    New Poll in NC

    http://polldaddy.com/poll/4648074/

    Do you support or oppose HB63 Firearm In Locked Motor Vehicle/Parking Lot?

    I posted it here, as there is no stipulation that you must live in NC to vote.

    while i think i should be able to keep/carry where ever I want without a law to tell me i can, I think this is a step in the right direction. of course, i just briefly glanced over the law, and havent heard a debate for both sides

    Actually, such a law answers a necessary question where rights conflict. Property owners should have the absolute right to disallow firearms on their property. The owner of the vehicle wants to exercise his right to carry in his car.

    A conflict arises when the owner of both the vehicle and gun works for the property owner who bars firearms. Should he at least be allowed to leave his gun in his car, parked in their parking lot while at work, disarmed according to the property owner? As the courts would likely resolve this conflict in favor of the property owner if the law is silent, it is reasonable for the law not to be silent.

    Much like an embassy is considered, under black-letter international law, to be the sovereign soil of the represented country, even though it is physically located where silent law would consider it the sovereign soil of the host nation, the car could be, by black-letter law, can be considered to be an extension of the owner's home, even though silent law would have the property owner's wishes holding sway as to what is or is not allowed on his property.

    Hence the need for a law stating that the property owner cannot deny you permission to keep a gun locked in your car when he otherwise permits you and your car on his property.

    Many states consider vehicles to be an extension of the individual's home. Ours does, and specifically mentions this in more than one of our gun laws.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.
