” This should drive Joe Biden nuts: instead of restricting the gun rights of North Carolina citizens, the NC House voted to extend them
(WRAL) State House lawmakers voted late Monday night to allow concealed weapons on college campuses, state property, greenways, bike trails, at sporting events and in businesses that serve alcohol.
Proponents of House Bill 937 says it protects and expands the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens while increasing punishment for those who use guns in the commission of crimes. It also requires more rapid reporting of mental health adjudications to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, in accordance with federal mandates.”

” Eagle Scout Cole Withrow was just a few weeks from graduating with honors from his North Carolina high school, but now the active church member is facing a felony weapons charge and a precarious future after accidentally leaving a shotgun in his pickup truck in the school parking lot.
Most members of the Johnston County community, just southeast of Raleigh believe the 18-year-old is paying far too big a price for an honest mistake. Withrow had been skeet shooting with friends a day before, and only noticed he had left his shotgun in his truck on Monday morning as he reached to grab his book bag, said family friend Kimberly Boykin. When he realized his mistake, rather than leave school grounds, he went to the front office to call his mother for help.”

” In those communities where the government hasn’t squelched a homeowner’s right to bear arms, burglars take a big gamble when they decide to invade a house. In Fayetteville, North Carolina, two men lost that gamble when they died in a gunfight with a homeowner whose house they had invaded in the middle of the night.
According to police reports, when the suspects tried to enter the Fayetteville home, the homeowner shot at them. After first exchanging gunfire with the homeowner, the men fled. Two of them were later discovered dying of their wounds, one a few doors away, and the other on the shoulder of a road a few miles from the house. The homeowner also sustained gunshot wounds, but there is no further information about his condition.”

” An Elm City woman shot at two men who broke into her home on Tonya Road Friday morning, her husband told WRAL News.
Chris Griffin said his wife, who had stayed home sick from work, heard a noise around 11 a.m. and then saw two men outside her house. When she heard them start kicking in the back door, she hid in the bedroom closet with a cellphone and a pistol.
The men ransacked the house, and when they opened the closet door, she fired at them, Griffin said. One man was struck, authorities said.”

” “It would be a monumental mistake on his(Baucus) part” to support federal gun control legislation, Reichner said.
Gun rights carry sway in Montana. The state Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks says Montana “boasts more hunters per capita than any other state in the nation.” State lawmakers have been discussing measures to expand gun rights. And a pro-gun group, the Montana Shooting Sports Association, has set up a website that is updated with Baucus’ public statements on gun policy.
Other Democratic senators that Republicans are watching closely include Mark Begich of Alaska, Kay Hagan of North Carolina, Tim Johnson of South Dakota, Mary Landrieu of Louisiana and Mark Pryor of Arkansas.
Democrats control the Senate, but if Republicans pick off these seats they could take the chamber.
Pryor already has said he won’t support an assault weapons ban, and the measure is unlikely to clear the Senate. Gun activists still worry that other restrictions they oppose are in the works.
“I don’t think the assault rifle ban, the semi-auto ban, has been the real objective,” said Gary Marbut of the Montana Shooting Sports Association. “I think that is where the rubber meets the road, federal gun registration.”
” Hopes for overhauling the federal tax system are fading in Washington, but in some state capitals, tax reform experiments – some far-reaching – are fast taking shape.
Across the South and Midwest, Republicans have consolidated control of state legislatures and governorships, giving them the power to test long-debated tax ideas.
A similar plan is being pushed by Republicans in North Carolina. Kansas, which cut its income tax significantly last year, may trim further. Oklahoma, which tried to cut income taxes last year, is expected to try again.
“When it comes to getting pro-growth tax reform done this year, the only real opportunities are at the state level,” said Patrick Gleason, director of state affairs for Americans for Tax Reform, the Washington-based anti-tax lobbying group headed by small-government conservative activist Grover Norquist. “

” North Carolina Republican Rep. Sue Myrick said that “government can’t afford to take care of everybody.”
Speaking with The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas, the outgoing congresswoman talked about a society that rewards dependency on government over work.
“A good friend of mind runs a good-sized business , and he had a man who was working for him and at the end of the first time he got his paycheck, he came to his boss and said, ‘You know, I only made $40 more this week than if I had stayed home and been on’ some type of government support that he was getting. ‘So why should I work?’” Myrick said “
” An elementary school in North Carolina censored a first-grade student’s Veterans Day poem by removing a line that referenced her grandfather’s belief in God.
The West Marion Elementary School student was supposed to read the poem at a Nov. 8 Veterans Day ceremony to honor her grandfather, a Vietnam veteran.
The deleted line read: “He prayed to God for peace, he prayed to God for strength.”
An attorney for the Alliance Defending Freedom, which advocates for religious rights and freedoms, criticized the school’s decision. “

