Gun Bills on the Move in Cheyenne!

It’s been a busy week for gun legislation in Wyoming. Because of the loud support from gun owners like you, Representative Bo Biteman’s “Campus Carry” bill — HB136 — passed out of the Wyoming House by a vote of 40-19 with no weakening amendments! Unfortunately, there’s a bit of foul play going on. Representative Eklund’s Trojan Horse bill — HB194 — also passed, and the two “Campus Carry” bills will

‘Poison Pill’ Legislation May Undermine Pro-Gun Bill!

I have good news and bad news to report. Thanks to your calls and emails, the disastrous and deadly bill proposed by Rep. Connolly to mandate a 3-day waiting period for firearm purchases has been killed in committee.

Trojan Horse Gun Vote Taking Place TODAY!

This happens time and time again. Two weeks ago, we warned you about a bait and switch bill being pushed behind the scenes by anti-gun State Representative John Eklund. Eklund has been a long-time thorn in the side of gun owners and is notorious in the legislature for working behind the scenes to water down, undermine, or outright kill pro-gun bills. And he’s at it again right now! Last week

Gun Vote Held Over Until Monday!

It’s been a busy week at the Capitol here in Cheyenne! As you know, HB136 and HB137 both passed through the full Judiciary Committee in the House this week, with WyGo staff on hand testifying in support of both bills. But between a busy House debate calendar and some House members who couldn’t be there Thursday and Friday — the full House vote on these bills has been delayed until

Things are happening fast in Cheyenne. Working with Representative Bo Biteman, we’ve introduced HB137 to repeal Wyoming’s deadly “Gun Free Zones” policy in all government buildings! Has your representative co-sponsored this legislation? We need them to stand with us and the other pro-gun legislators in support of this bill.

Trojan Horse Bill About to be Filed in Cheyenne!

Representative John Eklund is at it again! Long known for being anything but a friend to gun owners, Eklund is about to file legislation that is nothing short of a “Trojan Horse” in Cheyenne. And I’m afraid that unless you and I take quick action, it’s going to siphon badly needed oxygen on the pro-gun bills that Rep. Biteman has filed for us. I need your help, first let me
