State of Emergency Order makes criminals of concealed handgun permit-holders, sport shooters, and hunters.
At issue is N.C. General Statute 14-288.7, which prohibits transporting a “dangerous weapon” during a state of emergency:
§ 14 288.7. Transporting dangerous weapon or substance during emergency; possessing off premises; exceptions.(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.(b) This section does not apply to persons exempted from the provisions of G.S. 14 269 with respect to any activities lawfully engaged in while carrying out their duties.(c) Any person who violates any provision of this section is guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor. (1969, c. 869, s. 1; 1993, c. 539, s. 192; 1994, Ex. Sess., c. 24, s. 14(c).)
According to § 14 288.1 (10), a state of emergency exists “whenever, during times of public crisis, disaster, rioting, catastrophe, or similar public emergency, public safety authorities are unable to maintain public order or afford adequate protection for lives or property, or whenever the occurrence of any such condition is imminent.”
Named in the suit are North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue; Reuben Young, secretary of the Department of Crime Control and Public Safety; Stokes County and the City of King.
After GRNC issued an alert to its members, word of the implications of Perdue's order spread on the Internet, including being featured on thetruthaboutguns.com. It is widely anticipated that the order will add impetus to the Bateman lawsuit.” (SOURCE)
Tomorrow Dove hunting season opens in North Carolina. If that State of Emergency Order isn’t lifted before then, the fields of North Carolina will be crawling with thousands of Tar Heel criminals who have no intention of allowing one of the worst governors the state has ever had, an Obama democrat to boot, stand in the way of their annual hunting event.
This is just something else Tar Heel voters should “Remember in November.” Throw every democrat on the ballot out!
