    Gov Cooper uses executive directive to try to force citizen control.

    He cannot get his gun (citizen) control through the legislature so he is getting desperate.

    With gun bills stalled in General Assembly, Cooper pushes forward with safety initiatives

    Greensboro, N.C. – Gov. Roy Cooper on Monday signed a directive to improve gun purchase background checks, better identify potential threats and respond to mass shootings more effectively.

    "Recognizing that the odds are long for our current legislature to make real changes, today I signed an executive directive to my cabinet agencies to build on the work we’ve done to this point," Cooper said in a statement. "Wishing, praying and sending condolences alone just aren’t enough to prevent these tragedies. We have to take action."

    Last week, the governor urged Republican legislative leaders to take action on two gun bills that have been stalled in the House since they were filed five months ago. One would expand permits and background checks to rifles and shotguns, set a three-day waiting period for firearm purchases, ban high-capacity magazines and prohibit anyone under 21 from buying an assault rifle. The other would create a so-called "red flag law" in North Carolina, which would allow a judge to temporarily take away someone's guns if they're found to be an imminent danger to themselves or others.

    Action?

    How's about making crime illegal again?

    Sorry, short of breaking down doors and rounding up anyone who looks cross eyed at someone else or who posts something someone doesn't like there are no actions that can prevent evil from rearing its head in these circumstances. The only hope is to enforce every law with single minded, ruthless zeal and "maybe" evil will be trapped, but even then it's just no guarantee.

    All they need to do is use the laws that have so effectively stopped the drug traffic.

    Wait! Isn't Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, New Yawk City, and Detroit model cities for our future?? Common, we all know that some point the Demoncrats will not have enough perfume to put on their pig! (I did not use dogs, I like dogs and did not want to insult them).

    Didn't vote for Cooper. However, the directives have zero to do with actual law or any form of gun restriction:
    - The SBI will provide behavioral threat assessment training to local law enforcement agencies
    - Information Sharing and Analysis Center’s outreach to businesses and community groups to build awareness of domestic terrorism indicators.
    - promote safe storage of personal firearms
    - will develop guidance for local governments to help share information and reunite loved ones in the wake of a mass shooting or other major incident.
    - DHHS will convene a coalition of suicide prevention stakeholders to update the state’s Suicide Prevention Plan

    All positive steps that will NOT adversely effect law abiding gun owners.

    The Sky Is Falling? Apparently.

    My wishes for Florida. Scrap the License bureau and Licenses. CCL not required, not a Fellon, carry concealed! Period.

    The Woman running that Dept. now, is anti-gun anyhow.
