What makes a "Wyoming person"?
« on: August 31, 2007, 10:21:13 AM »
Mark Spungin, President of the Wyoming State Shooting Association,
has an excellent column in the WSSA newsletter. 

The July-Sept 2007 column is especially good, and most relevant. 
His thesis:

Not all Wyoming residents are "Wyoming persons"...

and not all "Wyoming persons" are yet in Wyoming...

Mark moved to Wyoming from NY back in the early 1970s,
and is a true "Wyoming person."

WOW!  Well done Mark!

I only hope I can live up to those expectations. 

Thanks for the post Boston.

Very Good!!!  Maybe a print out sent to legisgators and city council type folks, etc. would help them think on this a little. Couldn't hurt!

This needs to be read by all.  And, re-read by those who read it the first time.

Having just re-read Molon Labe my wife has "tuned in" more to my commentary.  Best I figure, we are Wyoming people, just not moved yet.  What a pleasure to see this newsletter.  It reminds me of when I first contemplated having "intellectual peers" back during Kim DuToit's tenure, and the Book of Isaiah's "remnant."  God bless you all!

That is a very powerful description, and easily could apply to what is an American.

 I am still stuck in South Carolina. After reading the Free Wyoming website, and what it is to a Wyoming person, the more I agreed qith it and it agreed with me. Unfortuniatley now grand babies are coming into play and grandma does not want to move out of the area. I am trieing to conence her that the time is coming that our Country as we had known it is fast approaching the end. I am a retired veteran who served a total of twenty eight years.
 Even if I do not get to move to your Great State.  In my heart your State and want for Freedom from a tyranical Government is the same.
