    Range protection passes senate

    Grass Roots North Carolina, P.O. Box 10665, Raleigh, NC 27605, 919-664-8565, www.GRNC.org

    GRNC Alert 5-24-11:
    RANGE PROTECTION PASSES SENATE

    This afternoon, SB 560: "Sport Shooting Range Protection" passed out of the North Carolina Senate by a vote of 36-13. Speaking on behalf of the bill was Sen. Andrew Brock (R-Davie/Rowan, GRNC ****). Speaking against the bill were Sens. Josh Stein (D-Wake, GRNC 0-star) and Floyd McKissick (D-Durham, GRNC 0-star). Because the rules were suspended to permit both Second Reading and Third Reading on a single day, SB 560 passed the Senate and now heads for the House. The bill is now immune from the legislature's June 9 "crossover deadline" and remains alive for next year even if not acted upon by the House before probable adjournment in July.

    Re: HB 650

    Dear Representative,

    I'd like to express my support for HB 650, "Amend Various Gun Bills." I urge you to support this bill as well, currently in your Judiciary Subcommittee C.
    Please use all your influence to further this bill to the floor for a successful vote. I will be monitoring the progress of HB 650 through Grass Roots North Carolina legislative alerts.

    Forget about the statistically unsupported fear-mongering that critics of the 2nd Amendment spew forth. These folks usually have the dismal outlook that the only thing keeping "us" from killing each other on the streets is access to a convenient means, such as a firearm. I know that people are better than that, and should be trusted accordingly. I've carried a .45 for the last 10 years, and I've never shot anyone.

    Think of Liberty and Freedom first, always first. I'm a normal, friendly guy who carries a gun; for protection and also out of respect for the better men than I that died to protect my rights.

    Sincerely,
    "In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot." - Mark Twain

    I don't bother with pragmatic statistics while discussing my constitutional rights. The issue is far less complex, to me. Free men should be able to act like free men.

    Any idea when HB111 will be heard? There has been no activity in a while.

    I got the same canned response.
    "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."
    Thomas Jefferson
