FROM THE LIBERTARIAN PARTY:
We worked with Rich Heller on the DC LP ballot access drive in 2004. He stepped in and paid us, and also personally petitioned with us, after the DC LP had no one else up to the task.
Last week, we had a great victory in the battle to protect liberty in this country. The United States Supreme Court handed down a decision in the case Heller v. District of Columbia, which established an individual right to gun ownership in America!
The Libertarian Party immediately issued a press release hailing this decision, which adds one more plate of armor to this fundamental right.
We also had another interest in the case, as we were the only political party to file a friend-of-the-court brief in support of Heller. In that brief, written by Libertarian Party presidential candidate Bob Barr, we stated that the Second Amendment was deserving of the same strict protections we give the First Amendment.
The Libertarian Party’s amicus brief, written by Libertarian Party presidential nominee Bob Barr, can be found
We just wanted to let you know that we are working tirelessly for liberty, and that we are the only political party to stand up for your rights when they are threatened.
Thank you all for your continual support, and we look forward to your vote in November!
