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.

- Leave the grounds as you found them. Take your trash with you.
Visit legislators: Plan to arrive at 10:00 AM to allow time to visit your legislators and the speaker of the house. Stop by the GRNC table where we will have information on your legislators, contact information, and a list of the current GRNC issues.
