Once Again, Gun Owners Like You Vanquish Reid and Obama

July 11, 2014
Gun Owners of America

Once Again, Gun Owners Like You Vanquish Reid and Obama – Kudos go to Senators Paul, Cruz, Lee and Cornyn
“Gun Owners of America [has] blasted the bill as a ‘fake pro-gun bill designed to re-elect endangered anti-gun [Senators] up in 2014 in pro-gun states.’” — Roll Call, July 9, 2014

Not a GOA member yet? Make sure to join Gun Owners of America!


Earlier today, the “Harry Reid Preservation Act,” S. 2363, went down to defeat, as pro-gun Senators successfully filibustered the bill by a vote of 56-41.  

In a last minute letter to Capitol Hill today, Gun Owners of America told Senators that a vote to end the filibuster “will be viewed as a vote AGAINST veterans … AGAINST concealed carry reciprocity … and AGAINST preserving the gun industry.”

GOA also warned Senators that a vote in favor of S. 2363 would be scored in our end-of-year rating.

As you know, S. 2363 was a “nothing-burger bill” which existed solely to elect anti-gun Democrats in Red States. This includes Senators like sponsor Kay Hagan (D-NC) — plus cosponsors such as Mark Begich (D-AK), Mark Pryor (D-AR), Mark Udall (D-CO), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Al Franken (D-MN) and Mark Warner (D-VA).

All these Senators are rated as D’s or F’s by Gun Owners of America.

S. 2363 would have allowed hunting on federal lands — unless Barack Obama determined that guns were dangerous. How likely do you think that is?

It would have allowed importation of polar bear parts.  Okay, that’s fine, in and of itself.  But that’s hardly a fair trade for passing a bill that will help reelect anti-gun Senators like Hagan, Begich, Pryor, Landrieu (and others) — Senators who will vote to confirm Obama’s anti-gun Supreme Court justices, thus overturning the Heller and McDonald decisions.

Thankfully, your help in asking Senators to offer truly pro-gun amendments paid dividends — and got noticed by the media. Said one media outlet on Monday:

“Gun Owners of America is urging its members to urge their senators to oppose the Sportsmen’s Act unless Reid allows [Ted] Cruz, [Mike] Lee, and [Rand] Paul the opportunity to offer meaningful, pro-gun amendments.”

These Senators, in addition to John Cornyn (R-TX) and Roger Wicker (R-MS), did a yeomen’s job in fighting to get genuinely pro-gun amendments offered to the bill. These included national concealed carry reciprocity, gun rights for 175,000 military veterans, and a shut-down of Eric Holder’s Operation Choke Point.

But Reid employed a bully-tactic to block all Republican amendments. It consisted of “treeing” the bill and then invoking “cloture” to make the amendments out of order.

Thus, the 41 anti-gun votes IN FAVOR of invoking cloture — thus ending the filibuster — were votes against veterans, reciprocity and gun dealers.

Fortunately, our strategy worked. Enough Republicans were outraged by Reid’s underhanded tricks they easily sustained a filibuster, thus killing the bill.  

Consider how significant your grassroots efforts were. All 26 Republicans who cosponsored the bill ended up listening to your collective voice and voted to filibuster — aka, kill — the bill.  They were joined by a handful of anti-gun Democrats who felt the bill didn’t have enough gun control.

So congratulations! And great work! Your activism is a tremendous asset to our efforts in protecting our gun rights. 

ACTION:  Contact your Senators. Thank them if they voted to support the filibuster on S. 2363. But rebuke them if they supported Harry Reid’s efforts shut off all debate on good, pro-gun amendments.

Round One of the Fight over S. 2363 — the Harry Reid Preservation Act

July 8, 2014

The Senate floor battle has now opened on the fake “pro-gun” bill designed to reelect endangered anti-gun Democrats up in 2014 in pro-gun states.

That bill is S. 2363, sponsored by anti-gun crazy Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC), with the chief cosponsors being endangered anti-gunners who are Mark Begich (D-AK), Mark Pryor (D-AR), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Mark Udall (D-CO), Mark Warner (D-VA) and Al Franken (D-MN).

By now, even the dumbest Senators realize that this “sportmen’s” bill is nothing but a political ploy to keep Harry Reid (D-NV) and Obama’s cronies in power in the Senate. An article in The Hill newspaper made this clear yesterday:

“The legislation is meant to help several red-state Democrats in tough reelection races this year. Co-sponsors include four other Dems who, like Hagan, are facing difficult reelection races this year: Sens. Mark Pryor (Ark.), Mark Begich (Alaska), Mary Landrieu (La.) and Mark Udall (Colo.).”

The Senate yesterday overcame the first hurdle in moving to consider the bill. But thankfully, there are several Senators who wanted to offer good, pro-gun amendments to the bill.

Senators John Cornyn (R-TX), Roger Wicker (R-MS), Rand Paul (R-KY), Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) are all heeding GOA’s call to threaten dozens of tough pro-gun amendments to the bill.

Senator Cornyn is prepared to offer a GOA-supported amendment to allow national concealed carry reciprocity.

Senator Wicker has told us he wants to allow guns on the Army Corps of Engineers’ land.

Senator Lee has told GOA he wants to change the Senate rules to prohibit any anti-gun amendments in the Senate.

And Senators Cruz and Paul have “tons of amendments,” including reciprocity, a restoration of gun rights for 175,000 veterans, and a shutdown of Eric Holder’s Operation Choke Point program (that is designed to close gun stores by cutting off their credit).

This is exactly what GOA (and you, our activists) have been encouraging pro-gun Senators to do over the past week. But we believe that Reid will now “tree” the bill — a process used to block any amendments from being offered.

And we believe that, when they are shut out of offering amendments, many (if not all) Republicans will vote against cloture on the bill.

So ultimately, we still stand a good chance of success. Thank you all for your activism!

ACTION: Contact your Senators and urge them to vote for the Cornyn, Paul, Cruz, Wicker, and Lee amendments. And, if Harry Reid tries to shut out amendments, ask them to oppose cloture on the bill.

 

The Sportsmen’s Act: Yet another sham…

July 2, 2014

Once again, anti-gun Senators like Kay Hagan (D-NC), Mark Begich (D-AK), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), and Mark Pryor (D-AR) are trying to trick gun owners into supporting them in their upcoming tough races for reelection in pro-gun states. 

At the core of their slimy scheme is a do-nothing bill being pushed as the Sportsmen’s Act (S. 2363).  North Carolina’s Kay Hagan, who voted FOR the universal gun registry bill, is the chief sponsor. 

Other chief cosponsors are Mary Landrieu (who also voted for universal gun registration) and Mark Begich and Mark Pryor (who, according to Harry Reid’s staff, would have cast the deciding votes for that universal gun registry bill, had their votes been needed).  It’s also cosponsored by anti-gun leader Joe Manchin (D-WV). 

The Sportsmen’s Act is, substantively, largely a “nothing-burger.”  People could hunt on federal lands — unless Obama didn’t want them to.  Dedicated funds (from the Pittman-Robertson tax) could be used for ranges — but don’t have to be, and probably wouldn’t be. 

Moreover, Section 107(b)(4)(B) of the bill says that the BLM or Forest Service can close down federal public lands that can be used for hunting and recreational purposes for a host of reasons, including “public safety.”  Anyone want to bet that these agencies won’t find reasons to do so?

But the bill’s not about substance.  It’s about reelecting its anti-gun sponsors — virtually all of them red-state Democrats who face tough reelection battles in pro-gun states.  This, incidentally, is the same bill that was used to reelect Montana’s Jon Tester (D).  And, although he pretended to be “pro-gun” before the election, after the election, Tester was the Second Amendment’s worst enemy.

The good news is this:  Senators Mike Lee (R-UT), Rand Paul (R-KY) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) are prepared to offer genuine pro-gun amendments to this bill — like defunding Operation Choke Point and more. 

