Law enforcement is our first line of defense against the destructive forces of anarchy and and against the criminal elements of our society. Strong, decisive law enforcement must continue. Our Governor believes in law and order. He has delivered this message all over the United States and was delivering it again when he almost lost his life from a bullet, fired by a man with a criminal mind, an attempted assassin. Our Governor is still standing up for I~w and order. NOW IS THE TIME FOR US TO STAND UP FOR THE GOVERNOR. Let us all join together and insist that our Senators and Represen- tatives support the Governor in hi s effort to maintain law and order and return our God given rights to us. -~ We want local control with as little Federal intervention as po ssible.
