Rally will present unified message:
Molon labe – ‘Come and get them’
It is time to demonstrate to legislators that you are serious about defending your rights. GRNC will give you the opportunity to do just that: On Wednesday, January 23 at 12:00 PM, we are holding the Second Amendment Freedom Rally at the General Assembly in Raleigh. Yes, it is during the week, when you work. But it is the only time when we can be sure legislators will see you and get your message, namely that “COMPROMISE” ON GUN RIGHTS IS NOT AN OPTION.
We need to know whether you are coming and how many you will bring, so respond by sending a message to: FreedomRally@GRNC.org This address is not for information. Use the subject line: “__ people will attend,” indicating the number of people, including yourself, that you are bringing. Do not put anything into the body of the message.
Where: Halifax Mall between the Legislative Building and Legislative Office Building in Raleigh. The General Assembly is at: 16 West Jones Street, Raleigh, NC 27601
When: Wednesday, January 23 at 12:00 PM
Why: Because your rights depend on it
Please note that FIREARMS ARE PROHIBITED BY LAW AT THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY. Additional details, including relevant regulations, parking, etc. will be announced in coming days. It is suggested that you schedule an appointment with, or at least drop in on your state House and Senate reps on the morning before the rally. Your state reps can be found at:
‘NATIONAL COALITION TO STOP THE GUN BAN’ GROWS
The coalition organized by GRNC and others continues to grow, and now includes 34 participating gun rights organizations, including 6 national organizations and 34 state groups. Most recently, Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership signed on. For a full list, go to: www.GRNC.org
IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED
IMMEDIATELY CONTACT YOUR US HOUSE REP AND BOTH SENATORS: Send them an email AND call their offices. Regardless of whether you have contacted them before, do it again. Due to the congressional email system, it is only possible to email your own US House rep, but it is suggested that you CALL all of them. That’s right: “FIFTEEN PHONE CALLS FOR FREEDOM.”
SIGN THE “STOP THE GUN BAN” PETITION: Go to:www.StopTheGunBan.org Whether or not you have already signed it, forward this to others and tell them to sign it too.
ATTEND THE FREEDOM RALLY: Immediately send a message to FreedomRally@GRNC.org using the subject “__ people will attend” and indicating how many, including yourself, you will bring.
SUPPORT GRNC: Thanks to your generosity, GRNC continues to gain strength, but we will need more to fight the looming ban. If you have already contributed, please tell others to go to: http://grnc.org/index.php/join-grnc/contribute
DELIVER THIS MESSAGE
Dear [Congressman or Senator]:
According to reports from inside the Obama administration as reported by “The Washington Post,” the administration plans nothing less than a full assault on American freedom, beginning with universal registration of guns and gun owners.
Beyond even the draconian ban on semi-automatic firearms being proposed by Senator Dianne Feinstein – which would entail dramatic expansion of police powers by the chronically abusive BATFE – what the administration proposes will result in the government tracking activities of millions of law-abiding citizens.
Absolutely nothing about any of these proposals is acceptable, meaning no “compromise” is possible. The proposals must die. Period. If they pass in any form, the result will be willful non-compliance by millions of otherwise law-abiding Americans who will then become “criminals.” What happens then remains to be seen, but will almost certainly result in violence.
Only you can stop the destruction of American freedom. I will be closely monitoring your actions via Grass Roots North Carolina legislative alerts.