But here’s the problem:  Anti-gun Senator Harry Reid will try to use a procedural tactic called an “amendment tree” to block Lee, Paul, and Cruz from offering any pro-gun amendments. 

These pro-gun Senators want to offer good amendments like concealed carry reciprocity, but that won’t be possible if Harry Reid blocks their ability to offer pro-gun amendments with an “amendment tree.”

And the reason is clear:  Genuine pro-gun amendments would put anti-gun senators like Hagan, Pryor, Landrieu, and Begich on the spot.  It would reveal that their sponsorship of this “nothing-burger” bill doesn’t mean that they are “pro-gun,” but rather that they are anti-gun frauds. 

But in order to retain Paul, Lee, and Cruz’ right to offer pro-gun amendments, Republicans will have to block Reid’s efforts to shut down their filibuster of the bill and the motion to proceed to it — until Reid commits to dismantle his “amendment tree” and allow them to offer their amendments. 

In other words, we need to say to Reid:  No pro-gun amendments = no fake bill.       

ACTION:  Urge your Senators to oppose Harry Reid’s cheat scheme in pushing the Sportsmen’s Act (S. 2363), which is nothing more than a do-nothing, reelection bill for Harry Reid’s cronies.  Tell your Senators to oppose the bill unless Reid allows pro-gun amendments to be offered.

 

The NRA isn’t listening and continues to push the so-called Fix NICS agenda in Wyoming!

June 24, 2014
Even though you have voiced your concerns about data sharing and said NO to the expansion of the federal background checks in Wyoming…

Even though the recent Judiciary committee heard you ‘loud and clear’ when they shut down the background check expansion legislation in May.

The NRA isn’t listening and continues to push the so-called Fix NICS agenda in Wyoming!

The 2014 NRA candidate survey is so telling of their real intentions:

The fact that this question is on their survey means that they will be pushing this agenda again — and if he’s re-elected, use their own NRA “A” rated Senator Fred Emerich, who BTW voted NO on pro-gun legislation SF-104 in 2011.

Because when it comes to the background check expansion scheme, Anti-Gun Senator Emerich is their boy!

You can bet he earns another “A” rating for it too.

This agenda to expand NICS is also being spearheaded by former NY Mayor Bloomberg’s Anti-Gun organization, touted as Fatal Gaps.

Sadly this is happening on the heels of Obama’s 11 signed Executive Orders to change — background checks, health-care privacy regulations and gun owner data sharing — into a keystroke gun registration system.

Obama’s executive order summary:
1. Require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system. (Share all data)
2. Address unnecessary legal barriers particularly relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, that may prevent states from making information available to the background check system. (Privacy)
3. Improve incentives for states to share information with the background check system. (Bribes to the states)
4. Propose rule-making to give law enforcement the ability to run a full background check on an individual before returning a seized gun. (Even on a  simple traffic stop)
5. Publish a letter from ATF to federally licensed gun dealers providing guidance on how to run background checks for private sellers. (Preparing for regulations on private sales)
6. Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes. (This information was once private, it will now go on your permanent record)
7. Release a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits them from reporting threats of violence to law enforcement authorities. (Doctor patient confidentiality gone)
8. Release a letter to state health officials clarifying the scope of mental health services that Medicaid plans must cover. (Details to record gun owners)
9. Finalize regulations clarifying essential health benefits and parity requirements within Obamacare exchanges. (More gun owner  regulations underwritten in the details)
10. Commit to finalizing mental health parity regulations. (etc.)
11. Launch a national dialogue on mental health. (etc.)

By contrast WyGO’s 2014 candidate survey asks these questions relating to Brady and private sales:

The NRA isn’t working for gun owners in Wyoming and instead is using their  $300 million to work for the wrong team!

And the NRA’s actions?

In 2011 when WyGO was on the ground pushing Constitutional Carry at the legislature, the NRA was completly absent from the fight.

