From the article:
Under North Carolina law, (Police Chief) May said, when a state of emergency is put into place that includes a ban on driving, the sale of alcohol and carrying of firearms in vehicles is also banned.
Another quote from the Police Chief:
“By law, statue 14-288.7 automatically went into effect. And that law which goes into effect when there’s a state of emergency prohibits the transportation, purchase sale and possession of firearms other than on one's own premises.”Seems to me that the chief wouldn't have looked so bad if she had declared the law unconstitutional and ordered her officers to not enforce it.
My advice: Find out what kind of crazy laws are in effect in your area and be prepared to deal with them.
