While We’re Out Christmas Shopping

Early next week, as the rest of us recover from our turkey-induced comas, see off our visiting relatives and munch on Thanksgiving leftovers, some Alamance County Commissioners are planning an activity that does not conjure an image of so much Americana. Unfortunately, it appears that a few of the commissioners (Manning, Massey & Smith) are still scheming to sneak an anti-gun ordinance through while their constituents are distracted by holiday travel and Christmas shopping. This is certainly not in the spirit of the holidays.

Last week, GRNC informed its supporters that the Alamance County Commissioners were considering an ordinance to enact a total gun ban in county buildings by banning open carry (concealed carry is already banned).  Unfortunately, after hearing from gun owners, rather than doing the right thing, some of the commissioners apparently continue to seriously consider a gun ban, and they are planning a vote on such an ordinance this Monday morning.

Give Thanks by Standing Up for Your Rights
There is no time more appropriate than Thanksgiving to reflect on the fact that we live in a place where our Natural rights are recognized and protected. What better way to give thanks for being blessed in this way than to stand up for those rights? Please contact the County Commissioners and let them know that you will not tolerate an infringement on the gun rights of every citizen in Alamance County just because of the prejudices of a few.

Below you will find suggested text for an e-mail that you can send to the County Commissioners who are believed to still be supporting the gun ban. Use the copy-and-paste e-mail list provided to send them this critical message. Also, please attend the County Commission meeting this Monday morning. Details for the meeting are below as well.

If there was ever a time to send an e-mail, spread the word, attend a county meeting, and to not count on the “other guy” to stand up for your rights, this is it.


  • E-mail the offending Alamance County Commissioners. Below you will find a recommended e-mail message you can use. Also, under ‘Contact Info,’ you’ll find a copy-paste e-mail address list for the commissioners in question.

  • Attend the County Commission meeting on Monday, December 2nd at 9:00 AM. Let the Commissioners know that comprehensive gun bans are not acceptable, and the prejudiced attitude of a few does not constitute a legitimate reason for an enormous power grab that restricts the law-abiding. On your way in, be sure to grab a "Guns Save Lives" sticker to wear from the GRNC volunteer at the door.

Suggested Subject: "No Comprehensive Gun Ban for Alamance County"

Dear Alamance County Commissioners,

I understand that a comprehensive gun ban is still being seriously considered by the County Commission, and I am writing to inform you that any such ordinance would be a step in the wrong direction for Alamance County.

No one is more concerned for the safety of county workers than I am. In fact, promoting the safety of law-abiding citizens is precisely the reason I am taking the pro-freedom position on this issue.

I respectfully insist that you vote ‘no’ on any ordinance that would further restrict the Second Amendment rights of Alamance County citizens. The entire population of Alamance County should not be forced to endure a dangerous gun ban just because of the prejudices of a few.

I will be monitoring this issue via alerts from Grass Roots North Carolina.


P.S. It appears that Commissioner Smith does not have an e-mail address for conducting correspondence with the public. For that reason, I ask that you kindly pass my message along to him as well.
