Dr. Dan's Freedom Forum

ALERT: Special Program THIS WEEKEND on Freedom Forum Radio

Paul Valone of GRNC Discusses New NC Gun Rights Law (HB 937)

After months of political game playing and puerile posturing, the North Carolina Legislature finally passed HB 937, and it has been signed into law by Governor Pat McCrory.

HB 937 (entitled “Amend Various Firearms Laws”) is a major advance in North Carolina to protect the 2nd Amendment Rights guaranteed to each of us by The Constitution.


In summary, the primary provisions of HB 937 allow persons with a valid concealed carry permit to possess and carry a firearm as follows:

  1. in restaurants serving alcohol as long as the person with the firearm does not consume alcohol and is not himself intoxicated
  2. in venues that charge admission such as movie theaters and concerts
  3. in parades and funerals
  4. on educational property and state-owned property (certain conditions apply)

The law also provides for other protections:

Public Service Announcement – Survival Expo


Public Service Announcement

August 1, 2013

The New Bern area has suffered the effects of many hurricanes. There’s no reason to think we’ve finished dealing with them. In addition there’s always the possibility that we’ll have to deal with longer term emergencies. For example, are you prepared to cope if solar flares or a cyber-attack took down the electricity grid along the east coast for an extended period of time? How well could you deal with the situation if a terrorist attack shut down the distribution system, and the grocery stores emptied out, and resupply were delayed for a couple of weeks?

These are not pleasant things to think about, but being prepared can make a huge difference for your family. For that reason, the Coastal Carolina Taxpayers Association is sponsoring a Survival Expo on Saturday, August 10th at 2 p.m. at the Highland Park Christian Church, 905 Carolina Avenue, Trent Woods. There will be speakers and displays.

Stanley Kite, Craven County Emergency Services Director, will speak on what government can do to help and what you need to do to look after yourself and your family. Brad Cummings will speak on being financially prepared. Don Murdoch will discuss providing food and water with emphasis on what is needed if the grocery shelves are empty for a period of time. Larry Herwig will speak about whether to stay at home or leave in various circumstances and how to defend yourself and your home if the need should arise. Matt Schwob will talk about how alliances among neighbors can help. Mark Jones will speak about goods to barter.

It’s better to be prepared and not need it, than to need it and not be prepared. The Expo is open to all. We want the people of our community to be ready to look after themselves and help their neighbors.

Raynor James, PR Chair, Coastal Carolina Taxpayers Association (CCTA)

“Impeach Obama” Nationwide Protest August 6th

Overpass Protest Movement Is Gaining Momentum

Grassroots are taking a stand. Literally. They are standing on overpasses all over the country with signs and flags showing drivers below and the media our collective outrage at this POTUS! And it is getting noticed. One can only hope eventually both the Republican Party and the Democrat Party will take notice, too. We have had enough!

Below is an article by Alan Keyes on the effectiveness of the overpass movement as a “bucket Brigade”. He says we must use impeachment as a litmus test for candidates in the 2014 election.
