Three Pro-Gun Bills in the NC Senate


Three pro-gun senate bills have been introduced in the North Carolina Legislature. These are all important bills that will help preserve your right to keep and bear arms in North Carolina. They include:

  • S394: The Preemption Affirmation Act will not only make it more difficult for municipal governments to restrict firearms, but it will impose financial penalties on municipal politicians that try to pass legislation that violates your rights
  • S641: The Concealed Handgun Permit Standardization Act cleans up some of the messy language introduced by the NRA that allows sheriffs to capriciously and wantonly delay concealed handgun applications.
  • S394: The NC Firearms Freedom Act asserts the right of the State of North Carolina to regulate the commerce of firearms manufactured in, and sold in North Carolina. Since these arms are not being sold in interstate commerce, this bill will nullify any attempts to regulate this intrastate commerce by the federal government. Attempts by the federal government to interfere in this lawful commerce will be punishable by the State of North Carolina as a criminal offense.

Grass Roots North Carolina encourages you to contact Senators Berger, Apodaca, and your senator (see below), and insist that these important bills receive prompt hearings.

The pilot was locked out of the cockpit.


Prosecutor: Passengers shrieked as jet crashed into Alps

That phrase finally revealed the full horror of the crash of Germanwings flight 9525. Co-pilot Andreas Lubitz waited for the pilot to leave the cockpit, then locked the door to prevent his re-entry. After which Lubitz, for reasons unknown and perhaps unknowable, deliberately steered the jet into a harrowing 8 minute plunge ending in an explosive 434 mph impact with a rocky mountainside. 150 men, women and children met an immediate, unthinkably violent death.

Lubitz, in his single-minded madness, couldn't be stopped because anyone who could change the jet's disastrous course was locked out.

It's hard to imagine the growing feelings of fear and helplessness that the passengers felt as the unforgiving landscape rushed up to meet them. Hard - but not impossible.

Because America is in trouble. We feel the descent in the pits of our stomachs. We hear the shake and rattle of structures stressed beyond their limits. We don't know where we're going anymore, but do know it isn't good. And above all, we feel helpless because Barack Obama has locked us out.

Is Obama obstructing Christian president of Nigeria to help the Muslim opponent?

Hat tip to James Simpson at Accuracy in Media for sharing this exclusive story.

Simpson story brings up a very, very disturbing question, which once again must be filed under just whose side is Obama on?

As background, while Michelle Obama was promoting her hashtag campaign to #bringbackourgirls after Boko Haram’s mass kidnapping, the Obama administration was working behind the scenes to completely undermine Nigeria’s efforts to combat the terrorists.

Simpson writes, “Obama refused to sell Nigeria arms and supplies critical to the fight, and stepped in to block other Western allies from doing so. The administration also denied Nigeria intelligence on Boko Haram from drones operating in the area. While Boko Haram was kidnapping school girls, the U.S. cut petroleum purchases from Nigeria to zero, plunging the nation’s economy into turmoil and raising concerns about its ability to fund its battle against the terrorists. Nigeria responded by cancelling a military training agreement between the two countries.”

Victim Says a Simple Question About Michael Brown Case Resulted in Shocking Incident Seen 1:40 Into This Video

Via Joe

Police investigators say a white male was riding a St. Louis MetroLink train on Monday night when he was approached by a group of black men and asked what he thought about the Aug. 9, 2014, shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Chaos quickly ensued.

The 43-year-old man told police he replied that he hadn’t put that much thought into it, KTVI-TV reports.

That’s when one of the men, dressed in a red shirt and hat, started punching the victim repeatedly in the face. After the first suspect got a number of punches in, a second suspect in a gray jacket is seen sneaking in a shot as well. The suspect in red delivered a final kick before all three suspects got off the train.

The Muslim Brotherhood in America Plans for Subversion Part 4 of a series

Mike Scruggs

The extensive Muslim Brotherhood (MB) plan to subvert American society and government and destroy its Western based civilization is not a conspiracy theory.

It is an FBI documented fact based on a treasure trove of Muslim Brotherhood records, communications, and planning papers confiscated during a 2004 FBI raid on the Annandale, Virginia, home of a Muslim Brotherhood agent plotting to sabotage the 4.3-mile Chesapeake Bay Bridge in Maryland. The documents confirmed what FBI and CIA agents had long believed—that the Muslim Brotherhood’s primary objective in the United States is to destroy our Constitutional system of laws and implement Islamic Law (Sharia) under a global Islamic government.

Muslim Brotherhood ties to the Hamas Palestinian terrorist organization were confirmed during the 2007 Holy Land Foundation Trial. The Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) was the largest Muslim Charity in North America. The U.S. Attorney’s office in Dallas, however, found overwhelming evidence that most HLF funds were being funneled to Hamas terrorists engaged in violent Jihad against Israel.

