GRNC Alert 4-21-11:
HB 111: Raleigh City Council Noses In
Big City Elitist Anti-Gunners Oppose HB 111
Pretending that it was any of their business, the Raleigh City Council - reaffirming their leftist credentials - have publicly come out in opposition to HB 111, which would protect your legal right to self defense in restaurants and parks.
In fact they proudly put the following release on the city website... (in case it didn't register, they are spending your tax dollars, to lobby against your rights) at http://www.raleighnc.gov/home/conten...ndgunBill.html :
"The Raleigh City Council on April 19 voted 7-0 to approve a resolution opposing provisions of a concealed handgun bill before the North Carolina General Assembly.
"The proposed legislation would allow people with concealed permits to carry their handguns into public parks and restaurants that serve alcohol. The bill has been approved by the House and is now in the Senate.
"For more information, contact City Attorney Thomas McCormick (Tom.McCormick@raleighnc.gov) at 919-831-6560."
Well, we suggest that you follow the last piece of advice in their note and contact the city attorney and advise him that his clients should not deprive you of your right of self protection. In fact, we are going to provide you with the contact info for the entire city council, so you may tell them yourselves.
IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED:
The following contact information can be found at the city council's website: http://www.raleighnc.gov/government/...tyCouncil.html
Also, they conveniently provide an email address that will email the entire City Council at firstname.lastname@example.org

Dear City Council:
Why are you spending the people's money on depriving them of their right of self protection? By opposing House Bill 111, that is what you are doing. Are you prepared to guarantee everyone's safety in restaurants and parks? What will you say when your promises prove hollow?
I urge you to drop your opposition to HB 111. I will be following the progress of this matter through Grass Roots North Carolina and will remember them THIS FALL at the city council elections.

Luke 22:36 ; 36Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
"guns are like a Parachute, if you don't have one when you need it, you will not need one again"
i you call a CHP a CCW then you are really stupid. period.
"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes...Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."
Have any representatives (such as police chief) of the city been up to your General Assembly to lobby against these bills? If they have been up there in their official capacity, particularly in uniform, they have likely violated the Hatch Act ()and stand to lose all supporting federal money to the city for such actions.
See here for details: http://www.osc.gov/hatchact.htm
* I did some reading and realized that the Hatch Act doesn't cover what I'd been told it covered. Please excuse my ignorant suggestion.
