Video Update from Senator Bouchard!

As we told you in our last email, University of Wyoming President Laurie Nichols is on a war-path against gun owners and has been for a long time.

Recently, this resulted in a gun owner being cited and charged while open carrying in compliance with state code while attending the state GOP convention in Laramie.

This, even though state law allows for the open carrying of firearms on campus, and our state Constitution forbids infringements like this on public property.

Oh yeah, despite claims to the contrary, UW is all but a wholly owned subsidiary of the taxpayers of the state of Wyoming, taking in a whopping $465 million dollars in taxpayer money over the next 2-year cycle!

This is why the current policy of harassing and charging gun owners with ‘crimes’ for carrying on this property is so offensive — and needs to be addressed by the legislature.

In the meantime, take a moment and watch this video of Senator Anthony Bouchard discussing what happened at UW.

As you just heard, the idea that you can carry on liberal Colorado campuses but will be charged for doing the same thing here in Wyoming is simply absurd!

If you agree, please do three things right now to help us fix this in the legislature:

First, sign your petition demanding that the legislature do away with deadly ‘Gun Free Zones’ that only embolden criminals and are used to harass gun owners.

Third, become a member of Wyoming Gun Owners today, so that we have the resources we need to fight with in Cheyenne!

The moment that you and I stop fighting for the Second Amendment will be the moment that gun control begins to take a foothold in our state.

We’ve all watched nearby states lose this fight over time, telling themselves that, ‘It won’t happen here,’ until one day it does.

So help us push back against this encroachment here in Wyoming, by taking the action steps we outlined above.

   For Freedom,

David Ball
   President
