Self-Defense in North Carolina Under Attack

Wednesday, June 6, 2012

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. 

Please contact your state Representative TODAY and urge him or her to oppose HB 1192.Contact information for your state legislators can be found by clicking here.
