Senate Petition

Dear Senator,

This is to express my support for SJ 302 introduced by Senator Richard Stuart, a "Fourth Amendment for the 21st Century."

Virginia does not have a Fourth Amendment.

Do you support government spying on the emails, phone calls, and data of innocent, law-abiding Virginians?

Do you want government snooping in our backyards, fields, and pastures, even using drones like peeping Toms?

Do you support or tolerate government lawlessness?

Do you believe the phrase "ignorance of the law is no excuse" should be applied to citizens but not government officials with search and seizure powers?

OR

Are you on the side of people's rights and security in their private data, personal communications, backyards and fields, and other property?

Do you believe that government officials should know and respect the People's law?

Do you believe that good, sound law enforcement applies to government officials and our vast bureaucracies?

If you support good government that provides people security in their property and their rights -- and protects the safety of our valiant police officers -- then you should support SJ 302, a "Fourth Amendment for the 21st Century."

I do not support lawless government, or government snooping on innocent, law-abiding Virginians.

And I believe that our constitutional rights should be clear, and not so complicated that even lawyers and judges cannot understand them.

How you vote on SJ 302, a "Fourth Amendment for the 21st Century," will tell me whose side you're on:  Law-abiding citizens, or lawless government.

So please announce your support for SJ 302, the "Fourth Amendment for the 21st Century," and vote to send it to the people for their vote.

Thank you.
