Is Governor Perdue lying about North Carolina State of Emergency?

    I hope in 2012, the citizens of North Carolina take the opportunity to unseat Governor Perdue and all Legislators who supported verbiage in the law which restricts lawful possession of firearms when away from one's property during a State of Emergency. Such stupidity is inexcusable on the part of any elected or public official.

    The GRNC emails were a bit confusing, this article is right on the money. Basically G.S. 14-288.7 needs to be reworded to not be so ridiculous.

    I'm sure she doesn't understand how the law affects hunters or anyone else, which is grounds enough to vote her out in my book. I can't say that she's being malicious, but I can't stand her anyway so let's move on - down with Purdue.

    Another great, informative article Mr. Valone.
    Many thanks for the heads-up on this issue.
    It's ridiculous when a boy scout like me becomes a criminal because of something stupid like this.

    “it is unlawful for any person to transport or possess off his own premises any dangerous weapon or substance in any area…"

    The gasoline in my car is a "dangerous substance" if an open flame is near. Time to re-evaluate these 1950's jim crow laws.

    OK so there's a storm coming and if I evacuate I cant take my guns? WTH? Ok so I'll stay and ride the storm out and sue the state government because of the "Brain Polluting" Gun activist's that taunt both state & federal government with there stupidity. Come on people this is not the NC I knew when I was stationed there? The wife and I were thinking of retiring down there, but from reading stupid stuff like this and hearing that the Cost of living is just as high as NY , think its time to give it a second look see.

    "the governor has no constitutional or statutory authority to suspend the effect or enforcement of a valid NC criminal law."
    Nor does she have any authority to suspend the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution of the US or Sec. 30 of the NC State Constitution, regardless of what NC criminal law may say.
    She may have the authority to suspend CCW. The NC State Constitution & state law do provide for that, and at this time, the SCOTUS has not ruled that the RKBA includes the right to concealed carry in public.

    North Carolina needs to send that Collectivist packing in the next election. Its absurd to disarm people when they need firearms the most.

    The most damning statement in this VERY well written article is in the last paragraph:

    "living under the shadow of selective prosecution"

    The governor's office can twist, lie, and avoid the truth all they want, but this all boils down to selective prosecution, and is very evil. The governor should call a special session immediately and get HB 2031 PASSED.

    The phrase "big lie" is 100% accurate. It's like how all the states lie about the supposed requirement that everyone get a commercial drivers license, by refusing to admit that your drivers license is actually a commercal license. The law is clear in each state, yet just like in this case, government pretends that legal realities aren't there. Government likes to repeat the distortion that "driving is a privilege not a right," knowing full well that most citizens are not legally educated enough to say "but we're talking about TRAVELING not driving, there is a legal difference. Driving is defined under statute as operating a motor vehicle, which is defined as a commercial vehicle." Government bullies people into declaring their car to be a "motor vehicle" knowing full well that ONCE YOU HAVE DECLARED IT SUCH, then legally it is a "motor vehicle" (which again, is defined by statute as a commercial vehicle). Legally speaking a car with license plates is the same as a business vehicle. The public is purposefully not educated about the law in order to get them to declare themelves into a class of activity that can be regulated and taxed more. Talk about evil.

    This article is thorough, clear, accurate, and very damning. We must not allow our elected officials to lie about what the law says.

    This cannot be constitutional. It defies common sense as a storm in the East affects the hunters' rights 250 miles to the West. Why not declare an emergency for 4 or 10 years, then use that as an excuse to take guns from people and lock the the people up? You NC'er's are plain stupid to have laws like this.

    I live in North Carolina, and even on the day Ms. Perdue made her decision the hurricane in question was not expected to affect any but a small slice of coastal NC... here in the Triad, about in the middle of the state, the ten-day forecast was (and still is) for clear and sunny weather. Governor Perdue issued a weather state of emergency for the whole state, 90% of which was likely to face no danger worse than getting a sunburn while mowing the grass.

    Good article. Of course the Governor lied - she is a politician and her mouth was moving.
