In case you were wondering why we must NEVER allow the Democrats to regain control of North Carolina's Legislature, we give you H723 - The "Gun Safety Act," sponsored by the usual anti-gun Democrats, Pricey Harrison, Verla Insko, Susan Fisher, Carla Cunningham, Cecil Brockman, Jean Farmer-Butterfield, and Elmer Floyd.

It's a Bloomberg anti-gun wish list:

  • Repeals Stand Your Ground/No Duty to Retreat
  • Repeals Castle Doctrine in vehicles and workplaces
  • Starkly limits Castle Doctrine in your home
  • Repeals Self Defense Immunity
  • Oddly appears to repeal the law against using claims of self defense when     one has provoked the encounter or is committing, attempting to commit, or escaping after the commission of a felony
  • Imposes strict "Safe Storage" laws making you criminally liable if a felon breaks into your house, steals your gun, and uses it in a crime
  • Imposes criminal liability if you fail to report a stolen gun
  • Imposes a requirement for $100,000 liability insurance to own a firearm
  • Repeals NC's universal reciprocity law.
  • Bans the possession, sale, and transfer of magazines in handguns and rifles that hold more than 15 rounds for handguns and rifles, or 8 rounds for shotguns
  • Requires the State to divest itself of all stocks and bonds in "firearms manufacturers"
  • Introduces "Gun Violence Restraining Orders" which will allow your "immediate family members" to seek a secret court hearing which will allow a judge to take away your right to possess a firearm

It is nothing short of a brazen attack not only on your Second Amendment rights, but also on your natural right to self defense. And what's worse is that we have every reason to believe that our new anti-gun Governor would sign this!

Since the Republicans control both the House and Senate, it is unlikely that such a bill will ever get to the Governor's desk, but is that all we elected pro-gun legislators, to block anti-gun bills? NO! We elected them to pass good bills like the following:

  • NC Constitutional Carry Act (H746)
  • Omnibus Gun Changes (H588)
  • Concealed Handgun Standardization Act (H438)

A Reminder

Despite holding a super majority in our House and Senate, we can never stop being vigilant of the shenanigans from Democrats looking to strip our basic right to bear arms.  We must continue to fight even if the odds appear to be in our favor.

Suggested Subject: "Stopping bad bills is NOT ENOUGH"  


Dear Representative:


It's not enough to block virulently anti-gun bills like H723 the badly misnamed so called "Gun Safety Act." We worked to elect you to pass pro civil rights bills, even over the objections of our anti-gun governor.

We demand prompt hearings and swift passage of the following:

  • NC Constitutional Carry Act (H746)
  • Omnibus Gun Changes (H588)
  • Concealed Handgun Standardization Act (H438)

And when our anti-gun Governor attempts to veto these common sense pro-civil rights bills, we expect you to override that veto. With a super majority in both houses of the NCGA, we expect action from you, the legislators, to see our civil rights are restored after years of assault at the hands of previous administrations.

I will continue to monitor your actions on this matter through alerts from Grass Roots North Carolina.






Suggested Subject: "Your assault on our civil rights is UNACCEPTABLE"  


Dear Representative:


Lawful, peaceable gun owners like me are tired of being used as scapegoats by legislators pretending to be working against crime.

As you are well aware, since mid 1990's all crime, both violent and property, has been cut in half as the number of lawful concealed carriers in North Carolina has gone from near zero to more than half a million.

Furthermore, there has been an uptick of minorities and LGBT members choosing to arm themselves.  Would you deny them, and indeed all law-abiding citizens, their right to defend themselves and their families?  Is that fair?

Your continued assault on my civil rights is duly noted, reminding me why the Democrats must never be allowed to regain control of the NC General Assembly.

I will be monitoring your actions through Grass Roots North Carolina legislative alerts.






As you know, GRNC is an all volunteer force. As such, we are looking for volunteers in a couple of areas:

    Experience in web development to include HTML, CSS & Java Scripting. If interested, contact GRNC President using the following contact form:
    Solid writing skills, ability to translate legal, political, technical and firearms jargon into layman's terms and make the public care about the issue. Ability to manipulate HTML style emails on the code level is a nice to have. If interested, please contact GRNC using this e-mail address:

If you have these skills, you can help the Second Amendment fight by enhancing and expanding GRNC’s presence, ensuring our message is received broadly in these modern times.

Don’t let your talents go to waste, as you could be the difference between gun-rights advancements and gun-rights losses.

Be the person who says, “I did something!” Instead of the person who says, “I should have done something.”
