Wyoming – -(AmmoLand.com)- For the ten years she was elected, gun owners in Wyoming have heard Mary Throne tell us how much she supports the Second Amendment.
Now, as she runs for Governor, Throne is regaling gun owners with stories of her childhood and the gun that her dad kept behind the front door.
She’s a stalwart supporter of gun rights…
…or that’s what she wants you to believe anyway.
The truth on Mary Throne is much uglier.
The reality is that Mary Throne has a record of backing gun control that SPANS ALMOST A DECADE!
Now that she is seeking to be Wyoming’s next Governor, she will be doing everything she can to hide the ugly truth about her voting record on the Second Amendment.
That’s why Wyoming Gun Owners has taken the time to compile this list of Throne’s most unforgiveable votes against Second Amendment freedom.
Once you read this, I hope you will do two things with the information — more on that below!
As you will see below, this wasn’t just a one-time occurrence.
Throne’s record of attacking gun rights, and gun owners, spans almost a DECADE! Consider:
Number 1: Throne’s vote TO MAINTAIN the deadly ‘Gun Free Zones’ that leave you and I defenseless in almost all government buildings. (H.B. 114 2/2/2015)
This, despite the fact that ‘Gun Free Zones’ are routinely attacked by madmen looking to rack up a body count!
Number 2: Throne’s vote AGAINST using silencers while hunting, something that dozens and dozens of states allow for. (S.F. 132 2/13/13)
Every gun owner knows that silencers aren’t only used by criminals, but save the hearing of gun owners and don’t scare the game that other hunters are stalking nearby.
Number 3: Throne’s vote AGAINST the Wyoming Firearms Protection Act, which would negate federal gun control foisted upon Wyoming by then President Obama! (H.B. 104 2/1/2013)
This very popular bill would simply assert Wyoming’s sovereignty and require state officials to not enforce any of Obama’s gun control mandates.
Number 4: Throne’s vote AGAINST legislation that requires state approval of any local gun control, passed by anti-gun localities, who had a vendetta against the Second Amendment. (H.B. 103 2/1/13)
This bill would make sure that Wyoming citizen’s Second Amendment freedoms could not be trampled on by a local governmental entity, absent state approval. This bill was so popular, Throne was one of just 6 lawmakers to oppose it!
Number 5: Throne’s vote AGAINST a bill that allows for the carrying of concealed handguns on all school property, including college campuses! (H.B. 105 2/1/13)
Nothing is more extreme than voting to leave our children and young adults, the most helpless among us, vulnerable to a violent attack by refusing to allow teachers, administrators, and other law-abiding citizens the right to carry on school grounds.
Number 6: Throne’s votes AGAINST Constitutional Carry! (S.F. 47 2/25/11)
This landmark bill simply makes the concealed carry permit optional for law abiding citizens, as over a dozen other states do.
Number 7: Throne’s vote AGAINST allowing employees to leave their firearms secured in their vehicle while at work. (H.B. 207 2/9/11)
By opposing this bill, Throne voted to continue the process where employees must go to and from work unarmed, or risk losing their job.
Number 8: Throne’s vote AGAINST legislation that would allow firearms manufactured in Wyoming to no longer be subject to federal firearms regulations. (H.B. 95 3/3/2010)
Since the firearms are made and sold in the same state, interstate commerce laws would not apply, freeing manufactures from cumbersome federal regulations.
From opposing Constitutional Carry, to blocking bills to help keep our kids safe, to supporting the Obama gun control agenda – Mary Throne’s record against gun rights is atrocious!
And, as you can see, her war against your gun rights has spanned years, for virtually the entirety of her ten years in the House.
But it’s not enough that you and I possess this information.
It’s essential that Wyoming Gun Owners be able to get this information out to tens of thousands of gun owners in Wyoming, so they can have the facts!
Throne’s spin machine is already running at full tilt, and that is only going to increase as we move into campaign season.
That’s why I am asking WYGO supporters to make a generous donation to help us get the facts out about Throne’s war on the Second Amendment!
Honestly, exposing Throne is about more than just Mary Throne.
That’s because there are numerous lawmakers on ‘our side’ in Cheyenne who have championed her before, and some that may be tempted to do so again.
But by unleashing on Throne, you and I are reminding every elected official in Wyoming that there is a price to be paid for standing against gun owners -– a price that we won’t fail to collect!
Some of you have the ability to underwrite a sizable portion of our program using one of the options here; in fact, some of you already have.
Again, I don’t know what you can afford.
What I know is that we can’t afford to let Throne get away with hiding the truth about her record!
So please, whatever you can do, please donate immediately to help us fund the program I laid out above!
Thank you, in advance, for standing with us in the fight to defend the 2nd Amendment here in Wyoming!
