Why We Fight To Get Rid Of Pistol Purchase Permits


It looks like things are starting to settle down in Charlotte after the recent violence. You may have noticed some of the stories that referenced local citizens rushing out to buy firearms. Of course my readeers know that you should have the means to armed self-defence before the SHTF.

According to a spokesperson for Hyatt Gun Shop most of the purchases were for 12-gauge shotguns and buckshot. What was never mentioned in these stories is the purchase of a handgun in North Carolina requires either a pistol purchase permit or a NC Concealed Handgun Permit. Absent one of those two documents, you were legally restricted to purchasing a long gun. This is true even if it was a private sale.

While the Alan Gura's win in Bateman overturned the previous restrictions on possession of a firearm outside the home during a state of emergency as well as the restriction on firearm sales, we are still stuck with the Jim Crow-era pistol purchase permit.

Grass Roots North Carolina has been fighting the battle to get the permit system repealed for a number of years. They sent out the following alert yesterday afternoon requesting people contact both Gov. Pat McCrory (R-NC) and his Democratic opponent Attorney Gen. Roy Cooper (D-NC) urging them to support repeal of this system.

DELAYS IMPERIL CITIZENS

As Charlotte burned, the Jim Crow-era bureaucracy denied gun purchases to the terrorized . . .

Aficionados of Natural rights know that free citizens should not be forced to obtain permission slips from the bureaucracy before exercising their protected rights. In fact, it has always been GRNC’s position that archaic and shameful laws designed to deny citizens their rights, like the Jim Crow-era Pistol Purchase Permit (PPP), must be eradicated. With all of GRNC’s moral arguments and its unceasing effort to eliminate the PPP system, never before has the need to discard this old-fashioned and embarrassing legality been so obvious—and so critical.

A Right Delayed is a Life put in Peril
As you may be aware, several counties around the state, including Mecklenburg County, have been using bureaucratic loopholes and high-demand for guns as an excuse to severely delay the issuance of PPPs and Concealed Handgun Permits (CHP).  Indeed, it is true that, “a right delayed is a right denied.” However, in the context of a city ravaged by violent rioters, it should also be said that, a right delayed is a life put in peril. As a small but deviant portion of Charlotte’s populace, reinforced by out-of-state agitators, attempted to raze Charlotte, law-abiding and rightfully terrified citizens lined up to purchase much-needed handguns to protect their families, only to be told, “no.”

These citizens were told that they would be barred from purchasing defensive handguns until the weeks-long, and now often delayed, PPP and/or CHP process could be completed. The Sheriff and other law enforcement officials are paid to protect and serve the citizens, and thank goodness for the officers on the street. However, it is ironic that the law enforcement bureaucracy has been weighted to keep these same citizens from protecting themselves, particularly when the need is so immediate, and the situation so dire.

In the context of riots, where citizens are at more risk than ever and law-enforcement is overwhelmed, laws delaying the citizen’s access to defensive weapons serve only to empower the thugs, thugs who seek to hurt these citizens and their livelihoods. This must end!

Below, see how you can easily contact NC’s two contenders for governor. Remind them that you have not forgotten about this critical issue. Let them know that, even outside of the legislative season, this is an issue that is worthy of great attention, and gun owners will continue to monitor their actions on this; and actions after November will speak louder than words spoken before November. Remind them that, ultimately, the requirement for PPPs and CHPs (government “permission slips”) must be eliminated as a step toward genuine rights-recognition for law-abiding citizens in North Carolina.

IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED!


  • PHONE GOVERNOR McCRORY AND ATTORNEY GENERAL COOPER: Use the phone numbers provided below, and tell them:

    I am calling to inform [The Governor / Mr. Cooper] that, at the same time deadly riots raged in Charlotte, frightened citizens were denied their right to obtain defensive handguns. This happened due to our state’s outdated Jim Crow-era Pistol Purchase Permit system and the weeks-long process to obtain a concealed handgun permit (CHP). This denial of civil rights has the potential to cost innocent lives, and it is entirely unacceptable. We must end these archaic and dangerous PPP and CHP systems, which only serve to put citizen’s lives in peril. I insist that this be addressed in the upcoming legislative session, and that [The Governor / Mr. Cooper] prioritize the repeal of these shameful and dangerous systems.

DELIVER THIS MESSAGE


Suggested Subject: "Riots: PPP/CHP Permit Delays Imperil Innocents"  


Dear [Governor McCrory]   /   [Attorney General Cooper]:

I am writing to inform you that as deadly riots raged in Charlotte, frightened citizens were denied their right to obtain defensive handguns. This denial of rights, which clearly put untold numbers of law-abiding citizens in peril, was due to our state’s outdated Jim Crow-era Pistol Purchase Permit (PPP) system, and the weeks-long process required to obtain a concealed handgun permit (CHP).

In this context of civil unrest, it seems fitting to remind our state’s gubernatorial candidates that voters have not forgotten about this critical issue. Even outside of the legislative season, this is an issue that is worthy of great attention. The peaceful and law-abiding, who clearly have reason to fear for their safety, will continue to monitor your actions on this issue. You must work to put an end to these archaic and dangerous PPP and CHP systems, as it is your duty to protect the rights of North Carolina citizens, and not least among these is their right to protect themselves.

As we saw last week, these PPP and CHP systems only serve to empower the unlawful and put innocent lives in peril. I insist that the repeal of these embarrassing throw-backs be a priority of yours in the upcoming legislative session. And please be aware: actions after November will speak much louder than words spoken before November.

I will be watching your actions on this topic through alerts from Grass Roots North Carolina.

Respectfully,

    2. Thanks to great Dr Keke Odin . I Judy Williams is so happy to let the whole word know how this powerful spell caster saved my marriage. Everything was going down the drain as my husband can not stop cheating on me with other women. It became used to always heating on me. I tried to make him stop, but I couldn't help the situation, the more I tried, the harder it becomes. At times we will fight and go apart for some months and we will come back again just because of our kids and his financial assistance and treatment to my sick mother. One day a friend told me about this spell caster who helped her too, his name is Dr Keke Odin, she said he uses power to solve spiritual problems and she send me his contact email which is greatkekespelltemple@gmail.com. I decided to give it a try, I contacted him and he told me it will take just 2 days and I will see great changes in my husband. He actually cast a spell, believe me after 2 days of casting the spell, my husband was confessing everything he did and how he realized his mistakes. He begged for forgiveness and never to try it again. From that day till now, my mind is at rest. My husband dislike every other women on earth except me. Am so happy to have my husband back for myself alone.

  2. hot damn! I've been looking for a decent spell caster for years, who knew Uncle has been holding out on us all along. First I need a decent curse on that bitch that sold me the Money Tree Seeds I planted in the back yard, not impressed when a bunch of poppies came up. Also not sure if using magic to find a man that is attractive, smart, younger than my dad, and not a complete pussy would disrupt the whole space time continuum.

  4. You just KNOW someone in the anti-gun crowd will trot out the numbers of shotguns sold in NC recently and claim that people interested in defense buy shotguns, not handguns, so what do we need handguns for? -- and they'll conveniently forget to mention that absent a pre-approved PPP or NC CHP, you legally cannot purchase a handgun.

    It's like pointing out that in California, there should be no problem banning AR-15s because nobody buys "assault weapons" anyway -- forgetting that CA has had a legal ban on "assault weapon" sales for a very LONG time. Of course nobody buys them legally!

    Then again, mixing up cause and effect is a common phenomenon among the anti-gun crowd.
