The Honorable [Congressman Name]
[Street Address of Office]
United States House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515
Dear [Congressman Name],
I am writing to urge you to support H.R. 3689 (sponsored by Congressman Jordan) and help move the Resolution out of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and to a general House vote. This Resolution, which would allow American citizens to legally exercise their 2nd Amendment Rights declared in the Constitution of the United States, is very important to the safety and security of everyone working and residing in the District of Columbia.
We believe that the 2nd Amendment and the inherent right of self-defense are part of the foundation this great nation is built upon. Every man and woman should have the ability to legally defend themselves and their families from violent attacks; this bill decriminalizes much of that in Washington D.C. Countless reports and studies have shown that by allowing lawful citizens to arm themselves, many lives are saved and crimes are prevented.
I ask you, Congressman [NAME], to make sure this bill moves beyond the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to a general House vote. As my Representative, I believe you can make sure this happens in a timely manner.
Thank you for your time and your service to our great country. Please continue to defend the rights and freedoms many Americans have fought so hard to secure.
