Important Legislation for Wyoming's Hunters Needs Your Help!

Friday, February 2, 2007

 

Senate File 50, sponsored by State Senator Cale Case (R-25), is an NRA-supported measure that modifies laws pertaining to game violations and authorizes bow hunters to carry a hand gun for self-defense against predatory wildlife, passed the Senate by a vote of 28-1. 

The bill now heads to the House where it faces a contentious debate fueled by a handful of anti-gun bow hunters who feel that a firearm in the hands of a bow hunter would encourage poaching.  This bill seeks to punish the poacher, but at the same time permits bow hunters to carry a firearm for self-defense, which is currently restricted during archery season. 

It is vital that NRA members contact the members of the House Travel and Recreation Committee because it will be referred as early as next week. 

Please contact your State Representative at (307) 777-7852 and ask them to vote "YES" on Senate File 50 when it comes up for a vote.
