That was two weeks after Gov. Roy Cooper declared a state of emergency in North Carolina and 11 days after President Donald Trump declared the COVID-19 pandemic a national emergency.

    Exclamation

    "The RIGHT to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed"

    How is it that a regulation or a LAW to buy a gun in any of the given states was not challenged in Court?

    Give them the finger, they take the hand. I don't care if a Sheriff is a Liberal, he does NOT have a Right to ignore the 2nd Amendment.

    I moved to NC in the mid 80ties. The permit system was that you needed someone to vouch for you in order to get a permit to buy. That person also had to live in the county. You could get as many permits as you wanted to pay for. I believe this was a Jim Crow law that is still on the books.

    Also, at the time, LEOs were not allowed to carry off duty without the permission of the Chief LEO, and then only in their jurisdiction. I heard open carry was legal, but never saw anyone doing it. No CCW license was available for civilians.
