    Let's face it, in this litigious society common law just doesn't cut it anymore and rights fade with every passing year your legislators make to please their special interests or agenda. It seems its just time to make Open Carry defined by law because, constitutional rights seem to be shredded with every passing year in the law makers offices.

    Am I wrong?
    What else can you do when acceptable "limits" are placed on your God-given rights and the constitution that spells it all out?
    How else can you possibly fight the local counties, cities, and the state who are slowly accepting the idea of a police state?

    Subsisto tutus. Subsisto secundus emendatio.

    Tyrants come in all shapes and sizes, as do those who do their bidding. Anyone who tells you that the threat of tyranny is long over, is either a fool, an enemy, or BOTH.

    Honestly, I think we are better off letting this one stay common law. as soon as a bill entered the legislature, I fear it would quickly be so filled with exceptions and limitations (like our concealed carry permits) that we would actually be worse off than we are now.

    As it stands, most sheeple have no idea this is the current state of law in North Carolina and therefore no one is raising any cain about it. My fear would be making an issue of something and coming out worse off than we are now.



    While the "going armed to the terror of the public" statute, is a potential probelm (primarliy with misinformed police), I think challenging it, (either in court or through efforts to education polcie departments, etc.) is the better course of action.





    Just my $.02

    Laws do notstate what IS legal, theystate what is NOT legal. We don't need a law for open carry because it's legal. What we need to do is deal with the currently existing laws that make carrying under circumstances illegal.
