If you share our taste for the ‘politically incorrect’

… it doesn’t get any better than this!

 

Because GRNC is limited by law from using membership funds to impact elections, we must raise money separately for our federally registered political action committee, the GRNC Political Victory Fund.

 

And make no mistake: In this critical election year, when Democrats are predicting a “Blue Wave” will sweep the country (and simultaneously sweep away our freedoms), GRNC-PVF needs money more than ever!

 

To continue our tradition of politically incorrect gun raffles to raise money for the purpose of electing pro-gun candidates, we cast about for a worthy successor to the wildly successful “Hillary Clinton Special” of 2016.

Well, we’ve found it: The W.M.D.* Raffle, featuring the gun that GRNC made legal in North Carolina!


And how did GRNC make this gun legal, you ask? Let us tell you the story.

The left wants to define certain guns as “bad guns,” as though semi-automatic firearms (or concealable guns, or bump stocks, or whatever the left wants to ban today) are somehow capable of independent action.

So imagine the “Schadenfreud” we felt when we discovered that the efforts of Grass Roots North Carolina had rendered legal, in North Carolina, one of what they will undoubtedly consider the “baddest” guns of all, namely the Mossberg “Shockwave.”

Back in 2011, when we passed Castle Doctrine, we drafted and quietly slipped into the bill a provision designed to resolve conflicting statutes on legal ownership of machine guns. Of course, we made sure not to use the words “machine gun” anywhere, and it passed into law without debate.

Now cut to 2017, when the BATFE determined that because it was not designed, made, and intended to be shot from the shoulder, the Mossberg “Shockwave” is not a shotgun, further deciding that the Shockwave was an ordinary firearm, and therefore not regulated as a short-barreled shotgun under the highly restrictive 1934 National Firearms Act.

But just because it’s legal under federal law doesn’t make it legal under North Carolina law and, indeed, many read our statutes as prohibiting the gun despite the fact that it was being sold around the state.

When we learned that a North Carolina sheriff had asked the Attorney General for a determination on the gun, we feared the worst. So we were pleasantly surprised when we read the letter from a representative of the Attorney General’s office concluding: “…the weapon described is a weapon of mass death and destruction, but because it falls within an exception listed in N.C.G.S. 14-288.8(b)(5), its possession alone would not constitute a crime.”

So we looked up the statute in question, and were gratified to discover it was the very same statute we had quietly slipped into law in 2011, proving that GRNC’s foresight in drafting the language had paid off.

Conditions and disclaimers:

This will be an e-raffle like we have done in the past. Your ticket number(s) will be sent to you by email, typically within 48 hours.

Drawing will be held on the dates shown above. Tickets will be selected by use  by use of a random number generator. The winners will be notified by email or phone (if provided). Winners will have ten days to respond or forfit prize. North Carolina residents must be 21 years of age. Out of state residents need to check local laws and regulations. A NC FFL cannot ship to any place a shockwave is not legal.

This raffle will be conducted pursuant to North Carolina law, as determined by a licensed attorney at the time of the raffle based on available guidance (whether advisory letter or Advisory Opinion) from the Office of the Attorney General of North Carolina. Furthermore, only the legality of possession and transfer of the firearm are considered -- GRNC makes no representation of the legality of any act(s) by the winner, and takes no responsibility for such acts (for example, carrying a Shockwave concealed may change its classification and/or legality, under NC and/or federal law). Should NC law, or interpretation thereof by the Office of the Attorney General, change so as to cast doubt on the legality of the transfer, the winner will be awarded a cash prize in lieu of the Shockwave. As with any GRNC raffle of any firearm, the transfer shall be in accordance with NC and federal law, and occur via a Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL), who shall independently verify the winner's eligibility to receive the firearm. If a winner is legally prohibited from taking possession of the firearm, his or her prize is forfeit and an alternate winner shall be drawn. All costs of the transfer (taxes, transfer fees, shipping, etc.) are the responsibility of the winner.

Officers, Board of Directors of Grass Roots North Carolina, the GRNC Political Victory Fund and Rights Watch International (and their immediate family members) are not eligible to win.
