    Judge limits N.C. ban on guns during emergencies

    The Associated Press
    April 2, 2012

    WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.

    A federal judge is giving gun-rights advocates a limited victory after they challenged North Carolina's law banning gun possession in public during a declared emergency.

    The Winston-Salem Journal reports that Judge Malcolm Howard upheld the state law while limiting the state's power to a ban guns except at the owner's own home.

    Howard says while the state has a compelling interest in public safety and crime prevention, the riot control law passed in 1969 goes too far in restricting the constitutional right to gun ownership.

    The ruling closes a lawsuit by gun owners from Stokes, Beaufort and Craven counties, and two gun-rights groups. Howard ruled that the state law can't apply to them.

    North Carolina can appeal the ruling.

    Unbelievable. Wow. Five lies wrapped up in this one sentence summary:

    So, (1) the judge "gave" a (2) "limited victory" by (3) "limiting" the state's ability to ban guns during a state of emergency (4) "except in the home" but this gift (5) only applies to the plaintiffs.

    Forget gun control, how about Media Control!

    NEWSFLASH: The Federal Appeals Court voided the ability of NC to ban guns during a state of emergency because to do so was repugnant to the Second Amendment of the Unites States Constitution. This was no gift. This was no limited victory. This was no limiting of a ban. This does not apply to guns in the home. This applies to everyone, not just the plaintiffs.

    It's only four (4) lies - that "except in the home" is a reference to where North Carolinians could have their guns even when a state of emergency was declared.