In 2012 the NRA actually provided a draft to the Wyoming Security Commission expanding gun free zones in every county building in Wyoming.

In 2014 the NRA didn’t even make a peep on HB-119, legislation that would have repealed gun free zones in Wyoming.

Later in 2014 the NRA flew in field Rep. Dakota Moore to support background check expansion, while WyGO was expending an incredible amount of WyGO member resources in direct mail to kill this dangerous legislation.

The NRA’s record in wyoming shows they have put their money to work just helping Obama’s keystroke registration scheme!

Please contact Wayne LaPierre at (800) 672-3888  and tell him how you feel!

And if you haven’t done so please throw your financial support to Wyoming’s ONLY ‘boots on the ground’ gun rights organization in the state.

Wyoming Gun Owners

P.S. The NRA is working to promote Obama’s background expansion/Registration scheme.

The NRA 2014 candidate survey has revealed that they will continue to push their so-called FixNICS campaign using the money taken from their members, under the premise they will fight against gun control.

Please get involved today by financially supporting the only ‘boots on the ground’ gun rights organization in Wyoming — with a generous contribution of whatever you can afford.

Targeted by? You guessed it!

June 17, 2014

ssued following this month’s Las Vegas killings, a bulletin leaked from the New York State Intelligence Center has warned state law enforcement against a “recent spike in violence” targeting them, and cites a figure familiar to Gun Rights Examiner readers as a catalyst for inspiring those so inclined.

“Michael Brian Vanderboegh, a longtime militia member and founder of the III Percent Patriot Movement which was supported by Jerad and Amanda Miller, travelled to NYS at least once in 2013 to speak to the Liberty Oath Keepers meeting in Monticello, NY.,” the “official use only” bulletin marked “Not for public or media release” advises. “The III Percent Patriots are a militia group comprised primarily of gun rights extremists who believe in the need to use violence against the government to prevent what they believe to be an impending seizure of all private firearms.

“The name derives from ‘an obscure, and not particularly accurate, Revolutionary War “statistic” that claimed that only 3% of the American population during the Revolutionary War participated as combatants in the war,” it explains. “The Oath Keepers is an organization composed of current and former military and law enforcement personnel who take a pledge to ‘not obey unconstitutional orders such as orders to disarm the American people, to conduct warrantless searches, or to detain Americans as enemy combatants.’

“There have been multiple observed instances of overlapping membership in the Oath Keepers and the III Percent Patriots, and the Oath Keepers’ founder has spoken supportively of the III Percent Patriot Movement,” the section concludes.

Footnotes make it clear the “information” is being sourced from the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League, both “progressive” groups vehemently anti-gun, at least the privately-owned kind, and neither shy about portraying their ideological opponents as domestic terrorists. (SPLC’s attacks on Oath Keepers have been documented in this column for years.)

While some are claiming New York is behind the curve because the FBI has distanced itself from SPLC, that may be wishful thinking based on a website modification.

[A] public statement from the FBI and the agency’s own website indicate the removal may mean just that — removal from the site, not a diminishing of the relationship between the two organizations,” a HotAir article cautions. “[T]he spokesperson’s statement indicates the change may just be a public relations move, not a substantive shift in FBI policy.”

Regardless, Vanderboegh decimated the bulletin in his Flag Day Second Amendment Rally speech in Massachusetts on Saturday.

“The Millers are linked to the Bundys — except they’re not,” he said recapping the bulletin after dissecting it for the crowd. “The Millers were supporters of Vanderboegh, the guy who had them ejected from the Bundy security operation — except they weren’t.

“They embraced militia values — except they didn’t, the Three Percent movement is a militia — except it isn’t.” he continued. “And the Three Percent are paranoids for believing that the New York state cops are going to seize semi-auto weapons — except they are.

“Other than that, this is a totally accurate report, Vanderboegh observed. “Does that clear things up for you?