 Evidence continues to mount that the Muslim Brotherhood, the largest Islamic political organization in the world, is engaged in “Civilization Jihad” against Western culture and governments. Their primary methods are deceit and stealth infiltration of Western governments and institutions, but they fully approve of violent Jihad when it furthers their plans and purposes. The Brotherhood (Ikhwan) created Hamas and Islamic Jihad as terrorist arms and have considerable influence over al-Qaeda and even the Iranian-backed Shiite Hezbollah terrorist forces.

Hamas and ISIS have the common objective of worldwide political and religious domination by Islam and Sharia law. Hamas is not as psychopathic as ISIS, but it still kills Israeli civilians, including children, by rockets and suicide bombs.

 According to investigative journalist and author, Paul Sperry, every major Islamic organization in the United States is under Muslim Brotherhood control. All are engaged in informational deception about Islam and Sharia Law and play some part in MB plans for civilization Jihad against American culture, law, and Judeo-Christian influence. 

 In 1980, there were 481 officially recognized mosques in the United States. By 2005, there were 1,209, and the number is still growing. More than 80 percent of them were financed by oil money from Saudi Arabia and are under the control of MB front organizations in America. They teach fundamentalist Wahhabi doctrines that are inherently anti-Jewish and anti-Christian. Mosques are much more political than American churches, and the imams often excoriate Jewish and Christian influences on American foreign policy. Sermons that are given in Arabic are especially aggressive in calling for Jihad against Israel, the United States, and Western civilization. This worldview is also taught in MB controlled schools.

 The Muslim Brotherhood plan to dominate North America has five phases. The first phase is to establish Muslim institutions and implant key MB leadership on a very discreet or secret basis.

 The second phase is to gradually escalate the visibility of Muslim influence in society by gaining public sympathy and recognition by government, religious, and academic institutions.  This includes infiltration of various levels and sectors of the government, including the Armed Forces. The final part of this phase is forming a secret shadow government within the government. Meanwhile our news and educational media are already paralyzed by political correctness and multiculturalism.

 Phase three is now in its initial stages. It is to escalate their demands using mass media and the influence of infiltrated government, educational, and religious organizations. Planting of mosques and schools will be more aggressive, using American tolerance to advance Islam’s intolerance for all other religious and worldviews.

 Phase four is open confrontation with government through political pressure and mass demonstrations. This phase includes training in the use of weapons both at home and abroad.

 Bribery and intimidation of political, civil, business, education, and media leaders will escalate throughout phases two through four. Wherever possible, they will use our democratic values to defeat us.  

 Phase five is to seize power and establish an Islamic nation. The U.S. Constitution and system of laws would be replaced by Sharia and institutionalized Muslim dominance over American culture, religion, and the economy.

 FBI archives from the 2004 Annandale raid are thoroughly informative on MB subversion and infiltration objectives. Higher immigration and birth rates are cited as an important tool. Assimilation, except for the purpose of infiltration and political and social influence, is not a goal. One of the goals of the MB is to increase the Islamic identity and doctrinal adherence of all American Muslims. Additional American mosques will symbolize Islamic dominance.

 Co-opting American political leadership by relentless propaganda and misinformation on the nature of Islam is a major strategy for MB success. They have been so successful at this that FBI and CIA reports contrary to the counterfactual propaganda image of Islam as “a religion of peace and tolerance hijacked by a few radicals” are not welcomed by top levels of American political leadership.

 Subverting the U.S. educational system is a major goal. Their plan takes advantage of the slavish American media and academic preoccupation with multiculturalism, diversity, tolerance, and political correctness. This even includes controlling the language of the debate, eliminating terms like “terrorism.”

 Considerable emphasis is placed on infiltrating and neutralizing American religious institutions! The most vulnerable are those whose doctrinal standards have eroded to accommodate universalism and theological pluralism.

 The lure of billions in oil money is being used to infiltrate American financial institutions by demanding Sharia compliant financial instruments and board representation.  This financial Trojan Horse could severely compromise our banking system and economic independence.

 Most MB subversion and propaganda techniques are strikingly similar to Cold War Communist and New Left methodology.  Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals must be almost as popular as the teachings of Muhammad with MB ideologues. The techniques of leftist “community organization” are prominent: unremitting claims of victimization, continual escalation of demands, a constant stream of lawsuits (lawfare), and relentless smearing of critics with almost automatic charges of racism, bigotry, xenophobia, and Islamophobia.

Please Don’t Awaken the Sleeping Church (Gory picture warning)

Via Billy

Recently on I read an article entitled: A Global Slaughter of Christians, but America’s Churches Stay Silent. It was written by a Kirsten Powers. I don’t know anything about this lady but she did posit some thoughts that American Christians should be thinking about and probably haven’t a clue about.

