      Exclamation NC Bills for Castle Doctrine and Stand Your Ground before the Senate....Please read!

      There is a bill before the NC General Assembly that will grant NC residents the rights of Castle Doctrine (ability to protect your home) and Stand Your Ground (ability to defend yourself, legally, in public). I contacted the NRA and they confirmed that the legislation is still in process and hasn't been approved/denined yet. I urge you to please visit the link below. If you agree with it, I would strongly urge you to contact your representative and have them support this bill.

      Thank you for your time,

      Kevin

      According to the NRA as of 1p today, the legislation is still open and hasn't been shot down yet.

      Here is the page to check the status of the bill. http://www.ncleg.net/gascripts/BillL...9&BillID=H1131

      Here is the list of people to email.
      Deborah.Ross@ncleg.net
      Melanie.Goodwin@ncleg.net
      Paul.Stam@ncleg.net
      Bonner.Stiller@ncleg.net

      Feel free to copy and paste the below note to include when emailing the above people, or feel free to write your own. Also, if and when it goes through, I’ll send everyone a list of the next committee until this thing is law. We’re gunning (no pun intended) for December 1st of this year.

      Dear Representative,

      As a concerned citizen of North Carolina I have become aware of H.R.1131 that is now before you. I am writing you to let you know that I need your support for this bill. We, as North Carolina citizens should have the right to meet force with force and protect ourselves without fear of civil penalty if found criminally innocent. We should also carry the right to protect ourselves when outside of the home and not submit to a “duty to retreat”. If you are already a supporter of this bill, then I would like to thank you for defending my rights. If you do not support this bill, then I ask you to at least put yourself in the shoes of the common citizen who could one day find themselves in the unfortunate situation of justifiable self defense only to be followed by an unwarranted civil suit. So as stated before, please vote yes on H.R.1131. Thank you.

      The Senate version of Castle Doctrine passed and moved to the House where it is stuck in committee.

      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 ahearing; 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

      i have emailed rep.ross in rthe past & always get the same response. she never indicates she won't move the bill forward, she just never does.

      this bill won't advance as long as she is the committee chair-person.
