Reference ‘North Carolina declared gun free zone in anticipation of Hurricane Earl‘ about NC law prohibiting the transport or carry of firearms by civilians during declared emergencies. I asked around if anyone in NC had defied this ridiculous, unconstitutional law, and am pleased to report that there was some pretty open disobedience. First, from this thread on Muster 4-19 (RTC’s sister site for networking):
“I defied the emergency gun transport ban and drove with a weapon in my car, as well as on my person while the emergency declaration was in effect. Same as always. A law that infringes on my civil rights is not a law worthy of obedience.…….”
“Actually, I drove my vehicle with two pistols in the console and one on my hip.
I went into a store (military surplus) wearing my 45/410 revolver. There was a city policeman inside. I made it a point to stand where he could not help but see it.
He said not a word….”
Another source tells me that he (source) and others attended a firearms course this past week in NC and that he knowingly transported his rifle in the state during the time of the ban.
And then there is a local news article about a different rifle shooting course that also went on during the time of the ban:
The Second Amendment clearly states that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. The emergency transport ban clearly conflicts. Folks who defied the ban did the right thing. LEO’s who did not enforce the ban did the right thing.
To all otherwise “law abiding citizens” in NC who decided to break the law in the recent emergency gun transport ban: Thank you!
Thank you for setting an example that I hope others will follow in regards to unconstitutional laws.
Break them. Ignore them.
