Morrisville City Council meets Tuesday (10/22) to decide your fate as gun owners…
Morrisville Mayor Jackie Holcombe is once again attempting to unlawfully abridge your rights with another town council meeting to circumvent state law. According to The Cary News, Holcombe is again calling for more restrictions for law-abiding Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP) holders, despite recent advances in law which took effect on October 1st. Residents of Morrisville will have their chance to counter this latest barrage of attacks against their rights at a scheduled Morrisville Town Council meeting on October 22nd.
Holcombe's attack on your rights is just the latest example of her long history of antipathy toward the Second Amendment. In 2012, she became a useful political appendage for New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his disturbing Mayors Against Illegal Guns group (MAIG), first by trying to work around the expansion of gun rights brought by HB650 when signed into law, and then by attempting to strong-arm private businesses such as Gander Mountain into “doing their part” by “discontinuing sales of semi-automatic rifles and high capacity ammunition magazines." within their Morrisville location.
Mayor Holcombe simply doesn’t want you, or your guns, anywhere around Morrisville no matter what the law allows for and she has proven that she will use her political influence to accomplish her goals. Worse, she is more than willing and able to do Bloomberg’s bidding right here in our own communities.
In a time when more and more mayors around the country are suddenly fleeing MAIG’s sinking ship after realizing that it’s not “illegal guns” that Bloomberg is after, it is ALL guns he wants made illegal to own, Mayor Holcombe chooses to cling tighter to the battle flag and continues to do his bidding in our own backyard.
The time is right for real change
The good news is that the chance to send Mayor Holcombe and her MAIG-tainted brand of anti-gun activism packing once and for all is right around the corner. The Morrisville Town Elections will be held on November 5th, with early voting beginning on October 17th. If you are a resident of Morrisville and want Mayor Bloomberg’s influence out of your local political domain, here’s your chance!
If she has a strong showing in this election, the general consensus is that she will then make a run for the North Carolina General Assembly during the next election cycle. If you think dealing with outrageous and idiotic restrictions against your legal right to carry is hard enough to deal with in Morrisville, imagine having to deal with it on a state-wide basis! This is exactly what we would face if Mayor Holcombe would be elected to the NCGA, and Bloomberg would have an open door into our state legislative body through her seat. Think about that as you attend these town council meetings and cast your votes in upcoming elections.
