This weekend I watched as two men on motorcycles decided to ride on the wrong side of the road to get to the Surf City McDonalds. Though the entrances are poorly marked for visitors, this was a dangerous choice they made. They ignored the signs.
When people ask what the gun laws in North Carolina are I tell them to simply watch for signs. If a business posts “No Concealed Weapons,” that also applies to open carry. It is their business and they have the right, so abide by it. Where it gets confusing is if a large business (like Walmart) posts signs at one entrance but not another.
Use common sense and good judgment.
I would like to give a great big shout out to all the lawmakers of Kansas who are working toward what may become a nationwide model for open carry. The votes are in and if signed by the governor, Kansas will become an open-carry state which will remove town and county restrictions, making the entire state uniform.
I would also like to say thank you to 9-year-old Kamryn Renfro of Colorado for shaving her head to show her love and devotion to her 11-year-old friend Delany, who lost her hair going through chemo. I would also say how disgusted I am at the school system and any person related to the decision to expel this beautiful child for such an unselfish act. What happened to “Bald is Beautiful?” People, we have to stop taking ourselves so seriously and start to see the magic around us. Why should anyone ever be punished for such a thing? That whole school board should shave their heads to show their support. Stupid, stupid people.
In the next week or so we should have our “Special Use Permit” package ready to be submitted to the Town of Holly Ridge for our indoor gun range. I will keep you all posted as when the public meeting will be held for public support. This is a very exciting time!
Remember knowledge is power, and may the force always be with you!
