Greensboro Mayor Changes Her Mind and Admits that Gun Stores are “Essential” After GOA Sent a Legal Warning

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.
