Wyoming –-(Ammoland.com)- Why are some “Republican” politicians grumbling, acting like little children, and placing blame for their actions on others?
It's simple, this is how a politician behaves when they don’t want to listen to their real boss — YOU.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Wyoming lawmakers whined about hearing from their constituents through emails, and it certainly won’t be the last.
But as you know — during this years session, they went too far — they did more than just complain! The Senate dug their heels in and said NO on much needed pro-gun legislation.
Truly – a left-wing movement – in the Wyoming legislature has reared up and showed its ugly head!
As if the Wyoming Senate is in lock step with that of the Colorado legislature — the clear danger is that anti-gun legislation in Wyoming may knocking at our door.
Unless you and I do something about it! — the Cowboy State — could suffer the same fate of Colorado and be under the control of the left-wing anti-gun politicians in both parties.
Here’s what you need to know about what actually happened during the 2013 general session:
As our pro-gun legislation reached the bottleneck – the anti-gun politicians started spewing their venom at us!
You see, WyGO works feverishly to report legislator's unfriendly actions on pro-gun legislation.
Up or down votes and any amendments –– which most of are crafted to weaken or gut the bill –– and this is how we tell when a legislator is an enemy to the Second Amendment — WyGO is there watching it all!
And if there’s anything I’ve learned during my time fighting for gun rights at the Capitol — it’s this: Cockroaches hate it when you turn lights on.
The hard truth is the current Republican leadership in both houses despises how we keep tabs on every anti-gun move as our legislation travels through the process!
In just one example this year, house leadership Speaker Tom Lubanu and Majority Leader Kermit Brown (both Republicans) enforced rules limiting our ability to video-record in the public gallery.
Yes, Lubnau and Brown don't want you to know what's really going on!
The Senate also attempting to remain behind a veil of secrecy — refused to vote on HB-105 in committee, and finally Senate floor leader Phil Nicholas (Republican-Albany) failed to release HB-103 and HB-104 to the floor for a vote, killing this crucial pro-gun legislation.
This is why Wyoming Gun Owners MUST now shift to being a full time, year round, grassroots organization.
In years past it was feasible to operate as a “part-time” gun rights group. But after witnessing the defiant leadership in both houses, truly the left-wingers in the Republican Party — it’s now evident we must implement changes to our game plan.
Of course, I don't want you to forget there are a few “Republican” pro-gun champions fighting for YOU in Cheyenne — Representative(s) Allen Jaggi (Uinta), Kendell Kroeker (Natrona) and Keith Gingery (Teton) who have labored tirelessly to dodge every obstacle thrown at them — so that WyGO’s freedom defending legislation can be advanced.
Remember, Wyoming Gun Owners is the state’s premiere level gun rights organization. There is simply no other grassroots organization taking action in the legislature at this level.
But you and I won’t be able to hold back the anti-gun forces under our current part-time organizational model.
Recruiting new members by mail is both time consuming and costly –– and I will need your help to accomplish the task at hand — which is to stop the politicians that march to the beat of gun-control crowd.
This is why I’m asking 3 things of you:
- If you haven’t done so already — please join Wyoming Gun Owners, and
- Please make a donation of $100, $50, $25, or whatever you can afford to help us move toward becoming a full time organization. http://wyominggunowners.org/join/
- Please tell others about WyGO and how crucial it is for Wyoming to have a full-time — no-compromise — gun rights organization.
Thank you for your help and support and please join me in accomplishing our the task of building Wyoming Gun Owners into Wyoming’s ONLY full time gun rights organization.
