Petition to my state Representative, my state Senator, and the Legislative Leadership of Florida
WHEREAS, The Right of the People to keep and bear arms is protected both by the U.S. Constitution; 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.
