It is not in the nature of politics that the best men should be elected. The best men do not want to govern their fellowmen.
Chairman Mims responded thusly:
As with all citizens of this county you are welcome to your own opinions. The State Statue 14-409.40 that you said had bearing on this ordinance stated in item ( f ) Nothing contained in this section prohibits municipalities or counties from application of their authority under G.S. 153A-129, 160A-198, etc.. 153A-129 Firearms states: a county may by ordinance regulate, restrict, or prohibit the discharge of firearms at any time or place except when used to take birds or animals pursuant to Chapter 113, Subchapter III, when used in defense of person or property, or when used pursuant to lawful directions of law-enforcement officers. A county may also regulate the display of firearms on the public roads, sidewalks, alleys, or other public property. This section does not limit a county's authority to take action under Chapter14, Article 36A.
This is why I said to read the whole thing.
Have a nice day.
Is it just me or does he seem a lot more interested in whether he CAN do this thing than whether he SHOULD?
