With little fanfare, HB 136 and HB 137 were passed through the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday by a vote of 4 to 1!
Senator Liisa Anselmi-Dalton was the lone no vote.
Remember, the Senate hasn’t moved a single gun bill here in Wyoming in five years. Clearly your calls, emails, and Facebook messages are being heard loud and clear!
WyGo’s Membership Coordinator Michelle Sabrosky was on hand testifying on behalf of WyGo members, making sure that the anti-gun lobbyist’s lies didn’t go unchallenged.
As a reminder, HB 136 would allow for Campus Carry here in Wyoming, for those who possess a permit to do so.
HB 137 would simply lift the ban on carrying in government buildings where you and I pay property taxes, register vehicles, get registered to vote, and attend to county government business.
Both of these bills are designed to repeal the deadly “Gun Free Zones” that we have here in Wyoming.
As everyone knows, bloodthirsty killers always prefer to launch their attacks in these so-called “Gun Free Zones” because they know that the chances of meeting an armed citizen here is virtually non-existent.
Hundreds of people have paid the price for this stupidity in blood at schools, churches, office complexes, and more!
It’s time to end this here in Wyoming, and that’s exactly what HB 136 and HB 137 would do.
Thanks to all of your activism this session we’ve cleared the House Committee, the full House, and now the Senate Committee.
But we’re not finished yet!
This is the dangerous part, where sneaky back-room amendments could be added on at the last minute and greatly undermine the effectiveness of these bills.
We’ve already seen some of that this year, with Rep. Eklund’s ‘Trojan Horse’ legislation, HB 194, which would utterly destroy our Campus Carry legislation.
That’s why it’s vital that we ramp up the pressure as we head for the eventual floor vote on these bills.
Please contact your Senator immediately, and tell him to support HB 136 and HB 137 and to oppose any amendment that would water down these bills!

Then please email him right away.
Then send him a message via Facebook.
Then give him a call, using the number given in the link above.
Do all three, and do it right away.
We can’t let the momentum slip on either of these bills!
Now is the time to send a message to the legislature in Cheyenne that gun owners are mobilized and organized –- and we’re done with campaign promises that don’t result in legislative action.
So don’t let up now, not when we’ve come so far!
Make your calls today!
No one fights harder in Cheyenne than us!
No one keeps you more informed than us.
And no one will fight harder to expose anti-gun legislators at election time than us.
Either way, please help us keep the pressure up in Cheyenne by contacting your Senator right away.
P.S. Thanks to a barrage of calls and emails from WyGo members, both HB 136 and HB 137 passed through the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday.
Even better, there were no weakening amendments!
Now the fight moves to the full Senate. That’s why I need you to contact your Senator right away and make sure he knows what you expect of him!
