State Rep. Jay West (R - Anderson)
For the last five years, liberal leadership in the House has killed a bill that would restore your gun rights by decriminalizing open-carry of a handgun and making a Concealed Weapons Permit (CWP) optional, not mandatory.
This year Jay's liberal leadership in the State House has pushed a weak "watered-down" bill (Open Carry with "Training").
Jay West thinks you need a permission slip from the government to exercise your God-given right to self-defense.
Some legislators have introduced amendments to make this weak "watered-down" bill stronger, including a permit-less carry amendment.
Some of your neighbors have pressured Jay West to vote for the permit-less carry amendment.
His response has been WEAK.
He told one of your neighbors he can't support permit-less carry because we have a lot of people moving here that have never seen a gun before.
Why should we care about what people from out-of-state think about our gun laws?
Sadly, Jay West wants to decide how you can defend yourself and your family in public.
He needs to hear from you right now.
Call or text him a simple message: "Do whatever it takes to amend the weak 'watered-down' gun bill to include permit-less carry this week. Do not delay! I don't care what people moving here think about our gun rights. I should never have to ask permission for a God-given right. Pass permit-less carry!"
