King, N.C. Gun Restrictions

In King, N.C. they have this on the books, in the event of a declared emergency:

3. NO FIREARMS: No sale or purchase of any type of firearm, ammunition, explosive, or any possession of such items is allowed off a person's own premises. [underline and bold in original -ed]
A lot of people wondered about this since the declared emergency resulting from the recent flurries of global warming triggered the ordinance. You wonder how some things wind up on the books, and think there must be some good stories behind some of them.

I think I found it

Well, duh, you can't have legally armed looters. Making it against the law just means you can't defend your neighbor, when all the dudes passing this crap were concerned with, was the cops complaining they couldn't tell the good guys with guns from bad guys with guns.

This way, the cops know: Bad guys have guns. When seconds count, the cops are minutes away.

Nice catch on picking up on this story! Thanks!