” “I was so upset this could happen,” voter Sher Coromalis told MyFox8.com. Coromalis tried at least three times unsuccessfully to cast her vote for Mitt Romney at early polling, and each time her vote was counted as a vote for Obama.
Coromalis also said she had to press the selection button several times before it was accepted, a problem another voter, Marie Haydock, confirmed having. “The frustration is every vote counts,” Haydock told Fox, convinced that numbers reported by recent Gallup and Rasmussen polls actually reflect the people’s choice.
The Guilford County board of elections tried to explain off the mishap, saying this type of problem is definitely “not a conspiracy” and is solved by recalibrating the machine. “It’s not a conspiracy, it’s just a machine that needs to be corrected,” Guilford County Board of Elections Director George Gilbert said trying to calm suspicions of foul play.
Infowars has always held a non-partisan stance on elections and presidential candidates. In the past, we’ve also reported on numerous instances of voter fraud, a practice that is almost as American as apple pie and baseball.
North Carolina was recently at the center of a controversy where nearly 30,000 names of registered voters were actually dead people. “Mainly, what we’re concerned about is the potential [for fraud],” Voter Integrity project director Jay DeLancy told the Charlotte Observer. “Since there is no voter ID law in North Carolina, anybody can walk in and claim to be anyone else.” “
”You frequently come across stories wherein a late-night store clerk has to open fire to defend his life from an armed thug. It’s rare that one of these clerks also has to protect the lives of a loved ones.
But in this shooting case, Theresa Smith of White Plains North Carolina was forced to defend herself, her business, and her beloved husband against a pair of thieves.
It all happened Sunday night around 9:30, just 10 minutes before Smith typically closes up for the night. Her husband, Barry, had just finished closing up at another business and he had come to Mrs. Smith’s Cupboard No. 2 to help her finish up for the night. When he arrived two men – one of them with what appeared to be a black, 9mm semiautomatic handgun – grabbed Mr. Smith, pressed the gun into his back, and forced their way into the store.”
” Out in Hendersonville, NC, an 87 year old lady persuaded two armed robbers to leave her house when they broke in at 3 AM. And by “persuaded” I mean that she showed them the handgun she
was going to shoot them with if they
didn’t exit the premises immediately.
The best part is what the County Sheriff said.
“People have every right to
defend their homes, and should do so,” HendersonCounty Sheriff Charles S. McDonald said after an 87-year-old woman scared off
would-be home invaders by
brandishing a handgun.
“I can’t recommend to people
what they should or should not
do, but I will tell you that first-
degree burglary — breaking into a house while it is occupied — is a serious crime,”McDonald said Saturday.
“Anybody that is going to do
that is risking a lot, so you
really have to ask yourself if
you’re confronted in a situation like that what might be at stake,” he said. “My general advice is ‘aim small, miss small.’” “
Be afraid , be very afraid
” “If you think you’ve seen America
radicalized and Alinskyized over the last four years, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet,” said Farah. “This is the only book this year that isn’t about Obama’s past performance, which we all know from first-hand experience. This is about what he will do if given the chance of a
second term – based on the words and plans of those policymakers closest to him.” “
Meet Larry Keller , a citizen that is not backing down in the face of Federal overreach and bullying tactics . We posted about this invasion/intimidation visit by armed EPA agents and we are pleased to inform you that the victim is not knuckling under to the jackboots . Read on .
” The North Carolina man visited by armed EPA agents after sending an email to a controversial agency official says he’s not satisfied with the explanations about what he considers an excessive response and that he wants changes to agency policies and procedures.
“This isn’t over,” Keller said.
He told Fox News.com that Environmental Protection Agency officials have said the agency followed procedures and that the agents acted appropriately during their visit last month. However, Keller is still invited to come to EPA headquarters to discuss the situation.
Keller said he’s not willing to come to Washington without knowing what will be discussed.
The incident unfolded after Keller sent an email April 27 to the EPA to try to reach Al Armendariz — a regional administrator who was under fire for a YouTube video post days earlier in which he said his enforcement strategy was to “crucify” executives from big oil and gas companies . “
They must be intent on self-destruction . How else does one explain this at a time that the state party is already reeling .
“They’re melting down as a party, but North Carolina Democrats aren’t done yet destroying
themselves ahead of Barack Obama’s nomination. They apparently decided that now
was the perfect time to trot out a bill to attack the self defense rights of North Carolinians.”
Does anybody see anything wrong with this ? I’d call it attempted indoctrination . Is it any wonder the bulk of the ” stimulus” was directed towards the unions , teachers and progressive cronies ?
Is it any wonder it did no good ? You can’t stimulate growth by giving it all to the non-producing classes .
” Last Monday, a high school student in North Carolina engaged his social studies teacher in a heated debate about politics and the two leading presidential candidates. During the exchange, the teacher (an obvious Obama supporter) got very angry with the student and accused him of disrespecting the president. She even went so far as to tell the boy that he could be jailed for speaking ill of Obama.”
