Jordan Stein, the Director of Communications for Gun Owners of America (GOA), sent out a news release about Greensboro, North Carolina mayor Nancy Vaughan reversing course on gun store closures.

Previously, Vaughan told the media that gun stores were not “essential” businesses.

After, GOA and Grass Roots North Carolina (GRNC) contacted her, she changed her stance.

GOA and GRNC originally sent a Cease and Desist letter to make her revise her interpretation of what constitutes an essential business, or face legal action. Mayor Vaughan relayed to GOA and GRNC in an email that she was wrong in her original interpretation.

Stein noted that “While GOA and GRNC are thankful for the clarification, both organizations still look forward to seeing a public announcement by Mayor Vaughan to let the citizens of the Gate City know they can lawfully visit and purchase firearms and ammunition from gun stores during the ‘stay-at-home’ order.”

Additionally, Wake County, North Carolina has also let gun stores re-open their doors after a GOA and GRNC sent the county a similar letter

GOA and GRNC sent letters directed towards Guildford County and the city of Durham urging local officials to keep gun stores open or face legal action.

Times of crisis are when the petty tyrants come out of the woodwork.

Leftist-run urban centers across America are taking advantage of this crisis to infringe on the right to bear arms.

Many organizations like Gun Owners of America and a select few elected officials have answered the call by standing up to these attempts to infringe on gun rights.

More cities will likely be reversing course on this matter soon.

White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward

Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.

Published

on

On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.

Dean Weingarten of Ammoland.com reported that the bill passed by a 66 to 31 margin.

Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:

The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.

Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well.  If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.

Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.

Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.

It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
