Parkland survivors and other activists with the #MarchForOurLives movement made a pit stop on their road to change in Bismarck.
“We don’t want Bismarck to be the next Parkland,” activist David Hogg said. “We don’t want anywhere to be the next Parkland.”
Even though #MarchForOurLives made a stop at Standing Rock reservation on Wednesday on the day of the Fargo Rally where President Trump was speaking, students from the Standing Rock reservation accompanied David Hogg to Bismarck as well to take the stage and share stories about gun violence. Even though David Hogg’s primary message was about disarming the public and making the notion that guns are the issue, the message of this protest was more than just about guns.
Student panelists Liz Schneider, Katie Winbauer, Taylor Toso, Tokata Iron Eyes, Bria Smith, David Hogg and Matt Deitsch spoke to a crowd of about 90 people.
“We believe in the use of the second amendment to protect your family.” Hogg said. “We also believe the same way that we have a right to bear arms we as children have a right to live.”

The one hour and 45 minute discussion was basically a push for Democrat policies in regards to immigration, EPA, and voting. However, the one thing both sides could agree on is that the current Secretary of State Al Jaeger does NOT ensure that all ELIGIBLE voters can vote BUT his policies allow anyone, illegal or legal, who hold a driver’s license able to vote in all STATE elections. Basically, you don’t really have to be an American citizen to vote in state or local elections only federal ones which is a clarification
Gary Emineth of Bismarck is pushing to ensure is rectified in local North Dakota legislation. Though, the signs on the platform showed a message of anti-arms they also showed a message of Open Borders.
But the most troubling of all issues in this rally was that the people arriving from Standing Rock Reservation to protest against the Second Amendment were driven there in a government vehicles.
Why are my tax dollars providing transportation via a "G-Ride" for political protesters? This is a GSA vehicle bringing people to a city-owned venue to fight for gun control legislation. Feel free to report. Gsa.gov. search "vehicle misuse and reckless driving". Email email@example.com — the more reports the merrier!!!This was a "March for our lives" rally in the Bismarck Civic center. We held a Pro 2nd Amendment Rally outside on the "public" space. That's when this video was taken of those showing up for the "march" people.

Since the DAPL protest had to do with preservation of things overseen and directly included to DOI handling it was deemed within scope to use the government vehicle for such activities. But does the same apply to the #MarchForOurLives Rally?
“I don’t see why this license plate for Lake Oahe Group Home would be under a Department of Interior contract, those are usually HHS,” said Ulysses, the FSR that oversees government vehicle registrations for Lake Oahe Group Home.
When Big League Politics reached out to the Department of Interior, Angela Cooper, she directed us to her email.
“I don’t handle tribal agreements myself, they are delegated elsewhere but I don’t think foster homes or group homes fall under such a category,” she said
BLP did not receive a response tot the comment request sent via email.
BLP also reached out to Sens. John Hoeven and Heidi Heitkamp who recently promoted and advocated for more federal funds in forms of grants to be provided to the reservation in Fort Yates.
In contrast, Hoeven, a Republican, has been silent about defending the second amendment and seems in the recent months to be very aligned with the Democratic agenda as opposed to that of his party. He has received endorsements from the NRA in the past but his gun control stance since then has been wobbly.
Hoeven is a known RINO.
In Republican-Controlled Wyoming, A Gun Rights Group is Now being Forced to Reveal its Donors
Violation of privacy.
The Wyoming Secretary of State’s Office is cracking down on a pro-Second Amendment organization by forcing it to reveal its donors. This move was spurred by a campaign that Wyoming Gun Owners launched last summer in which it attacked a number of incumbent elected officials in races across the state.
In a letter that the office published on October 14, 2020 Wyoming Gun Owners allegedly did follow the state’s campaign finance law.
The organization pulled off a number victories by unseating incumbent lawmakers last summer and has released advertisement targeting various candidates in the elections on November 3, which includes Riverton Republican Ember Oakley and Democrat Britney Wallesch.
The pro-Second Amendment organization has been around Wyoming politics for some time and publicly disclosed that it is paying for advertisements. However, its lack of registry with the state as either a lobbying organization or a political action committee runs afoul of state guidelines.
“The Secretary of State’s Office has reviewed the advertisements paid for by WYGO and determined that they are clearly electioneering communications,” the letter stated. “As such, WYGO failed to comply with the requirements set forth in Wyo. Stat. § 22-25-106(h).”
It wasn’t until a few months ago that the group’s activities have not been reported within the state government. The Wyoming government cannot initiate the investigation on electioneering activity allegations unless someone files a formal complaint.
An initial complaint was first reported by the Riverton Ranger newspaper earlier this month. It did not gather any further steam because it was lacking in evidence to support the allegations. Subsequently, a second complaint with proper documentation was filed with the state not too long after, which prompted the Secretary of State to take action.
Wyoming Gun Owners now has until November 4 to disclose the names of its donors or be slapped with a $500 fine.
If the group refuses to follow the state’s order, the case will then be kicked to the Wyoming Attorney General, according to secretary of state spokesperson Monique Meese.
“Then we take their advice about what to do going forward,” she stated.
State Senator Anthony Bouchard founded Wyoming Gun Owners almost a decade ago. Nowadays, it is run by various members of the Dorr Family, who operate a network of pro-gun organizations pushing for pro-Second Amendment policies.
Aaron Dorr, Wyoming Gun Owners’ executive director, has had public disputes with elected officials such as Senate Vice President Ogden Driskill, who has repeatedly criticized the organization’s tactics during the 2020 election cycle.
The pro-gun organization bolstered its reputation by killing a firearm reporting bill in 2019 sponsored by former Campbell County Sheriff and current State Representative Bill Pownall. Wyoming Gun Owners ran ads supporting Bill Fortner, Pownall’s opponent. Throughout these ad blasts, Pownall was depicted as anti-gun. Fortner ended up winning in a landslide.
Such a case shows how even Republican governments will go out of their way to prop up incumbents and infringe on the privacy rights of organizations that wish to restore freedoms such as the Second Amendment. Just because politicians have an “R”s beside their name does not guarantee that they will protect individuals’ rights.
