NRA Promotes Federal Firearms Regulations

One self-described Second Amendment advocacy group claims that opposition to a gun control nullification bill currently being considered by the North Carolina legislature is coming from an unlikely source: sheriffs.

The National Rifle Association-Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) reported on May 6 that the North Carolina Sheriff’s Association (NCSA) is trying to scuttle House Bill 562 because of a provision in the measure that would repeal “the requirement that law-abiding citizens must obtain permission from their local sheriff before acquiring a handgun.”

It is sad that sheriffs — the counties’ highest elected constitutional officers — would stand between North Carolinians and their natural right to keep and bear arms, especially when that stance places the lawmen in direct defiance of if not the letter then the spirit of the Second Amendment to the Constitution.

  1. Why would they give up their seat of power over who can and can't defend themselves? They like their Jim Crowe era 'law' which forces people to bow and scrape before the office in order to get a pistol. Wife and I said 'screw that', and got our CCW to avoid the 'permission slips' we'd have to get in order to exercise our 2A.

    What's NOT being done enough, is naming the unconstitutional anti-gun sheriffs and promoting those do-right constitutional sheriffs who are fully honoring their oaths.

    1. I've seen stories on some, but a complete list would be excellent. Great recommendation.

  2. How does a gun dealer determine that a buyer is a citizen and protected by 2A? Or should they sell to every wetback who walks in?

    1. $100 will buy you a handgun in most cities, so I don't think it would make much of a difference.
