Do you remember Hurricane Katrina?
With all the news about Hurricane Irene, I have been thinking about your gun rights in light of the most recent "state of emergency."
As I'm sure you recall, during Katrina, Second Amendment rights of individuals were trampled on by government officials.
All because a single elected official issued a decree from up on high.
But since then, the cry from grassroots gun activists has been so loud that several states have adopted legislation to prevent that very thing from happening in their state.
During Hurricane Irene, Governor Perdue of North Carolina even tailored her declared "State of Emergency" to make sure it did not infringe on gun owners' rights.
Governor Perdue was scared of the power of grassroots gun rights activists.
North Carolina law, though, shouldn't even allow a governor to strip citizens of their God-given right to self defense.
There is still much work to be done in states all across this country.
Several state legislatures continue to give the governor of their state the authority to strip Second Amendment rights during a "state of emergency."
That is unacceptable.
Together, you and I can send a message to state legislators -- pass laws to protect gun owners during a "state of emergency."
Just as soon as you can, get on the phone with your state elected officials. Demand that they actively call for and push for legislation that would protect gun owners during a "state of emergency."
A "state of emergency" could be declared at any time. Take action today.
