The second week of the 2017 Wisconsin Legislative Session is in the books.
As you know, the Wisconsin Firearms Coalition’s main push this year is Constitutional Carry.
We are going to need a lot of help to do that — more on that below.
As a reminder, Constitutional Carry simply means that if you are legally allowed to own and purchase a firearm, you can carry that firearm, without permission from the government.
No more having to add your name to a government data base to defend your family.
No more paying fees to the government for the right to defend yourself.
After all, how many other Constitutional rights require you to get finger printed, tested, and submit to a background check?
And of course, Constitutional Carry is not just being pushed in Wisconsin. It is sweeping the nation.
Last year, 4 states passed Constitutional Carry: West Virginia, Mississippi, Idaho, and Missouri, and the year before that, Maine and Kansas — 11 states now enjoy it.
It’s time to make Wisconsin number 12!
We are going to need your help to make this happen.
We are already hearing that powerful members in the Assembly are extremely hesitant to pass this important piece of legislation, saying that it’s “too extreme.”
I don’t know about you, but I don’t find our Constitution ”too extreme” at all, and neither have the other 11 states who have passed it.
Please stand with us, and make your voice heard by signing the petition today for Constitutional Carry.
And of course, there has never been a better time than 2017 to make this happen.
We have the largest pro-gun majorities in the Senate and Assembly in years — as well as a Governor who has signed other pro-gun legislation into law.
If we are not going to do it now, then when?
But none of that is going stop the radical left, the liberal media, and Michael Bloomberg-funded groups from fighting tooth and nail to kill Constitutional Carry.
That’s why we are counting on you and your signed petition to demonstrate the grassroots support that this legislation enjoys.
Once you’re done, please consider chipping in $10 or $20 to help us fight for Wisconsin gun owners.
As a grassroots organization, we exist solely on the support of gun owners in Wisconsin.
You see, we aren’t run by some organization 1,000 miles away.
We don’t send a slick lobbyist to fly into Madison once in a while.
We are on the ground in Madison, in real time, fighting for gun rights in Wisconsin.
But we have to grow the size of our grassroots army. To help us do that, please consider chipping in $10 or $20 today.
Then, make sure to forward this email on to friends and family so they sign the petition as well.
Thank you for your activism in defense of the 2nd Amendment!
Wisconsin Firearms Coalition
P.S. Constitutional Carry is on the move here in Madison, as it is all across the county!
We will soon be unveiling this important legislation and urging you to contact your legislators.
For today, please sign your petition in support of Constitutional Carry law, here in Wisconsin!
And if you can, please chip in $10 or $20 today — to help us mobilize more gun owners to this fight.
