The GRNC Political Victory Fund
By law, we are restricted from using organizational money to influence elections. The Grass Roots North Carolina Political Victory Fund is the tool we use to elect pro-gun lawmakers and throw out anti-gunners. The GRNC-PVF is North Carolina's federally registered political action committee. We use it to make political donations and to run radio and newspaper ads for and against candidates. If you can help out with a small contribution, we will use it to elect candidates who will defend your rights.
GRNC-PVF defeated anti-gun incumbents such as Senator Fountain Odom (2004), who was responsible for weakening the concealed handgun law and most recently replacing former House Majority Leader Hugh Holliman with pro-gun supporter Rayne Brown (2010) in NC's 81 House District.
GRNC-PVF ensured the election of Congressman Patrick McHenry, who says:
“For years, Grass Roots North Carolina has stood on the front lines in the battle to preserve and defend our Second Amendment Rights. Gun owners have a trusted friend in GRNC and they have shown that trust time and time again at the polls on Election Day. I am proud to have earned GRNC’s support in the past and look forward to working with them in the future as we continue the fight for the rights of law-abiding gun owners.”
You see, GRNC-PVF can attack anti-gunners in ways GRNC legally can’t, such as:
- Professionally done radio spots to defeat anti-gun candidates and elect those who support your rights; and
- Hard-hitting mailings to many thousands of gun owners in a politician’s district, delivering a loud-and-clear message that no anti-gunner is safe.
The problem is that election laws prohibit using membership funds for election action, meaning that we have to raise additional money for this last-ditch effort to take back our country.
Those of you who know me understand that I don’t ask for money lightly. GRNC doesn’t constantly churn for donations like certain other groups.
Instead, we ask only when we truly need it because, unlike other organizations, we value your trust more than your money.
But now’s the time, folks: The 2012 elections present both an opportunity to capitalize on voter unrest, and a danger to our individual freedoms if we fail.
