Thread: Letter/email campaign to your Senators

  1. Letter/email campaign to your Senators

    I have sent emails to both my local State representatives making the case for constitutional carry. Everyone that wants a non-permit required right to carry firearms must send your state representatives a letter, email or phone call to let them know your choice. There are several groups lobbying to make licensing and mandatory training an expensive reality. These are groups who's intent is to cash in on the inevitable quest for concealed carry. There is little doubt that Wisconsin will be the 49th state to allow concealed carry very soon. If you don't want to be forced to spend a lot of money for a right you are already guaranteed by our constitution you better make your will known. Otherwise you will be forced to accept what every our elected officials decide to give us, and its not going to be cheap. Here is a copy of the letter I sent. Mz Krusick is a Democrat and anti-gun. Feel free to use it for your own, or change it as you like. What ever you do just make sure you send something.

    Dear Senator Krusick;

    I am writing to you regarding my right of self protection, the second amendment of the United States and our own state Constitution. The right to keep and bear arms was so important to our forefathers they chose to make it second only to the right to our freedom of speech. The right to keep and bear arms has been recently affirmed by the Supreme Court of the United States as a guaranteed right. For many years government has been restricting this right more and more, making it nearly impossible for the average citizen to exercise this guaranteed right. It is my understanding that the Wisconsin Senate members are contemplating a concealed carry permit system for Wisconsin that would require special licensing and mandatory training. I do not agree with this action as no other right guaranteed by our Constitution requires any type of license or training. Currently we are legally able to carry firearms openly with out a license, registration or any mandated training, so to make it a requirement now would be against our own Constitution and a reversal of rights we already have. Making these requirements degrades the right to a privilege. The right of self defense should never become a privilege. I believe the best position for Wisconsin to take would be constitutional carry, where the constitution is the only documentation needed to exercise our guaranteed right to keep and bear arms. If a citizen is legally able to purchase a firearm, that person should be able to carry where ever and how ever he or she feels is necessary.

    When criminals have greater rights than victims, there is a serious problem. A problem Wisconsin currently has. Wisconsin needs to enact a castle doctrine so the citizens of this state can defend themselves from violent criminals and not fear reprisal or a civil suit. The right of self protection is not limited to the household, and neither should our rights. I should have the right to protect myself where ever I may legally be. Feel good laws like the gun free school zone do nothing to prevent criminals from carrying guns, but only restrict the honest law abiding citizens. I should be able to walk out of my yard in my own neighborhood armed with out risk of arrest and a felony charge just because there is a school within a quarter mile from my home. Car jacking and kidnapping are real threats in todays world, we deserve the right to protect ourselves when driving also. Laws that prevent concealed carry and restrictive transportation laws were put into place to protect the police, but left the citizens they are sworn to protect at risk and defenseless. I would hope as a representative of the people of Wisconsin it would be your intent to protect your constituents and their rights.

    In closing, I would ask you to look toward states such as Vermont , Arizona and Alaska that currently have constitutional carry in place, and states like Utah and Texas that are poised to approve it this year. The right to keep and bear arms must be protected as our forefathers intended, not as our elected bureaucrats choose to allow. It is equally important that we enact laws to reverse the trend of granting greater rights to criminals than the victims they prey upon. Wisconsin should repeal the Constitutionally illegal gun free school zone and apply pressure to the federal government to repeal the law completely. Criminals will not obey these laws, and it is foolish to expect them to. Finally Wisconsin need to eliminate the overly restrictive transportation laws, so law abiding citizens may be able to protect themselves. The right to protect oneself, family or property where ever that person may be should never be a question, but upheld as the right it really is.
