Hoo Boy! I am sure this is just a typo from our devout Muslim Neighbors.
I am glad to see these people exercise the freedom of Speech guaranteed by our Constitution.
Since I am a self-described Provincial you can imagine my surprise the messages are in English and sound suspiciously like Democrat Talking Points.
Obviously a black flag operation perpetrated by evil Republicans on an innocent and unsuspecting Muslim Community!!
At least one contributor has labeled the original author as a MODERATOR on that board!
Snag a copy while you can!!
(The Oath Can Be Found At Minute 6:45)
Poor Beverly Perdue. She cannot quite get the hang of this State of Emergency thing.
Is it possibly because she is just another product of our Public Education System and is thus unable to read, write, or comprehend all those complicated legal terms and concepts? Only her grade school teachers know for sure. If you can find any willing to claim her as student.
In any case, a number of CCH holders in counties East Of I-95 are somewhat uneasy about the Governor’s whimsical interpretation of General Statutes and worry whether their local officials will interpret their Oaths of Office as arbitrarily and capriciously as the Governor.
So even if the Governor believes herself correct, the local Sheriff, Police, District Attorney et al may believe otherwise and there is NOTHING the Governor can legally do to alter their behavior and statute interpretation.
Over at No Lawyers, Only Guns and Money Mr. Richardson has already expressed his reservations about the current state of affairs. CLICK LINK HERE
So where does the Impeachment part enter?
Recall almost exactly a year ago the Good Governor essentially suspended Dove Season as well as the 2nd Amendment for the ENTIRE State in name if not fact because of anticipated damage from Hurricane Earl. Mostly it seemed to depend upon which Authority found their neck in the noose at the time.
Massad Ayoob charitably labeled it “madness” and “idiocy” when he found himself caught up in the maelstrom. CLICK LINK HERE
In short, NC criminalized an entire class of citizens. Including me and my companion, each carrying a gun as we passed through NC, and doing so legally as far as we knew. Of course, unless the traveler was tuned to the right radio station at the right moment, they could not have known they’d just been criminalized, as we didn’t until we’d already passed through. This does not make me warm and fuzzy.
THIS YEAR the Governor attempted to learn from past experience and issued Executive Order 103. CLICK LINK HERE
Executive Order 103 included Section 7 – The Chinese Menu Clause. The Governor picked one law from Column A and one law from Column B and essentially said she would selectively enforce the laws she liked and ignore the laws she did not like. The best ObamaNation intellectualism replicated in North Carolina! CLICK LINK HERE or HERE
This order is adopted pursuant to my powers under Article 1 of Chapter 166A of the General Statutes and under Article 36A of Chapter 14 of the General Statutes. It does not trigger the limitations on weapons in G.S. § 14-288.7 or impose any limitation on the consumption, transportation, sale or purchase of alcoholic beverages.
Unfortunately, as per her Oath Of Office, that is not allowed and is thus impeachable as a high crime and misdemeanor.
Over at Pro Libertate William Norman Grigg brings his usual insightful analysis to the events of the past few days in Norway.
Roughly a decade ago, Al Pacino starred in a movie entitled S1m0ne, a cyber-era updating of the Pygmalion myth in which a film director creates an uncannily realistic digital actress. Despite the fact that “Simone” was a computer-rendered composite fantasy, the lustrous blond enchantress becomes a global pop culture sensation – a profitable illusion sustained through increasingly desperate acts of misdirection on the part of the director.
It’s tempting to think that accused Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik is a S1m0ne-style digital fantasy drawn to specifications provided by Morris Dees’ so-called Southern Poverty Law Center. Breivik used social networking sites to create a cyber-persona seemingly made to order for left-leaning “watchdog” groups. Available photographs depict the blond, stereotypically Nordic Breivik as if he were a dress-up doll, his face oddly unmarked and expressionless as he poses in a variety of guises – including Freemason garb and a scuba outfit.
In similar fashion, his recorded ideological pronouncements – the quotes attributed to him in the aftermath of the killing spree in Oslo and Utoya, and his bloated “manifesto” – could be the work of someone determined to embody every detail of the familiar caricature of the right-wing “hate criminal.”
