Cody Council agreed to remove ban.
Once again the gun control movement has reared its ugly head in Wyoming. But not where one would expect. The City of Cody being rich in gun history declares lawful gun owners a public nuisance!!!
We expect this kind of stupidity in California or New York, but not in Wyoming...Just another case of Politicians that tell you what rights you can and can’t have”.
The City of Cody is challenging the State Preemption, 6-8-401 is a section of statute limiting local municipalities from controlling your gun rights. It is there to stop a patchwork of laws from occuring within the borders of Wyoming. To see this statute click here
The bad actors (Mayor , City Council, City Attorney and the State Attorney General) claim that local government can control gun rights with W.S. 15-1-103 (a) (xviii) a statute pertaining to –“ prevention or suppression of riots, disturbances, disorderly assemblies or parades, or any other conduct which disturbs or jeopardizes public health, safety, peace, or morality, in any public or private place”.
Nice try, but this applies to activities that criminals regularly participate in! The fact is, merely being in possession of a firearm does not make one guilty of rioting, disturbances or bad conduct. In case the Cody officials can’t read – THIS IS AN UNRULY MOB CLAUSE! It was never intended to be used against lawful carry by law abiding citizens. PERIOD!
Interestingly Cody City Council President and recently elected Wyoming House Representative Sam Krone (Republican-Cody) joined in the shenanigans. Krone sought the opinion of the most liberal attorney in Wyoming, Freudenthal appointee Bruce Salzburg . Since it appears that Krone gets his lead from the liberal progressives, it may be an indication of just what kind of “Republican” Krone is.
Krone a Wyoming Attorney should be capable of the proper interpretation of Wyoming law as well as the constitution. Instead by his actions, Krone has proved beyond a reasonable doubt that he cannot truthfully take an oath to uphold the constitution. Need more proof? Krone is on the record for saying that Wyoming cannot fight Obamacare. Does this make his politics clear? Sounds like Krone is really a “hope and change “supporter.
As far as Attorney General Bruce Salzurg, this isn’t the first time he has attacked gun rights. In 2009 Salzburg issued an order removing reciprocity agreements with several states. Of course he allowed reciprocity with Massachusetts, a state that doesn’t allow reciprocity with any other state. Maybe this is because Massachusetts is Salzburg’s home state. How do you spell “Elitist”?
Of course Salzburg realized that he made a huge mistake after many gun owners called Freudenthal’s office, including out of state gun owners stating they would not visit Wyoming on vacation. Shortly after his intentions as a gun control advocate were exposed, Salzburg reversed his initial order. To read about this click here
The town of Cody should know better than being used as the pawns of the gun grabbers. Specifically they have accepted an “opinion” that a nuisance clause in the state preemption gives them the right to stop lawful carry in a publicly owned recreation center.
Again they are deeming lawful carry as a nuisance!!! This is how the gun grabbers get their hooks in the system. Chicago style gun control tactics here in Wyoming.
WyGO - Wyoming Gun Owners will be issuing a travel alert recommending that visitors to Wyoming bypass Cody and Park County altogether.
