Do You Have Two Minutes and a Cell Phone?

We’re down to the wire! Insiders have reported to us that Governor Mead intends to veto HB 137 as early as MONDAY MORNING! But we’re hearing that Mead is also nervous about the potential blowback from gun owners here in Wyoming should he block this gun bill. That’s why it’s absolutely essential that you call him immediately and insist that he sign this bill into law or allow it to

Gov. Mead Trusts Felons With Guns – Does He Trust You?

As time runs short on Gov. Mead’s ability to sign HB 137 into law, you should know that yesterday he signed HB 231 into law. HB 231 allows convicted felons — even felons convicted of violent felonies — to have the right to purchase and possess black powder firearms restored here in Wyoming. Don’t misunderstand, we’re not saying that it’s wrong for certain groups of convicted criminals to have their

Governor Mead to Veto HB 137?

This is the rumor that’s swirling around Cheyenne as insiders report to us that Governor Mead is on the verge of doing the bidding of gun grabbers — by vetoing HB 137! This is outrageous and I need your immediate action to help stop it. As a reminder, HB137 simply removes the current ‘Gun Free Zone’ policies that ban concealed carry in our state capitol, county buildings, city halls and

HB 137 Clears the Legislature!

After a tumultuous few days in the House, HB 137 cleared the final legislative hurdle when it passed the House yesterday! And I have to tell you, this was only due to your relentless pressure. At so many points in the process over the last three days, anti-gun lobby organizations and moderates in the legislature came close to shutting this bill down. But the grassroots pressure of WyGo members made

HB 137 Passes Senate, Final Vote Coming in House Today!

You did it! HB 137, our bill that would repeal “Gun Free Zone” policies in the State Capitol, City Hals, county buildings, and more passed the Senate today in a 20-10 vote! Senator Von Flatern tried to undermine the bill with a hostile amendment. He failed. Senator Ellis tried to do the same thing. She failed. Your calls and emails insisting that the Senate refuse all hostile amendments were successful,

It All Comes Down to This Morning in Cheyenne!

Like we told you late last week, HB 137 passed in the Senate by a narrow vote. Senator Burns’ anti-gun amendment, which would gut the entirety of the bill, was shot down by a vote of 16-13 — far too close for comfort. As a reminder, HB 137 would remove the current ban on carrying concealed with a permit in government buildings like the State Capitol, city halls, county buildings,

Pro-Gun Legislation Passes Second Reading, One Vote Left!

Thank you so much for your calls and emails yesterday into the Wyoming Senate! Thanks to your activism, the Senate rejected the anti-gun amendment that was offered by Senator Burns which would have totally undermined the bill. As a reminder, HB 137 would repeal the prohibition on carrying firearms in government buildings like the Capitol, city halls, locations where county commissioners hold meetings, and more to every gun owner with

URGENT! Vote on HB137 Coming in Two Hours!

In just a few hours, we’re going to see a vote on HB 137 –- the bill that would repeal “Gun Free Zones” in government buildings. It’s absolutely vital that you call your Senator right away and insist that he or she support this legislation! But it’s not enough that they vote for the bill. We’ve just been informed that an amendment will be offered on the bill that would

Campus Carry Legislation Killed by the Wyoming Senate!

In an outrageous betrayal of gun owners, the Wyoming Senate just voted to kill our Campus Carry legislation (HB 136) by a vote of 17-13 earlier today! This means that teachers, students, and staff at all of Wyoming’s public universities are going to be left totally helpless in the face of an armed madman. All this in a Senate chamber that purports to be pro-gun! Understand this, this isn’t Colorado

Senate Vote Just Hours Away!

I just got off the phone with our insiders in Cheyenne and with the vote just hours away on HB 136 and HB 137 –- I don’t know if we have enough votes yet! For the Wyoming Senate — which holds itself out to be amoungst the most pro-gun legislative bodies in the country –- to crush these bills would be outrageous. The following Senators, in particular, need to hear
