    The law in question

    Grass Roots North Carolina’s planned legal action may hinge on a section of law approved last summer. Previously, people largely were banned from bringing concealed firearms into “any assembly where a fee has been charged for admission,” according to G.S. § 14-269.3.

    Last year’s addendum adds an exception for persons “carrying a handgun if the person has a valid concealed handgun permit.”

    Brian Long, spokesman for the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, declined to comment on the fair’s possible legal defense.

    “There’s been no legal action yet, but we’re gearing up, if there is,” he said.

    State law does forbid the carrying of firearms by civilians inside the State Capitol building, the Executive Mansion and the Western Residence of the Governor. It also allows property owners to ban firearms from their premises, but this exception appears to apply only to “private premises.”

    This is what happens when citizens compromise with politicians.

    Privileges can easily be taken away. All the politicians have to do is force private business to post signage or no license. Or post government enterprise such as a fair. The government cannot take away rights enforced by the courts. It seems the pay for play industry never, or cares to never learn.

    Now those lobbyists have another cause to solicit money from citizens for a right that they should never have to relinquish their hard earned dollars.

    Soon the lobbyists will be soliciting funds to fight this travesty while laughing all the way to the bank.
