    GRNC Alert 2-27-11: No Amendments to SB 34: 'Castle Doctrine'

    GRNC Alert 2-27-11:
    No Amendments to SB 34: 'Castle Doctrine'

    Word is echoing through the hallowed halls in Raleigh that plans are afoot for amendments to SB 34 on Third Reading tomorrow. Now is the time to remind all Senators (with extra special emphasis on your own Senator) that you will not tolerate any moves to weaken SB 34. You have worked too hard and come too far to let a strong Castle Doctrine slip through your fingers now.
    IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED

    Use GRNC automated e-mail to send a message to the entire NC Senate: http://grnc.org/alerts/email2_27_11.htm
    Dear Senator:
    SB 34, Castle Doctrine, is too important to the well being of North Carolinians to allow it to be weakened through weakening amendments. Use all the power at your disposal to prevent this from happening. A vote for any amendment that will weaken SB 34 will be counted as an anti-gun vote.
    I will be tracking the progress of this and your actions through Grass Roots North Carolina legislative alerts.
    Respectfully,
    A Concerned North Carolina Voter

    lol yeah, it was tricky finding it on WRAL.com but I got it just as they were finishing the prayer. It took maybe ten mins after that before it's reading. It had a couple Senators hop up before the vote to state their ridiculous arguments against it, but it passed soon after.

    My favorite argument against it was from the one guy who feared that we would be "deputizing every driver on the highways" lol. In his mind he pictured every driver in the state suddenly armed and shooting at will if this Bill passed. Outstanding. I bet his constituents are proud of him...

    At least no one tried to cram amendments into it.

    I had the Senate audio going while I was trying to find the video so I did get to hear it.

    There were no amendments because every member of the Senate was bombarded with emails and phone calls today. You may not have notice, the second reading vote was 33-17. Tonight vote was 35-13. At least two Senators changed their vote.

    Some will change their vote on the third reading when they know it will pass with a majority just to get a recorded pro gun vote.

    I missed it - couldn't get the audio to work.

    Doesn't sound like I missed much though--it passed, that's what's important.

    I moved to a different part of the house and the computer there didn't want to work right. Got the audio up just before the vote.

    Several year ago my wife was making calls to some politicians office ans was told they couldn't get anything done because of answering the phone. My wife responded, vote right and the calls will stop.

    So give yourself a pat on the back and get ready for the next battle. After 12 years of doing this, I'm still having fun.

    Yes, I'm sure the politician actually doing the voting was answering calls...

    Also, good response from your wife.

    Sometimes they do. That time it was a legislative assistant. (I believe that's what they are called)

    This is over in the House as HB52 right now, at Judiciary Subcommittee B. I sent them all an email tonight to support it, and no amendments.

    HB 54 is the weak castle doctrine bill, forget it and push for HB 74

    Even though GA web site shows HB 54 and SB 34 tied together, HB 54 is what SB34 used to be before the PCS
