Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson (R-N. Car.) burst onto the scene when he made an impromptu speech to his local city council—the Greensboro City Council—in 2018. The Greensboro City Council was considering going after the peoples’ right to keep and bear arms. “All day,” Robinson said, “I was thinking about this town council meeting, a meeting where they were going to talk about banning our commonly owned rifles. I decided I’d been very vocal on Facebook, and now I needed to back up my words with action. I decided to go to the meeting. I didn’t prepare any speech, though. I didn’t even plan to speak. But then I got there and I found myself signing up to address the council.”

When his turn came, Robinson said, “I’ve heard a whole lot of people in here talking tonight about this group and that group and domestic violence and blacks and these minorities and that minority, and what I want to know is, when are you all gonna start standing up for the majority? And here’s who the majority is: I’m the majority. I’m a law-abiding citizen who has never shot anybody, never committed a serious crime, never committed a felony. I’ve never done anything like that. But it seems like every time we have one of these shootings, nobody wants to put the blame where it goes, which is at the shooter’s feet. You want to put it at my feet. You want to turn around and restrict my rights; constitutional rights that are spelled out in black and white … .”

Robinson’s four-minute speech went viral. He was soon being asked to speak all over. One place he spoke was the 2018 NRA-ILA Leadership Forum. He rocked that big audience. He then decided to enter politics by running to be the lieutenant governor of North Carolina. He won. He also became an NRA board member.

Given his honest voice and now hard-earned perspective in the political arena, we reached out to ask him about freedom’s chances in this upcoming midterm election.
