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.
