Where The Hell Is King, North Carolina?

Are you kidding me?

Some one-horse podunk town of 5,000 people in North Carolina just suspends the Constitution and the Second Amendment because of a SNOW STORM????? Even the tinpot dictators in New York or New Jersey have not tried this nonsense.

Where do these petty ante Major Domos come from? And how long will it take before they resign from office?

Not to show my ignorance, but I thought We,The Trampled, hashed all this out after Hurricane Katrina.Wrong again I guess.

Excerpt from Youtube Video:

Part of our conditioning is to accept what the government believes to be in our best interest over our own common sense and burden of personal responsibility.

This Proclamation of A State of Emergency went into place for the city of King, North Carolina on February 5th, 2010, signed by Mayor Jack Warren. Read the proclamation at http://www.carolinaliberty.com/king.pdf. Stokes County Sheriff Department can be reached at 336-593-8787. King City Hall can be reached at 336-983-8265.

North Carolina General Statute:

§ 14‑288.12. Powers of municipalities to enact ordinances to deal with states of emergency.

(a) The governing body of any municipality may enact ordinances designed to permit the imposition of prohibitions and restrictions during a state of emergency.

(b) The ordinances authorized by this section may permit prohibitions and restrictions:

(1) Of movements of people in public places;

(2) Of the operation of offices, business establishments, and other places to or from which people may travel or at which they may congregate;

(3) Upon the possession, transportation, sale, purchase, and consumption of alcoholic beverages;

(4) Upon the possession, transportation, sale, purchase, storage, and use of dangerous weapons and substances, and gasoline; and

(5) Upon other activities or conditions the control of which may be reasonably necessary to maintain order and protect lives or property during the state of emergency.

The ordinances may delegate to the mayor of the municipality the authority to determine and proclaim the existence of a state of emergency, and to impose those authorized prohibitions and restrictions appropriate at a particular time.

(c) This section is intended to supplement and confirm the powers conferred by G.S. 160A‑174(a), and all other general and local laws authorizing municipalities to enact ordinances for the protection of the public health and safety in times of riot or other grave civil disturbance or emergency.

(d) Any ordinance of a type authorized by this section promulgated prior to June 19, 1969 shall, if otherwise valid, continue in full force and effect without reenactment.

(e) Any person who violates any provision of an ordinance or a proclamation enacted or proclaimed under the authority of this section is guilty of a Class 3 misdemeanor. (1969, c. 869, s. 1; 1981, c. 412, s. 4(4); c. 747, s. 66; 1989, c. 770, s. 2; 1993, c. 539, s. 194; 1994, Ex. Sess., c. 24, s. 14(c).)

  2. You need to go up just a little further to GA 14-288.7 which puts those restrictions into place upon any declaration of a state of emergency by the Governor, a county Board of Commissioners, or a Mayor.

    § 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.

    (b) This section does not apply to persons exempted from the provisions of G.S. 14‑269 with respect to any activities lawfully engaged in while carrying out their duties.

    (c) Any person who violates any provision of this section is guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor. (1969, c. 869, s. 1; 1993, c. 539, s. 192; 1994, Ex. Sess., c. 24, s. 14(c).)

    Exempted persons are police and military but not holders of CCW’s.

    Note the date that this was first enacted – 1969. This was in reaction to the race riots of the late 60s and especially to the riots after the death of Martin Luther King Jr. It is just one more racially-motivated gun control law which needs to be discarded.

  6. I realize this reply is very late but I just came across your blog and seen this. I live in King, NC and I can tell you that many of us were outraged over this. Things have not gotten any better here in King, our PD is out of control and despite recent efforts to remove the whole department we are still dealing with their unconstitutional ways. Our PD is known for pulling over inocent people and searching their cars, they use excuses like “If you are out past 11pm then that gives us probable cause” and yes some of our residents are stupid enough to allow the search. It has become common knowledge that the PD is involved in cover ups involving our city council and one particular officer keeps a black book on the council members as a form of blackmail.
    RIght now we are waiting to see if the SBI investigation will go anywhere. Hopefully someone will come forward or new evidence will appear that will help rid our community of these crooks.
    Right after the State of Emergency thing happened a Militia was formed. Best I can tell they are community based group starting to get involved in the local politics and making the citizens aware of what is going on.
    I hope things here will change soon!

    • Thanks for the update KingNCGal.

      There are several examples of small town Police Departments gone haywire here on this site.

      Perhaps things will improve in your town soon.

      In Liberty,
