Allowing Conceal Carry in Most Beaufort County Government's Buildings is in Process

After nearly two years of resolutions representing a desired result to make Beaufort County citizens more safe in their government's buildings, this process is finally moving toward full fruition.

    Follow the links to gain a restorative history of this arduous process.


    At last month's January 2021 general meeting, the Beaufort County Commissioners passed a resolution in support of Beaufort County's employees being allowed to Conceal Carry in most Beaufort County government's buildings. This resolution passed, unedited, 4 to 2, and was sent to the county manager to administer the specifics of its application.

    As our the February general meeting rolled around, where the People's business is decided, planned and administered, nothing was more important than to ascertain the direction of that Conceal Carry directive for Beaufort County employees. The aforementioned directive for allowing Beaufort County employees the ability to protect themselves and others, in our government buildings, against any evil arising from the possibility of the deranged shooter(s) is evolving into a probability to allow all citizens, who are duly licensed to lawfully engage their 2nd Amendment Right to protect themselves, and others if the necessity, should arise to do so by Conceal Carry.

    Accordingly, Beaufort County Manager Brian Alligood, with the advice of counsel, did investigate the proper path toward engaging this new reality for Beaufort County Employee's best option for a far more safe work environment, and discovered that North Carolina general statutes did not preclude Beaufort County's government from bestowing the natural right of self-defense to their employees to the exclusion of other qualified citizens, those who possess those identical unalienable rights to protect themselves.

    In short, therefore, the Beaufort County Commissioners had two options in this matter of proper government building safety: 1) Keep the "Gun Free Zone" signs up, and continue to make Beaufort County employees, and those using these premises a soft target to those of evil intent; 2) Take the "Gun Free Zone" signs down, and allow all lawful citizens to Conceal Carry and harden the prospects of these natural government building targets exponentially. The February, 2021 consensus of the Beaufort County Commissioners is to move purposefully toward the latter, and reverse their previous judgement in the beginning of this process to allow all citizens, protected by the United States Constitution, to finally fulfill their God given right to self-defense against the prospective of utter evil.

Is it wise to allow Beaufort County Employees to Conceal Carry handguns in most of Beaufort County's government buildings?
  No, no one should be allowed to carry firearms on public property.
  Yes, Beaufort County Employees need not be like "lambs led to the slaughter" should there be a deranged shooter on the public premises, where they work and the public uses.
  I am not familiar with the safety question.