“It’s funny but it’s not,” he cautioned. “This report goes out to police everywhere. Many are going to accept it as gospel. And who do you think they’re going to be reporting? You, with the Oath Keepers tee shirt. You, with the Three Percent patch. You, with the Gadsden flag out in front of your house or the ‘Don’t tread on me’ sticker on your pickup truck. Because everyone now ‘knows’ because of sloppy propaganda like this piece of trash that the Gadsden flag equals Three Percent equals Oath Keeper equals domestic terrorist equals meth-head cop killer.”

That, of course, is the objective, and even clumsier propaganda has been seized on by groups that are desperate for attention and relevance, coming up with stupid slogans like “Let’s tread on them” accompanied by even more stupid graphics.

It’s part of a long-standing and not particularly successful attempt by the “progressives” to chill dissent by making gun owners fear to speak out lest they be tarred with the brush of extremist. Perversely, those who want them to feel that way have been known to come up with extremist advocacy positions like ‘Isn’t it time we started rounding up promoters of hate before they kill?” and “These town hall terrorists could be declared enemy combatants and bundled off to Bagram with the stroke of a pen. If ever there were a reason for suspending civil rights, this is it,” and “Send the guilty monsters directly to Guantanamo Bay for all eternity and let them rot in their own mental squalor.”

As Vanderboegh might say, it’s funny, because of the personal frustrated impotence of the defective cultists doing the demanding, but it’s not, because their voices influence weak minds and embolden politicians, and enable enforcers who then cynically justify terror tactics they’re increasingly confident in using.

“Law enforcement leaders from the Department of Justice, the FBI, the ATF, Chicago police and other regional agencies gathered for a show and tell … of what they believe can be a key tool to reducing gun violence and arresting people who use and sell illegal guns — a group they call ‘three percenters’,” WGN reported.

“The core mission of the Crime Gun Center is to identify these shooters, or these ‘three percenters,’ and the traffickers that sell them guns and get them off our streets,” ATF Special Agent in Charge Carl Vasilko explained.

That’s what ATF has decided to call violent criminals who use guns? Does anyone think the adoption of that name is just a coincidence, coming from the machine Vanderboegh embarrassed with his groundbreaking Operation Fast and Furious revelations and efforts? And curiously, although not surprisingly, its being directed by agents of an administration that is more than happy to befriend extremist “percenters” it approves of.

The Supreme Court on Crack!

June 16, 2014

Once again the Supreme Court has issued a ruling so bizarre that one must think that they are on drugs… But, this is the very same court that ruled ex post facto law does not violate the Constitution or Bill of Rights.

The Straw Purchase Law was created to stop people from supplying weapons to felons and criminal cartels, period.

How to defeat yourselves in one hundred easy ways: Infighting in the pro freedom and liberty community.

June 15, 2014

Some things never change in this world, and dominance seems to be one of them. It’s the old elementary school thing really. At least a variation of it. That said, I am guilty as charged when it comes to jumping all over actions that I see as traitorous to the cause.

After all, I was among the first to call out The National Rifle Association for doing, among other things; Supporting The Gun Control Act of 1968. Supporting the Lautenberg Domestic Violence Act, and it’s lifetime ban on firearms possession and ownership for less than felony convictions. Both of these have direct impacts upon the freedom and liberty of all Americans, even if you are not a firearm enthusiast. Ex Post Facto Law..? King James would be proud to be sure. King George would also be quite pleased at restricting our ability to say no to him without losing our heads in the process. An assault on any part or portion of the Bill of Rights, is an assault on the entire body of it. What follows is from one of the most well thought out writers on the internet. Think about it folks, and by folks I do mean the NRA, SAF, NAGR, and so on.

Maybe we (the gun community as a whole) are victims of our own success. In the last several years we have survived a Democratic controlled Congress along with one of the most liberal presidents in history, and successfully defeated the first real anti-gun legislation we’ve seen at the federal level in 20 years. In the last 12 months we’ve seen sheriffs across the nation come out in support of gun rights and we’ve seen two state lawmakers recalled and a third resign over their stance on gun rights in Colorado.

