MCSM Letter To Governor Elect Bob Ehrlich
November 29, 2002
To Governor elect Mr. Robert Ehrlich;
To Lt. Governor elect Mr. Michael Steele;
8600 LaSalle Road
Baltimore, Md. 21286
I congratulate you on your impressive victory on November 5th. Not
only have we changed the party of political leadership in Maryland,
but I can be sure we have changed the moral philosophy of the
leadership, a change at least 8 years, if not 30+ years overdue.
I must congratulate you further on your courage to stand up to the
issue I hold dearest, my Constitutional civil rights as a firearm
owner. That right is the basis for my self defense and defense of my
home and community and country. I think I can speak for others whey
I say that I, as an individual, have and all ways will stand to
defend the Homeland. Homeland Defense is the duty of the
individuals, even more so than that of some overburdening government.
If terrorists or any other individual or group for that matter,
come to attack an individual or a congregation of citizens, what
better way to stop the attack than by an effective point defense at
the scene of the attack. We, the victims, should also be the
defenders, we are the first on the scene of an attack.
I have told you this to explain why I consider self defense, in all
its forms including Concealed Firearms, to be a rational and moral
stance. Who can say that I should not be allowed to defend myself?
That position is morally indefensible. If someone posits that he
should not use armed self defense, then I say to him, "I applaud your
convictions, but you may not impose on me your ideal, as I consider
it wrong". I do not intend to yield to so called "gun control" as a
control of my civil rights to Life and Liberty.
I apologize for being so long winded in this matter, but I wanted to
be sure you understood my personal strong convictions in this matter.
I and scores of thousands of other voters, through considerable
restraint, did not press this issue for the past half year, knowing
the political liability it held at a sensitive time. You experienced
that after your relatively mild statement of truth regarding
inspecting the efficiency and fairness of existing laws. We, firearm
owners in Maryland have much factual and personal information which
will be of value. We look forward to your visiting with us to learn
and understand our heritage and life style so that you may represent
true freedom in the future.
As always, voting Freedom First, I remain yours Truly,
Robert Culver, MCSM,
