Byrd completed Bouchard's survey in 2008, when he was a first time candidate. But he never completed any subsequent surveys after he witnessed Bouchard's beliefs and tactics, he said.
Wyoming Gun Owners, a Cheyenne based organization that isn't afraid to call out Republicans by name for not supporting its views on gun rights, asked legislative candidates whether they will force recorded votes on gun issues, even if their party leadership or colleagues protest.
Lawmakers contacted by the Star Tribune, both Republicans and Democrats, did not want to speak on the record about the survey because of their ill feelings toward the organization's confrontational leader, Anthony Bouchard, who attacked a lawmaker's stance on gun rights by mocking the alleged size of his penis during a heated gun debate in 2013.
Among the questions:
If your comment was not approved, perhaps.
Mr. Bouchard, your commitment to utter, uncompromising absolutism is just what Wyoming needs. Compromise, by it very nature, is evil. We all know the bible says so. Thank you so much for this survey, the average Wyoming taxpayer needs to know that whomever they cast their Nike Cortez Qs Gold
"He's a whack a doodle," said Mens Nike Cortez Basic Leather Casual Shoes Rep. Jim Byrd, D Cheyenne, who doesn't remember if he received Bouchard's survey this year. If he did, he tossed it into the recycling, he said.
Will you support legislation to give law abiding citizens the right to carry their weapons in more places like government buildings, except courtrooms but including the Capitol, to protect themselves and loved ones from criminals?
YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.
"The only time you'll see my guns is when we take them to the range or when we go hunting," he said. "I don't feel Wyoming is that dangerous that I need to carry a sidearm."

Well said, these gun nuts won't be happy until we are all a bunch of paranoid basket cases who are afraid of our own shadows. For one thing, someone being allowed to carry a concealed weapon in school does not sound like a smart idea in my opinion. Even if the person carrying the gun is supposedly a "trusted" individual. These types of people are extremists, and if we simply look over at what's happening in the middle east, I think we can all see for ourselves how healthy it is to have extremists running the country. "He's trying to prove his group is more grass roots, more hard core and uncompromising than the NRA." A candidate who is "hard core" and "uncompromising" huh? No thanks, I want a candidate who is willing to look at both sides of the issue, and make decisions that allows some sort of compromise between all parties. An "uncompromising" candidate sounds like someone who would be more like a dictator to me. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum.

Bouchard, who is also running for the Wyoming Senate as a Republican, did not return a message from the Star Tribune.
The survey's introduction states that the questions will inform Wyomingites of candidates' general views on gun rights.
"A warning: We expect legislators to live up to their word," the introduction to the survey says.
of your original survey and only help to ensure that it can be a valuable tool to be used by the discerning voter.
At this time of year, candidates get inundated with surveys from interest groups, Byrd said.
"We will assume that a failure to answer any or all of the questions indicates an opposition to gun owners' rights, and will report it as such," an introduction letter attached to the 11 question survey states. "Caveats also indicate an unwillingness to follow WyGO's lead to protect citizens' rights."

Its vital that members of your organization be able to personally identify with their lawmakers, so I've added a few survey questions.

"They do not represent mainstream gun owners in the state of Wyoming," said Byrd, who said he is a gun owner. "Their views are way too radical. I grew up in Wyoming. Bouchard didn't. He has no reference points as to how you grow up in a society with a gun in the truck, a rifle in a rifle rack. And back then, they were all loaded."
Will you support legislation like Utah's, which simply allows Wyoming's most trusted citizens, people who have submitted to a background check, to carry concealed on Wyoming public school and college campuses?
Some of the interest groups aren't even based in Wyoming, he said.

Will you force tough, recorded votes on gun issues, despite the protests of leadership or colleagues within your own party?
Bouchard has previously said he moved to Wyoming from Fresno, California. Byrd believes Bouchard's insistence on carrying weapons in places such as public buildings is paranoid.
"They're looking to tap into a specific group of people that are a very small number of people here in Wyoming, if they're here at all," he said. "The only thing it serves is putting me out there and having some vulnerability."
"He's trying to out right the NRA," Byrd said. "He's trying to prove his group is more grass roots, more hard core and uncompromising than the Nike Classic Cortez Nylon Premium Qs Quilted
Lawmakers also claim he has misrepresented their stances on his group's Facebook page.
