Gun Freedom is Snowballing

Recently, Alamance, Cherokee, and Rowan County leaders all voted to repeal county restrictions on the lawful carry of firearms in their respective counties. In early October, Lee County is expected to finalize their vote for gun freedom as well. In fact, these counties were preceded by still more counties, Guilford and Mecklenburg, which have lifted all restrictions on concealed carry in their parks. It's refreshing to see all of these counties blaze a trail for gun freedom in North Carolina. The victories just keep on coming! What’s even better is that yet another county, Cabarrus, is considering the same path.

This is promising news, but a full repeal of carry restrictions in Cabarrus County is by no means in the bag. Although county leaders are considering a repeal of all restrictions, they may only go as far as lifting most restrictions on concealed carry in parks, which HB937 has actually required of them since October of last year. Merely complying with HB937, however, would be the bare minimum, and Cabarrus County citizens should expect more than the minimum from their public servants. 

Encourage Cabarrus County Leaders

Obviously, the most reasonable path is a repeal of all carry ordinances currently restricting law-abiding citizens. Regulating lawful carry only disarms the peaceful and innocent, while empowering those who would prey upon them. This seems like common sense to most, but politicians don’t always vote based on common sense. If Cabarrus County is to continue the positive trend of gun freedom that is sweeping North Carolina, the County Commissioners will need your support. Below, see how you can quickly and easily send a message to the Cabarrus County Commissioners to encourage and embolden them to vote in favor of law-abiding gun owners. Also below, get details on the upcoming meeting of the County Commission so you can attend and support gun rights.

Suggested Subject:

"Vote to Repeal Restrictions on Lawful Carry of Firearms"

Dear Cabarrus County Commissioner:

I have just been informed that the Cabarrus County Commission intends to update the county’s gun laws in the near future, and I am writing to encourage the commission to repeal all county restrictions on the lawful carry of firearms.

Alamance, Cherokee, and Rowan Counties have already lifted county restrictions on the lawful carry of firearms, and Lee County is poised to do the same in early October. These county leaders recognized that a patchwork of “gun-free zones” serve only to make accidental felons out of otherwise peaceful, law-abiding citizens, while doing nothing to ensure safety. They voted to lift restrictions, and by doing so, expressed respect for gun rights, and empowered the citizens and employees of their respective counties.

You now have the opportunity to join these trail blazers and send a positive message to the gun-owing voters of Cabarrus County. A decision to trust your county’s citizens, employees, and fellow North Carolinians to act responsibly and lawfully would be both reasonable and commendable. Please vote to repeal all restrictions on the lawful carry of firearms in Cabarrus County.

I will continue to monitor this issue via alerts from Grass Roots North Carolina.
