Protecting 2nd Amendment Rights

Wyoming has a proud history of respecting and protecting our Second Amendment rights.    Unfortunately, instead of allowing Americans to defend themselves, anti-gun advocates have criminalized law-abiding citizens, even preventing victims of domestic abuse from acquiring a firearm to protect themselves. Liz believes we should do everything possible to keep weapons away from criminals and ensure laws are enforced but she will always fight against proposals that prevent citizens from having access to firearms or weapons they need to protect themselves. As a gun owner herself, she’s a proud co-sponsor of the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, which protects law-abiding gun owners and ensures their concealed carry licenses are recognized across state lines.

 

Liz has consistently been endorsed and supported by pro-gun advocates such as the NRA and the Shooting Sports Foundation and will continue to support gun owners from across the state.  She will always push back against “universal background checks”, “red flag laws” that do not respect due process, and “assault rifle” bans.   

 

What Liz Has Done:

Cosponsored HR. 38, the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, which ensures licenses to conceal carry are recognized across state lines.

Cosponsored HR. 877, Modernizing the Pittman-Robertson Fund for Tomorrow’s Needs Act, which updates the Pittman-Robertson wildlife conservation funds to support state and territorial wildlife agencies to allow some of these funds to be used towards the promotion of hunting and recreational shooting, hunter and recreational shooter recruitment.

Cosponsored HR. 95, which removes silencers from the definition of firearms for purposes of the National Firearms Act.

Opposed the Enhanced Background Checks Act and the Universal Background Checks Act this Congress, which criminalized law-abiding citizens who wish to transfer a firearm to a family member or friend. In addition, these bills would have prevented domestic abuse victims from acquiring a firearm to protect themselves, leaving them vulnerable to their abusers.
