Rep. Liz Cheney today voted in favor of gun control legislation, destroying any pretense that she stands up for the 2nd Amendment. Cheney voted with Democrats to erode the right to possess firearms.
Harriet Hageman, Republican candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in Wyoming, today released the following statement:
"Whatever Liz Cheney is doing with our only House seat, she certainly isn't using it to represent the views and values of the people of Wyoming. The lawful possession of firearms for hunting and self-defense is an integral part of our DNA in this state, and we don't want our constitutional rights negotiated away. We all agree that mental health is an important issue that needs to be addressed, but we should not limit the rights of law-abiding citizens. Red flag laws, for example, can be easily abused to deny legal gun ownership to responsible citizens, including even members of the military. I would most certainly have voted against this bill.
"Liz Cheney has been doing Nancy Pelosi's bidding on the illegitimate January 6th Committee for so long that she's now voting for their anti-2nd Amendment legislation. Cheney has abandoned any pretense of sticking up for the people of this state. When I am the next congresswoman from Wyoming, I will always fight for our constitutional rights, and I will always defend the 2nd Amendment."
