Get Involved and Stand up for Your Right-to-Carry in Wisconsin Today!

Get Involved and Stand up for Your Right-to-Carry in Wisconsin Today! Saturday, March 19, 2011 There is a great deal of misinformation, rumor and speculation associated with the ongoing effort to finally secure the same essential right for Wisconsinites exercised by the citizens of forty other states – the Right-to-Carry. In light of the fact that we have been so close so many times in the past, this anxiety and impatience is understandable. However, it is time to set the record straight and provide you with the latest information.

Your NRA has been working diligently with legislative leaders in an effort to set the stage for what has been a victory too long denied. This includes the drafting of complex legislation in order to ensure that it is perfected for introduction into the legislative process. At the same time, bill sponsors and lead advocates are being recruited. It is not possible to understate the importance of this work and it necessarily takes time.

As you all know, the events in Madison over the last many weeks have evolved into a story that has dominated news cycles nationwide. The result of the culminating vote has been an effort to recall a number of legislators who have been longtime supporters of your Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Many of you have heard rumors that the battle for your right to be able to defend yourselves and your families from violence will be delayed until the dust settles. Nothing could be further from the truth.

The new majority leaders in the Wisconsin Senate and Assembly are battle-tested veterans who have voted in support of our firearms freedoms time and time again. They understand that unnecessary delay in securing your rights is simply unacceptable. They know that thousands of good citizens have been violently victimized, unable to defend themselves, since anti-freedom legislators first used partisan ploys to block attempts to enact Right-to-Carry. Further delay means only more defenseless victims to add to the toll. They are committed to ending this injustice and will not falter.

Let there be no question. Time for talking is nearing its end. Action is imminent and each of you will be instrumental in the ultimate success. NRA members played a key role in the election of pro-freedom majorities in both houses of the state legislature last November. Now, the same energy that led to those successful elections must be channeled into legislative activism.

Be sure to talk to your family, friends and co-workers about the importance of Right-to-Carry. Educate them and have them commit to the cause. Call NRA Grassroots at 1-800-392-8683 and sign-up as a volunteer who will help motivate others to contact legislators and attend hearings once legislation is introduced.
