House Accepts Amendment For Gun Protection Attached to Bison Hunting Bill (UPDATED)

UPDATE:  Wyoming State House accepts Senate amendment.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming House has voted to accept a Senate amendment that shoehorned an appropriation of money to fight any possible federal gun ban into a bill originally intended to encourage bison hunting.

Rep. Keith Gingery, a Jackson Republican, is sponsoring the bison bill. It would lift the current restriction that limits hunters to one cow bison license in their lifetime.

The Senate on Tuesday added a $250,000 appropriation to the state Attorney General’s Office for possible legal action to protect gun rights. The Senate last week declined to hear a separate bill that sought to exempt Wyoming from any assault weapons ban because legislative leaders said a pro-gun organization had used rude lobbying tactics.

Gingery said he didn’t like the amendment but didn’t want to kill the bill.
