North Carolina NRA members must act to make sure important lawsuit legislation is signed into law!

Yesterday, August 5, the North Carolina House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed H.B. 622, the NRA-backed measure to stop reckless lawsuits against firearm manufacturers. By a vote of 93-11, the House agreed to prevent municipalities from filing politically-motivated lawsuits that attempt to hold gun makers liable for the criminal misuse of their products. The bill now heads to Governor Michael Easley`s (D) desk for his signature. You can make a difference by encouraging the Governor to sign H.B. 622! You can reach Governor Easley at (919) 733-5811.
