Riots In Charlotte

Postby Cadit » Fri Sep 23, 2016 4:51 pm

Many people don't know that the State of Emergency law in North Carolina was repealed a couple years ago. Here is the jest of that removal by the GRNC.

Bateman v. Perdue: Concealed carry during emergencies

As you may recall, Grass Roots North Carolina was a plaintiff in Bateman v. Perdue, when we sued Governor Beverly Perdue over the State of Emergency gun ban, arguing that the ban constituted an unconstitutional violation of the Second Amendment. We did so after the town of King, NC posted the entire town against firearms in advance of a pending snowstorm, and after Gov. Perdue declared a statewide State of Emergency, in response to an advancing hurricane, on the opening day of dove season, making criminals of thousands of dove hunters. GRNC and other plaintiffs won the lawsuit, and the law was struck down as unconstitutional under the Second Amendment.

Repealing the State of Emergency gun ban

The following year, GRNC lobbied for repeal of the now-unconstitutional law, only to find resistance from Republican leaders who wanted to replace the law with yet another (probably unconstitutional) gun ban. Thanks to the tens of thousands of contacts you provided to legislators, GRNC prevailed and the State of Emergency gun ban was entirely repealed.

Under Castle Doctrine, citizens may respond with deadly force

GRNC also notes that any attempt by rioters to illegally enter a motor vehicle occupied by a law-abiding citizen would likely invoke our Castle Doctrine law, under which forceful and unlawful entry into your occupied home, workplace or motor vehicle creates a rebuttable legal presumption that you have a reasonable fear of imminent death or great bodily harm – the legal standard under which a citizen may respond with deadly force. GRNC shepherded the passage of Castle Doctrine/Stand Your Ground in 2011.

In sum, GRNC strongly encourages concealed handgun permit-holders to carry firearms at all times while transiting apparently lawless areas within Mecklenburg County.
Thought any of you living in the Great NC might like to know this.
