I’ll Be Carrying Concealed At The North Carolina State Fair. You’re Welcome.

It may be tough to remember after six years under a President that routinely ignores them, but laws are meant to be enforced, not arbitrarily discarded or ignoredor amended based upon the whims of politicians and bureaucrats.

North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory and State Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler aren’t fans of a 2013 revision to the state’s gun laws, which expanded rights to carry concealed weapons in many places, including the state fairgrounds.

Troxler intends to post signs banning concealed carry at the North Carolina State Fair because he chooses to believe that the law doesn’t mean what it says.

A gun rights group in the state, Grass Roots North Carolina (GRNC), is heading to court today (Monday) to challenge Troxler’s refusal to follow the law, and a legal expert says that that their case is sound:

More @ Bearing Arms


  1. Judge upheld the firearms ban at the State Fair

  2. I should be surprised at this, but nothing surprises me anymore with our so-called government. The laws get passed, but are not enforced. Farm Bureau Ins.came out this morning in favor of the ban.

    I saw somewhere that they would be running metal detectors at the gates.

  3. Rule of Law and Constitutional Amendments don't matter anymore. A judge can just smack his gavel and make it so or strike it down on a whim.....

  4. Very.... the very point of Max Velocity's essays on Rightful Liberty.... the system is broken and not just a little..... Sad to say but I think that the end of this Great Nation is close at hand.

    Its the little things like this where politicians pay lip service to the constituents about what they believe and then do something completely different. Death by a thousand cuts..... we as a nation are bleeding out and no one is trying to stop it.... they offer little band aids all the while making larger slices.... I fear for our future....

    1. We'll go further down into the abyss or some incidence will be the straw that breaks the camel's back.

  5. Like in NC, 61% of the people voted against gay marriages and some imbecile
    judge, Cogburn, over-ruled the vote. How can this be? Totally unconstitutional.
    Many of these judges are part of the communist plot to debase the morals of
    America. In Asheville, the communists even had the nerve to place a rainbow
    (gay) flag on the courthouse. Resist!
