A Message from North Carolina Rep. Larry Pittman

I have known Larry Pittman since 2009. I will probably always think of him as a minister first and a politician second. I believe that the clergy should not hold public office: their role is to provide guidance to the people to produce moral and virtuous citizens. If the clergy does their work correctly, by extension we will have moral and virtuous politicians (from the 5000 Year Leap).

After listening to Rep. Pittman yesterday, I have changed my viewpoint. North Carolina needs more “politicians” like him. North Carolina also need more people who will stand up and support statesmen like him.

GRNC Alert 2-1-13: Attend GRNC Freedom Rally on Feb. 5!

Show politicians you mean business!

Your gun rights are under siege! It is time to demonstrate to the world that you will no longer tolerate such attacks. GRNC is putting a rally under the office windows of legislators at the General Assembly on Feb. 5 at 12:00 PM. Yes, you will have to take time off from work, but it is crucial that we hold the rally at a time and place where politicians and the media can’t ignore you!

When: Feb. 5 at 12:00 PM. Better yet, arrive early and make “Four Stops for Freedom” by dropping in on your state House Representative and Senator, plus the Speaker of the House and the President Pro Tem of the Senate. To help you do so, we will have a table set up by 10:00 AM at the rally site to help you identify your reps, provide maps of the office complex, and offer suggested talking points. To identify who your reps are, beforehand, go to:


Where: The rally will be held at the Halifax Mall between the Legislative Building and the Legislative Office Building in Raleigh. The General Assembly is at 16 West Jones Street, Raleigh, NC 27601. The mall can be entered either by entering the front of the Legislative Building from Jones St. and going straight through it and out the back, or directly from Wilmington St.

GRNC Alert 1-24-13: GRNC joins National Coalition response to Feinstein’s lies

Statement by GRNC president Paul Valone

“In the press conference held by Dianne Feinstein today, Democrats cynically promulgated myths about semi-automatic firearms they have known for decades to be false. As one of the founders of the now thirty-seven (37) organizations of the “National Coalition to Stop the Gun Ban,” representing millions of Americans, Grass Roots North Carolina refutes lies being fed to the American people. We reiterate: We will not compromise on the Feinstein proposals, and any legislator who supports them will be the target of coordinated Coalition action.”


  • Without you the Obama/Biden/Feinstein proposal is more likely to pass. Help prevent this by calling AND emailing Senators Burr and Hagan, and your US House Representative:
  • Support GRNC: GRNC needs your support to help combat the efforts against your rights as gun owners. Join or renew your membership! http://www.grnc.org/join-grnc/join-grnc-online
  • SIGN THE “STOP THE GUN BAN” PETITION: Go to: www.StopTheGunBan.org Whether or not you have already signed it, forward this to others and tell them to sign it too.

Letter to the Citizenry from Sheriff Jerry Jones

Citizens of Franklin County North Carolina,

As most of you are aware I attended a meeting at Fargo’s Restaurant in Zebulon some weeks back. The purpose of the meeting was simple, to provide clarification to the citizenry as to where your Sheriffs stand with regards to your 2nd Amendment Rights to Keep and Bear Arms. Particular interest was given to the possibility of any new Federal Laws and/or restrictions and how each Sheriff would react should such measures be taken. Since that community meeting I have received countless emails and letters from concerned citizens within Franklin County. In response to these concerns please allow me, as the Sheriff of Franklin County, to make the following declarations.

As the Sheriff of Franklin County North Carolina I have sworn an oath, as have the men and women who serve under me, to “Support and maintain the Constitution and laws of the United States, and the Constitution and laws of North Carolina not inconsistent therewith”. When I swore to this oath it was not intended on my part to be merely ceremonious in nature. Those words have meaning. They represent the very basis of what makes our society different from so many others worldwide. We have established a form of Government which derives its powers from the governed, as is clearly stated in our Constitution. Our founding fathers recognized that each of us is born equally into this world with certain rights. These rights were put to paper in clear and concise wording for all to understand, even future generations.
