Dear Fellow Patriot,
Fingerprint databases. Statist licensing schemes. Hefty fees.
The never-ending bureaucratic application and reapplication process. Plastic-coated permission slips.
Sometimes it seems the roadblocks and regulations anti-gun activists and their political allies have thrown up to discourage law-abiding South Dakotans from carrying a concealed firearm are endless.
Well, guess what! They meant it that way.
The gun grabbers know good and well that criminals don’t ask for permission to legally carry a firearm!
Their overbearing and unconstitutional “regulations” and “requirements” are meant to do nothing more than undermine the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens just like you.
I don't know about you, but I think it’s time SDGO Second Amendment supporters said, “Enough is enough!”
Please take a moment to sign this petition to your state lawmakers right away.
|Whereas:||The Right of the People to keep and bear arms is protected both by the U.S. Constitution and by the Constitution of the State of South Dakota; and|
|Whereas:||This unalienable right clearly includes the right to carry a handgun for self-defense; and|
|Whereas:||Requiring law-abiding citizens to ask government permission through the permit system before they can exercise their constitutional right to arms is a clear violation of that right; and|
|Whereas:||Real-life experience and extensive research both clearly demonstrate that restricting the right to bear arms in self-defense only encourages violent crime;|
|Therefore:||I respectfully urge you as my elected official to publicly support, co-sponsor, and vote for Constitutional Carry. South Dakota Gun Owners will keep me informed about your votes and actions.|
