I need to find the Governor's full proclamation to see if i can still carry.
Good point, I haven't thought about that.
I'm so glad I don't live in NC anymore. Unfortunately I still visit a bit since our families are there. Isn't a state of emergency when you really need to arm yourself? There's chaos, emergency personnel are tied up with so many issues, perhaps no power, no phones, etc. That's just counter-intuitive.

No Guns, No Safety, No Peace.
Your right to carry during this type state of emergency is not affected. This question has come up in the past and the governor specifically addressed it the last time.
But she has to address it in each proclamation. I haven't been able to find a copy of this one yet.e
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

Finally found it. We can still carry and can still drink. (Not at the same time guys)

I was thinking about this today actually. Good to hear that yall are still able to carry under this situation but it still sucks that the Gov. of NC can suspend your right to carry at all.
Just a side note, if its regulated and licensed by the government, its not a right. Its a privilege. Carry on...
