Pro-gun group targeting lobbyists over concealed carry bill

Pro-gun group Grassroots North Carolina is striking back at those opposing House Bill 746, the omnibus gun bill that would do away with most concealed carry permits for handguns.

On their website and newsletter, the group is publishing the photos, phone numbers and – in some cases – home addresses of lobbyists working against the bill.

In a post (posted below, addresses redacted) accusing the lobbyists of taking “blood money” and endangering domestic violence victims, the group encourages its members to reach out to the lobbyists.

Some readers may remember that Grassroots NC did this same sort of thing to the late journalist Mark Binker some years back in what they called a media “warning shot.”

The information on the lobbyists is culled from publicly available voting record data. But making it easily available in fiery communications about the loss of gun rights is not, as the stories of those stalked and killed over political disagreements can attest,  an ethical best practice.
