GRNC Alert 6-1-11:
HB 650 Passes House Judiciary C
HB 650, the massive gun bill we have been telling you about is now passed in House Judiciary C Sub-Committee. We now need you to contact the full House list to express your support for this important bill.
HB 650 is a huge and aggressive bill, meaning it will be difficult to pass. But if passed, it will go far toward reversing the creeping encroachment on gun owners' rights perpetuated in previous sessions of the legislature, including (but not limited to):
* Castle Doctrine (yet another vehicle for popular Castle Doctrine is now moving);
* Reducing penalties for carrying firearms on "educational property," including a protection against accidentally becoming a criminal by requiring that offenders "knowingly" brought the gun onto educational property;
* Enabling concealed carry at events for which admission is charged;
* Reducing penalties for a host of minor (often inadvertent) gun violations;
* Adding protections for gun owners whose guns are confiscated pursuant to domestic protective orders;
* Improves concealed handgun reciprocity to straight recognition of out-of-state permits;
* Removes provisions for concealed handgun applicants under which sheriffs are conducting intrusive investigations of medical history; and
* Enabling employees to keep guns in locked vehicles at places of employment.
IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED
* CONTACT ALL MEMBERS of the NC House (copy and paste list below).
DELIVER THIS MESSAGE
I am writing to urge your support of HB 650, "Amend Various Gun Laws." It is vital that this important bill become law. It will provide such needed measures as Castle Doctrine. It will provide for the defense needs of our citizens as well as providing important legal protections.
I will be following the progress of this bill with great interest through the alerts of Grass Roots North Carolina.

Get a DVR, a Digital Voice Recorder, carry it 24/7. It's cheap, easy and makes a good witness in Court.
