Some of the biggest enemies to freedom and the Second Amendment in the entire country are coming after Wyoming Gun Owners — and they won’t rest until they have shut us down for good.
No, this isn’t a joke.
Our nation is in incredible turmoil right now as just a few weeks ago, Antifa thugs were rioting in our streets, burning down our businesses, and shooting at cops across the country.
Even right here in Wyoming, we’ve had business board up their windows and close their doors as the authorities couldn’t ensure public safety in the midst of these riotous attacks.
ANYONE who stands up to this lawlessness is labeled a racist! ANYONE who stands up for law and order is attacked! ANYONE who stands up for peace officers is deemed a fascist!
But here at Wyoming Gun Owners, we’ve never wavered in our support of the Second Amendment and for the values that have made this country — and our beautiful state — a shining light to the entire world.
And for standing up against these thugs, I have received over a dozen death threats as well as threats against my family that are too graphic to describe here.
Honestly, I’ve grown somewhat used to this after fighting for gun owners for the last twelve years in multiple states.
But now the Southern Poverty Law Center is gunning for Wyoming Gun Owners, claiming that the work we do for gun owners is hateful, and they are doing everything they can to get the IRS to shut our doors forever!
Of course, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is a scandal-ridden cest pool who recently fired their founder as well as their board chairman for sexually harassing their own staff members, as well as stashing millions of dollars in an overseas bank account!
But that’s not stopping the SPLC from attacking Wyoming Gun Owners, urging the IRS to yank our non-for profit status which would effectively shut us down, just weeks before the 2020 General Election season is set to go into high gear!
And that’s why I’m writing you today.
You see, everything is on the line here in Wyoming this year. While the presidential election is capturing most of the news, we can’t forget that Michael Bloomberg is targeting state legislatures all over the country, too.
Bloomberg’s goal is simple.
The more America-hating socialists he can put in power in Cheyenne, the greater his chances of repealing our all-important Stand-Your-Ground law while also advancing ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation!
While we’ve sent a big message during the primary season that just ended, we have a lot more work to do during the upcoming General Election season.
The very last thing we have time (or money) for right now is a trumped-up legal threat from the IRS at the behest of the Southern Poverty Law Center!
When David Ball launched Wyoming Gun Owners twelve years ago, we never would have dreamed that things like this would happen in America — much less in Wyoming.
But if the last few years have taught us anything, it’s that the left will use bogus allegations, manufactured dossiers, and politically driven ‘special prosecutors’ in their attempt to try to destroy President Trump and anyone else who stands up for freedom.
So I guess we should not be that surprised that our political opponents are trying to do the exact same thing to Wyoming Gun Owners!
Sadly, it doesn’t matter that WYGO plays by the rules. It doesn’t matter that we don’t break laws (or even bend them) like so many left-leaning organizations do.
The only reason that we’re being attacked by the SPLC is because we are proud to fight for the Second Amendment and we are ruthlessly effective at exposing sell-out moderates and radical socialists at election time. They simply must destroy us.
That’s why, as you’ll see, I’ve prepared a brief three-question Wyoming Gun Owners Member Ballot for your review.
This is a member driven organization, it always has been, and that is why I’m counting on receiving your advice right away.
As it stands right now, I do not have the funds to expose the radical socialists who are trying to destroy our Second Amendment during the fall elections while also preparing for an expensive legal attack on Wyoming Gun Owners at the same time.
In other words, WYGO will be a sitting duck if a SPLC-initiated accusation turns into a full-fledged IRS investigation.
Sure, we’ve done nothing wrong. But that doesn’t matter, because even when we win these bogus fights, the cost in time and money are extremely expensive.
Honestly, I think that is the goal of these attacks in the first place. To force us to spend precious time and money fighting to defend ourselves — rather than fighting to expose radical gun-grabbers and back-stabbing moderates in Cheyenne!
The SPLC, Bloomberg’s forces, and radical socialists in the Capitol know that Wyoming Gun Owners (backed up by tens of thousands of Wyomingites) is the one thing standing between them and their goal of dismantling our Second Amendment rights in Cheyenne.
And if they can force us to close our doors, they will be free to take a sledgehammer to our most cherished freedoms without having to worry about paying a price at election time!
