Dear Rep. Nelson,

RE: Your Misunderstanding of...

"The right of the individual citizen to keep and bear arms shall not be impaired..."
--AZ Const., Article 2, Section 26

If the below words are in fact yours, consider the request below to be official.

"...from a safety J.D., Over the past 18 years every police officer that I asked said the same thing. i.e. If you have a gun in your car, and you are not permitted, it must be it the glove box at minimum and preferably in a holster. Or in the trunk. It must be out of your immediate reach. I've not had a problem with that to date."

John, may I please have a faxed copy of your sworn oath of office? Fax to (520) 522-8855

If that is too much trouble, please confirm that its text is as follows (taken off of the official AZ government website):


State of Arizona, County of ______________ I, ____________________ (type or print name) do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution and laws of the State of Arizona; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same, and defend them against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge the duties of the office of _______________________________ (name of office) ________________________ according to the best of my ability, so help me God (or so I do affirm). ______________________________________ (signature of officer or employee) [That would be YOU.]


Standing by for your response. To repeat:


Though I do not live in your district, some of our organization's members do -- they all have friends -- and your inability to understand the clear language of the constitution stresses me greatly.

Respectfully, and eager for your answer,

Angel Shamaya
Founder/Executive Director
(520) 522-8833

The writings of scholars who have written on the subject are virtually united on the point that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms, not simply the state national guards. PROFESSOR GLENN HARLAN REYNOLDS
