    Castle Doctrine Stonewalling in Committee NC

    GRNC Alert 05-30-09:

    Castle Doctrine Stonewalling in Committee

    House Judiciary I Chair waiting for "direction from her leadership"
    before proceeding

    SB 928, "The Castle Doctrine," is now languishing in the House
    Judiciary I Committee.

    Committee chair, Rep. Deborah K. Ross (GRNC 0 Star, Wake) indicated
    to GRNC legislative representatives that she considers your input "of
    little value," and was waiting for direction from "her leadership"
    before scheduling.

    So to borrow a line out of a classic sci-fi movie, "take me to your
    leader." Actually we should thank Rep. Ross for letting us know to
    whom she wishes to pass the buck. It is time to let Speaker Joe
    Hackney know that he needs to direct Ross to schedule SB 928 for a
    hearing; since she doesn't seem to know if she should without his
    "leadership."

    Act now. We can see the goal line, time to push this one on in for a
    touchdown.

    IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED

    * Contact Speaker of the NC House, Joe Hackney. 919-733-3451,
    Joe.Hackney@ncleg.net

    Dear Speaker Hackney:

    Rep. Deborah Ross, chair of the House Judiciary I Committee, is
    waiting to hear from leadership before deciding on scheduling SB 928,
    "The Castle Doctrine" for a committee hearing. I urge you to direct
    her to do so and to give it a fair and honest hearing. It is too
    important that this worthy bill that will protect our citizens from
    dangerous criminals and abuses of the legal system after a case of
    self defense be passed into law.

    The Castle Doctrine is an important concept that has proven effective
    in the protection of citizens in the number of states that have
    already implemented it. It is vital that you throw your influence
    behind the interests of the honest citizens of this state and allow
    them to protect themselves from criminals.

    I trust that you wish to protect the lives and interests of the law
    abiding voters of North Carolina rather than enable the criminal
    element. Provide leadership in supporting SB 928. I will be following
    your actions on this bill through Grass Roots North Carolina.

    Sincerely,

    A Concerned North Carolina Voter

    Yes, the world has gotten smaller, but it will always be too big to be ruled by unelected bureaucrats.

    Anyone want to post what they sent to their rep?

    Well since she is my Rep, and seems to value my (and other's) input so lowly. Perhaps someone else is going to value her position a bit higher.
    Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.
