Wyoming-(Ammoland.com)- This is the rumor that’s swirling around Cheyenne as insiders report to us that Governor Mead is on the verge of doing the bidding of gun grabbers — by vetoing HB 137!

This is outrageous and I need your immediate action to help stop it.

As a reminder, HB137 simply removes the current ‘Gun Free Zone’ policies that ban concealed carry in our state capitol, county buildings, city halls and more for those citizens with a carry permit.

You know, the very places that taxpayers and law abiding gun owners like you and me pay to build and maintain!

This is vitally needed legislation, as we all know that mass shooters target these ‘gun free zones’ to carry out their violent attacks — knowing that you and I will be defenseless in these areas.

Now, after the bill passed the House and Senate, the anti-gunners are pouring the pressure on Governor Mead who is reportedly leaning against your gun rights and may veto this bill!

That’s why I need you to contact him right away and insist that he stand up for gun owners, not the well-financed anti-gun lobbyists that are whispering in his ear non-stop.

And make no mistake, carrying into these areas isn’t a novel idea that’s come out of nowhere. States across the country are moving to enact this legislation. The Iowa House, for example, voted just yesterday to allow for concealed carry in their State Capitol building. Missouri, last month, also moved to allow for permitted concealed carry in their State Capitol building. Of course, many states have had this provision in their state law for years!

But now we’re hearing that this bill is in danger of being vetoed right here in Wyoming by Governor Mead, so please act fast!

Please help us do that by contacting Governor Mead right away. You can:

Call his office at (307)777-7434.

Send him a message via Facebook.

Send him an email by clicking here.

Your message is very simple, and you can use the sample message provided below if you’d like to.

Dear Governor Mead,

Studies show that the overwhelming number of mass shootings occur in so-called “Gun Free Zones.”

While doing nothing to stop armed criminals bent on murder, these areas force me to disarm when going about my daily affairs and would leave me helpless in the event of a criminal attack.

Hundreds of Americans have died in these “Gun Free Zones” in the past few years as a result of these failed policies.

HB 137 was just passed by the legislature and it would lift the ban on carrying in many government buildings that are currently off-limits to gun owners here in Wyoming.

Please sign HB 137 into law right away, for the safety of all law-abiding citizens in Wyoming!

Signed: _____________________

Now is our chance to get this done!

But as we saw in the floor votes, we can’t trust a politician based on their political party affiliation as many of our ‘friends’ voted against this bill.

And don’t forget, many ‘pro-gun’ legislators also voted to kill Campus Carry earlier this session, too.

This isn’t a party issue, it’s a freedom issue.

So please make your voice heard by contacting the Governor right now!

And please help WyGo get the word out and mobilize more gun owners with a donation of $50, $25 or at least $10 today!
