Thank you for Using Your Voice to Change Policy. Here is the text example of what you can write to each of your state representatives about the issue of Self-Defense / Guns:
Representative [ENTER YOUR STATE REPRESENTATIVE’S NAME HERE],
I am grateful for your service to [ENTER YOUR STATE HERE] and to our great nation. I am writing to you as a registered and active voter in your district to express my concern over the increasing political opposition to the constitutional right of gun ownership. As you well know, the Constitutional Drafters understood that unchecked power leads to tyranny. The intent of securing the right to bear arms in the Constitution was to provide a “check” on government power in order to preserve and defend our freedom. Now the Supreme Court seems prepared to further clarify that the Second Amendment includes our right to self-defense by owning firearms.
American citizens must have the ability to defend themselves and their families. As a voter in your district, I urge you to take meaningful action to address threats to the Second Amendment, crucial to our continuing ability to live as free people. Please respond to me in writing about all you are doing to protect our Second Amendment rights.
