Senate Committee Kills Gun Bill!

Earlier today, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to kill Senate File 75 by a vote of 3-2! This was an incredible insult to the thousands of gun owners who campaigned for pro-gun candidates, donated to pro-gun candidates, and voted for pro-gun candidates last year. Senator Liisa Anselmi-Dalton — the committee’s only Democrat — joined Republican Senators Michael Von Flatern and RJ Kost to kill this bill. In other words, it

VIDEO Update from Cheyenne on Second Amendment Fight!

It was a huge week in Cheyenne in our fight to end ‘Gun Free Zones’ and fix our pre-emption problems. The Senate voted to stick our bill, SF 75, into the Senate’s most hostile committee. We have an impending Senate Judiciary Committee vote, and we have a House companion bill in the works with almost three dozen cosponsors. With so much going on, I’ve asked our Policy Advisor, Aaron Dorr,

Committee Vote Coming Wednesday!

It’s been a very busy week in Cheyenne in the fight for gun rights and there is urgent action that you need to take, so please keep reading. First, the bad news. The Senate voted earlier this week to keep SF-75 in the Judiciary Committee — a notoriously hostile committee — by a vote of 16-14. This bill would do away with deadly ‘Gun Free Zones’ in Wyoming once and

The Fight for Gun Rights is On in Cheyenne!

Moments ago, the gavel fell on the start of the 2019 legislative session in Cheyenne! And while this is the ‘long session,’ lawmakers anticipate adjourning the session in less than two months — meaning we have to act fast! That’s why WYGO has prepared two action items for you below, that we hope you’ll take advantage of immediately. More on that in a moment. Gun owners in Wyoming must maintain

Gun Rights Battle Starts Tomorrow in Cheyenne!

It all starts tomorrow! The 2019 legislative session starts tomorrow, and our fight to rid Wyoming of deadly ‘Gun Free Zones’ will go into high gear. We all know that not only do so-called ‘Gun Free Zones’ not reduce crime, they invite it, as armed madmen know that no one can stop them in these areas. WYGO members may remember that this very bill passed the House and Senate in

A Mass Murderers’ Favorite Target

‘Gun Free Zones’ are lethal. That’s because every madman looking to rack up a body count knows that he will face ZERO OPPOSITION in these places, thanks to shortsighted politicians. In fact, over the last ten years, an incredible 300 people have been murdered in these so-called ‘Gun Free Zones’ in America, while 662 more received life altering wounds. And despite the fact that Wyoming has Stand-Your-Ground and Constitutional Carry

Will You Stand With Me in Cheyenne Next Session?

I’ll admit I was a little saddened by the news . . . But Wyoming Gun Owners President David Ball — a good friend of mine — tells me he hasn’t heard from you about renewing your membership for 2019. As the former Executive Director for Wyoming Gun Owners, I know what a difference every supporter makes. Of course, if you’ve already sent in your 2019 renewal contribution, THANK YOU! 

NRA Exposed: Their Deadly Support for Red Flag Gun Seizure Laws

I take no great pleasure in writing this email. But it’s an email I have to write, to prepare you for the fight over ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation that may be coming to Wyoming –- and that is spreading across the country. ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ legislation would empower left-wing judges to order your firearms confiscated without due process. No charges, no day in court, no conviction of anything

Wyoming’s Chance to Repeal Gun Free Zones!

I still remember the anger I felt when I got the call in late March of last year, when Governor Mead told our bill sponsor that he was going to veto HB137. This was our bill to repeal so-called ‘Gun Free Zones’ that are in effect in so many public buildings and campuses throughout the state. Thanks to all of your calls and emails, the legislature passed the bill and

Video Update on Gun Rights in Wyoming!

The 2019 legislative session is right around the corner. Gun owners will remember that passing Stand-Your-Ground law was a major battle — one that we almost lost — and with gun grabbers picking up steam through 2018, this is no time to sit back and relax. That’s why I’ve asked our Policy Advisor, Aaron Dorr, to prepare this video update on what’s at stake next session. Please watch this video
