Public law (Title 33-31-1602) proclaims non-profit corporations must make their records available to any voting member for them to examine.
Link to SC Title http://www.scstatehouse.gov/code/t33c031.htm

After twelve years of operations under the documents filed with the state of SC to incorporate GrassRoots GunRights leadership recently learned that SC law lets membership have access to our records and membership list. This was written in the filing the officers signed and agreed to uphold in order to be a non-profit organization.

Furthermore, they were to hold monthly membership meeting and elections yearly which they have failed to do.

In light of their refusal to release those documents to membership and hold the required meeting and elections, membership has filed a suit.


There will be a court hearing on a rule to show cause on Monday April the 18 at 11.00 AM.

Location: Lexington County Court of Common Pleas
205 East Main Street
Lexington SC


Anyone wishing to support this cause is invited to attend.

I'm a bit confused here. So the membership of Grass Roots is suing Grass Roots?

Not in the true sense of the word sueing.

Claims have been made that the directors of GRGR has not fulfulled the law in running the organization. Membership wants to hold elections and have more say in how the organization is operated. I'm sure this is a hard decision to make but it has to be done, otherwise, it is just another dictatorship.

For example, as per the stated law members can request financial reports, minutesform previous meetings, etc. This was done by a member and the directors just ignored the request. When the heat was applied they then sent out ballots requesting that the membership vote to change the corporate structure to do away with membership as a whole. Basically making the people that join just a subscriber without any rights or say in the operation of how things are handled.

In other words they just want your money. The folks that are pushing for the elections and meetings want to get GRGR back on track.
