Great news out of Wyoming just moments ago, where Senator Anthony Bouchard’s S.B. 81, the Second Amendment Preservation Act or SAPA, was passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee by a vote of 5 to 0. The bill had no amendments to weaken it, but was approved to move to a full Senate floor vote as written.
Further, the bill is set for a full Senate floor vote tomorrow — likely in the morning! This bill was the last bill approved for the year, as just five minutes after it passed, the Senate said that no more bills would be considered for this year’s legislative session!
This Is The POWER Of Grassroots Gun Owners
Relentless pressure on legislators — even in the Cowboy state — is the only way to advance our gun rights. That’s the lesson to be learned from this for gun owners nationwide. Gun owners outside Wyoming will be interested to know that the state’s largest and most powerful gun rights group, Wyoming Gun Owners, were pounding on the Senate Chairwoman, Republican Tara Nethercott for refusing to bring the bill up for a committee vote.
This ad played on Wyoming Gun Owner’s Facebook and social media pages, but the group also ran it on some of the largest radio stations in the state, and even broadcast it on television.
Under the relentless pressure from gun owners, Nethercott and the other Republicans were forced to listen to gun owners! THIS is grassroots politics done right! We’ll keep our readers update on the floor vote tomorrow.
Now the real question is: why aren’t Republicans in EVERY state bringing this legislation up for a vote?
