Contact Your State Representative Today and Urge Their Opposition to HB 1192

Anti-gun legislators in the North Carolina House have introduced House Bill 1192, a bill that would gut the “Stand Your Ground” provisions of House Bill 650, the NRA-backed omnibus firearm bill that was enacted just last year.  Please contact your state Representative TODAY and urge him or her to stand up for the right to self-defense for law-abiding North Carolinians, and oppose HB 1192.

House Bill 1192, sponsored by state Representative Alma Adams (D-58), was introduced in an apparent attempt to exploit the Trayvon Martin shooting in Florida that has received so much sensationalistic anti-gun coverage from the media.  This bill, if passed and enacted into law would eliminate the protections established in HB 650 for a law-abiding citizen who uses a firearm for self-defense if faced with a violent criminal attacker while away from the home. The NRA strongly opposes this bill, and will work to defeat this legislation along with any other attempts to weaken self-defense laws in North Carolina.
