The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

Constitutional concealed carry in North Carolina?

Written By: Bob - Nov• 15•12

Make it so:

Since gun rights reforms were traditionally blocked here in North Carolina by city dwelling Democrat legislators who occupied NCGA leadership positions, this means that the only truly anti-gun politicians left in North Carolina are no longer in a position to stop us. And with a Republican Governor, it’s now open season on some of our dumber gun laws.

Constitutional Carry (or Vermont Carry, if you prefer) would mean that it would no longer be a requirement for lawful residents to take training classes, pay outrageous sums of money, and beg permission from the Sheriff before exercising their right to carry a concealed weapon. Note that I said “weapon,” not “handgun.” Constitutional Carry would eliminate the entire “concealed weapon” law, 14-269. It would still be illegal for convicted felons to carry a firearm, but regular lawful residents would no longer have to apply for a permit to carry.

It has always annoyed me, the thought of having to get a permit or license to exercise a right.

Now, if they will do away with the silly LEO sign-off for NFA items (short-barreled firearms, suppressors, etc), I’d be even more enthused.

    Just say that your weapon is “birth control” or a “contraceptive” supporting your “right to choose” and they’ll rush to give it to you, no questions asked and they’ll even mandate that someone else pays for it for you.

    After all, if all the freebies are a good thing to support one “right”, then all rights should be similarly supported for “free”.
