To My State Representative and State Senator:
Whereas: The right of the people to keep and bear arms is protected by the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution; and
Whereas: This inalienable right clearly includes the right to carry a handgun for self-defense in public places, and;
Whereas: “Gun Free Zones” have done nothing prevent criminals, extremists, or the mentally ill from committing acts of violence; in fact, they are the places most frequently targeted. “Gun Free Zones” only make potential victims out of law-abiding citizens by prohibiting them from defending themselves;
Therefore: I urge you to support a prohibition against “Gun Free Zones” on state property, including public colleges and universities, at every legislative opportunity.
NC Gun Rights will keep me informed about your votes.
