It has been announced that Governor Northam plans on introducing new gun control legislation in the next session. I am sending you this letter to inform you that I, a citizen of the Commonwealth of Virginia as well as a citizen in your district, am against this.
It has been proven time and time again that gun control does not work. It does not stop crime or keep anyone safe. Maryland recently adopted the “red flag“ law and an innocent man lost his life as a result. I am not against preventing crime, but restricting the rights of the people in the hopes of providing safety is not the way to achieve those highly sought after goals.
Political alliances aside, we are a constitutional republic and we all need to respect that. I ask that you help preserve our rights and the constitution of both the Nation and our beloved Commonwealth. I implore you to vote against the Governor’s proposed laws on behalf of the commonwealth, the constitution and myself.
