wow...really, Paul, et al., stepped out last year citing NC constitution article 1, section 30, quote:
Sec. 30. Militia and the right to bear arms.
A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed; and, as standing armies in time of peace are dangerous to liberty, they shall not be maintained, and the military shall be kept under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power. Nothing herein shall justify the practice of carrying concealed weapons, or prevent the General Assembly from enacting penal statutes against that practice. unquote.
nope, nada, nar single word about needing a permit to carry is there, nor a word about OPEN carry being forbidden which NC citizens can do so w/o any kinda of a state level privilege permit! so much for infringing NC citizens rights.
paul states on his GRNC site, quote:
GRNC has received complaints from Mecklenburg County residents over unlawful delays...unquote
waited years to be concerned?
here is the courts injunction
so what does an injunction do to the sheriff or help NC citizens get their state level PPP & privilege permits?
sidebar: several years ago NC’s grassroots president publicly announced on this very forum his group ONLY promoted sane, sober, concealed carry for citizens. Additionally, $30/annum dues and members had no insight, even if point plank asked, into the organizational activities or where their dues went...by rough calculations [guess] it was presumed the group was bringing in three quarters to one million/annum with allegedly no political campaign contributions being made...
PS: at 90$ per permit time 5K citizens equals 400K $$$ that county sheriff's office is missing out on...
