Citizens of North Carolina, please impeach Governor Bev Perdue. If she is not impeached, please make sure she is not re-elected in the next election.
During the evacuation of Hurricane Earl, Governor Bev Perdue issued the following emergency declaration:
“Upon Governor Beverly Perdue’s declaration of a State Of Emergency on September 1, 2010 Dove Hunters, Concealed Carry Handgun Licensees, Target Shooters and all other gunowners cannot possess, transport or use firearms off their personal property as per N.C. Gen. Stat. § 14-288.7”
If the government does not allow its citizens to defend themselves in an emergency, that government should be replaced or removed.
The founding fathers on gun ownership rights:
Thomas Jefferson – “The Constitution of most of our states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed.”
James Madison – “The Constitution preserves the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation”
Thomas Jefferson – “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms…disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes”
John Adams – “”Arms in the hands of citizens may be used at individual discretion in private self defense”
Thomas Paine – “arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property”
It is the duty of the citizens of North Carolina to recognize tyranny when they see it, and remove it from office during the next election. If Governor Bev Perdue is not removed from office, it sets a poor example for the rest of the nation.
If anyone from the Governores office has a comment on this article, they may be posted in this forum thread about Gov.Bev Purdue revokes the 2nd amendment in NC.
Do you know what the founding fathers had to say about freedom and the rights of the people? If not, it might be time to read up on the issue.
