Second Amendment Rights

A letter about the Second Amendment:

I’ve received a flood of phone calls and emails from the concerned friends and citizens of District 4. Recently a postcard labeling me “anti-gun” was circulated. I have always been and shall remain a man who is accessible to the people that I am proud to serve. It is with a heavy heart that I must respond to the blatant lies and trickery that was used to deceive you, the residents of District 4, into believing I am anti-gun. This is absolutely untrue.

Concerned, I, along with numerous District 4 residents, researched the origin of the group behind the postcards. I went directly to the most respected organization fighting for second amendment rights, the National Rifle Association (NRA). Kris Koenen, an NRA employee who researches and helps assign letter grades to legislators based on their voting accountability said, “this organization responsible for the mailing has NO affiliation with the NRA”. He also shared opinions that the group is “3 guys in a woodshed in Colorado, nothing like the NRA”. Closing with “Representative Rausch you have an A- rating with the NRA.”

I am an avid South Dakota hunter, have my concealment permit and am a proud NRA member. I will continue protecting the 2nd amendment for District 4.
