Wyoming –-(Ammoland.com)- The war on freedom is hitting much closer to home, Platte County Wyoming to be exact.
Like you, I am outraged at the actions of President Obama, Harry Reid and Dianne Feinstein's attempt to repeal the Second Amendment.
And just as in Washington D.C. — the control freaks are at work right here in Wyoming.
Remember during the last session when WY state “educators” stormed the capitol in Cheyenne — demanding that our pro-gun legislation was killed in committee?
Well now they are scheming at the “local” level to rob you and me of our God-given rights.
The Platte County School Board and its “Republican Majority” are using “truancy” as a way to strip away constitutionally protected rights.
In Wheatland, WY this 9 year old boy was placed on probation for missing 19 days of school — even though his mother had approved the absent days (sick days and family emergencies) with the school.
Under the probation orders — minor children may not “own” any firearms — and must agree to random urine analysis.
But the state statute reveals this is a misdemeanor and the parents could receive 10 days in jail and/or a $25 fine.
But as if using the same playbook of the Obama administration — the “local control” freaks made truancy their latest crisis, so they could now violate citizen's rights.
All involved have ignored current law — since one must first be convicted of a “felony” in order to strip rights to posses firearms.
Of course this is how the anti-gun crowd rolls — all the players are in unison with every step maneuvering to crush civil liberties.
To drive their point (control) home, the bad actors will even railroad unsuspecting young children through a system that begins with an overzealous prosecutor, and ends with a heavy handed judge.
But let's not forget, it all started with the Platte county school board's policy…“Turn them over to the authorities” they say.
The “elected school board” should be ashamed of themselves — so far not one single school board member has lifted a finger to stop this egregious trampling of parental rights.
If fact, there are a dozen other families lined up to face the same judicial force.
Like in this photo of the Wheatland couple challenged with the day to day struggles of caring for their severely handicapped little girl — could now follow the same path and loss of rights.
It seem that in the eyes of the Platte County School Board nothing else matters, not even breathing tubes and stays in critical care that this family has recently endured.
Just as maddening are the “Lawyers” that claim we must remain silent because these children are now “in the judicial system“.
This is the same way the “control-program” rolls in many others states — by treating rights including the Second Amendment with outright contempt.
But we will not be silenced…
Last week I personally attended the school board meeting and witnessed their “appointed-bureaucrat-superintendent” running the show — so now the elected board members need to hear from you!
Did I mention that the Superintendent of Platte County Schools was appointed in 2012. And…that he applied in Wheatland after his former employer, a Minnesota School, failed to renew his contract that same year.
Please contact Platte County Schools today at (307)322-3175 and demand the school board ends this assault on God-given rights.To Liberty, Anthony Bouchard
