I hadn't heard anything either. I'm hoping you're right, but fearing you're not.We were in a state of emergency twice in the last year, and I never heard of anyone getting in trouble for CCW. I'm sure it would have been picked up on the radar if it had happened.
I'm a relative newcomer to NC, and for a southern state, it sure has a Yankee feel to it sometimes. Florida, lived in Miami for a while, might as well been living in Cuba, Arizona, hear great things. Indiana, lifetime CCW's...hmmm...Man Flordia and Arizona are looking much better all the time.
Interesting point. I'm pretty sure I've heard them call for a "state of emergency" because it was declared a "disaster area". Not sure how they're related.is there a difference between a declared emergency, and a declared disaster? Around here, all I hear are disaster declarations.
Just look at what we let die last year. We let the carry where alcohol is sold and consumed in restaurants (H831), castle doctrine (H476), CHP valid in parks (H830).Surely...SURELY...this is something we can get "fixed" in our CCW law? If not the "no carrying in places that serve alcohol" provision (despite the fact that we can't carry and drink anyway, and SOME of us are teetotalers ANYHOW), or the ridiculous "no carry into places that charge admission" BS?
After all, our new Governor was NRA Endorsed, right? :whistling:
Also, who declares them? Here, mayors can do emergency ordinances, but the state declares disasters - it is all spelled out who has what power to make what declaration, and what that declaration allows. Usually, the biggest motivation for declaring a disaster area is to qualify for Federal funds.Interesting point. I'm pretty sure I've heard them call for a "state of emergency" because it was declared a "disaster area". Not sure how they're related.
The 'castle doctrine' is not in affect anymore???Just look at what we let die last year. We let the carry where alcohol is sold and consumed in restaurants (H831), castle doctrine (H476), CHP valid in parks (H830).
We need to be a pain in our reps butts. Call, write (real snail mail AND e-mail), and call. Weekly if needed.
Never took effect to begin with. Got lost in committee.The 'castle doctrine' is not in affect anymore???
Go to the state web site I listed in the above two posts, look up the bill I listed and read each one. They will list who started the bill and who co-sponsored them. Get the contact info for each.I need to start writing my reps weekly. Can anyone give me info on what would be the best way to get around to this?
Most particularly, being able to carry in places that serve alcahol, and places that charge admission.
