Reminding us why Mark Twain once said, "No man's life, liberty nor property is safe while the Legislature is in session," a plan is afoot in the NC Senate to replace the state's "state of emergency" gun ban - which was recently declared unconstitutional - with an even worse gun ban.
GOOD NEWS, BETTER NEWS
As you recall, Grass Roots North Carolina was a plaintiff in Bateman v. Perdue, the lawsuit filed against the state's ban on carrying firearms outside the home during declared states of emergency. Represented by Alan Gura (of D.C. v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago fame), we won: Federal District Court for the Eastern District of NC declared the statute an unconstitutional infringement on the Second Amendment right to bear arms outside the home.
The better news is that the state let the April 30 appeal deadline pass without filing an appeal, making the decision conclusive. Now, however, we might be seeing why Governor Perdue chose not to appeal...
