North Carolina needs a new governor

And a new state legislature that will clean up some of the accumulated crap left over from past Democrat controlled state government.  From Confederate Yankee:

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

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.
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.
We've dealt with this bit of Democrat-generated stupidity before.

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.

If we look at Google Maps, that means that a carry permit holder in Wilson dining at the Cracker Barrel is perfectly legal, but the permit holder a block to the east filling up on gas at the Kangaroo Express is now a criminal. 


Update: I'd forgotten we were stuck with this crap last year as well.

An honest person going out to scrounge for supplies after a natural disaster like an earthquake or hurricane as well as someone who has to go to work or to seek medical attention in an area experiencing riots has a greater need to be armed.

The Democrat National Convention is coming to Charlotte next year.  What if your daughter worked as a nurse in a downtown clinic there?  She would need to show up because of the greater need for medical services the Convention will require.  Someone will need to treat all the extra cases of venereal disease such a gathering will bring to town.  Not to mention all the bottles, candles and other objects vacuum locked into men's anuses that will have to be extracted (and all the hamsters, gerbils and white mice that will need to be rescued from colons).  Then there is the ever present possibility that the scum and filth which make up the core of the Democrat Party will pull a 1968 and let their true natures come out to play.

Wouldn't you want your little girl to have a .40 caliber Glock tucked into her purse when she threads her way through that mass of human debris?