Anyone who has read my material in recent years realizes that I have grave questions about what the Church in this country is doing (and isn’t doing). The Church today seems to be submerged in what I would call a wait for the rapture, just be nice, the Lord’s in control and so we do nothing theology. That’s about the briefest way I can describe it and keep it civil.

Powers states in her article: “Christians in the Middle East and Africa are being slaughtered, tortured, raped, kidnapped, beheaded, and forced to flee the birthplace of Christianity. One would think this horror might be consuming the pulpits and pews of American churches. Not so. The silence has been nearly deafening.”

Fast and Furious Cover-up Rewarded in Appointment of New ATF Director

Via David

On Friday, March 20, 2015, B. Todd Jones, the Director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF,) announced his resignation. Mr. Jones's departure comes on the heels of the disastrous attempt by the ATF to ban a common rifle ammunition, yet another federal sub rosa effort at gun control through governmental constriction of the ammunition supply.  The real news is Mr. Jones's replacement, although you would not know that from any mainstream reporting.

The announced new Acting Director is the current Deputy Director, Thomas Brandon, a man with an apparently secret history at the ATF.  In news dispatches of March 20th, Mr. Brandon is described blandly by the AP, CNN and ABC as a 26-year veteran at the agency who was appointed Deputy Director in 2011.  This gives the impression of an earnest, knowledgeable, hard working civil servant, does it not? 

Perhaps all of the professional reporters are too pressed for time these days to perform a basic Google search.  Or, perhaps not a single so-called journalist has the brain capacity to remember a shameful, deadly national disaster called Fast and Furious.

Kansas to allow concealed guns without permit

Via avordvet

Kansas will join a handful of other states that allow their residents to carry concealed firearms without a permit after a bill backed by the National Rifle Association was approved, The Associated press reported.

Republican Gov. Sam Brownback is expected to sign the bill despite some lawmakers' apprehensions about the state dropping its requirement that anyone seeking to carry a concealed firearm undergo at least eight hours of training. According to the NRA, Kansas would become the fifth state to allow concealed carry without a permit everywhere within its borders.

Putin is following a blueprint that dates back to Philip of Macedon.

Via David

Nothing that Vladimir Putin has done in gobbling up territories of the former Soviet Union is new. In fact, he simply apes every tyrant’s time-honored four-step plan of aggression.


From Philip of Macedon to Napoleon, aggressors did not necessarily have a grand timetable for creating an empire. Instead, they went at it ad hoc. They took as much as they could at any given time; then backed away for a bit, if they sensed strong opposition was building — only to go back on the offensive when vigilance waned.

Hitler did not realistically believe in 1936 that he would within five years create an empire from the Atlantic to the Volga. Instead, he started out by moving incrementally — in the Rhineland, Austria, and Czechoslovakia — testing where he might grab land without a war, always both surprised at the ease of his success and full of contempt for the appeasers who had so empowered him.

So too Putin. Once the Obama administration had reset the mild punishments of the Bush administration for carving out parts of Ossetia, Putin went back on the move. Obama’s reset was a green light for Putin. Who in the real world of serious diplomacy shows up in Geneva with a red plastic toy reset button, complete with a mistranslated Russian label? When Putin soon sized up the Obama administration’s appeasement around the globe — from fake red lines for Syria, to a scramble out of Iraq, to chaos in Libya — he moved into Crimea. And then he waited.

Noted Global Warming Skeptic Gets His Twitter Account Suspended

Twitter has suspended the account of Steven Goddard, the pseudonym of a well-known blogger who is critical of man-made global warming.

After receiving messages of complaints against his account from Twitter in late February, Goddard woke up Monday morning to find his account had been suspended for violating Twitter’s rules.

“I tried to make a tweet around 8 am, and it failed to go through,” Goddard told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Then a message appeared at the top of my Twitter account, saying that my account had been suspended for ‘violation of Twitter rules.’”

Gasoline use at lowest rate in three decades

Average fuel consumption by American drivers is at its lowest level in at least 30 years, says a University of Michigan researcher.

In a follow-up to a series of reports released over the past two years, Michael Sivak of the U-M Transportation Research Institute examined recent trends in fuel consumption by cars, pickup trucks, SUVs and vans in the U.S. fleet from 1984 to 2013.

His findings show that gallons of gasoline consumed per person, driver, vehicle and household are below 1984 levels—the first year of the study—and down 14 percent to 19 percent from peak levels a little more than a decade ago (2003-2004).

Obama Plans To Take Walker County’s Guns

Daily Mountain Eagle 
Walker County's Least Trusted News Source 
From the moment an announcement was made that President Barack Obama would make a visit to Birmingham, rumors have swirled regarding the Commander In-Chief’s plans. Finally, White House Spokesman Josh Earnest broke the silence on Pennsylvania Avenue, stating, “The President is here to take guns away from Walker County.”

