Louisiana becomes 28th state to pass Constitutional Carry on firearms | Eastern North Carolina Now

Louisiana Governor Jeff Landry has s;igned Senate Bill 1, authorizing permitless carry of firearms by law abiding citizens in the state, usually known as "Constitutional Carry".  It becomes the 28th state to adopt Constitutional Carry after South Carolina recently became number 27.


Last session, liberal GOP Senate boss Phil Berger killed a bill to adopt Constitutional Carry in North Carolina.  The chief sponsor of the Constitutional Carry bill was Rep. Keith Kidwell (R-Beaufort), and it was the top legsiative priority of NC's most prominent gun rights organization, Grassroots North Carolina.

True and Berger is no friend of Beaufort County.

WE don't have a state senator any more. All we have is a Phil Berger rent boy.

What do people think all that money bought. The Raleigh power brokers blocked a proven area representative and bought a Raleigh Berger boy. The Swamp wins again.

Just days before the filing period began Perry was sending out mailers. On the first day of filing Speciale filed for the primary. Immediately Perry announced he would not run. On the last day of filing Brinson filed for the primary. From start to finish Brinson and the Burger related PACs funding him barraged us with thousands of dollars of flyers, radio and TV ads. See what happened.

Congratulations uninformed voters! You've been duped by the swamp and the rest of us go down with you dummies again.

You hit the nail on the head, Buzz. We need legislators who are OUR representatives to Raleigh, like the way Keith Kidwell serves, NOT Raleigh's representatives to us, which is the mentality of Brinson. And by "Raleigh" both Brinson talking to you, and my comment here means the smoke filled room power brokers in Raleigh. Those power brokers don't like representatives of the people like Kidwell and Speciale standing up for the folks back home. They would rather have go along / get along pushovers like Brinson. When I spent five years working the legislature as a political appointee in the Martin administration, I saw Brinson's type in that body but they were not as numerous then as they are today. And Berger is indeed Basnight 2.0 with a little Liston Ramsey thrown in.

What is really sad is what they have done to Mark Robinson, who IMHO was sincere when he went to Raleigh, but has been so cowed by the Bergerites, he now seems afraid of his own shadow in addressing major issues, including cowering in the corner and keeping his mouth shut when Berger announced he was killing Conatitutional Carry. Mark made his reputation on gun rights, so why is he even afraid to stand up to Berger on that? Sad.

Brinson introduced himself to me while I was working at the polls. He told me Raleigh was glad to see Speciale go. Carry was one problem. Casinos will be the next. Brinson has no experience in the position that he is seeking and maybe he is also too dumb to know what is happening to him. He is now a bought and paid for Burgernite to be led around by the nose. It is too bad that the uninformed voters put him in. It goes to show you how little our local people keep up with what is happening. Add another Rino to the brood.

Good for Louisiana and South Carolina. BUt for us here in NC, that turd Phil Berger strikes again! And the jackass has just bought our state senate seat, on top of that. Beaufort County voters were smart enough to avoid his little sock puppet Brinson, but not so elsewhere in the district apparently. Well, now, for the next two years, we are stuck with a yes-man for a slimeball.
