To: All members of the 114th United States Congress

I, the undersigned, a lover of liberty, an American patriot, and defender of the right to bear arms, do hereby implore you, our elected representatives, to protect our Second Amendment rights and stop efforts aimed at "universal background checks."

Recent incidents of heartbreaking gun violence have brought the issue of gun safety into the spotlight.  Putting further restrictions on law abiding citizen-gun owners is not the answer.

We have gun laws in place, we need to work hard to enforce existing laws, not create new laws that do nothing to deter criminals and madmen.

The Second Amendment was drafted to protect our First Amendment rights, and according to my First Amendment right to petition, I expect review of this request, and will hold you accountable for your response to it.

Finally, I do hereby pledge to stand with Patriot Voices and conservative patriots nationwide in support of the Second Amendment and against efforts to implement "universal background checks."

Please add your signature to protect our 2nd Amendment rights.

Please oppose by your vote all gun control/gun control related legislation, amendments and actions this includes expanded/universal background checks this also includes cloture votes and motions to proceed that would likely result in anti gun/anti gun related legislation proceeding (show votes mean nothing). Thomas Jefferson’s Legal Commonplace Book has a passage from Cesare Beccaria an eighteenth century criminologist that says " Laws that forbid the carrying of arms (I.E. gun free zones/gun control laws) tend to disarm only those neither determined nor inclined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage rather than prevent homicide." (Gun control laws tend only to restrict/deny the rights and freedoms of law abiding citizens, criminals/those intent on evil have no regard at all for gun control laws/gun free zones and restrictions.) Samuel Adams concerning our 2nd amendment “And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press, or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms…” Debates of the Massachusetts Convention of February 6, 1788; Debates and Proceedings in the Convention of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, 1788 (Pierce & Hale, eds., Boston, 1850) James Madison concerning our 2nd amendment "The Constitution preserves “the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation…(where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.” (James Madison of Virginia, The Federalist, No. 46) Compromise on this issue is unacceptable my family and friends will vote this single issue, it is that important. Please support by your vote all pro gun rights/ pro gun rights related legislation, amendments and actions and please co sponsor all pro gun rights/pro gun rights related legislation. Thank you respectfully William Liggett

Criminals and Terrorists don’t apply for gun permits. Laws regulating fire arm are only for law-abiding citizens.
