    Since we're now under a State of Emergance (see http://www.salisburypost.com/Area/01...e-of-emergency) we have to leave our guns at home. See this topic: http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum41/15676.html

    Hey guys, I'm new to the forum. I have read most of the posts in the NC section already, it is a great source of knowledge. I was not aware of the state of emergency restrictions in our law until I saw it here. I don't like it at all.

    This is ridiculous that just because a portion of the state got snow, everyone in the entire 100 counties has their rights trampled and left unable to defend themselves. Any suggestions on how to go about getting this changed, or who to complain to?

    Funny thing though, just like most gun laws, the people who enforce them don't really know them. Just saying....

    I'm glad I chimed into the site today. I didn't even connect Perdue's State of Emergency with the firearm on my belt.

    How long does it last?

    When I took my CCW course2 years ago I asked my instructor about this very thing. I had previously heard that it was not legal to carry during a declared state of emergency. It was not covered in my study materials, so I asked about it. He told me that it was legal for me to carry under those circumstances. Headded that is when you may need it the most.

    Ironically, the instructor is a long term officer onmy county'sSheriff's Dept.!

    This is a law that needs to be repealed.

    Call, write, and visit your legislators and urge them to introduce a bill to repeal it--not to mention many other absurd"gun-freezones!"

    It ends when she say it does! Keep an eye out on the executiveorders page!



    "


    Section 7. This Executive Order shall become effective immediately and shall

    continue until it is terminated in writing.

    I know that a SOE effects concealed carry, but it also effects open carry? Its ridiculous either way, but taking out OC is just plain dumb.....

    The provision prohibits the transport of any firearm off your property during the State of Emergency. Meaning no CC, no open carry, no putting your shotgun in the trunk of your car to go hunting or to the skeet range, etc, etc. A really stupid law that probably most folks don't know about.

    If it were enforced, a lot of folks could have been arrested back in the fall when we had one after a hurricane and it was at the beginning of dove hunting season...anyone who went hunting or to the range during that time could have been charged.....really, really dumb!!!!

    Write your state reps and senators about this... It takes about 10 mins to send them an email or type up a letter. With the current make up of our state's legislative bodies we may not get it changed, but we can bring it to their awareness.

    I have 3 letters ready to go out now to the state reps, but about SOEs and concealed carry. Also about the alcohol and carry (51% law isnt too much to ask for, is it?)
