Lummis Fights Shipping Policies Attempting to Restrict Second Amendment Rights of Wyoming Gun Owners

July 28, 2023

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) joined U.S. Senator Mike Crapo (R-ID) in sending a letter to major shipping companies to question their policies that prevent the transport of some legal firearms and ammunition. The letter raised concerns that the Second Amendment rights of the people of Wyoming are being infringed upon by shipping companies and asked if the companies had worked with radical gun control organizations to craft the restrictive policies. 

“The Right to Bear Arms comes straight from the Constitution and it is not for companies to take away,” said Senator Lummis. “I am especially concerned about the influence of left-wing political activists attempting to circumvent our legal system to achieve their goals. Wyoming gun owners exercising their rights should not be discriminated against or refused service.”
