WY Lawmaker Tells Anti Gun Resident ‘By All Means, Leave’ If They Don’t Like State’s Gun Laws
A lawmaker in WY delivered a blunt response to an anti-gun woman who wrote to him expressing outrage over proposed expansion of gun rights in the state.
The woman and her husband had just moved to Wyoming and were, apparently, appalled to learn that WY enjoys a strong gun culture (as well as the 5th best murder rate in the country and 4th best overall violent crime rate).
“Ample evidence has shown that schools and guns do not mix, and in particular, guns in the hands of amateurs/non-professionals is extremely dangerous, especially in any highly-charged situation,” the concerned woman wrote. “To expose our children to greater risk in their schools by encouraging more guns on campuses is something that we cannot allow. I know of other new-to-Wyoming families in similar contemplation. Your choices matter. It would be sad to see an exodus of educated, childrearing age adults from Wyoming as a result of poor lawmaking,” she wrote.
State rep Hans Hunt had a very blunt response for her, “I’ll be blunt,” he wrote back. “If you don’t like the political atmosphere of Wyoming, then by all means, leave. We, who have been here a very long time (I am proudly 4th generation) are quite proud of our independent heritage.”
I have another blunt answer for Mrs. Anti-gun, “I hear CA, NY and NJ are nice. They have very strict gun laws, and I’m sure the gangs there will be nice as long as you wear the right colors.”
