Kudos to the Second Amendment Foundation.

"A federal district court judge in North Carolina has just struck down that state’s emergency power to impose a ban on firearms and ammunition outside the home during a declared emergency, ruling that the provision violates the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms."

We have a similar bill just came out of committee with an "ought to pass" here in Maine. Support seems strong. This is the way we will take it back, state by state. IMO

Gov. Beverly Purdue is the governor who suggested the suspension of the coming elections a couple months ago. I am extremely glad to see her police state crap slapped down by the SAF. How could the people of North Carolina elect such a leftie? I always considered North Carolina to be conservative. Too many illegals must have change the demographics.

It'sall about control, isn't it?

They have no idea what they're doing. Maybe God can forgive them; i'm not so sure.

SAF probably deserves some credit but you can take to the bank that Grass Roots North Carolina (GRNC) is the instigator and prime mover behind all of this. GRNC is one of the most, if not the most, effective pro-2AM state orgs in the country. This is not an accident, GRNC has been at it since 1994 and uses GOA methodology.

On NC: a Dem holdover mainly because the Repubs have bungled it so badly for several decades, pure incompetence. The Rs finally appear to have their act together. Late to the conservative party and demographic changes have not helped but watch what happens in Nov. 2012.

On the Gov.: Perdue lied, chickens died. She is one and done, not running for re-election that she wanted to suspend. (She rode in on Obama coat-tails in 2008, back to Chapel Hill for her.)

Actually there are rather extreme differences between a law that is held unconstitutional by a federal judge and a new law passed by a state legislature.

The constitution has superiority over any statute that any legislature, can repeal at any time of it's choosing. Although it does seem that the federal legislature does that to the constitution and bill of rights, on a daily basis.
