NC Dems trying to kill "Castle Doctrine"

NC Senate Bill 928, “The Castle Doctrine” (For more on how Castle Doctrine strengthens your right to defend yourself, click here.) remarkably passed the Democrat-controlled NC Senate on 14 May of this year.

It has since languished in the NC House where it will face 3 committees as opposed to the typical single committee hearing where, if passed, it would head for a vote by the full chamber. This is due to the efforts of:

"Rep. Deborah Ross (Wake), the virulently anti-gun chair of the Judiciary I Committee...(who) maintains she is hearing “non-controversial” bills first, but doesn’t explain what should be “controversial” about a bill which simply reinforces the right of lawful citizens to protect themselves from imminent death or serious bodily injury. Indeed, if SB 928 is so “controversial,” why did it pass the Senate by a vote of 42 to 2?"

RTWH over at The Charlotte Gun Rights Examiner, who I just discovered via an email alert from Grass Roots NC. There is some good news at the end of the post.
