Western States Emerging As Second Amendment Battlegrounds
by Dave Workman
Yesterday in Denver, Colorado lawmakers heard seven bills in separate House and Senate committees dealing with the state’s hastily-passed gun control measures in 2013, with predictably-split receptions along party lines, according to the Denver Post.
In neighboring Wyoming, legislators are considering a concealed carry reform measure that would allow concealed firearms to be carried in schools, bars and government meetings, plus the University of Wyoming campus in Laramie. The editorial board of the Wyoming Tribune Eagle doesn’t care for that at all, while the National Rifle Association is encouraging members to support the measure.
Second Amendment advocates are fighting to overturn Initiative 594 in Washington State. The 18-page gun control measure, passed by 59 percent of the people who voted in November, is the target of legislation and a federal lawsuit filed by the Second Amendment Foundation.
