Smithfield has already passed an over-reaching and illegal park ban ordinance. They seem slow to see the error of their ways. We need to clarify the problem they have created in person!




Their next meeting will be held Tuesday, December 6 at 7:30 pm in the Town Hall Council Chambers, 350 East Market Street, Smithfield, NC.


They will be presenting plans for their "friends of the parks" fundraiser. We will present our plans for the park to become more friendly - by allowing safe, sane and sober concealed carry!




They need your support!



Prepare to Attend


  • Prepare signs to carry and display at the Town Council meeting.

  • Suggested slogans include, "Families Deserve Protection in Parks", "Why Should Only Criminals Be Armed?", "Police Don't Fit On My Belt", "'Shall Not Be Infringed' What Don't You Understand "

  • Keep them clean and respectful, BUT PRESENT THEM BOLDLY WITH PRIDE!

  • Save the date and do your best to attend - YOUR ATTENDENCE IS POWERFUL AND EFFECTIVE!



  • Contact coordinator Jeff Lawrence to help you attend the meeting most effectively:

  • Contact the Town Council whether or not you can attend.

  • Use the cut-and-paste email list below:,,,,,,,

Town of Smithfield Representatives,


It is clear that your town ordinance banning lawful carry in Smithfield parks was not intended to comply with state law (HB 650, Castle Doctrine and Concealed Carry Permitted in Parks), but to take every opportunity to "not comply" with this important freedom-promoting new legislation.


The predictable result is an intentionally over-reaching ordinance that is in clear violation of state law.


Your ordinance is illegal, irrational, unjustifiable and a clear example of disrespect for both state law and the Constitutional rights of free Americans.


It must be rescinded immediately.


I will be following progress through Grass Roots North Carolina.
