    It is also a misdemeanor under North Carolina law for a person to transport or
    possess, off his or her own premises, a dangerous weapon in an area during a declared
    state of emergency, or in the vicinity of a riot. N.C. Gen. Stat. § 14-288.7 A concealed
    handgun permit does not allow a permittee to carry a weapon in these areas. N.C. Gen.
    Stat. § 14-415.11(c)


    What can we do to try to strike this from the lawbooks. A state of emergency is easily declared by the Govenor and now your right to carry has been effectively limited to your "premise."

    Take for example like in Louisianna during and after Hurricane Katrina, just image your forced to evacuate your house but you cannot take your firearm with you for self defense.

    *I currently am still listed as an Indiana resident, but currently stationed in NC. So im not sure if me suggesting a bill, or even trying to get anything moving would have effect. But as long as I live in this state I figure we can try to push for getting rid of alot of the useless "sensible" gun laws, where we come back to the fact on paper it sounds good but in practice leaves many gaps.

    I wonder if anyone has been charged with carrying in the vicinity of a riot, when they found themselves in one (NOT "went to" one)...

    "Well, sorry officer - these rioters forgot to pencil in this event on my schedule for the day, or I would have known to leave my CCW at home!" :upeyes:

    Lord, we have some frakked-up laws in this state...
