Greetings fellow gun enthuasiats:

I just checked your state anti-gun legislation list, and I must say it is quite long. The new thumbprint requirement for purchasing handgun ammo is especially disturbing. If any politicians tried to introduce something like that in our state legislature, they would, if lucky, only be tarred and feathered.

It is time for the millions of honest, legal, gun owners across America to cry out in one voice: "No more anti-gun laws, no more anti-ammo laws; quit trying to turn honest citizens into criminals; go out and catch (or deport) the bad guys.

On the 4th of July, there is a "tea party" scheduled to take place in front of the Wyoming capitol building. I suspect that many gun owners will be there, voicing their opinions. The gun owners in every state need to do the same thing, at the same time. A coordinated "attack" if you will. People will be carrying signs telling all politicians that they swore an oath to protect and defend the United States Constitution; specifically the 2nd amendment. We need to send them a message: The next time we march, it won't be signs that we will be carrying.

We have had a long standing battle in this State with those who would deprive us of our rights and freedoms. The problems are influenced from the liberal members of Legislature, LEO professional organizations, unions, Chiefs of Police, and Sheriff's.

We also need to "Tea Party" across the State, but it's not just "Gun Rights" that need our attention.

This State is horribly mis-managed fiscally, and cannot control itself from spending beyond its means of income produced through business and taxation. Now we are once again held hostage to higher taxes, and State fees to pay for their dereliction. In addition to our mess, we have a National fiscal disaster, and we of course have to pay for that as well.

I for one, call for a voter revolt to start with. I can't think of a better way to get the attention of those in our State legislature, or in D.C., than for ALL of them to loose their jobs. Naturally, I would like to keep people like Ron Paul, and a few others, but because people are so uninvolved, and uninformed politically, I don't see how we could keep them from being "babies in the bath water". However, we can send a very potent message, and mess with the Old boy network, by voting in independents where ever they are on the ticket, and eliminating Dem and Republican members.

We have a broke system, we have real power in our votes, and I doubt the independents would do worse than those we have now. In fact, I think they would do an exponentially better job.

^ I'm not sure the votes would be counted accurately if such were to be attempted. It is seriously possible that all kinds of measures would be taken to insure the status quo given how much power and money is tied up in keeping things the way they are.

^ Yes, that may be true. However, I know we cannot continue to do the same things, and expect different results. Suppose attempts were made, at some point and time, a whistle blower is going to bring the actions front and center, which will cause further public outrage.

In addition, the fact that such attempts might be planned, tells me we have their ear, and that is the point. Lets start the process of taking back our government, a revolts design is to put the parties, and politicians on notice, we can and will remove you.

You must mean like what we did to the Republicans which got the Democrats in there in the first place.

What we really need is a viable 3rd and/or 4th party to vote for. This two party system sucks.

...or have real conservatives/freedom lovers take over the Republican Party. The socialist democrat gun grabbers would love to split the vote to guarantee continual electoral victories.

From what I gather neither party's leadership is open access.

You've come to the right place. Calguns should be the template for 'community organizing'.....

It's been a long, long time since I felt like any of my "representatives" represent me, but then the same old type of people keep getting elected, which to me is a poor reflection on the population. The only halfway decent politician I can even remember was Pete Wilson. This state just keeps sinking to new lows. Too bad we can't just secede from the "red counties" (I live in one).

No, I mean replace all incumbent candidates, and replace them with third party candidates where they are on the ticket. The message is pretty simple, were sick and tired of the bull crap and that's why you lost your job. You have four years to make a difference, or will do it again.

We are so divided based on single issues, its no wonder we're getting played like a violin. They are all the same Republican and Democrat, and their entrenched political parties are self serving.

We have a chance to use our votes to send one simple message, start managing this country as you were voted. Why would anyone who is tired of the political game have a problem throwing out your district representative? Especially in light of the bailout and stimulus, which could have been done responsibly, without pork.

If you are happy with the way things are, we have nothing to discuss. However, if you are fed up with the status quo, I see we have three options at change.

1.Hope the Dem and Repubs will start to manage and give a damn. Not likely.
2.Put a viable third party into politics at the POTUS, congress and senate level.
3.Get together as one voice and throw the two party system into a tail spin, by voting the incumbent candidates out of office.

The third is far easier to accomplish than any of the other two options. I would remind everyone, just because we were able to put a Ron Paul in office, doesn't mean he could get much done without support in Congress or the Senate. We would need third party support in both to make lasting change possible.

Tea party like hell! I would like to see a neck tie party.