“It’s definitely an unprecedented move,” explained U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, “but completely necessary for the safety of surrounding Alabama counties. We’ve received countless complaints of celebratory gunshots going off for completely ridiculous reasons. I mean, who celebrates the opening of a new Dollar General?”

Residents of Walker County were slowly receiving news of the landmark Executive Branch decision as they awoke from their welfare-subsidized naps Wednesday. “Un-be-lievable,” exclaimed Joe Franks of Carbon Hill, “If President Kenya thinks he can just waltz on into the WC and take my guns he’s got another thing comin.”

At press time, the White House reported that the President was still considering the removal of fireworks, mud tires, truck nutz, King James Version Bibles, and Milo’s Sweet Tea from Walker County.

Collusion Or Coincidence? ATF’s Ammo Ban Identical to UN Ammo Ban

Via Jeffery

Collusion Or Coincidence

For much of the past month, the American shooting industry and pro-gun civil arms rights groups, along with the majority of lawmakers on Capitol Hill,[1] have been rightly preoccupied with the Obama Administration’s latest gun control proposal to effectively ban common center-fire ammunition used in popular AR-15 style rifles and pistols.

The resignation of the BATF Director last week should not be the end of the story however…the Senate and House Judiciary Committees should question the acting Director of the BATF, along with other officials at the Departments of State and Justice on the apparent transnational dimension of the aborted ammo ban.

The fact is that the 13 February BATF ammo ban is linked through timing, content, and “covert” or “off the books” US involvement to a nearly identical United Nations plan released for comment to a small group of pre-approved experts on 19 January 2015.[2]

William E. Fairbairn: Badass of the Week


"Get tough, get down in the gutter, win at all costs... I teach what is called ‘Gutter Fighting.’ There’s no fair play, no rules except one: kill or be killed."

William Ewart Fairbairn is one of the most badass martial arts masters the world has ever seen. In addition to developing the basis for the martials arts systems used by cops and special forces across the globe, he also invented the SWAT Team, came up with the idea of riot police, invented the police officer's tactical bullet-proof vest, and created the knife that was used by the SAS, Army Rangers, and Marine Raiders in World War II. He also survived over 600 non-training street fights in his lifetime as a police officer and was allegedly covered from face to ankle in scars from knife wounds he received in life-or-death battles with dirtbag criminal scumbags on the streets of Shanghai.

Fairbarn was born in 1885 in Hertfordshire, England. As a young man he spent his spare time reading newspapers to his blind neighbor, at fifteen he took a job as a leather worker, and the day he turned sixteen he saw a recruitement poster for the Royal Marines and decided, fuck it, I'm going to enlist.

Unfortunately for Fairbairn, the enlistment age was eighteen in England at this time, but apparently his recruitment officer didn't give a shit – he forged the documents to allow Fairbairn to enlist, the young teenager went through one of the most brutal basic training courses offered by any military in the world in 1901, and was immediately shipped out to a British Marines station in Korea.

NC Assembly Moves on Pro-Gun Bills


Two important pro-2A bills have been introduced by both the NC House and Senate, and are under committee consideration.

NC Senate Introduces Preemption Bill Supported by GRNC

As you know, GRNC followers have worked hard to repair the confusing patchwork of carry restrictions enacted by misguided municipalities across the state. These often conflicting laws make it difficult for law-abiding gun owners to travel without unintentionally violating obscure local ordinances. 

This type of patchwork of conflicting laws is a gun control tactic designed to make lawful carry as difficult and legally risky as possible, in an effort to discourage exercise of Second Amendment rights.

GRNC has successfully pushed several bills through the NC Assembly in recent years that have increased the uniformity of NC gun laws. 

Despite these successes, some anti-gun municipalities have gone to absurd lengths to circumvent the clear intent of state preemption. Examples of abuses include redefining dog parks as "playgrounds" and lakes as "swimming pools" to enact bans.

On Tuesday, NC Senator Jeff Tarte (R, Mecklenburg, GRNC-****) introduced Senate Bill 394, the "Preemption Affirmation Act". Among other things, this bill will make municipal leaders who violate state preemption of local gun laws personally liable and subject to significant personal fines. A similar law in FL has effectively curtailed municipal insubordination in the Sunshine State. 

This is an important pro-2A bill that will require input from GRNC supporters to pass. Watch for coming Alerts on the issue and make time to respond to action items.

HB7 Passes NC House

House Bill 7, "Amend Firearm Restoration Law", introduced by Representatives Michael Speciale (R, Beaufort, Craven, Pamlico, GRNC-****) and Larry Pittman (R, Cabarrus, GRNC-****) has already passed the NC House and is now being considered by the Senate Rules Committee. It will undo damage caused by 1995 (following passage of the federal Brady Act) and 2004 amendments to the NC Felony Firearms Act. It is another pro-2A bill that deserves GRNC support.
