I might have said it before but it bears repeating, but you shouldn’t have special permission to do something that you already have permission to do.
That’s what liberals are effectively doing when it comes to gun control. Just think about the following for a moment.
A few years ago, I made a cross country car trip for work. It wasn’t because my company wouldn’t pay for a plane ticket, hehe, but it was to test out a fleet of vehicles that they were going to be using as a fleet of company cars.
The higher-ups wanted to make sure that folks were going to be comfortable in the cars that we were going to be spending all day in were comfortable. So, in their infinite wisdom, they had me drive eight hours a day, from Pennsylvania to Florida and back. They wanted me to drive for eight or nine hours, stop, rest for the night and start over again until we got to our Florida office. Then I would do give them my report of how the ride was and how the company might like the cars.
I left my gun at home. Not that I thought I wouldn’t need it, but the fact that I was going to be passing through several different states irked me with the fact that every state for some reason has to have its own gun laws. Like what the hell? I have to somehow figure out the gun carry laws for every single state in the country so that if I happen to pass through one of them and get pulled over I don’t get blown away due to a legislational misunderstanding?
We need one set standard.
It was reported in January how the political buzz at the Capitol in Cheyenne was that pro-gun rock star Anthony Bouchard was going to file the ‘Second Amendment Preservation Act’ bill, or SAPA legislation.
Senator Anthony Bouchard kept his promise to keep fighting for gun owners and filed the bill, S.F. 81 on February 3rd.
On Friday, that SAPA legislation was assigned to the Senate Judiciary Committee. It also has accomplished another big feat in racking up a long list of cosponsors already!
These include Senators: Biteman, French, Hutchings, James, McKeown and Salazar. In the House, the bill has the following Congressmen and women as cosponsors: Baker, Bear, Burt, Fortner, Gray, Haroldson, Heiner, Laursen, Neiman, Ottman, Rodriguez-Williams, Wharff and Winter.
This is FANTASTIC news for gun owners in the state of Wyoming!
Not only has Senator Bouchard been a towering figure in the successful fight to pass Constitutional Carry in Wyoming, but he was instrumental in passing the best Stand Your Ground law in the nation for his state.
Just recently, Senator Bouchard announced that he’s going to primary Liz Cheney for Wyoming’s single Congressional seat in 2022. Cheney’s vote to impeach President Trump drew lots of anger from Wyoming voters who overwhelmingly voted to reelect the President by a 7 to 3 margin.
Gun owners in Wyoming haven’t forgotten that Liz Cheney also voted for a ‘red flag gun seizure’ law on our military personnel — just ten days before she voted to impeach President Trump.
Needless to say, Bouchard has shown himself to be leagues above the average Republican legislator — and not just in Wyoming!
SAPA nullifies federal gun control laws by requiring state law enforcement officers and state officials to only enforce state laws regarding firearms, ammo, and accessories — and only if that state law complies with the Second Amendment. This bill essentially makes the entire state of Wyoming into a second amendment sanctuary!
SAPA legislation is based on the well-established ‘anti-commandeering doctrine’ which states that the federal government may not simply ‘commandeer’ the state’s legislative authority and force them to submit to federal laws that conflict with state law.
