    I was looking through the NC Wildlife Commission proposed regulation changes for the 2009 Hunting Season and this is what I found:

    Remove restrictions on the types of firearms allowed on game lands during

    open hunting seasons, but while big game seasons are closed.

    Currently, it is illegal to possess on game lands a shotgun shell

    containing larger than No. 4 shot or any rifle or pistol larger than a .22 caliber

    rimfire during the closed big game firearms seasons. This regulation would

    eliminate those restrictions and open up opportunities to hunters.

    This would finally allow self-defense firearms to be carried on NC Gamelands and National Forests since some hunting seasons such as coyote season do not close. To get this passed we must make our voice heard at the NC Wildlife Commission Public Hearings. Here is the schedule for the hearings:

    Hearing Time:
    7 p.m.

Proposed changes in regulations contained in this booklet will not be presented or discussed at the public hearing on Jan. 28.

    This is our chance to allow people the opportunity of self-defense inone of those big places that we have been complaining about.Mark the meetings that are in your area on your calender and go make your voice heard!!!

    Just sent a notice to the National Rifle Association and Gun Owners of America. Let's get the ball rolling. Anyone else a member of any other pro-gun organizations?