I’ve never, ever believed that’s the way politics should work — not for a second. I still believe politicians work for us, not the other way around.
Without organizations like Wyoming Gun Owners out there to call politicians to the carpet for their records, I shudder to think how many MORE of our freedoms would have already been tossed by the wayside.
That’s why they want to shut us up so badly ahead of the 2020 General Election — so we can’t expose their radical gun control agenda!
Just a few of the races where Wyoming Gun Owners needs to expose gun grabbers using our email program, targeted social media, and radio and internet ads include:
>>> State Senate District 12; where Democrat Senator Liisa Anselmi-Dalton is hoping that gun owners forget about her votes against Stand-Your-Ground law (HB-168,) Pre-Emption Reform (SF75,) and Gun Free Zone repeal (SF-88.) John Kolb, on the other hand, has surveyed 100% pro-gun!
>>> State House District 45; where Democrat State Representative Charles Pelkey has been at war against our gun rights for years by opposing Stand-Your-Ground law (HB-168,) legislation to rid Wyoming of deadly ‘Gun Free Zones’ (HB-137) and much more. Roxie Hensley has pledged 100% support for our gun rights and is opposed to Pelkey’s agenda!
>>> State House District 55; an open seat where Ember Oakley is hoping that no one will find out about her support for radical gun control including ‘Red Flag Gun Seizures,’ ‘Universal Gun Registration’ and more! Bethany Baldes, on the other hand, is a strong supporter of our Second Amendment freedoms!
Of course, these are just a handful of the races that we are looking at in the state legislature. There may end up being almost a dozen races that need our attention this fall.
Each of these races matter!
Each of these races means one more vote for Second Amendment freedom, or one more vote for radical socialism! As gun owners, we have a real chance to send a message this fall. And that’s why our 2020 election program is so vitally important!
In fact, until just a few days ago, my hope was to run a massive program throughout October — using mail, email, digital ads, and even hard-hitting radio and TV ads if I could raise the money to pay for them.
But I’m afraid, as it stands right now, I won’t be able to afford to deal with a legal challenge to Wyoming Gun Owners’ non-profit status AND still fund our election programs at the same time.
I know we’ve done nothing wrong. But neither did President Trump when he ran for office in 2016. That doesn’t matter. Today’s insane leftists want to DESTROY anyone who stands against their hate-American agenda and they’ll do anything to accomplish their goal. So we simply must prepare for the worst.
That’s why I need you to tell me what to do:
OPTION #1: Should I ignore the attack from the South Poverty Law Center, hope the IRS doesn’t try to close our doors forever, and go all-in with a full-scale program to expose anti-gun candidates this fall?
OPTION #2: Should I just give in to the pressure and cancel our election program, play it safe, and focus exclusively on getting ready to defend WYGO from these spurious legal attacks?
I know what I want to do. But I don’t have millions of dollars sitting around in the bank like BILLIONAIRE Michael Bloomberg and his pals do.
Wyoming Gun Owners has always run on a shoestring budget, and that’s especially true with so many Wyomingites recovering from the Covid-19 debacle.
OPTION #3 just really isn’t an “option” without a massive and IMMEDIATE influx of funds from WYGO members and supporters.
I know that’s asking a lot, but the stakes couldn’t be higher and doing nothing is just not an option.
I don’t know about you, but the idea that a scandal-ridden ultra-leftist organization can simply accuse WYGO of being an evil organization and expect us to shut down makes my blood boil!
They are the ones who hate freedom! They are the ones who hate our President. They are the ones who want to silence the voice of Second Amendment supporters everywhere!
So I’ll be damned if I’m going to stand by and do nothing while hordes of raging socialists in Washington (and our own State Capitol) try to strip us of our precious Second Amendment freedoms!
The election season will be in full swing shortly, and the attacks on our gun rights are only going to heat up, so I need to hear from you right away.
Wyoming Gun Owners
P.S. The scandal-ridden Southern Poverty Law Center (who just fired their founder as well as their board chairman for sexually harassing staff members and hiding millions of dollars in overseas accounts) is trying to close Wyoming Gun Owners’ doors forever!
With the 2020 General Election cycle just about to kick off, I have some very critical decisions to make and I have to make them fast –- so I need to hear from you right away.