Sure, there have been some setbacks in some states such as Connecticut and New York, but all in all, we’ve moved forward as a community in the last couple of years. It also seems we’ve become a community divided during that time. Over the last 2-3 months I’ve noticed a severe amount of infighting in the gun community. Now, when I say “gun community,” I’m talking about gun owners in general, gun bloggers, print publications, gun companies, accessory companies, trainers, activists, gun rights groups and grassroots organizers (sorry for whoever I just forgot).

Now I know that gun manufacturers are competing against each other and those of us in the publishing world are technically competing against each other as well. However, I think that we’re all forgetting (perhaps due to the complacency from the positive issues mentioned above), that we’re all on the same side of a lifestyle that is constantly under attack by people who would love nothing more than to take it ALL away.

Recently, I’ve seen several disturbing things (and I’m not going to name names here, which would only add fuel to several fires) including a prominent gun blog call out a print publication over a product review of a controversial new pistol, only to have another prominent gun blog call out the first gun for their calling out of the print publication… does that even make sense? Sure, all of that controversy probably means more pageviews and readers all around, but what damage does it do to the community? You force readers to choose a side and show the anti-gun community a weakness.

I’ve seen the leader of a large, national organization who hasn’t been on the scene very long bash the leader of a well established gun rights group who has literally done more for gun rights in the courts than any other organization. That second organization then had to publicly respond to the comments from the first organization. How does that look to outsiders? Instead of questioning each other’s commitment to the cause how about having a civil discussion on the phone or via email about the differences in your organization’s strategies and thought process?

TRUE COLORS; THE NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION AGAIN STABS MEMBERS IN THE BACK!

May 15, 2014
Dear Friend,
Wow! What a way to start a week, snow clogging up I-80 delaying travel to the interim committee meeting in Rawlins.Just getting to the pavement from my snow drift covered gravel road became an obstacle.

Fortunately by 4:30 pm Monday I was on the road to Rawlins for the meeting that was rescheduled for Tuesday.

And here’s the Good News. Yesterday you WON in a serious gun control skirmish…

As opposition was building in the committee room — I watched as the Interim Committee Chairman tabled Enhanced Background Checks, otherwise called FixNICS.

This ONLY happened because of one simple reason.

Without informed gun owners like you, the lobbyists and lawmakers that push for gun control may have ‘had their way’ in Rawlins.

Of course this dangerous legislation originally introduced by Senator Fred Emerich — may likely re-emerge during the next general session.

Here’s what happened in Rawlins Tuesday May 13th:

As I have been telling you all along, the Newtown Connecticut based National Sports Shooting Foundation (NSSF) is pushing Michael Bloomberg’s Gun Registration scheme here in Wyoming.

Dave Picard, a Wyoming based “lobbyist for hire”, testified on how badly this legislation was needed — and that with it the National Instant Check System (NICS) & previous federal gun control acts could be finally fixed.

And guess who was ‘flown in’ special for the gun control party?


NRA Lobbyist Dakota Moore (closest) and NSSF Lobbyist Dave Picard
in Rawlins WY testifying in favor of background check expansion

No other than the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) own lobbyist, Dakota Moore.

But the NRA was not here in Wyoming to testify against gun control.

Instead just the opposite — the NRA sat at the table with Dave Picard — and in FULL SUPPORT of “Enhancing Background Checks”.

The bill draft in question is 2014-SF111, which in the NSSF’s own words, “SF111 was our FixNICS legislation”.

I truly hate being the bearer of such bad news, but I have witnessed firsthand on several occasions — just how the NRA underhandedly works with Gun-Grabbers.

This is how the NRA rolls:

Let’s start with Wyoming Republican Sen. Fred Emerich who was handed an “A Rating” by the NRA in 2010. Please note that during the same time frame, Emerich REFUSED to answer WyGO’s gun rights survey.

