LETTER: Voice opposition to 'Fix the FOID' legislation

To the editor:

Do you want to kill innocent people? SB1966 “Fix the FOID” will kill innocent people that could otherwise protect themselves from criminals.

Cost of the FOID (Firearm Owner Identification card) will increase into the hundreds. Low-income, law-abiding citizens shouldn't have to decide whether they can keep the lights on or be permitted to use their God-given rights.

This bill makes absolutely no one safer, at all. The black market provides everything and anything to anyone anywhere. State Rep. Lance Yednock is a rural Democrat who has proposed pro-Second Amendment legislation this session, so I believe he might vote with the Second Amendment and not with his party.

If you care about the Second Amendment, you need to contact your representatives right now and tell them to OPPOSE SB1966! Thank you.

Sincerely,

Jenae Wise

Kinsman
