    This hammer-head caused a stand off with local police and fired several shots. They arrested him, and found several firearms in his home. But only charged him with "Caring to the Terror of the Pubic". I fired of an angry letter to the paper and DA's office. This law on NC's books is almost 200 years old and goes back to Old English Law. I feel someone is trying stir up anti-gun sediment in the community. This is an inappropriate charge for the offence. I admit, has nothing to do with Open Carry, but is still interesting.

    They must have been digging to stir up anti-gun sediment.

    Maybe they were stirring up anti-gun sentiment instead?

    I think he got it right.

    Sediment is where you are going to find the bottom-feeders with anti-gun sentiments.


    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    "Caring to the Terror of the Pubic"

    I'm still scratching my head over this one. Terrorizing someone's genitals is just plain unacceptable.

    Thanks to all for the spelling corrections. I typed my post while at work, supposedly on break, while three beepers were going off at once. This case has really gotten under my skin....everyday, the local media has something new about the "massive firepower" found inside the home. I shudder to think what I would be charged with if "they" ever searched my home. I called the local DA's office to inquire about the charges and was told to "mind my own business". I for one will hound the local media with e-mails and letters demanding a explanation. Who knows, maybe "they" will show up at my home next, and we can have a "real" gun rights discussion on my front lawn.

    Mind your own business??

    Sounds like someone needs a attitude adjustment.

    As for thefront lawn discussion - that sounds like an idea.

    That's a pretty flippant attitude for a public servant, would'nt you agree?

    Dustoff...Do you know who you spoke with? PM me the details, and the question you want answered. The DA knows not to tell me to mind my own business!

    I can't stand it the way the media portrays it like having firearms in your home is illegal. I don't care if they find 1 or 500. It's not illegal. Yet the media, the way they write it up, makes it sound worse than the charges that led to the search of the home.
