Democrats Know Who The Real Criminals Are

Under North Carolina law, all carry permits are null and void the moment a governor declares a state of emergency:

Thanks to a brain-dead state law foisted upon us by a Democratic state legislature (N.C. Gen. Stat. § 14-288.7), every time the governor—in this instance, Democrat Beverly Perdue—declares a state of emergency, it is illegal from that moment onward to carry a concealed weapon until the state of emergency has been declared over.

Yep – tha’ts what the law itself says:

14-288.7. (a) Except as otherwise provided in this section, it is unlawful for any person to transport or possess off his own premises any dangerous weapon or substance in any area:

(1) In which a declared state of emergency exists; or

(2) Within the immediate vicinity of which a riot is occurring.

It’s a Class 1 Misdemeanor.

The state of emergency issued by the governor, Beverly Purdue, covers the part of the state east of I95:

Governor Purdue made this declaration while the state was at work, meaning everyone who has a carry permit and lives east of Interstate 95 who was away from home instantly became a criminal by proclamation.

And geography aside, remember – it’s a law that only attacks the law-abiding!  Criminals aren’t putting their guns away, declaration or no!

It’s the sort of deeply, intensively stupid law that is the DFL’s stock in trade that Tony Cornish’s “Stand Your Ground” bill was, at least in part, intended to prevent.

All you gun-clinging Jebus freaks out there – next session, we need to hold the Legislature’s feet in the fire for this one.

  1. North Carolina? Isn’t that wear Cape Fear is?
    So let me get this straight. You could be cruising up the inland waterway in your boat with a psychotic ex-con stowaway who wants to kill you and your family. A hurricane hits and you have to throw your gun overboard because the governor has declared a state of emergency.
    It just ain’t right.

  2. Yes, you would not want to be armed in a state of emergency. Keep that in mind when the zombie holocaust happens.

  3. So a standard state-of-emergency is closer to martial law? Do they also suspend free speach and close down the newspapers?
