Op Ed: Resolution 2A

Independent, Ketchikan, Alaska
Ketchikan, Alaska

I support Mayor Dial and Assembly Member Bynum’s resolution opposing unconstitutional infringement of the rights of the Borough citizens under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution, and urging Governor Dunleavy and the Alaska State Legislature to oppose broad restrictions on the rights of citizens to bear arms.

As a person who was born in Ketchikan and as a business owner who hosts hundreds of visitors from the Lower 48 each summer at our fishing lodge, I can attest this will send a positive message that Ketchikan is a community of law abiding citizens who value and respect each others’ personal liberties and freedoms.

The First and Second Constitutional Amendments do not give us our natural born rights to freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of the press, freedom to assemble and petition the government and the freedom to keep and bear arms: The First and Second Amendments were written to prevent the government from taking these rights away.

My husband, Jeff Wedekind, and I thank Ketchikan Gateway Borough Mayor Dial and the Assembly for their service and dedication to protecting individual freedoms and Ketchikan’s way of life.
