The truth is they don’t like the fact that constitutional carry was passed into law allowing law-abiding citizens (like you and I) to carry a firearm to defend ourselves without asking: “big brother – may I”.
And now inserting themselves into the fight against your gun rights are the Natrona County Commissioners.
A statement made just yesterday is so telling about their real agenda –“This is asinine to have these guys telling Casper they can't pass a gun ordinance”, Commissioner Rob Hendry said about HB-60 during a county business meeting.
Two other fellow Commissioners vowed to lobby the legislature against HB-60 as well. As it seems, now more and more of the “local level” anti-gun politicians are showing their true colors. Of course this reveals what we already knew — It's all about power and control.
Because of this and the fact that HB-60 bill sponsors are literally sticking their necks out to defend your right to carry — Please contact your house representative immediately!
I suspect that more county and city politicians will soon join in the lobbying efforts claiming “home rule” over your right to keep and bear arms — despite that Wyoming has a state preemption.
This is exactly what has happened in so many other states, the gun-grabbers planned and executed a systematic assault on the state preemption by implementing “local level” gun control.
Here’s the light in the tunnel–
Just last year Florida legislators passed a “preemption defense” measure similar to Wyoming’s HB-60 — To put an end to the misguided actions of local politicians carrying the water for the anti-gun organizations like “mayors against guns” formed by billionaire New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
HB-60 will give the current state preemption the “teeth” needed to fend off the gun-control crowd within local governments here in Wyoming.
But it won’t happen unless you act.
Please email your House Representative by this morning and ask them to support “HB-60 Preemption Defense” legislation being introduced by Representative Kendell Kroeker . Tell them that we need to stop the local governments from infringing on our gun rights.
