ConfederateYankee: North Carolina Governor Declares Every Concealed Carry Permit in eastern NC Invalid Due to Hurricane Irene

The way I read it, the law she triggered does much more than that.  Open Carry is normally legal in North Carolina, but not under the terms of this law, as it forbids transportation or even possession of a firearm off one’s own premises.

Let me see if I can follow the chain of liberal non-logic behind this brain-dead law.

During a declared state of emergency or riot, the ability of the government to enforce the rule of law and protect its citizens has been compromised.  It therefore follows that this is exactly when the citizens must be deprived of the ability to protect themselves unless they are huddled in their homes (or business).

Banding together to protect their neighborhoods from marauders or mobs is a complete non-starter, as everyone is sequestered to their own little patch of land.  “Every man for himself” is the state mandate.

Natural disaster hits?  You had better hope your friends and relatives are already armed because you can’t take your guns to go defend them from looters, or even lend or give them guns to do it themselves.

Imagine the London scenario in NC: you’re out away from home minding your own business and a flash mob hits the area, and within five minutes you’ve got a riot.  Defend yourself?  Heck, you’re not even allowed to have that gun now, let alone use it.

Most gun laws are poorly thought out at best, but this is on a whole other level of just gross stupidity.

  1. So if the Governor declares an emergency and orders a family to evacuate, they have to leave behind firearms for anyone to loot or steal ?

    I have 3 firearms from my father, he didn’t leave much else in the way of lasting physical legacy. Why on earth should the government be allowed to tell me I can’t save those keep sakes?
