    Ellmers plans to carry gun in public

    http://www.wral.com/news/local/politics/story/8977434/

    I wonder how long before they exempt themselves from the NC Gun Laws and limitations....for their "safety."

    "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes...Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."

    I'm really hoping Ellmers won't go that route. She's certainly not a career politician, so I'm hoping she'll push for change for everyone and not just politicians.

    Sent note of encouragement

    I thought her comments in the article were insightful, and sent her an email of encouragement, as well as an invite to stop by OCDO.

    Because the only rally you cant carry at is a rally held at a private hospital dealing with medical issues, and a rally held on state property. Can't cite because im on the iPad, and copy paste is kind of hard.
    Taurus PT1911 .45 ACP. Carried in condition 1, with a total of 25 rounds.

    That would be that wonderfully vaguely worded statute rearing its ugly head again...

Violation of this subsection shall be a Class 1 misdemeanor. It shall be presumed that any rifle or gun carried on a rack in a pickup truck at a holiday parade or in a funeral procession does not violate the terms of this act.

    (b) For the purposes of this section the term "dangerous weapon" shall include those weapons specified in G.S. 14‑269, 14‑269.2, 14‑284.1, or 14‑288.8 or any other object capable of inflicting serious bodily injury or death when used as a weapon.

    (c) The provisions of this section shall not apply to a person exempted by the provisions of G.S. 14‑269(b) or to persons authorized by State or federal law to carry dangerous weapons in the performance of their duties or to any person who obtains a permit to carry a dangerous weapon at a parade, funeral procession, picket line, or demonstration from the sheriff or police chief, whichever is appropriate, of the locality where such parade, funeral procession, picket line, or demonstration is to take place.
