That is what State Rep. Hans Hunt wrote in a letter to Audette Fulbright a newly transplanted resident from the state of Virginia. Mrs Fulbright had written a letter expressing he dis-approval to a recent Bill that would allow people with concealed carry permits to carry guns in public schools, colleges and sporting events.
“I’ll be blunt,” he wrote back. “If you don’t like the political atmosphere of Wyoming, then by all means, leave. We, who have been here a very long time (I am proudly 4th generation) are quite proud of our independent heritage.”
Here is a section of the letter that Rep Hans Hunt wrote(Love it):
It offends me to no end when liberal out-of-staters such as yourself move into Wyoming, trying to get away from where they came from, and then pompously demand that Wyoming conform to their way of thinking. We are, and will continue to be, a state which stands a head above the rest in terms of economic security. Our ability to do that is, in large part, to our “live and let live” mentality when it comes to allowing economic development, and limiting government oversight. So, to conclude, if you’re so worried about what our legislature is working on, then go back home.
This is the kind of straight talk we need from Representatives, regardless of their political persuasion.
