North Carolina –-( A special meeting will be held regarding a gun-ban ordinance this Monday, at 5:30 PM, in the Haywood County Courtroom of the Historic Courthouse (more meeting details below).

Please join GRNC President F. Paul Valone at this meeting, where the Haywood County Commissioners will be discussing an ordinance to BAN ALL OPEN AND CONCEALED CARRY in and on any county owned or controlled property. This ordinance would reverse regulations dating back to 1995, which recognize the citizens’ civil rights in this area. (Click here to read a copy of the proposed new ordinance).

Some commissioners have claimed that the increase in gun ownership has created an unsafe atmosphere. Yet, statistics show that more crime happens in so-called “gun-free” zones. Gun owners must inform the commissioners that we know the facts, and we won’t be fooled by false arguments, and emotional appeals.

Below, find out how you can contact the county commissioners and let them know that what they’re considering is wrong, and not at all acceptable. Also, get details on the meeting so you can attend and help to put a stop to this effort to disarm good people like you, “put you in your place,” and make you easy prey for the bad guys.


EMAIL THE HAYWOOD COUNTY COMMISSIONERS. Urge them to vote against the gun-ban ordinance. Below, find a copy/paste email list, and under ‘Deliver This Message,’ you’ll find a copy/paste email message to send.

Suggested Subject: “Vote No on Gun Ban in Haywood County”

Dear Commissioner:

I have recently been informed of the gun ban that is being considered by the Haywood County Commission, and I am writing to urge you to vote against any such gun ban.

A patchwork of “gun-free” zones serve only to make accidental criminals out of otherwise peaceful, law-abiding citizens, while doing nothing to ensure anyone’s safety. A vote to close all county facilities to the lawful carry of handguns will only convey a disrespect for civil rights as they relate to the Second Amendment, and will ultimately endanger both the citizens and employees of Haywood County.

You may be unaware of the new trend that is currently sweeping our state. In recent months, county after county, after recognizing the fallacy of “gun free” zones, has moved in the direction of more gun-freedom rather than less: Pitt, Person, Wilkes, Rockingham, Cherokee, and Alamance counties—just to name a few. There are more, and the list continues to lengthen. This is a positive trend, and I would strongly recommend that Haywood County consider this course, rather than a sure-to-be fruitless and disrespectful gun ban.

Keep Haywood County free and safe for law-abiding voters and their families. Vote ‘no’ on any sort of gun ban. I will continue to monitor this issue through alerts from Grass Roots North Carolina.

And I thought North Carolina was part of the true South. What a shame. We have so very few havens of the real America left to us.


North Carolina has been a libturd stronghold for about 150 years, until 2008 when we elected a Republican Governor, Senate, and House. We have been getting rid of the unconstitutional, libturd created, BS laws ever since and the demoldturds have been crying, whining, and screaming all the way. We still have small pockets of libturd revolt like this county and hopefully the people will wake up and recall or vote these dirtbags out.


Yes, so unsafe, the streets are blood red, body bags piled high at the morgue.



Nice to get these notifications. Haywood county is just a few miles from me but I only received this article today. The commission meeting was yesterday…..oh well.

It will never end. The same tired, illogical, and false arguments used by the “anti-gun” people who will continue to attack ad nauseum have grown so common place that many people actually believe them. People need to vote more wisely or run for public office themselves in order to keep this idiocy from continually repeating. Go to this meeting with FBI crime and gun ownership statistics for the country, the state, and the county and present them in a non-emotional way. You will most likely be met with disdain and ignored anyway but at least they will become part of… Read more »


Why are the people who want to take away our right to carry firearms in some areas have armed security
for their own protection? I truly believe these are the cowards of the county. If we are disarmed then they must be
disarmed also with no exception! No armed security for the politicians who hide behind the very guns that they
do not want us to have.
