Rep. Mark Hilton (R-Catawba) is retiring at the end of this session of the General Assembly. He has been the sponsor or co-sponsor of a number of the major gun rights bills that have passed the General Assembly over the last few years. To recognize this, Grass Roots North Carolina will honor him with their first Lifetime Freedom Achievement Award at their May 19th Annual Meeting and Dinner.
Sadly, a gun rights hero is leaving the North Carolina House: The Honorable Mark Hilton (R-Catawba, GRNC ****) will not run for re-election in 2012. First elected with GRNC Political Victory Fund support in 1996, Hilton has sponsored legislation for concealed handgun reciprocity, bypassing handgun purchase permits, parks and restaurant carry, Castle Doctrine and far more. He has been instrumental in GRNC’s success in killing scores of gun control bills.
