    Hello all. I've been thinking about doing this for awhile but now I'm gonna get er' done.

    This is the latest atrocity facing North Carolina gun owners.

    Thanks, Mark.

    Hit Them Again on 'Prosecute Lawful Gun Owner' Bill

    THIS JUST IN FROM THE

    'VICTIM DISARMAMENT SESSION'

    Act Now: HB 1847, "Report Lost or Stolen Gun" In House J-I Committee
    Monday!

    We don't ask this of you often but we need YOU to show up for this
    committee meeting! All the leverage possible will be required to stop
    this bad bill.

    We will meet at the Printed Bills area at 2:00 PM. To find Printed
    Bills: Enter the Legislative Building and turn left. You will enter
    an indoor courtyard that contains the 1300-numbered offices, and the
    Printed Bills office will be to your right. If you're arriving late
    (please try not to), the committee room is 1228.

    Directions to the Legislative Building

    Coming from I-40, take exit 298B, follow 50/401 North, bear right
    onto McDowell, and turn right onto Jones (which is one-way). The
    Legislative Building will be on your left, between Salisbury and
    Wilmington and across from parking garage for NC Museum of Natural
    History (I think it is natural history).

    To park, go past the Legislative Building and cross Wilmington. You
    will see an open parking lot on the right immediately after the
    intersection.

    If you have any problems or delays, please call Paul Valone at
    704-907-9206.

    A quick refresher on what is properly called "The Prosecute Lawful
    Gun Owners Act," the bill would:

    * Give you only 48 hours to file separate reports for each firearm
    stolen.

    * Cover not only known, but also unknown losses. For instance, if you
    have your gun safe cleaned out by a burglar and you report the 30 guns you remember, but there was that one you forgot you had, you could be held liable for that one because you "reasonably should have known" it was stolen.

    * Virtually require you to retain a pistol purchase permit for each
    handgun stolen, creating a new pathway to handgun registration.

    IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED

    * SHOW UP at 2:00 pm on Monday, May 14 at the NC General Assembly in
    Raleigh. We want to PACK THIS COMMITTEE HEARING.

    * CALL these pro-gun members of the House J-I Committee and urge them
    to attend this meeting to vote against HB 1847:

    DELIVER THIS MESSAGE

    ----------------------------------------------------

    Dear Representative:

    HB 1847, the so-called "Report Lost or Stolen Gun", which should more
    properly be titled "The Prosecute Lawful Gun Owners Act," is a
    completely misguided concept.

    "Prosecute Lawful Gun Owners Act," would punish the *victims* of
    property crimes, rather than criminals who commit those crimes, for
    failing to report the theft of firearms they might not even know were
    stolen. Consider carefully if it is wise to kick a voter while he or
    she is down by victimizing that person a second time with this
    atrocity.

    I strongly urge you to vote NO on this insidious bill.

    Sincerely,

    A Concerned North Carolina Voter

    2 things...
    1. Gun owners should have all their gun info written down in case they do get stolen. 2.What will they charge the criminals with since the victims get felonies?

    Absolutely. I know I do. But I would bet that most don't.

    I don't know, but it still sounds like a stupid bill to me!

    Just givin ya'll a heads up! Being an instructor, I have met alot of shooters. The vast majority doesn't have or look for this kind of info.

    Just trying to change that.;)
