Sent this to Senator Neal:
First i want to thank you for a superb session recently. I really appreciate all the work you have done to further strengthen our 2nd Amendment rights. It is representatives like you that we really need more of in service. That being said, we need your help on another bill. SB594 specifically. The Bill would eliminate the clause of restricting firearms during a declared state of emergency. During such a time is when North Carolina residents would need to defend themselves the most i believe. The Governor has been dancing around this statute and acting illegally in her office. By declaring states of emergency but saying that GS 14.288-7 does not apply. The Governor can not simply choose which laws to enact, and which laws not to enact. Her primary reason for doing so is to try and keep the statute on the books, and justify saying that it is never used so it is not an issue. If this truly is the case then it should be removed from the books. By leaving it on the books it provides the opportunity to strip citizens of their rights when the Governor deems it necessary. I realize that the GA is out of session currently but this bill is sitting in "Ref To Com On Rules and Operations of the Senate." I urge you to do what you can to get this bill moving and approved. Again, Thank you for your help.
