Dear Speaker Moore and Chairman Lewis:
I am writing to insist on a hearing for the "School Self-Defense Act" (HB 1039).
I was quite elated when I heard that several courageous legislators have stepped forward to develop a practical and effective solution to the school safety issues we are currently facing. It's about time we stepped out of the endless cycle of rhetoric, and took actual steps to defend our children. This bill, HB 1039, does just that.
Due to the potentially imminent nature of this problem, time is short. Please do not position yourself as the one standing between school children and their safety. Rather, make sure the School Self-Defense Act receives a hearing immediately. NC Parents and Teachers need this, school children need it even more, and that's why I'm insisting on it.
I will be monitoring your actions on this issue through alerts from Grass Roots North Carolina.

- Gun advocates call out legislative leaders over arming teachers
- GOP leaders are standing in the way of a debate on arming teachers, supporters say
" ... GRNC was involved in creating this bill as well as directing input to the offices of the Speaker and the House Rules Chair, and we're excited about its introduction. This is GRNC's answer to all of the counterproductive, and worse, gun-grabbing "solutions" proposed by the left. ...
This bill, sponsored by Representatives Mark Brody, John Blust,George Cleveland, Larry Pittman and Michael Speciale, would allow certain members of school faculty or staff to carry a handgun on school grounds to respond quickly to acts of violence and imminent threats of violence.
Finally, a few courageous legislators are stepping outside of the circular rhetoric and are proposing a practical and effective solution that will actually protect the children. ..."
ATP is strongly encouraging you to call and write. As a retired teacher, I can tell you our kids and staff are not safe in our schools. Protecting our kids at school is no different than protecting your kids and family at home.
When your lefty friends tell you that teachers should not be armed, pose this question ... Who would you want your child to be with during an active shooter incident ... an unarmed teacher or an armed one???

Voter Integrity Project:
Let's all vote for Voter ID in November! (ATP is going to be heavily involved in assuring that this gets passed in November. That means we need you! The lefties are already gearing up to defeat this. Don't let that happen. That means we need you to volunteer at the polls, making phone calls, writing letters to the editor, distributing info door-to-door, getting on social media. We will be working closely with Voter Integrity Project and other conservative groups.) The Amendment has passed the House. (The legislature does not need Gov Roy Cooper's signature. If the amendment passes in November, it becomes part of our State Constitution.)
Be part of the solution, not part of the problem. Sign up. Contact Jane@AshevilleTeaParty.org with you name, number and county your live. Also contact Jay Delancy at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a statewide effort.
