My letter to my state representative referencing my recent article:
Representative Gary Bies, State of
Honorable Representative Steven Kagen,
Congress United States
Honorable Senator Russ Feingold,
Congress United States
SUBJECT: Second Amendment and State Laws
I present to you an argument referencing a web link concerning the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the
. United States
The United States is made up of sovereign states that belong to a union of states; however ALL states must comply with the Constitution of the United States and its amendments, of which the first ten have come to be called the Bill of Rights.
The state of Wisconsin does not comply with the Constitution of the United States, as some of the other fifty states by prohibiting law-abiding citizens of sound mind not to carry a concealed or openly carried loaded firearm for purposes of defense of oneself, one's family, property or the general welfare of the public. As the article that I authored at the web link clearly demonstrates, individuals have the right to keep and bear arms and that right shall not be infringed.
All states of the
Union must comply and the US Supreme Court and state courts and legislators are not performing their duty on behalf of the citizens of the state of and the Wisconsin when they counter against the US Constitution. Governor Doyle and members of the United States Wisconsin legislator have violated those rights - and it is time past due that they rectify the travesty they have legislated upon the Second Amendment.
The Second Amendment is concise and quite clear on the matter, and it is time for elected officials of the government to listen to the will of the people. The majority has stated they wish the right and choice to carry firearms if they choose to do so or deem fit and any elected official that goes against the Second Amendment or any rights in the Constitution is not fit to fill the position they hold in the People's government.
Thank you for your time, and hope you will fervently address this matter to those in government of the great state of
. Your past record has shown that you are a man of character and respect constitutional law and the people for which you represent, so I ask that you enact whatever it takes to address this issue. Wisconsin
A copy of this electrically transmitted letter has been sent to US Representative Kagen and
Senator Feingold so they may also take action to ensure that the Constitution of the US is honored by ALL states of the United States Union. This letter will also be posted to the American Reformation Movement (ARM) and Jefferson’s Rebels websites for fellow citizens of , as well as citizens who live in states that do not honor the Bill of Rights and the US Constitution.
