North Carolina –(Ammoland.com)- In a push to revive federal gun control which failed in April, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” will make one its 100 bus tour stops at Moore Square in Raleigh, NC on Saturday, June 22 2013 at 9:00 AM.
When they do, members of Grass Roots North Carolina (GRNC), the state’s most influential gun rights organization, will be there to greet them. Gun rights supporters will deliver a clear message which the media too often refuses to carry: “Guns Save Lives!”
- As documented by criminologist Gary Kleck, each year in the U.S. experiences approximately 2.3 million defensive gun uses — the vast majority without shots being fired.
- North Carolinians, like citizens in most of the U.S., reject gun control as not only an ineffective infringement on individual liberty, but as dangerous public policy which serves only to embolden criminals.
- As documented by former U.S. Sentencing Commission chief economist, the most effective deterrent to murder, rape and aggravated assault is the adoption of concealed handgun laws which enable citizens to protect themselves.
- In the most blatant example yet of inflating the perception of gun deaths, Bloomberg’s radicals have included among their list of “victims of gun violence,” Boston bomber Dzhokar Tsarnaev, cop-killer Christopher Dorner and other violent predators.
GRNC will invite Bloomberg and his band of radicals to take their fake demonstrations to other states, where fewer people understand that gun control isn’t about guns, but rather about control.
“Mayors Against Illegal Guns” (MAIG) recently began a 100-city bus tour to push for federal gun bans. Although Bloomberg keeps the bus schedule secret to avoid actually hearing what people want, we have learned that the MAIG bus tour will hit Raleigh at 9:00 AM on Saturday.
It’s time to show the media and the world that Bloomberg does not speak for the nation by showing up at GRNC’s “MAIG Counter Demonstration.” Yes, the notice is short. No, you probably don’t have time, or you have something else scheduled. . .
Be there anyway!
