North Carolina Senate Bill Promotes Firearms Class Warfare


A bill just introduced in the North Carolina Senate seeks to congeal what has slowly become the two distinct classes of gun ownership: the elite, political class, and the less worthy “common” class.
Initially, it was district attorneys and judges, and now Senate Bill 78 would provide for off-duty correctional officers to carry concealed weapons without a permit–something you can’t do.
It has also come to Grass Roots North Carolina’s attention that a House bill will likely be introduced soon to allow for concealed carry by politicians and staff in legislative buildings–something else you can’t do!

Which Class Are You In?

If you’re in the political class, then good for you! The State Legislature is pulling out all the stops to fast-track bills so you can protect yourself and your family without all that pesky paperwork and the boundaries that the common class is subjected to. Why, after all, should the state’s general citizenry, the people who pay the salaries of the government employees, be on par with the “political class” of gun owners?

In Support of Law Enforcement

Make no mistake, Grass Roots North Carolina (GRNC) is 100% supportive of law enforcement. In fact, correctional officers, judges and DAs, as well as legislators and their staff carrying defensive handguns would be nothing but positive. Yet, there ought NOT be two classes of citizenry in an ostensibly free state.

  1. Sounds good to me. Make the rules the same for everyone. In fact, in Minnesota, permit holders are allowed to carry in the Capitol complex, as are legislators who have a permit. I've even done it when I was there to visit my legislators.
