence of our Police Officers. Even a dumb Paramedic like me knows better than to just walk up to a suicidal person with a gun… Blue suicide..? The steps leading up to the Courthouse work just as well for that.

Will the next Columbine or Virginia State happen here? Don’t think for one second that this will remain only a Court building thing. If so will only the criminals be lawfully armed until the Police arrive? Two or three minutes is a VERY long time when some misfit is armed with a full auto weapon that is practicing the spray and pray method of marksmanship.

We, the people of Wyoming need to hold our leaders feet to the fire whenever they practice the politics of political correctness, and I call upon every single member of  Mr. Lubnau’s district to give him an earful over this. Then, come next election cycle, send him back home and remind him about why he is there at home at every opportunity!

CSU: Above the law…

February 27, 2010
Colorado State University Approves Proposal Outlawing Concealed Carry on Campus
Friday, February 26, 2010
As we have reported, the Colorado State University (CSU) System Board of Governors drafted a proposal that would prohibit firearms on all CSU campuses with exemptions for law enforcement, military and the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC).

On Tuesday, February 23, the Board of Governors approved the proposal.  The final approved weapons policy can be found at http://csusystem.edu/pages/documents/CSUWeaponsPolicyFinalasof021710.pdf.

The Board of Governors drafted the policy knowing that it would violate the Colorado state firearm preemption law and the Colorado Uniform Shall-Issue Concealed Carry Law.  Current state law strictly regulates the carry or transport of firearms on schools, colleges and universities.

Their vote against concealed carry and self-defense is unfortunate and disappointing.  Please contact President Tony Frank TODAY by phone at 970-491-6211 or email presofc@colostate.edu and respectfully voice your disapproval with the Board of Governor’s actions.

Student leaders urge CSU president to keep concealed-carry policy on campus

December 4, 2009

Seems that the students agree with Senator Brophy on this one. They have no interest in becoming another Columbine via having a Free Fire Zone for a campus.

Student leaders at Colorado State University voted overwhelmingly Wednesday night in favor of a resolution asking school president Tony Frank to continue to allow people with concealed-weapon permits to go armed on campus.

“I feel students have a right to have a measure of self-defense on campus,” said sophomore Cooper Anderson, a student senator representing the College of Agriculture Sciences and a co-author of the resolution.

“It’s a fact that crime doesn’t stop at the university’s doorstep.”

He added the change departs from state law and university policy.
