Guns banned in King, NC

Did everyone read about the City of King, NC passsing a curfew, banning the carrying of guns in vehicles because of a snow emergency. They pulled the ban after four hours because of citizen outrage, but that mayor and police chief need to be ousted asap. They do not trust their own citizens with guns. During an emergency is when citizens need their guns. It was on the Drudge Report, but now you have to Google or Youtube for "King - Emergency".

They also banned the sale of alcohol.

That would affect me more.

KING, N.C. — Authorities lifted a curfew and alcohol restrictions in King on Sunday, but said a state of emergency declaration remained in effect until Monday.

Authorities said the state of emergency declaration would continue until Monday 9 a.m., barring any unforeseen circumstances or severe changes.

Effective Sunday afternoon, alcohol restrictions and a curfew were lifted. All other remaining restrictions would continue until Monday, said Paula May, King police chief.

Other restrictions include a ban on the sale or purchase of any type of firearm, ammunition, explosive or any possession of such items off a person’s own premises.

Also on Sunday, the emergency shelter established by the American red Cross at West Stokes High School was closed.

“We appreciate the support and cooperation of everyone with our efforts to keep the citizens of King safe,” May said.

The state of emergency was declared Friday due to severe weather.

Neat thing is that a state highway runs right through the middle of town, which means every single car driving down that highway was breaking the law, as they had explosive gas in their tanks...

At least that'show the article I read phrased it.

If there's an emergency, I'm armed. Like I'm gonna depend on the police when they can't get to me anyway.

WTF, over.

The police chief and mayor should be fired off the roof of city hall. If I lived there I wouldn't stop until they were.
