Major Developments On Wyoming Stand-Your-Ground Law

Wyoming – -( Things are moving so fast in Cheyenne, it’s hard to put out emails fast enough!

As we told you Tuesday night, the Senate took a sledgehammer to our Stand-Your-Ground law with a massive strike-after amendment that gutted key components of the bill.

However, after your calls and emails demanding that they fix the bill, I’m happy to report that the Senate fixed much of the damage they did the day before!

  • The Senate then passed their Stand-Your-Ground bill (S.F. 71) through the Senate for the third and final time.
  • In the House, our bill there (H.B. 168) passed through today for the third and final time. Even better, it did so with no weakening amendments!

I can tell you that WYGO staff who are working the legislature are hearing from dozens of lawmakers about the number of calls and emails they are receiving from WYGO members!

Thank you so much for your activism — everyone here in the Capitol is hearing from you and talking about it!

From here, the process gets a little bit confusing.

Each chamber has passed a version of Stand-Your-Ground law. Now the opposite chamber needs to take up the other chamber’s version of Stand-Your-Ground law and pass it for this process to be over.

In other words, the House needs to pass the Senate’s version or the Senate needs to pass the House’s version — and it has to happen by the end of the day Monday!

In the coming days, we’re going to have action steps that we need you to take to make sure that your lawmakers know what you want them to do.

For today, I hope you’ll consider joining Wyoming Gun Owners as a member if you haven’t already done so.

I’ll be blunt: we need your help.

We have been mobilizing people using targeted social media, radio ads, direct mail, not to mention having our membership coordinator speaking to groups all over the state.

Our policy advisor has been working the scene in Cheyenne almost every day this session, for 8-12 hours a day.

We’re using every tool in our disposal to maintain the pressure in the Capitol, but we’re running low on funds to keep this going.

I am not a hot head nor a left or right follower. However I have said for years that if it is legal for a LE to pull the trigger then it should be the Same For All Of US. I think we have made it a little to easy for LEs to pop the cap, and WE seem to be addressing that issue. One never knows when one might be looking down a cops barrel as they are now trained to get their gun out first, and then address the person they are talking to. Scares The Poop Out… Read more »
