2A “Protection Counties” Quietly Taking Root In NC
A growing number of counties in North Carolina are adopting pro-Second Amendment resolutions, inspired by the movement in Virginia and determined to take a preemptive stand in opposition to any new gun control proposals. Despite the fact that Republicans control both chambers of the legislature, residents and local officials say they don’t want to wait until it’s too late.
From the Greensboro News & Record:
Written by County Commissioner Zak Crotts, the resolution is expected to be introduced and put to a vote at Tuesday’s meeting of the Davidson County Board of Commissioners, scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at the governmental center, 913 Greensboro St.
Crotts told the Winston-Salem Journal he is taking action because of what is happening in Virginia and the possibility of the federal government passing gun-control legislation…
“I want to make sure we don’t turn like Virginia did,” Crotts said. “I want to make sure that’s very loud and clear.”
Elected in 2016, Crotts, 37, is the youngest person to ever serve on the Davidson County Board of Commissioners. He is also the treasurer for the N.C. Republican Party.
A lifelong Republican and a veteran of the National Guard, Crotts is a fervent Second Amendment supporter. Weapons are protection to him, he said.
“One of the reasons why I’m so adamant about our protections is, years ago, my children and I were at a restaurant while it got robbed,” he said. “I realized what was going on at the cash register and I had to get my daughter on my side of the table and kind of turn sideways nonchalantly to protect my children.”
A couple of weeks later, he said, he was in a class getting his concealed-carry permit.
The Greensboro paper notes that if Davidson County approves its “Second Amendment Protection Resolution,” it will join six other counties in the state that have already adopted similar resolutions in recent weeks.
