http://www.resistnet.com/forum/topics/north-carolina-governor http://www.governor.state.nc.us/NewsItems/PressReleaseDetail.aspx?newsItemid=1329 This isn't right. Hurricane Earl's about to arrive on the Eastern coast of the United States, and if I heard correctly it's gonna affect North Carolina through Massachussetts, and North Carolina's already declared a state of emergency. But the thing that rubs salt into the wound of gun owners in North Carolina is a bill called "N.C. General Statute 14-288.7" which explains: ยง 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).) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Earl_(2010) www.ncga.state.nc.us/EnactedLegislation/Statutes/HTML/BySection/Chapter_14/GS_14-288.7.html Doesn't anyone remember what happened to gun rights the last time a hurricane came through and gun rights were attacked? This happened during Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, LA! "No one will be able to be armed. We're gonna take all weapons." That quote alone isn't enough to show that the people's Second Amendment rights were assaulted. They went door-to-door to take weapons away from even the innocent, law-abiding citizens! The Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights said that "the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed", and yet the authorities infringed on it! The bill from above may be different, but it's another way of the people's gun rights being attacked. It doesn't say anything about the same door-to-door confiscations from the Katrina incident, but the bill will make gun owners feel like prisoners in their own home. They can't go outside without leaving their firearms at home. Overall, you can't go anywhere with your weapons, especially your firearms. Inside your home you got your protections, but when you go anywhere during a state of emergency, you're defenseless. This is another sign that we're getting close to an Orwellian police state of tyranny. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kf8trl69kzo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-taU9d26wT4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1Qx0cTze0M "Those that forget history are doomed to repeat it." -George Santayama ...and there's a lot of such amnesia that's gonna turn the United States into a third-world country.

One thing in favor is the people will be able to have their arms at home. During Katrina they went door to door confiscating them.

during a disaster such as this, people tend to go a little crazy and start looting. What if somebody, whos house was washed away in a hurricane, decides they want yours... at any cost.

it is the same thing. In a disaster, people get crazy and you need to be able to defend yourself
