    To all CFF Membership:

    The Carolina Firearms Forum and Grass Roots North Carolina are joining forces to re-establish this sub forum. The purpose of this forum is to disseminate important information about the threat to gun rights in North Carolina. This forum will be updated periodically by GRNC and will provide calls to action for those who are interested in doing so.

    GRNC has added links to the CFF in multiple locations on their website. They have also added a link to the CFF in each of their email alerts. In return we are providing this forum for them.

    There will be a few members of GRNC that will be able to create threads and post alerts. Moderation will be conducted by CFF mods and staff.

    —-

    Understanding and acknowledging the history is necessary. As the moderator for this forum I would like to set the tone for further interactions with GRNC by stating the following:

    Independent, freedom-minded individuals have every reason to find common cause. This is self-evident in these days and times. While it serves no purpose to belabor discussion of the various threats to the freedoms we hold dear (namely the inherent right to keep and bear arms) I will simply say that a divided front serves none but the enemies of liberty.

    As independent thinkers we often strike out on our own paths. We are skeptical and critical at times. Such is as it should be. We are not followers. Cynicism is the mark of the rugged individual and precisely that which we rely upon to sift through the flotsam and jetsam of media to find the scarce remnants of truth.

    In my journey adherence to principles has, at times, experienced slight mission creep. As a result I have found myself treating friends as foes. This has happened when they did not measure up to whatever lofty standard I foisted upon them despite struggling to reach such heights personally.

    I’ve observed this as well from others, though to be sure I say this with no intention of besmirching any one’s character. And with my own admission that I am not a perfect being. Yet, I would ask that we refrain from returning to anything that resembles animus.

    We are on the same side and therefore should not denounce that which falls short of perfection. Most especially when those intentions are inherently good.

    I would simply ask that any differences be set aside in favor of cooperation and progress toward a goal that is near and dear to each and every one of us, i.e. our common interest in the preservation of the 2nd Amendment. GRNC as an organization is the most ardent supporter of gun rights we have in the state of NC. They have committed to fostering a great relationship with the forum and its membership.

    I will do my best to set the example and would be grateful for your help in this regard.

    Sincerely,
    SOTG

    It just felt right. It was to “the partnership” not anyone in particular.

    Glad to see you back. Both organizations missions are the same. Both champion the freedom to arm ourselves especially given the countries climate and the governments threat to limit many of our rights.

    Welcome back. Hopefully you are less, well, sensitive than the last rep who tried to wave the glorious flag of the GRNC.

    I’m not the representative. But they will be along soon once they have created forum accounts.

    As usual, SOTG humbles himself and sets an example that all conservatives should strive for. He consistently chooses the high road.

    I personally strive to build bridges with those on the far left of the river and it has payed off better than I imagined.

    Ben, I plan to get behind you again this summer. Hopefully I can surprise you with a fresh group of faces who see the value in personal liberty as it relates to thier own persuit of happiness.

    @Studentofthegun

    I sincerely appreciate your dedication to this firearms community by demonstrating your willingness to find common ground in our 2A efforts alongside GRNC during these unpredictable times. It will take all of us doing our part to make this work in areas that neither of us can be successful in alone.

    I commend your efforts here and applaud your willingness to put some skin in the game for all of the right reasons. It's simply what good sound men will be found doing.

    All the best sir.

    Brangus
