GRNC Press Conference In Raleigh On Tuesday

The Demanding Moms can gets lots of turnout to their events because of stay-at-home moms, retirees, and kept women. Well, I don’t know about the kept women part but I think the first two are pretty accurate.

Grass Roots North Carolina is holding a press conference in conjunction with Rep. Larry Pittman (R-Cabarrus) on school safety. They need – WE NEED – as many people who can to attend that press conference and especially teachers who want the ability to be armed to protect the school children under their care.

The full release is below:

PRESS CONFERENCE:
SCHOOL
SELF-DEFENSE ACT



Children will only be safe when adults are permitted to protect
them …

Tomorrow (Tuesday, 6/5), the sponsors of the “School Self-Defense Act” (HB 1039)
will be publicly introducing the bill, and
you’re invited. 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
. More press conference details below.

Parents and especially
teachers,
please attend this press conference

PRESS RELEASE:
LEGISLATION & PRESS
CONFERENCE DETAILS


Bill Provides

Active Shooter Protection for Students

Legislators herald introduction of
House Bill 1039: “School Self-Defense Act”


Press conference:

When:  Tuesday, June 5 at 11:00 A.M. EDT

Where: NC General Assembly, Legislative Building Rm. 1328, 16. W. Jones St., Raleigh, NC

Who:    Representatives Larry Pittman, Michael Speciale, John Blust and Mark
Brody

To deter active
shooter scenarios and better protect North Carolina students, North Carolina House Representatives Larry Pittman, Michael Speciale, John Blust
and Mark Brody
have introduced HB 1039: “School Self-Defense Act,” which is patterned after the Department of
Homeland Security’s highly successful “Federal Flight Deck Officer” program and would:
  • Create a “Volunteer School Faculty Guardian” program for full or part-time
    school faculty members who have concealed handgun permits and wish to carry firearms to protect students;
  • Create an active shooter training program for School Faculty Guardians; and
  • Allow school systems to “opt out” should they choose to do so.

Teachers to speak
out in favor of HB 1039:

The June 5 press conference will
allow an opportunity for teachers in favor of arming faculty members, whose voices have long been stifled, to be heard.

Said
GRNC president Paul Valone:

Too
often, politicians have wrongly equated
protecting school children with the loss of individual freedom. GRNC
thanks these courageous legislators for promoting a solution, already
operating
successfully in Ohio and elsewhere, which will deter mass killings,
allow volunteer faculty members to provide a last layer of defense for
school
children, and preserve our Constitutional liberties.

Suggested Subject: “The School Self-Defense Act Must Receive a Hearing”  

 
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. 

Respectfully,
