Wyoming Concealed Carry Expansion Bill Hb-105 Passes, But Not Intact

Wyoming –(Ammoland.com)- First, the ugly truth…
Representatives Harshman, Paxton, Sommers and Goggles had a barrage of unwarranted claims against the bill.
In fact, the stunts pulled on the floor of the Wyoming house would certainly have made Obama and Feinstein very proud.
I’ll give you a partial rundown:
Bringing parliamentary poison to the bill, another offender, Representative Matt Greene brought language that had absolutely nothing to do with this bill – an amendment that allows concealed carry in the Capitol.
Representatives Paxton and Sommers argued that the local school officials should hold your right to self defense in their clutches. This is the usual position taken by anti-gun politicians — that unelected bureaucrats should have the final say on your God-given rights.
Harshman also argued that if we passed our bill, that now 18 year olds would be able to carry on school grounds.
??? No facts or figures by Harshman, just more anti-gun fear mongering…by using an obscure and unused “MAY ISSUE” section of law that lets a sheriff make a “recommendation” to the state agency that issues permits.
Under this statute there’s a process where a sheriff ONLY get’s to make a “recommendation” to the state agency that may issue a permit, emphasize MAY, then approve someone 18 to 20 years old.
BUT if there really was a problem with the bill…a simple amendment to prohibit 18 to 20 year olds would have solved it.
But then Harshman couldn’t have led the bill to slaughter now could he?
