Got this through the NRA. It's worth the yearly fee not to have to track down the emails myself. This is the letter I sent if anyone wants to use it or abuse it. Bassically I sent it to the entire Judiciary Comm. Lot's of complaints about the Castle Doctrine so lets get on this one! They meet on Thursday the 30th to discuss this.
Dear senator ....
Since you are serving on the NC Senate Judiciary II Committee I am writing to ask that you support SB 928. North Carolina needs a true Castle Doctrine law that would protect law abiding citizens that find themselves in the unfortunate situation where they need to defend themselves with force. Our Current laws are rather vague on when and how much force can be used. When someone is being attacked by a criminal it is not the time to have to decide what the right action would be. We need to take the protection away from the criminals and but it back with the law abiding citizens where it belongs.
Along similar lines I ask that you oppose SB 987. This bill states that it is to ensure "safe" storage of firearms, but renders them nearly useless for self defense in a home. I live in a small home and any law that requires that I lock my firearms up and keep them unloaded with the ammunition in a seperate locked location would render them useless in a defense situation.
Thank you for your time and service to the great state of North Carolina.
