You have to love when a Conservative politician stands their ground and tells a Liberal to go away. After Rev. Audette Fulbright wrote a letter to Representative Hans Hunt opposing concealed carry laws, he took into account that hes a 4th generation citizen of Wyoming, and that in America people deserve the freedom to carry a gun so he wrote back By all means, leave
Was it blunt? Yes. Would I apologize? No, Hunt said in an interview with the Star-Tribune. He said later: If I had to do it again, would I sit and think about how to phrase my words more carefully? Probably.
I hope you are taking care of yourself during this busy session. I know it is a challenging, compressed time.
I am writing to express my grave concern about House Bill 105. 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. to expose our children to greater risk in their schools by encouraging more guns on campuses is something that we cannot allow.
My husband and I moved to Wyoming not too long ago. We believed it was a good place to raise children. With the recent and reactive expansion of gun laws and the profoundly serious dangers of fracking, we find we are seriously reconsidering our decision, which is wrenching to all of us. However, the safety of our family must come first. We are waiting to see what the legislature does this session. 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.
Rev. Audette Fulbright
Ill be blunt. If you dont 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 dont expect a mass exodus from our state just because were standing up for our rights. As to your comments on fracking, I would point out that youre basing your statement on dangers that have not been scientifically founded or proved as of yet.
It offends me to no end when liberal out-of-staters such as yourself move into Wyoming, trying to get away from where they came from, and then pompously demand that Wyoming conform to their way of thinking. We are, and will continue to be, a state which stands a head above the rest in terms of economic security. Our ability to do that is, in large part, to our live and let live mentality when it comes to allowing economic development, and limiting government oversight. So, to conclude, if youre so worried about what our legislature is working on, then go back home.
Representative Hans Hunt
House District 02
Awesome, a man with man parts.
This would be a mistake.
Why we feel a need to tone down our honest opinions, especially as we are being proven correct in so many ways and on so many issues nearly every day, is a mystery to me.
Speaking the plain truth to liberals should be the rule rather than the exception.
Love it. And Rev. Its *rear* children. You rear children, you raise chickens.
Could you imagine a whole Congress with those kind of stones?
There is nothing 'reverend' about Unitarianism.
This is a good accurate illustrated website describing and explaining the Colt Model 1860 .44 Army percussion ignition revolver
I had a well used (and put away wet) “over-buffed/polished” antique (with Civll War Serial Numbers) Colt 1860 Army revolver that was a Reb capture (I bought “well” from a well-known reputable antique firearms dealer in Atlanta GA) and I then tinkered with it, replaced a badly worn original (circa 1862) cylinder pin, tuned the action, and tightened up the frame-barrel to the orginal Colt design specifications.
I later also bought an accurately made modern aftermarket walnut stock and brass fitted clone/replica of the Colt 1860 detachable shoulder stock.
It was a classy and authentic display piece - but it had to go with some of my other nice revolvers and Derringers some years ago.
However times change - my private “Gun Lobby” here is neither sparse or dusty.
The orginal Colt Army .44 and Navy .36 Shoulder Stocks are rare and mucho expensive and all appear to made of Unobtainium - most that you might see in a museum or at a gun dealers are modern made replicas that have been “aged” by experts - Let the prospective buyer beware. If any Colt percussion revolver Shoulder Stock looks to be an authentic original - Someone is blowing apple cider in your ear while they pick your pocket.
The original 1860 Colt Army had about the same deadly knockdown power of a modern Colt 1911A .45acp semi automatic pistol.
One shot and you were instantly flat on your butt and not about to get up and/or return fire.
900fps and a large heavy bullet.
FYI - Obama and his well-guarded wealthy Marxist buddies intend to make these fine historic antique firearms illegal for you to purchase, use, or own.
Nowhere in the Internets could I find a quote containing the missing word or words.
Your posting the same thing on multiple, unrelated threads sure looks like spam or blog pimping, but I'm not sure how.
“...is a puzzlement...”
- no blog
- no bs
You can bet that the "Reverend" Missus Audette's husband is lacking something.
