    [North Carolina] Pending Bills related to CCW in NC need your support!

    North Carolina Members:

    From yesterday's GRNC Action Alert:

    GRNC Alert 02-27-09:

    Ambitious gun rights agenda introduced in North Carolina

    Within the last week, no fewer than five pro-gun bills have been
    introduced in the North Carolina General Assembly thanks to pro-Second
    Amendment legislators like Representatives Mark Hilton, George
    Cleveland, Justin Burr, Jim Gulley, Tim Moore, Fred Steen, and Laura
    Wiley; and Senator Andrew Brock. More gun legislation can be expected
    to be introduced prior to the bill introduction deadlines of March 25
    for the Senate and April 8 for the House.

    H257: 'No Seizure of Lawful Firearms in Emergency'

    Introduced by Reps. Cleveland, Hilton, Moore and Wiley, H 257 is
    intended to prevent gun confiscation such as occurred in New Orleans
    after hurricane Katrina. The bill modifies the power of the Governor
    during states of emergency to specifically prohibit seizure of
    lawfully held firearms, ammunition or components.

    H 269: 'Concealed Handgun Permit Valid in Parks'

    Introduced by Reps. Hilton, Burr, Cleveland, and Gulley, H 269 closes
    a loophole in the statewide uniformity clause of North Carolina's
    concealed handgun permit law under which "units of local government"
    can ban concealed carry in public parks.

    H 270: 'Personal Protection in Restaurants'

    Introduced by Reps. Hilton, Steen, Burr and Cleveland, H 270 closes a
    loophole in North Carolina's concealed handgun law under which
    permit-holders are prohibited from protecting themselves and their
    families in restaurants which serve alcohol. Although gun control
    advocates will probably try to assert otherwise, nothing in the bill
    changes the current prohibition on consuming alcohol while carrying
    firearms.

    S 234: 'Sport Shooting Range Protection'

    Introduced by Sen. Brock, S 234 closes a loophole in the existing
    range protection law under which a range which is forced to relocate
    loses protection against noise and environmental complaints provided
    by the 1997 range protection law, and can be closed due to noise or
    other complaints. Under Brock's bill, a range forced to move due to
    condemnation, rezoning, annexation, road construction or development
    would still be protected.

    S 235: 'Personal Protection in Restaurants'

    Introduced by Sen. Brock, this bill is an identical companion bill to
    H 270 above.

    The good, the bad ...

    Now that the bills have received a "First Reading" on the floor of
    their respective chambers, each has received an assignment to a
    particular committee for a hearing. Make no mistake: With Democrats
    firmly in control of both chambers of the legislature, they will
    likely try to kill pro-gun legislation by denying them hearings. Bills
    which don't get a hearing and which don't pass votes on Second and
    Third Readings on the chamber floor by the May 14 "crossover deadline"
    are dead.

    HOUSE: The three House bills have all been referred to the House
    Judiciary III Committee. While chaired by Rep. Ronnie Sutton, a
    Democrat who has voted with gun owners only 65% of the time, this the
    best committee assignment the bill could have received. While not a
    Second Amendment supporter, Sutton tends to be at least fair in giving
    bills hearings.

    SENATE: The Senate bills will have a tougher time getting hearings.
    Although Brock is on the Judiciary I Committee to which they were
    assigned, committee chair Sen. Martin Nesbitt is a Democrat with a
    only a 68% pro-gun voting record in a chamber historically hostile to
    gun rights.

    ... and the ridiculous

    As detailed in Paul Valone's "Phony Gun Groups"
    series, anti-gun Democrats perpetually try to camouflage their agenda by
    appealing to hunters and sportsmen. Such is the case with SB 329:
    "Right to Hunt," introduced by Sen. David Hoyle. With a mediocre 81%
    pro-gun voting record, Hoyle has not been a consistent supporter of
    the Second Amendment. And while the bill purports to create a "right
    to hunt," the "conditions and restrictions" sound like the disclaimers
    read at the end of a shady radio commercial. Given that Hoyle's
    "right" is subject to any present or future restrictions resulting
    from "laws as enacted by the General Assembly, and rules and
    regulations adopted by an administrative agency to which authority has
    been delegated", the bill represents meaningless posturing.

    'ASSAULT WEAPON' UPDATE TOMORROW

    Tomorrow's GRNC alert will include details and implications of Eric
    Holder's statement today that (surprise), Barack Obama wants to
    re-implement the "assault weapon" ban.

    IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED

    * Contact appropriate committee chairs of committees to which the
    bills have been assigned using links below and tell them the bills
    deserve hearings;

    Dear Representative Sutton:

    H257: 'No Seizure of Lawful Firearms in Emergency', H 269: 'Concealed
    Handgun Permit Valid in Parks' and H 270: 'Personal Protection in
    Restaurants' are all worthy bills that will empower sane and sober NC
    citizens to defend themselves in emergencies.

    Please give these bills your full support and hasten them on through
    to the floor of the General Assembly for passage.

    Sincerely,

    A North Carolina Voter
    - Sen. Martin Nesbitt:


    - Sen. David Hoyle:
