Update: Important Firearms Legislation Being Intentionally Stalled in the North Carolina Senate!

Thursday, June 9, 2011

Contact Your State Senator Immediately!

As the end of the 2011 legislative session is quickly approaching, the NRA continues to work diligently to protect your Second Amendment rights in Raleigh. Senate Bill 594, an emergency powers bill introduced by state Senator Doug Berger (D-7) has been stalled since its introduction.

Even though this legislation is of great importance to law-abiding gun owners, the Senate Republican leadership is currently preventing S 594 from being considered, even telling Senate colleagues not to offer this language as an amendment to other firearm-related bills.

Senate Bill 594, an emergency powers bill introduced by state Senator Doug Berger (D-7), would ensure that our Right to Keep and Bear Arms cannot be suspended through gun confiscation during a declared state of emergency as happened in Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina.

Time is running out - it is critical that you act quickly and let your state Senator know how important this legislation is.  Please contact your state Senator and urge him or her to convince Senate leadership to bring S 594 to the Senate floor.