Then after being elected and safely in the seat of power and during Senator Emerich’s first term in 2011, he voted against WyGO’s flagship legislation restoring the rights of Wyomingites to carry concealed without a permit.

During the entire 2011 legislative session Senator Emerich’s intentions were clear — whether as a committee member, or on the floor, Emerich voted with the gun control crowd every single time.

The fact that the NRA is now pushing a bill with Gun Grabber Fred Emerich is sooooo telling.

As I have stated in previous alerts – the NSSF’s ‘FixNIX.org’ website is strikingly similar to Bloomberg’s ‘Everytown.org’ gun-control website.

NSSF – FixNICS vs. Bloomberg’s Fatal Gaps


The hard truth is this: The NRA is aligned with Bloomberg’s push for gun control!

Read the NRA’s letter here

Read the NSSF’s letter here

Like Wolves in Sheep’s clothing — these dangerous NRA alliances have dominated the field in so many states. See the latest NSSF report here

And there’s this: A Capitol insider tells me that Dakota Moore, the NRA’s lobbyist stated the following- “we [the NRA] don’t work the same way that they [WyGO} do.”

Well, at least there’s one thing the NRA lobbyist gets right…

From the very founding of WyGO I have held that as Wyoming’s premier gun rights organization, we will NOT compromise, we will NOT accept breadcrumbs, and we will NOT get on our knees and kiss anyone’s boots.

Please review the above links provided so you too can help inform others about the NRA’s actions — while raising millions of dollars on the premise of defending gun rights, the NRA is pushing Bloomberg’s gun registration scheme.

And if you haven’t done so already, please consider contributing as generously as you can, to Wyoming Gun Owner, maybe $150, $75, $50, $25 or whatever you can afford, even just $5 — so WyGO can continue on its No-Compromise mission to protect and defend the Right to Keep and Bear Arms in Wyoming.

Once again congratulations to you, and let me say this, I am proud to stand with the many No-Compromise members and supporters of WyGO.

P.S. Bloomberg’s lapdogs — the Newtown Connecticut based — National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) along with the NRA were caught red handed pushing a gun registration scheme here in Wyoming.

No gun control petition: WYOMING Say no to Bloomberg as well as his minions!

April 28, 2014

Are your gun rights safe from lawmakers in Cheyenne?

The answer is NO.

Billionaire playboy ex-New York City Michael Bloomberg has set his sights on passing gun control in state legislatures across the country.

Bloomberg’s sinister group, Mayors Against Guns recently targeting Colorado and New Mexico, and I’m afraid Wyoming is next.

I can tell you with 100% certainty that this is the latest anti-gun scheme the gun-grabbers will push in Wyoming — because it’s already happening.

The Wyoming Legislature’s Interim Judiciary Committee could meet in as early as four weeks and the gun control crowd in the Capitol placed “background check reform” as a top priority!

See the gun control measure on the books for yourself here:
http://legisweb.state.wy.us/InterimCommittee/2014/01Topics.htm

And this was all Bloomberg’s staff and his deep pockets needed to start working to RAM through so-called “universal” or “expanded background checks in Wyoming.”

Don’t be fooled by the gun-grabbers’ LIES.  This is nothing more than GUN REGISTRATION, plain and simple.

With this issue coming up before a state Legislative Committee, and Bloomberg’s Executive Director for Mayors Against Illegal Guns, Mark Glaze, telling reporters that passing new anti-gun restrictions here in Wyoming “would not be that hard!”

This is an all-out EMERGENCY.

Will you stand up and help defeat Bloomberg and his cronies before it’s too late?

If so, I hope you’ll take a moment to sign this petition below to your state lawmakers right away.

 

To Liberty,

SIGN PETITION BELOW

 

WHEREAS:

President Obama, ex-New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and their gun control allies are trying to impose their radical anti-gun agenda on residents of Wyoming; and,

WHEREAS:

By definition, criminals don’t obey laws and new gun control laws make it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves and their families; and,

WHEREAS:

The right to keep-and-bear arms is protected by the Constitution of the State of Wyoming and the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which clearly states “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”; and,

WHEREAS:

Gun rights supporters, like myself, strongly oppose gun control and will be paying close attention to all gubernatorial actions on new anti-gun schemes as well as any State Legislator who votes for them.

