Senate Bill 928, the “Castle Doctrine” self-defense bill, remains bogged down in the House. This bill was referred to three separate committees, the first being the House Judiciary I Committee. That committee is chaired by anti-gun State Representative Deborah Ross (D-38), and she appears to be unwilling to set a date for a hearing. Please contact Representative Ross and urge her to allow this critical legislation—which received overwhelming, bi-partisan support in the Senate in May—to be heard. Representative Ross can be reached by phone at 919-733-5773 or e-mail Deborah.Ross@ncleg.net.
Also, please contact the following members of the House Democratic Leadership team, who have histories of supporting our Right to Keep and Bear Arms:
Speaker Pro Tem.:
State Representative William Wainwright
State Representative Hugh Holliman
State Representative Bruce Goforth
Please thank these Democratic leaders for having supported the Second Amendment in the past, and to do what they can to help bring SB 928 up for consideration.
