North Carolina – -(AmmoLand.com)- Today our North Carolina churches are under increased risk of vandalism, violence, and assault. This is especially true now that legalized abortion on demand has been found unconstitutional with the release of the Dobbs decision by the US Supreme Court last week.

Congressman Dan Bishop (NC-09), along with 17 other Representatives has called upon the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice to provide information on known threats to churches across the United States. Daily Caller

Specifically, the letter signed by Congressman Bishop (Hasn’t he turned out to be a real champion for the 2nd Amendment, by the way!) along with 17 other Representatives asks:

  • What specific information do you have regarding threats to churches? What are you doing to ensure the safety of churches, clergy, bishops, and congregations?
  • Are there any grants administered by either the Department of Justice or the Department of Homeland Security for which churches are eligible that they can use for security purposes? Have you been proactive in reaching out to churches that may be at increased risk of attack?
  • What is the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice doing to interdict threats against churches and to protect clergy and congregants?
    In North Carolina, some churches are more at risk than others. Last year the legislature passed SB43, commonly called “Church Carry” to rectify this situation. This same bill was previously passed by the legislature in 2018. Guess what? Habitual Gun Banner Governor Roy Cooper callously vetoed them both times!

We still have an opportunity to correct this situation before the current legislative short session ends this weekend.

Senate leader Berger and House Speaker Moore must schedule SB43 for a veto override vote!

While the fate of such a vote is uncertain, WE NEED TO KNOW who in the legislature, Republican or Democrat, stands for the safety, security, and protection of ALL churches and all worshippers and WHO DOES NOT!

We need a roll call veto override vote TODAY!

Immediate Action Is Required!

Call Senate Leader Berger and House Speaker Moore and give them this direct and simple message:

  • Senate Leader Phil Burger (919) 733-4111
  • House Speaker Tim Moore (919) 733-3451

“Senate Leader Burger/House Speaker Moore:

You have unfinished business before adjourning this year’s Legislative Short Session. Our North Carolina Churches do not have universal opportunities to protect themselves from the threat of outside violence. SB43 (Church Carry) corrects this injustice.

The legislature passed SB43 (Church Carry) last session, but Governor Roy Cooper reflexively vetoed it. In light of new, known threats to churches it is imperative you take the necessary action to bring SB43 (Church Carry) back for a veto override vote. Let’s see who will stand up to the threat of violence and who will condone it. All who worship at their local church must have the same protections; none should be irrationally excluded.

I will be monitoring your actions through GRNC legislative alerts.”

Next, email Senator Berger and Representative Moore using the following “copy and paste” email addresses: [email protected]; [email protected]

Everyone is entitled to their own religious beliefs and/or the lack thereof. However, if a house of worship is not a safe haven for believers, it doesn’t say a lot for the existence of an omnipotent deity. My opinion is that guns should not be disallowed anywhere, everyone should carry everywhere and there should be no laws against the practice. 2nd Amendment, United States Constitution, 12-15-1791.

Yep. How many “gun free” zones were there in 1789-92? And how many spoiled & pharma-drug-addled psychos did we need to defend ourselves against in 1789-92?

But letting people choose to do stupid things, like voting for scumbags who ban self-defense in church or going to a church that bans it, hardly disproves God.

I believe that it is Luke 4, verse 4 or 5 that explains why bad things happen to good people.

Churches used to be safe havens and the last place any sane person would consider shooting is an unarmed congregation. We know that everything isn’t what it should be and not everyone is in their right mind. The left really wants it that way or else there wouldn’t be so many potential soft targets. Society is safer when criminals don’t know who’s armed, but if they knew someone might be at the ready, they might think twice

MICHAEL… You realize the progressive left wants to do away with religion in this country , right ?

ROY COOPER WAS ELECTED CAUSE THEY CHEATED

How did NC get an outstanding Lt Governor like Mark Robinson but a POS like Roy Cooper for Governor?

swmft

cities are liberal have rainbow parades

Roy Cooper was already the incumbent in 2020. Incumbents have great power and finances, assisted by vote theft.

Figures!