THEREFORE:

Therefore, as a citizen of Wyoming, I URGE you to oppose, and vote against or veto all anti-gun legislation, including any bill that expands background checks or “cracks down” on gun shows.

SAY NO too Bloombergs Wyoming schemes!

April 28, 2014

It’s been a unusually busy time of year.

In fact, since I’ve been in this fight, this is the very first time it’s been so hectic on the flip side of the short 20 day legislative session.

And regrettably, we have our work cut out for us.

The truth is some folks believe that here in Wyoming, we remain sheltered from big city gun grabbers like billionaire Michael Bloomberg.

And it may be for this very reason that the gun control crowd has launched an all out assault in Wyoming.

Of course this is why we’ve been working so hard to reach hundreds of gun owners.

Please know that fruits of generous donors like you, is that, literally hundreds of Wyoming residents are receiving a “call to action” delivered to their postal mail box.

This action alert by WyGO is being mailed to inform them about — state “Republican” leadership pushing enhanced background checks — into an interim committee meeting in Rawlins WY in just a couple of weeks.

Of course we know the lay of the land, because this underhanded “play” has surfaced in several state legislatures.

And wouldn’t you know, much of it has been traced back to Bloomberg, along with his well funded gun control cronies all across the country.

Their plan is to, slip-in “King Henry the 8th” style laws, which will give carte blanche authority to Wyoming’s top law enforcement agency, who will then be able to share gun owner data to federal agencies.

Dangerously, once something like this goes into place, then the D.C. gun grabbers only need to pass a simple bill to tie it all together.

I hate to think what someone like Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder, would do with a “secret list” of gun owners.

It gets worse. Even if a seemingly innocuous bill makes it out of committee in Rawlins, the anti-gun politicians in Cheyenne will sneak-in freedom robbing amendments into the bill at the next general session in 2015.

So here’s how the dirty scheme could play out:

*** Get the ‘ball’ rolling now, by pushing a bill draft that will remain hidden from public eyes;

*** Then, squeak by in the upcoming elections;

*** And for the kill, push the gun control envelope during the upcoming general session.

This is why this must be stopped all together!

And just who quietly placed this Universal Background Check scheme into the upcoming interim committee?

No other than the shadow government agency in Cheyenne called the “Management Council” — led by Republican leadership, Speaker of the House Tom Lubnau, and President of the Senate Tony Ross.

This is really an all-out FIGHT!

So please forward this email to every freedom loving friend and family member in Wyoming immediately!

Also urge them to sign up for our email alerts, so they too can get all the details about this attack on gun owners, as soon as it’s available.

Over the next coming days I will continue to coordinate WyGO’s aggressive postal-mailings — mostly to folks that may have never heard of our organization.

Bloomberg’s promise to spend $50 Million on state legislatures is a somber reality, and though WyGO is currently mailing several hundred homes — the goal to reach 20,000 Second Amendment supporters in Wyoming is a costly endeavor.

Please consider becoming a outreach-sponsor by contributing $50, $25, or even just $5 to help cover the costs of the envelopes, paper and postage.

Without your generous support, I truly shudder to think about what you and I could be facing. We simply have to turn up the heat on the Wyoming Lawmakers like never before.

In addition to helping out with whatever you can afford, please pass this alert on to your Pro-Freedom friends and point them to our — “Stop Bloomberg in Wyoming Petition” — by clicking on the banner below.

Thank you in advance for your dedication to defending the Second Amendment in Wyoming.

    To Liberty,

Executive Director
Wyoming Gun Owners

P.S. With billionaire Michael Bloomberg now spending $50 million to push — state level gun control — that includes “enhanced background check” legislation — gun owners are now facing a serious assault by the politicians in Cheyenne.
