Durham NC's Racist Jim Crow Gun Registry Persists To This Day

Here in the Tarheel State, we have no such thing as a state wide gun registry, and as long as we stay vigilant and fight tooth and nail, we never will. But what many of you may not realize is that Durham County NC does in fact have a gun registry, and as Grassroots North Carolina reports, it's been in place  since the dark days of the Jim Crow laws, as a way to selectively enforce gun control on the African American population. Today, it has been utilized by the anti-gun elites as a tool of control over the populace.
From Grassroots NC:

"Most North Carolinians know that this state doesn't have a gun registry. What many North Carolinians don't know is that Durham County does have a gun registry; a throwback to racist Jim Crow laws that once plagued our great state.
In 1935 the State Legislature bowed to pressure from local officials and granted Durham County an exception to its rule against gun registries in the state. Durham County's gun registry was another way for the county sheriff to capriciously and discriminately criminalize certain law-abiding citizens.
This law is so recklessly worded that you could be charged with a misdemeanor offense for passing through Durham County with an unregistered firearm! Of course, back in the day this was selectively enforced; we'll leave it to you to imagine how.
This racist law persists to this day, and responsible law-abiding gun owners in Durham County are still required to go to the courthouse and surrender information about their lawfully-owned firearms—firearms that are nobody else's business, and firearms that the other ninety-nine counties in North Carolina have no need to know about.
North Carolina Senate Bill 226 was introduced by North Carolina Senator Mike Woodard in 2013 to repeal Durham's racist gun registry and bring it into the 21st century. Grassroots North Carolina would like to thank Rules Chair Rep. Tim Moore and Rep. Thom Tillis for agreeing to move this bill through the house in this summer's short session, to help ensure that Durham County's law-abiding citizens don't continue to be treated like criminals.
We're asking you to contact Representatives Moore and Tillis to thank them for agreeing to move swiftly on Senate Bill 226."   
This kind of nonsense reveals the racist, elitist history of the anti-gunner and the leftists. 
It's time such laws were stricken from the books,

(Quite frankly, I'm surprised to see Thom Tillis actually supporting the removal of the registry, considering some of the things that have come to light about him in recent weeks.-----Ed. )

NC Eatery Posts "NO GUNS" Signs, Then Gets Robbed. Customers Choke On The Irony


Durham NC, is a cesspool of Leftist Anti-Gun ideology. so this sort of thing shouldn't come as much of a surprise. Yet when something like this occurs it makes us all take notice.
The website "Guns N' Freedom" , reported that Sunday night at "The Pit Authentic Barbecue",
3 suspects entered the establishment through a back entrance and while brandishing handguns, forced the staff onto the floor while robbing the joint.
Strangely enough the criminals completely ignored the "No Guns"/ "No Concealed Handguns" sign on the door. Why would they do such a thing? Criminals, breaking the law....what's the world coming to.
Some of you might recall that "The Pit" is the same NC restaurant to hosted Gabby Giffords' anti-gun shindig last year, while on her tour of the US pushing disarmament.

Got Gun Related Vehicle Decals? Thieves May Be Targeting You

If you are like so many other gun owners out there, you are loud and proud of your 2nd Amendment rights and the fact that you exercise them. But with a recent trend here in North Carolina, you might want to consider being a bit more off the grid about advertising your weapons. 
A few weeks ago in Charlotte NC, the Metro Police's University Division  arrested a group of individuals who are suspected of breaking into vehicles specifically in search of firearms. 
They looked for vehicles with firearm related decals, which were more likely to have a weapon stored inside. 
There are reports of thieves with similar methods of operation, lurking around gun shops and ranges, knowing there will be plenty of targets for thievery .  CMPD says that criminals are also targeting vehicles parked in places where concealed carry is not allowed.
The CCP holder leaves his gun in the vehicle, usually sticking it under the seat. In a matter of a few moments, a thief identifies their vehicle, and breaks in. Goodbye to your sidearm.
I am as bad as the next guy, I enjoy the swag that a lot of gun companies send with their product.
But maybe the decals are better suited for your rifle case, tool box, or cabinet.
In these crazy days, we can't afford to lose our weapons to a thieving crack head.
We have to start thinking like the "gray man".
Blend in. You don't have to flaunt it, to know you got it.

Vance County NC Homeowner Uses AR-15 For Self Defense During Home Invasion

Score one for the good guys:
Up in Vance County, Jonathan Haith was sound asleep in his home on Thomas Lane, when he heard someone knocking on his door at 9:45 a.m. , Haith ignored it and went back to sleep.
After about 15 minutes, there was a loud thud noise as 23 year old Gregory Johnson kicked in the door and entered the residence.

suspect Gregory Johnson

Haith retrieved his semi-automatic AR-15 rifle, and crept into his hallway, where Johnson was standing with a 9mm handgun.
Johnson fired at Haith, who returned fire, striking Johnson in the stomach and shoulder.
Haith was not hit by Johnson's initial shot.
Johnson ran from the residence and later collapsed in the parking lot of a daycare down the street.
Johnson apparently had an accomplice who sped out of Haith's yard in a getaway car, clearly not wanting any of what his fellow scumbag had just been a partaker of, and retrieving Johnson and taking him to the local hospital.
Nothing was taken from the home, and no charges have been filed against Haith.
A clear cut case of self defense.
While many of us might grab a shotgun or a pistol when and if we hear someone in our home, that doesn't mean we should dismiss the AR-15  as a candidate for bump-in-the-night duty.

New Jersey Set to Ban .22 Rifles As Anti-Gun Madness Sweeps the North

Thus far, May has not been a good month for gun owners and Patriots throughout America.
Here in North Carolina, we had our Primary elections on May 6, and a number of the true Patriot minded candidates were defeated by centrists and establishment goons.
And now this piece of news regarding our Patriot  brothers and sisters caught behind enemy lines in New Jersey.
On May 5th, New Jersey's Senate Law and Public Safety Committee passed SB 993, which bans  detachable magazines holding more than 10 rounds, and .22 rifles (along with other rifles), with fixed magazines holding more than 10 rounds. The bill passed by a 3 to 2 vote, 3 Democrats to 2 Republicans.
This ban will outlaw 43 different weapons, including the Marlin 60, the Remington Nylon 66, and the Winchester 190, all very popular small game hunting rifles. What this has done is solidify the fact that gun grabbers aren't just after the so called "Assault weapons" they want to ban ALL guns. That should wake up some of the Elmer Fudd hunters who sit quietly while the rest of us are terrorized just because our taste in firearms doesn't sit well with them.
New Jersey hasn't exactly been a friendly state to the gun owners of America,
Just look up the terrible tale of Brian Aitken, and the nightmare he went through in the Garden State.
Also, keep in mind that just because they have a Republican governor, don't count on him to veto it.
Chris Christie is anti-gun and anti-liberty, the "R" beside his name notwithstanding.
Time to wake up, people. They're coming for us. That's a fact.
