Help Us DEFEAT Remaining Gun Control Provisions

Our friends at Gun Owners of America tell us they have Good news and bad news regarding the Senate “compromise” on the leftist reauthorization of S. 3623, the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (also known as VAWA).

The good news is that GOA was able to pressure Senators to take out a lot of terrible anti-liberty provisions which were passed by the House. The bad news is not all of the anti-liberty provisions were removed.

We need you to contact both of your Senators today and tell them to remove all anti-liberty language.

Domestic violence is not a partisan issue.  But congressional Democrats want to use it as a vehicle to enact their gun control agenda.

Suffice it to say, the bill does nothing to help the abused protect themselves.  Rather, it showers money on special interest groups who support anti-liberty politicians.

Instead of empowering people to defend and protect themselves, this bill seeks to keep victims as victims and deny them the ability to learn how to overcome their victimhood by exercising their Constitutional and God-given right of self-defense through a firearm.

Stand up for what you believe in and tell your Senators to oppose this bill!

S. 3623 is Picking Up Steam – FAST

As of now, this anti-liberty bill has 22 sponsors – of which, 11 are GOP and 11 are Democrats. Two of these are Sen. Tillis, Thomas [R-NC] and Sen. Burr, Richard [R-NC]

Our supposedly “pro-freedom” Senators.

Suggested Subject: "Remove Anti-liberty language from VAWA"

Dear Senator:

I have been informed that while unconstitutional red flag gun confiscation orders, federal grants to fund firearm seizures, and the expansion of the unconstitutional Lautenberg Amendment – which would permanently strip Americans of constitutional rights for misdemeanors – have all been removed from S. 3623

However, anti-liberty language remains; there are sections that mandate the FBI and prosecutors use their resources to persecute Americans who are deemed to be "prohibited persons," even though 9 of 10 of these FBI determinations are flat-out FBI errors. In addition, section 1103 authorizes the Justice Department to make special appointments and deputizations to prosecute new gun control laws.

If you are going to claim to be on the side of freedom, gun owners, and our common sense civil rights, then you have to oppose this measure and its anti-liberty language. You must oppose S. 3623. I will be monitoring this issue through Grass Roots North Carolina legislative alerts.



We Need Alert Writers In order to continue to offer these critical email alerts in a timely and effective fashion, GRNC needs more alert writers. If you have general writing ability, basic computer skills, a desire to defend the Bill of Rights, and a few hours a week, GRNC would love to bring you on board as an important member of our writing team. Note that a few hours a week, sometimes a little less, sometimes a little more, is a small trade off for the immense satisfaction you’ll feel after you have direct involvement in killing anti-gun bills, expanding gun rights, and stopping short the political careers of gun-grabbing legislators. Contact Us Please, we need you. If you feel at all called to pitch in and defend the Second Amendment, there is nothing better you could do than volunteer for North Carolina’s most effective, no-compromise gun rights organization, Grass Roots North Carolina. If interested, we’d love to hear from you, please email: with the subject line: “Alert Writer Inquiry.” Thanks!

Contact your Senators now and tell them to get off or stay off VAWA.
