Matt Mead on Gun Control

 

 


New initiative for public shooting ranges

We are now and shall always be a proud ag state. We have great wildlife in Wyoming. We have great respect for the Second Amendment. And when you combine all these assets together, it's no surprise that hunting, firearms and shooting sports are part of Wyoming's history and heritage. We want to keep these traditions and pass them on to future generations, and that we want to share an enjoyment of sporting life with others. With this in mind I announce a new initiative for public shooting ranges and shooting competitions.

The Wyoming firearms industry, an important component of manufacturing, continues to grow. Our world class companies manufacture handguns, precision rifles, silencers, optic, sights, and other firearm accessories. Take, for example, Magpul, recently selected by the United States Marines as the exclusive supplier of magazines for combat use. Isn't that incredible news for a Wyoming company to supply our US Marines?

Advocate for protection of Second Amendment rights

As Governor, I will be the strongest advocate for protection of Second Amendment rights. I love to hunt and fish. I'm proud owner for many years of a Wyoming lifetime small game, bird and fishing license. I strongly support gun rights, hunting, multiple-use on public lands, and efforts to limit federal control of guns.

Sunset the assault weapons ban, including my AR15

I will oppose federal efforts to infringe upon our Second Amendment rights. My collection of guns includes AR 15 models, .50 caliber, .22s, and many others. I do not want you or me to lose our right to own and use these guns. Therefore, I support the sunset of the assault weapons ban and reciprocity with other states for Wyoming's concealed carry laws. I will also direct my Attorney General to resist efforts to change new policy which allows guns to be carried in our national parks.
