But the laughter stopped when they discovered that I really meant it.
On Friday July 1st, 2011 the sound of celebration will be louder than any of the snickering ever was.
Because Wyoming residents will step back in time on the liberty dial. And they will now participate in what the state of Vermont has enjoyed since statehood in 1791.
"The right to carry a concealed firearm without asking: Big brother - may I?"
I want to thank all of you that were engaged in the battle as together we took a little spark and watched how it spread to such a large brush fire.
In this, I will be celebrating liberty with all of you.
