Petition calling upon members of the General Assembly to finish the work they began by requiring bureaucrats to obey laws enabling citizens to defend themselves
I, the signatory of this petition, do hereby affirm that:
Whereas our concealed handgun permit law, enacted in 1995, has for nearly twenty years successfully enabled law- abiding citizens to protect themselves and their families, all while experiencing nearly complete absence of abuses by permit-holders;
Whereas since adopting concealed carry in 1995, the North Carolina violent crime rate tracked by the NC State Bureau of Investigation has dropped by 65.4%, including corresponding drops in murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault;
DELIVER A CLEAR MESSAGE TO POLITICIANS:
ATTEND 'CITIZEN LOBBY DAY'
Join GRNC legislative team members for "Citizen Lobby Day" on January 29, 2015 at 9:00 AM at the NC General Assembly, 16 West Jones Street, Raleigh, NC 27601. We will take as much or as little time as you can invest in this critically important effort to deliver a clear message to legislators that you elected them to expand North Carolina gun rights. Michael Bloomberg's many "astroturf" gun control organizations create the appearance of grass roots support where none actually exists. Now it's time for YOU to show politicians what grass roots mobilization really looks like. Yes, it is during the week. No, it is not convenient to your work schedule. Unfortunately, however, it is the only time politicians will actually witness your efforts.
RALEIGH: JANUARY 29. BE THERE!
