"Castle Doctrine" and Concealed Carry Reform Legislation Needs Support in Wyoming Senate!

Friday, February 17, 2006

NRA supported legislation, House Bill 46, the “No Duty to Retreat/Castle Doctrine” measure sponsored by Representative Steve Watt (R-17), and House Bill 78, the Alaska-style concealed carry reform measure sponsored by Representative Becket Hinckley (R-41), needs your support to pass the Senate. 


Anti-gun legislators and the Brady Campaign have targeted these bills for defeat in the Senate.  Due to the short length of the Budget Session, it is vital that gun-owners contact their Senators, most notably Senate President Grant Larson (R-17) and Majority Floor Leader John Schiffer (R-22).  Both are instrumental in determining if these measures will receive the two-thirds vote needed to pass the Senate. 


Please contact all members of the Senate in support of HB 46 and HB 78.  You can call the Voter Hotline at (866) 996-8683.  (Cheyenne residents call (307) 777-8683), or e-mail your legislator via the Wyoming Legislative website at:
