My name is Jonathan Wells, my family and I live in White Bluff, TN, and I am an Infantry Veteran of the TN Army National Guard.
I would like to offer my support of HB42 drafted by Rep. Joe Carr. I believe that the issue of safety is not about firearms or firearms laws, but about mental health and the breakdown of the nuclear American family. I and my family do not support any further firearms legislation as it will do nothing to stop criminals and mentally unstable persons from committing crimes, but instead will hamstring the law abiding citizens and hinder our ability to protect ourselves and our families. I believe in our law enforcement officers and that they do an outstanding job in attempting to protect us, but even they have told me that they only arrive after a crime has been committed and cannot be everywhere at once to stop criminals from perpetrating horrible acts. Our founding fathers gave that right and ability to us as citizens to protect ourselves and our families through the second amendment. I do not wish to see that right infringed anymore, nor do I wish to see the power of our great state diminished under more oppressive federal legislation and oversight. Please support HB42 and make sure that it’s final version includes protecting ALL semi-automatic firearms and magazines, as I do not wish to be out of rounds before the criminals who are intent to do my family harm. I have intimate experience with military weaponry and nothing available to the public is an “assault” rifle. Using fear and wordplay such as this to prey upon the emotions of well meaning people is not politics, it is deception and subversion and has been made use of to herd the American people like lambs to the wolves lair. We as a people deserve better, and as my representative, I ask that you use due diligence to seek out the truth in these matters for yourself and not depend on the media and the spin of politics to make your decisions on this issue. The standard I hold to is the oath I took to my Constitution and to serve and protect the people of this State and Nation. I expect no less from you Ma’am.
Thank you for your representation and I would appreciate an update if possible on your position in the matters before us.
Jonathan and Kendra Wells and Family

I’m pretty sure this means we did a lot of training and had a great time with SOLO Defense today! (Taken with Instagram)
