GRNC holds Republicans’ feet to the fire (again) - 2A Rights


Show up on April 24th or Sign the Petition


Gun Rights Supporters:


Last year, as House Bill 189 for permit-less concealed carry stalled, Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger said: “We've done away with the pistol purchase permit, which was the No. 1 goal of many of the gun rights groups for a long period of time. I just don't know if there's a need for us to delve into additional issues dealing with guns and people's 2nd Amendment rights.”


While partially true – and we thank Republicans for passing the pistol purchase permit repeal – Phil Berger is effectively saying that he believes HE should decide which of your rights you “need.”


Meanwhile, Florida and Nebraska, Louisiana, and South Carolina passed constitutional carry, bringing the number of states with permit-less carry to 29. Yes, North Carolina now lies within the minority of states which continue to deny this basic civil right to their citizens.


Thanks to Berger and other “you-have-enough-rights” naysayers at the General Assembly, HB 189 continues to languish in the House Rules Committee while North Carolina falls behind other freedom-loving red states.


Yes, North Carolina Republicans are falling behind even their own party in restoring your Second Amendment freedoms.


GRNC holds Republicans’ feet to the fire (again)


As always, Grass Roots North Carolina will follow through on its promises by delivering a petition with thousands of signatures calling for constitutional carry to Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger on April 24, on the opening day of the second year of the two-year legislative session. 


And unlike certain other phony gun groups which exist solely to take your money, when GRNC delivers a message to the NC General Assembly, legislators listen.


If HB 189 doesn’t pass in this session, the bill will be dead.


What we need YOU to do RIGHT NOW


ATTEND the April 24 petition presentation: Please RSVP to DirectorOfDevelopment@GRNC.org to confirm you attend. Take a day from work if you need to. Showing Berger we are serious is a lot easier if a few dozen constitutional carry advocates show up at his office.


Constitutional carry Petition presentation details:


WHAT: A limited gathering to present a hand truck with thousands of petitions to Senate President Pro Tem Phil Berger, thereby delivering a clear message that Republicans should “remember who ‘brung ‘em to the dance.” We will also do a limited distribution of talking points to relevant Republicans.

WHEN: April 24, 10:00 AM EDT

WHERE: NC General Assembly Printed Bills office, 16 West Jones Street, Raleigh, NC 27601. SEE MAP AT BOTTOM BELOW.

WHY: To tell legislators loud and clear that you will not let them dictate your civil rights


ASK OTHERS TO SIGN the petition: Even if you have signed (and we need you to sign if you haven’t), please pass the link along to like-minded friends and relatives, asking them to sign the petition.

TIME IS GROWING SHORT. You can find the constitutional carry petition by going to: grncalert.com/pass-constitutional-carry-2023-h189/ 


You will note that I’m not asking for money. (At least not right now.) What GRNC needs – what YOU need – is to SHOW UP at the NC General Assembly at 16 West Jones St., Raleigh, NC 27601 on April 24 at 10:00 AM.


Please note that no legislative experience is required. We will have volunteers to guide you, including distributing literature to legislators.


With your help, GRNC will continue its nearly three decades of victory.


Armatissimi e liberissimi,
