GRNC - Time To Wake Up The Republicans In The NC General Assembly

Grass Roots North Carolina sent out an alert last night requesting that people call Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland) between 9am and 11am this morning. They are also asking people to send an email to him asking them where is the progress on gun rights.

From GRNC:

Republicans in power-induced lackadaisical mode

Are Republicans lost in the spoils of power, just laying back and enjoying their super majority at the expense of good gun bills being left to languish?  Why the reluctance to move on anything pro-Second Amendment?  These are good questions to ask of House Speaker Tim Moore.

GRNC President Paul Valone has hand delivered the following letter to Speaker Moore.  Please see the link below regarding his disappointment on the lack of follow through on pro-gun bills.

What’s going on with Pro Second Amendment bills?

If you are scratching your head and wondering the same; it’s time to pass that question along to Speaker Moore.


  • EMAIL AND CALL SPEAKER TIM MOORE: Please make the phone calls on THURSDAY, BETWEEN 9 AND 11:00 AM, if at all possible. If not, call whenever you can. 

  • Ask the Speaker, “What’s going on with our pro-Second Amendment legislation? Have the Republicans gotten so lax in their power, that they’re writing off the gun voters who put them there?”

  • Email him at: and call using this number: 919-733-3451. Use the copy/paste text provided below to send the email. When calling, if you are sent to voicemail, please leave a message.


Suggested Subject: "What’s going on with pro Second Amendment legislation?"  

Dear Speaker Moore:

Now that Republicans are enjoying their super-majority spoils, it seems the legislature has become lackadaisical in pushing through any pro-Second Amendment legislation.  This is deeply disappointing to me as a gun rights voter.  We expect our representatives to display the same character and conviction in Raleigh that they claim to have while on the campaign trail.

As other states move forward on pro-gun bills such as constitutional and campus carry, North Carolina seems to have dropped the ball on these very same issues.  Why is that?

The need for passing House Bills 438, 588 and 746 is obvious, and the window of opportunity is closing! Fourteen states now have Constitutional Carry without any dire consequences.  New Hampshire became “Lucky 13”, beating North Carolina to the finish line.  Georgia Governor Nathan Deal recently signed campus carry legislation into law, so once again, another state passes North Carolina.

The naysayers continue to be proven wrong in their dire predictions regarding the results of pro-gun legislation.  As you rest on your laurels, other states are moving forward and advancing gun rights.  So I ask of you, “What is happening with pro-Second Amendment legislation in our state?”

I will be monitoring your actions through Grass Roots North Carolina legislative alerts.