Sin·gu·lar·i·ty: a point or region of infinite mass density at which space and time are infinitely distorted by gravitational forces and held to be the final state of matter as it falls into a black hole
Long ago and far away I had an opportunity to talk to an old man, a survivor of WWII and
a member of the Axis Conscript Army from one of those little roll over countries of Eastern Europe – you know, Poland, Romania, Hungary et.al.
I asked him what he made of his experience in the 20th Century?
He answered in one word: “Amazement”.
To clarify he said: “One day you wake up and believe you will do pretty much what you have always done the way you have always done it. On that day you learn you will never again do any of the things you have always done in any of the ways you have always done them.”
The phrase did not exist when he spoke of his experience in World War Twice, but he clearly described the reality of SOCIETAL SINGULARITY- the change, in an instant, from a world you comprehend perfectly to a world unrecognizable in every aspect.
Meet Anders Behring Breivik:
This blog has an extensive history of interest:
Update 07/24/2011: I hope everyone who wanted a copy of VERBOTEN material got one, the internet seems to be scrubbed of copies as quickly as they are posted.
It happened (yet) again! A brother of the badge gone wild to the peril of the public and his fellow patrol officer.
Across time and geography all Cops Gone Wild Videos share the common element of an individual patrol officer’s unbridled hubris from one incident to another. Threats of fictitious offenses, threats of direct, immediate violence, lectures spun from primordial emotion absent of any element of fact or logic.

LAWDOG is not amused:
Thanks to No Lawyers Only Guns And Money (CLICK LINK HERE)we learn our favorite Neville Chamberlain Professional Shooter-Doug Koenig-is alive and well at the National Shooting Sports Foundation where they continue to peddle the propaganda of Tax Payer supported ersatz gun safety with bicycle cable padlocks.
For the chiiiildren dontcha know?
It seems like only yesterday we covered this in a previous episode of JJH RKBA Commentary, remember?(CLICK LINK HERE)
In reality it has been a full three years.
So let us go through this ONE MORE TIME:
Did Firearms Guru Jeff Cooper EVER actually put an age limit on when children should handle firearms? (CLICK LINK HERE)
I seem to recall the occasional comment about the evils of weapon possession by inexperienced individuals and unreliable adults but never a blanket prohibition directed against all children regardless of their age, experience or mental maturity.
Mary Carpenter would certainly agree some children are more mature than others: (CLICK LINK HERE)
Not to mention the “When I was a kid testimonials” which reflect the experience and memories of adult writers before leviathan Nanny State regulations took control of every aspect of American life. CLICK LINK HERE
More important, has Doug Koenig ever crapped up one of his raceguns with some inane
free tax payer funded bicycle cable lock?
Inquiring minds want to know and all that!
Hat Tip to No Lawyers Only Guns And Money for the reminder to us all- RKBA is a 360 degree battlefield where people who should know better still do not blush when they regurgitate Sarah Brady Talking Points about Child Safety and Gun Control.
Another Barney Fife moment out on the target range. An important cautionary tale for everyone. (Yes, there but for the grace of Heaven go we all!)
Fortunately in this incarnation Barney Fife is alive and well, but must limp for a while.
Old proverb: Man with one gun know EXACTLY how to fire his weapon, man with two guns not quite sure……
I like this guy. He did everything well and conducted himself calmly and honorably.
We have discussed this before:
Weapons are not toys, not for relaxation or sport or entertainment, but tools to be treated with utmost respect and caution which have but one purpose: to harm some critter- with four or two legs- before they harm you.
As Sergeant Phil Esterhaus famously said: Let’s be careful out there!
Remember the complete shock and novelty of a SWAT Food raid on a small group of women and children in rural Ohio back in 2008?
Followed by S510?
Apparently things have not improved in the interim. ObamaNation has now created a National Rural Council by Executive Order.
On June 9, 2011, President Obama issued a sweeping executive order for a White House Rural Council that purports to exert broad municipal powers over the food, fiber, and energy production of Rural American. Where’s the Line, America to how much power the president can amass by executive order?
The good news? She is sorry. The bad news? She is sorry. The sorry feral offspring of Generation Damned. Also lucky. There was a time private property owners had a strict “you loot, we shoot” policy. Expect more of this in the near recent future.
