Thanks to all of your help, Stand-Your-Ground law has been passed by the Wyoming legislature this morning, and is now on Governor Mead’s desk awaiting his decision!
But this is no time to sit back and relax.
Powerful anti-gun organizations and lobbyists are, undoubtedly, urging the Governor to veto this bill!
We saw this last year, with our bill to end deadly ‘Gun Free Zones’ in Government buildings — the Wyoming Association of Municipalities was able to obtain the Governor’s veto on that bill.
We can’t let that happen to Stand-Your-Ground law.
Stand-Your-Ground law is in effect in 35 states, including every state in the West, except for Wyoming!
Stand-Your-Ground law simply removes the silly requirement that you have to retreat from a dangerous criminal, before you can take defensive action.
The bill also provides important criminal and civil protections, so you can’t be victimized by the system after being victimized by a violent criminal!
We’ve come a very long way in this effort to pass Stand-Your-Ground law, let’s make sure it wasn’t in vain!
P.S. Thanks to a massive amount of grassroots pressure from Wyoming Gun Owners members, Stand-Your-Ground legislation has passed the legislature and is awaiting Governor Mead’s signature!
