STOP Gun Control

Bills in Raleigh


Although your allies in the General Assembly have filed several great bills, the offsetting anti-gun bills are alarming, and must be nipped in the bud…

Here’s What’s Bad
As expected, with a sympathetic governor and a sense of momentum, the anti-gun politicians in Raleigh are champing at the bit to foist heavy duty control on North Carolina’s citizenry. You can find no better proof of this than by looking at the bills they have filed. Here’s just a taste (there are more):
    • H454:Allow ERPOs to Save Lives & Prevent Suicides.’ a.k.a. ‘Red Flag’ or ‘Extreme Risk Protection Order’ laws. You’ve read plenty about these recently, so you probably know that these proposed laws blatantly violate the second, fourth, fifth and sixth amendments. That’s a lot of amendments.

    • H86:Gun Violence Prevention Act.’ Is that Orwellian enough for you? This might as well be called the ‘Population Control Act,’ as it’s basically an omnibus of evil. Simply put, it’s chocked full of the wildest fantasies of gun control zealots everywhere.


  • H456:Permit Req'd/Assault Weapon & Long Gun.’ A bill to force the citizenry to obtain permits for their “Assault Weapons.” As GRNC and its supporters fight to eliminate the Jim Crow-era Pistol Purchase Permit, the anti-gun crowd in the General Assembly is working hard to expand the permission-slip system of gun purchases for ANY long gun. These guys have never seen an infringement they don’t like.

Scary right?

These bills cannot be allowed to get any traction. In order to make sure they don’t, GRNC is asking that you contact the Republicans in the General Assembly. Republicans still have a majority in both houses, so they ultimately decide if these bills are going to see the light of day or if they’ll languish and die (as ought to happen). Below, see how you can easily contact the legislators with the power of life and death over these disturbing gun control bills. Please remind these legislators that you’re watching them, and you expect them to legislate in the correct direction.  

Here’s What’s Good

Fortunately, there are still some great statesmen we can count on in Raleigh, and we’re happy to tell you about the pro-gun bills that they have recently introduced. As the legislative session proceeds, GRNC will keep you up to date on the progress of these bills, and there will surely be opportunities for you to actively encourage and support their journey through the process.

In fact, you can help to stop these bad bills, and encourage Republicans to shepherd the good bills through the Assembly. Do this by joining GRNC’s Legislative Action Team (LAT), in Raleigh, on Tuesday and/or Wednesday of next week. See the “sausage getting made” as you petition and redress your government. What could be more American? If you can join the LAT on either of these days, please inform GRNC’s Director of Development ahead of time, at this email address:
Now for the good bills...


    • H498: NC Constitutional Carry Act.’ This bill is similar to the omnibus bill, which contains permitless concealed carry, but H498 is focused on constitutional carry alone. Let’s face it, North Carolina is behind on this matter. Already, sixteen states have some form of constitutional carry, and the list is growing. Fortunately, we still have statesmen like primary sponsors Michael Speciale, Keith Kidwell, and Bobby Hanig, who have the courage to introduce excellent bills like this one.


  • H110 & S90:Protect Religious Meeting Places.’ These excellent bills open schools on religious property to concealed carry when school is not in session. This allows citizens to protect themselves and others while they worship, and we’ve all seen that those practicing religion (whichever it may be) are often targets. Thanks to Rep. Rena Turner (H110), Sens. Warren Daniel, Danny Britt, Jr., & Todd Johnson for sponsoring these bills.

Suggested Subject: "Act to Quash All Democrat Gun Control Bills" 

Dear NC Republican Legislator:

I am writing today because I am both incensed and horrified by the several gun control bills introduced by your Democrat colleagues in Raleigh. These bills call for unconstitutional ‘Red Flag’ laws, second and third-world-style permitting of common rifles and shotguns, invasive background checks, and several more proposals that are just as bad or worse. I need to know that you will do what’s necessary to stop these bills.

This is why I am demanding that you take whatever legislative actions are necessary to nip this California-style gun control in the bud. North Carolina is a free state, and we plan to keep it that way. The question is, are you going to be part of the team that overtly fights to maintain and expand that freedom? I will tell you, based on campaign promises, your party’s platform and more importantly, based on what is objectively right, gun voters expect you to be on that team. This is not the time for hiding in the shadows or sticking a moist finger in the air. You must fight.

You are an important member of the General Assembly in Raleigh. An influential position like yours comes with responsibility. The position also comes with high visibility, and in these critical times, I can assure you that voters are closely watching your actions on these matters. Do the right thing: use your position to take active steps to make sure these ominous gun control bills never have a hearing, and never receive a vote.

I will be closely monitoring your actions regarding these gun control bills through alerts from Grass Roots North Carolina.
