Illegalize declawing cats in North Carolina

"The operation [of declawing] involves essentially taking the ends of what we would call our fingers off ... I once had the end of one of my fingers crushed in an accident many years ago, and for years afterward ... I got phantom pains in that finger. I'm a human being and I could look at my finger and say, 'That's a phantom pain. I know it's not real pain. It's annoying and distracting, but I can live with it.' ... "I think if I had eight of those going and I was a cat and I couldn't really understand what had happened to me, I suspect I would have not been happy about it." - John Bradshaw

I am asking for help in my attempt of making declawing illegal in North Carolina. So far the only state in the US with any ban or law against this operation is California, but that needs to change.
