What about NCGS 14-288.7, prohibiting weapons during a declared state of emergency? Can the governor pick and choose which parts of the law that are to be enforced?
NCGS 14-288.7. Transporting Dangerous Weapon or Substance During Emergency; Possessing Off Premises; Exceptions.
(a) Except as otherwise provided in this section, it is unlawful for any person to transport or possess off his own premises any dangerous weapon or substance in any area:
(1) In which a declared state of emergency exists; or
(2) Within the immediate vicinity of which a riot is occurring.
If you really want to read up on that try reading the NC emergency management plans and authorities granted in time of emergencies.
I remember when a storm didn't cause a state of emergency.

You are only paranoid until you are right - then you are a visionary.
Once again, I'll give this little example. The Gov used the SOE to override Federal trucking laws at one point last year. She did away with the hours of service restrictions for in state drivers hauling fuel and heating oil. The entire point of a SOE is that the laws are changed, amended, tweaked for some reason. Oh and Bev's favorite, Federal monetary assistance.
All that said, there is a law suit working it's way through the system that should strike the ability to limit lawful carry.
