A resolution sponsored by Rep. Gerald Gay (R-Casper) to amend the state constitution “to forbid courts from considering international law or Sharia law when deciding cases” is drawing some national attention from bloggers and political commentators. Among them, Sarah Posner of Religion Dispatches takes a look at Gay’s proposal, as well as some tongue-in-cheek videos Gay made showing himself shooting targets representing socialism and cap and trade legislation.

In this campaign video, he aims his Smith and Wesson at “cap and trade.”

“Yes, sir,” he concludes, “that’s how we deal with government intrusion into your lives.”

In another video, he shoots socialism; in this one he shoots stimulus and health care. In a video posted on his Facebook page, he proudly “blew the heck out of that big government” by blasting a replica of the Capitol building with his rifle.
