Hall of Shame

Hall of Shame Inductee: Senator John Barasso (R-WY)

Senator John Barasso has worked hard for his NRA “A” rating, so when it was time to vote on the Manchin-Toomey amendment that would have expanded background checks on firearms purchases, he sided with the NRA, even though only one in three Wyoming residents oppose expanding background checks.

He believes that current law is ineffective because it is not being enforced. “What makes us think they are going to enforce one that does more checks on more people?”  He voted “No” even though 55 percent of Wyomingites support extending background checks on Internet sales and gun show sales.

Barrasso was appointed to the Senate in June 2007 to replace the late Senator Crag L. Thomas. He won a special election in 2008 to serve out the remaining four years of Thomas’ term. He was re-elected to a full six-year term in 2012, winning 75.9 percent of the vote. He spent $7, 121,673 on his campaign.

The NRA contributed $17,349 to keep the A-rated senator in office, and for good reason. Barrasso voted against banning high-capacity magazines over 10 bullets in April. In 2009 he voted in favor of allowing firearms in checked baggage on Amtrak trains; voted yes for a national cross-state standard for concealed carry; voted in support of applying for concealed carry permits in all other states where legal; and in 2007 voted yes on prohibiting foreign and UN aid that would restrict U.S. gun ownership, and voted yes on banning registration and a trigger lock law in Washington, D.C.  He also pushed an amendment (S.649) that protects law-abiding gun owners from having their private gun ownership information released to the public.

Tell Barrasso you are disappointed that he cares more about his NRA rating than his does about the safety of his constituents. Tell him he is wrong for not supporting universal background checks to reduce gun violence in our country.
