Action Item: Senator Peter Brunstetter, a Republican, is trying to make it a felony offense in NC to willfully discharge a weapon in any building or vehicle, including your home, to harm another or incite fear. Big government Republicans are just as bad and dangerous as a Liberal. So, with this short bill, Senator Brunstetter is seeking to overturn the Castle Doctrine in NC.
Call Brunstetter and tell him to rescind Senate Bill 124.§14-34.10. Which states: Discharge firearm within enclosure to do harm or incite fear. Unless covered under some other provision of law providing greater punishment, any person who willfully or wantonly discharges or attempts to discharge a firearm within any building, structure, motor vehicle, or other conveyance, erection, or enclosure with the intent to do harm or incite fear shall be punished as a Class E felon.
He and his progressive friends have no right to trample upon our second amendment rights and make felons of us for protecting ourselves or our loved ones. We all have an inalienable righ, enshrined in our US Constitution, to keep and bear arms. No government or bureaucrat has the authority to take that away. We will actively seek another to run against him in the next election.

Your webmaster has rec’d several emails asking about how to get Magpul to move to WNC. The emails suggest a campaign to get our WNC reps to work to do so.
We are not asking that North Carolina use corporate welfare as Asheville Tea Party does not support it. Reps can help in pointing out the advantages of moving to WNC, like how they are working to lower taxes and cut regulations. When you email your rep please, tell them you do not support corporate welfare. All businesses should be treated the same. Citizens of WNC can email Magpul to tell them the citizens of WNC would welcome them moving here.
Phone: 1 877-462-4785
WNC would be a good spot for them. Especially, if we get rid to all the arms laws in NC.
