Letter: Military veteran Dickinson's Alan Fehr right choice
The National Rifle Association recently announced its endorsement of candidates for the state Legislature.
A reader might assume that those not endorsed hold opinions contrary to those of the NRA.
In fact, the opposite is true. Alan Fehr, a decorated veteran and businessman who grew up working on his family’s grain farm, shares the NRA’s support of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution: the right for citizens to bear arms.
Let me provide this example: Fehr served in the armed forces of this great country for more than 20 years, beginning with active duty in the U.S. Navy when he was just 20 years old.
He served with honor and distinction during the War on Terror when he was deployed with the Army Reserve in 2004-05 to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. In fact, he continues to serve and protect as a North Dakota National Guardsman — ready to protect his state and nation at a moment’s notice and to take up arms to defend our country.
Fehr is one of those great patriots who stands ready to protect and defend the safety of the American people — including the constitutional right of citizens to bear arms.
He is a Republican candidate for the House of Representatives from District 36 and well deserves the vote of each and every hunter, outdoorsman and woman, soldier and NRA member.
Join me in bringing this military veteran who supports the right of citizens to bear arms to the North Dakota Legislature.
Frank Klein, Dickinson, District 36 Republican Party vice chairman
