THAT is what they will be doing in Raleigh Thursday. As the “honorables” stagger back into town for their litigation-inspired special session, the good folks at Grass Roots NC will be waiting for them:
LET’S REMIND OUR REPUBLICANS WHO
PUT THEM IN OFFICE.
Remember in the last election how the Republican candidates couldn’t get enough love from pro-second amendment North Carolinians? Remember how they promised to be the stalwart guardians of your gun rights?
As expected, they have forgotten who “brung ’em to the dance.” We know this because House Bill 746 is stuck in the Senate — the result of petty quibbling and inactivity. Politicians are always at risk of becoming complacent (especially when their party holds a supermajority in both the house and the senate), and they sometimes need to be reminded of who they work for.
Worse yet: we know that Michael Bloomberg’s out-of-state money has been hard at work in North Carolina, with a few well-paid operatives whispering fear and doubt into the ears of our elected leaders. This isn’t a new game for them, since they prognosticate doom about every pro-Second Amendment measure that comes up … and when these pro-gun bills are passed into law, their fears of doom are proven to be completely unfounded. Still, we want to make sure that responsible, law-abiding gun owners are being seen and heard by their elected leaders. Let’s remind them that rich New Yorkers and a few paid minions don’t speak for us in our state legislature.
The General Assembly returns for a special session on Thursday August 3, and we’ve planned a gun rights rally for the mall area between the Legislature and the Legislative Office Building. Most importantly: we need YOU there to join the chorus of North Carolina’s law-abiding, responsible gun owners. Together, we can encourage our leaders to move House Bill 746 in this special session.
The demonstration will take place on Thursday August 3 at 11:00 AM. This will be a safe, fun, family-oriented event where we will introduce a new figure to North Carolina’s political scene: Squish the Magic RINO!Immediate Action Required?
- Attend the rally! It will be located on the grass mall just north of the Legislative building at 16 W. Jones St., Raleigh. The rally will begin at 11:00 AM, but it’s wise to get there early to alleviate parking concerns.[…]
Sooooooo — if you find yourself around downtown Raleigh around 11 am Thursday — and you’ve got some time to kill ….
