    Legislative Madness in NC?

    This is from economics/survival guru George Ure...


    The story about lawmaking madness in North Carolina in this weekend's Greensboro News-Record reveals that things like whether or not clotheslines can be regulated are coming up review.



    But here's the part that caught my eye:

    "District attorneys and assistant district attorneys would be able to carry weapons into courthouses under S11, providing the lawyers in question held concealed carry permits and completed a weapons retention training course.

    Prosecutors would have to lock away their firearms before going into the courtroom itself though, ensuring there won’t be crossfire since judges are allowed to carry a pistol under their robes."

    No mention about defense attorneys....am I the only one who worries about equal protection statues?

    Locking up their weapons to prebent cross fire.. WT>>>. Exactly howmany shooting are there in NC court houses.

    Kansas just passed a law allowing prosecuters to carry in the court house. No provision for locking up due to cross fire.

    How many? Probably next to none.

    The thinking behind this might be simply deterrence. And there might also be a bit of mistrust directed at some defense attorneys.

    Just a thought.

    My son to be brother in law is an Assitant DA in NC, and I have been helping him learn to shoot so he can eventually get his CC permit. I think the reason they are allowing only DA's to CC in the court houses is due to the number of threats they receive. My b-i-l has already received several, and hasn't been with the DA for that long.

    Last year or two Northampton County I believe a defendant got a Deputy's gun and caused a fair bit of damage before escaping or being shot. Whooped up on his defense attorney either there or in a different court.

    I use to work in a courthouse and from time to time, some of the people finding out they where going to prison for a long would freak out and the bailiffs would have to strong arm them a bit to get order in the court. I guess it can get pretty crazy in there
