I’ll be working on something for Android users. I carried an Android device for many years, so I feel your pain.
Lee County, North Carolina, centered around Sanford, NC, has voted 4-3 to remove all anti-gun/anti-concealed carry laws. This is the first of two required votes.
This is good news. The proposed new resolution will not only allow ordinary citizens to carry concealed in all county buildings, it will permit county employees to carry concealed as well.
There were two department heads that spoke out about it and what’s interesting is how the Department of Social Services – Child Protective Services manager told people about her unsupported fears and projected her opinion on the people who worked for her,
“Having guns in the building either being brought in by clients or brought in by employees increases exponentially the chances of something happening,” Shearer said. “People don’t want to work in a place where such incidents could happen.”
The Director of the County Health Department actually asked his employees.
He recalled witnessing a fight in the hallway at work and law enforcement was called, but said if someone had pulled out a weapon, many people could have been hurt before law enforcement would have arrived.
Jones said concealed carry permit holders are law abiding citizens who go through background and mental health checks to get these permits so that they are able to protect themselves, protect others and create a deterrent for criminal activity.
Face it, gun grabbers. When 2/3rds of the County Health Department says “The bad people are already bringing guns in, we should be able to carry as well,” you’ve lost.
The next vote will be on October 6th.

There’s lots to do at the YMCA. Apparently getting shot is now one more.
And who have they arrested?
Every YMCA I’ve been inside in the last few years has a “No Guns” sign. How well did that work out for them?
The headline makes it sound like the guy got arrested for spanking his child. The story tells a different tale.
Hariston is accused of spanking a nine-year-old girl multiple times on her buttocks, back and hands with a wooden paddle and a belt. The alleged assault caused severe abrasions to all areas that were struck, according to warrants.
That sounds a lot more serious.
Looks like he may be adding child abuse to his convictions.
He’s just a misguided youth, right?
Or is it something much more serious?
In many states, a 17 year old criminal wouldn’t be readily identifiable by the public because their criminal records are sealed. We’d just assume that it was the random act of a child, not as the considered choice of an already established criminal.
Is it any wonder that the usual suspects are trying to “reform” the law that allows 16 and 17 year olds to be tried as adults in North Carolina? Don’t be fooled by the “low level crimes.” They don’t want 16 and 17 year olds to be charged as adults for anything.
Good to know they already have the suspect in custody
So who do they have?
With a record like that I believe he qualifies as the usual suspect.
It sounds like an idyllic life, doesn’t it?
The 59-year-old Durham resident usually had a bite to eat and left his lab for a brisk 30-minute walk on campus or through nearby Chapel Hill neighborhoods. Typically, he returned cheerful and invigorated by the midday exercise.
But even in peaceful Lefty Paradise Chapel Hill, danger lurks.
Chapel Hill police said Liu suffered a severe head injury during a robbery at the intersection of Ransom Street and West University Drive about 1 p.m. Wednesday. Prosecutors said during a brief court hearing Thursday afternoon that the two men who robbed Liu hit him in the head with a rock.
The age old weapon, probably the first weapon ever “invented.” There’s no background check on rocks. Yet they still kill just as efficiently as they ever did.
And who preys on internationally renowned research professors?
People who should have been in prison instead of wandering about Chapel Hill looking for easy victims.
Keep in mind, the President of the UNC system went to a lot of trouble to make sure everyone knew that UNC was a “Gun Free Zone,” and students, faculty, and staff were prohibited by law from carrying a firearm. It would be interesting to find out if these two suspects, who were from Durham, came in to the UNC area because they knew that their victims would be disarmed.
It’s not the weapon. It’s the criminal mind that wields them.
