The right of the people to keep and bear arms is protected by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution; and
This inalienable right clearly includes the right to carry a handgun for self-defense; and
Requiring law-abiding citizens to beg for government permission before they can exercise their constitutional right to bear arms is a clear violation of that right; and
Real-life experience and extensive research clearly demonstrate that restricting the right to bear arms in self-defense only encourages violent crime;
I submit my pledge of support for "Constitutional Carry" and urge lawmakers in all 50 states to follow the examples in Vermont, Alaska, Arizona, Wyoming, Kansas, Maine, and Idaho by adopting "Constitutional Carry" legislation allowing law-abiding citizens to exercise their Second Amendment right to carry a firearm without government interference.
The National Association for Gun Rights will keep me informed of your actions.
