Resolution to Allow Beaufort County Employees to Conceal Carry put on Hold ... for Now

    We told you about the Conservative initiative to allow Concealed Carry for county employees in most county owned public buildings that would be presented at the January, 2020 general meeting. Curiously, even with a five to two "Republican" majority, the resolution appeared to be one that would not win favor with the majority of Beaufort County Commissioners, and was in imminent jeopardy. With over nineteen years of county commissioner experience, and all of it in Beaufort County where Republicans have a robust history of voting like confirmed Democrats, one can immediately sense these probable outcomes, and then act accordingly.

    So ... I pulled the resolution from consideration, with Commissioner Hood Richardson's concurrence, in favor of re-presenting it at the next meeting, with greater specificity, and add possibly refined semantics within its language.

    And why would I not; the writing was well written on the wall when the board's majority lead bureaucrat - the board's attprney - started offering his political opinions cloaked in his idea of what is sound prudence of board policy. I saw through this behavior immediately, and if my attitude toward this county employee appeared strident in measure and tone, I was making the sound point of my constituents, as their elected voice - that it is a far sounder policy for Beaufort County's citizens. Fortunately, in this case, our Beaufort County employees would be protectors for themselves and othersto keep all safe within of our public buildings.

    Accordingly, we, American citizens, are accorded the constitutional freedoms to do so, but only if not limited by the moderated deterrence of local politicians and their bureaucrats. No one is afforded any safety if those who would commit evil acts can illegally conceal weapons of death, while those who are licensed to legally carry weapons of protection are disallowed by another lesser law to carry weapons of defense of protection.

    Politicians, such as myself, know that they may occasionally err in their judgement; however, well understanding that if I do err in my resolve to do what is best by my constituents, I will always endeavor to err on the side of the United States Constitution. Wouldn't you expect that of any governing politician?

    The contrary opinion to my objective here as a duly elected Conservative in this county, of this Constitutional Republic, Commissioner Jerry Langley mentioned that 'a number of county employees are too disturbed to Conceal Carry on county property'.

    Additionally, Frankie Waters argued, in reference to county employees' 2nd Amendment rights to protect themselves at all times, 'we did not get the right to carry firearms at the banks where we worked; we just gave then the money and not one was harmed'.

    Commissioner Waters was reminded that 'evil, deranged shooters do not storm public building to take money, but, specifically, to take lives in a very public way.'

Below, in this video segment, you can witness this issue on the legitimacy of Conceal Carry, with, once again, this board appearing to be disarray regarding the administration of the People's business.
