Machine Gun Social a Big Success for Robinson for Congress

The Robinson for Congress Campaign hosted a Machine Gun Social on Thursday, March 29, at Eagle Gun in Concord, NC, at 6:30 PM.

Vernon Robinson said of this event, “I appreciate so much the support of outdoorsmen and women, hunters, conceal-carry permit holders, and gun enthusiasts.  This large and supportive crowd tonight is testament to the fact that our American forefathers founded this nation with the wisdom to grant us the precious right to keep and bear arms.”

Special thanks go out to Rob Peetz of Repent Arms, our Class 3 Licenseholder who provided the guns, and to Eagle Gun for hosting the event and giving away the door prize of an AR-15.

Donors at the event had the privilege of firing a magazine of a fully-automatic submachine gun at the new Indoor Shooting Range of Eagle Guns.  Tickets were $50 per person for this excellent privilege.

Honored guests included the Honorable Carolyn Carpenter, former Board of Cabarrus County Commissioner and School Board member.

A video compilation of the event can be found on the Robinson for Congress website, or watch below:



The conservative, pro-gun rights candidate for Congress in NC’s 8th Congressional District is Vernon Robinson.  That’s why Paul Valone, Executive Director of Grass Roots NC, has praised Vernon as a “strict constitutionalist with wit, gravitas, and a nuanced understanding of issues foreign and domestic.”

Valone continued, “Earning GRNC’s highest 4-star evaluation, Robinson has a long history of supporting gun rights. As a Winston-Salem Alderman in 1999, he led a charge to repeal the city’s ban on concealed carry in parks. In various roles as a candidate or campaign manager, he has always emphasized the Second Amendment.”

Vernon Robinson values the support of Second Amendment advocates like Paul Valone and Larry Pratt, Executive Director of Gun Owners of America, and Vernon especially appreciates the broad support he has received from grassroots Second Amendment advocates in the 8th District.
