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.
