NC: Wake County Sheriff Suspends Pistol Permit Issuance

NRA NC Gun Flag
No gun licenses will be issued in Wake County, NC until April 30th.

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- At a time when uncertainty about social order has prompted a large number of Americans to exercise their Second Amendment right to self-defense, the office of Wake County Sheriff Gerald Baker announced today that they will not issue new Pistol Purchase Permits until at least April 30th.

While Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP) holders and those with an approved Pistol Purchase Permit can still obtain handguns, this leaves new prospective gun owners especially vulnerable. For at least the next 36 days, they cannot buy a handgun or receive one in a private transfer, even from a family member or close friend, unless they go through significantly greater time and expense to obtain a CHP.

In 2012, a federal court in North Carolina struck down emergency measures aimed at limiting Second Amendment rights during a declared emergency. That court noted that “[w]hile the bans imposed pursuant to these statutes may be limited in duration, it cannot be overlooked that the statutes strip peaceable, law abiding citizens of the right to arm themselves in defense of hearth and home, striking at the very core of the Second Amendment.” Bateman v. Perdue, 881 F. Supp. 2d 709, 716 (E.D.N.C. 2012).

Please contact Sheriff Baker and ask him to uphold the Second Amendment right to self-defense by continuing to process and issue Pistol Purchase Permits. You may call his office at 919-856-6900 or email him by clicking the button below.

There is a movie on Amazon Prime called “Keep and Bear” I think everyone, both anti and pro gun people should see, It makes a great argument for the 2nd Amendment.

SHAME ON EVERY GUNOWNER WHO VOTES DEMOCRAT.

Cruiser . . .I like your posts and thank you for this one. However, there is NO NEED for an “argument” for the Second Amendment! It is every citizens right and a part of the Constitution of the United States of America. And EVERY STATE IN THE UNION, SAVE FOR PERHAPS THE STATE OF MAINE, VIOLATES IT EVERY DAY!!! IT IS WELL PAST TIME FOR EVEREY CITIZEN IN AMERICA TO START DEMANDING THAT EVERY STATE IN THE UNION STOP VIOLATING THE SECOND AMENDMENT!!!

Didn’t this guy have to swear an oath to uphold the constitution? Who gave him the authority to put the public he is supposed to protect at risk. Voters, remember these incidents come election time.

And by the lazy and apathetic among us who refuse to defend liberty by either not voting or voting for cretins like this petty tyrant.if you are not voting for those who defend the constitution you are the enemy of liberty!

File a lawsuit against the tyrant. He’s not protected if he oversteps his bounds regarding the Constitution, because doing so makes him, wait for it: a criminal with a badge!

NC is a constant violator of the Constitution, especially the 2nd amendment. NC requires a fee aid for the right to carry concealed, they also require a fee paid for a permit to purchase each handgun. They also violate our right to free travel (as do the rest of the states) by requiring individuals to pay a fee for a Driver’s license, for personal travel, which the Supreme Court ALSO established as our right! https://wearechange.org/u-s-supreme-court-says-no-license-necessary-to-drive-automobile-on-public-highwaysstreets/

No choice but to take the law into your own hands in NC. It’s your right if you choose to use it.

You may want to look up and read US vs Cruishank. It actually is the opposite of what you clam in regard to State rights. Cruishank actually stated that States could ignore the Bill of Rights. This was overturned in McDonald and Heller both of which rules that States were also bound by the Bill of Rights. States had used Cruishank for a century to support blocking the Bill of Rights prior to McDonald and Heller.

@Chief, prior to the 14th Amendment, the Bill of Rights did only apply to the Federal Government, and states could ignore the Bill of Rights. No longer.

No law abiding citizen should ever be forced to purchase a license, charged a fee for, or taxed in order to exercise any “Right” freely guaranteed by the Constitution.

What was not mentioned in this article which I read elsewhere, is that gun permit applications at this agency went from approximately 90 per day a year ago, to approximately 290 per day, now. With the exception of people who may have just turned 21, I have a hard time mustering a lot of sympathy for those who have sat around with their thumbs up their butt, never bothering to apply for a permit until now. Yes, I agree, having to ask permission to carry IS an infringement, but it is light years ahead of the bad days in the… Read more »

A lot of the folks with their thumbs up their asses until now are anti-gun commies who just realized how critical the 2A really is.

We should not need permits to exercise our free rights granted by God and supported by the Second Amendment.

ARM UP AND CARRY ON.

@Shooter, We don’t need permits! Politicians at every level are ignoring the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and their lawful duties. Government is now about making money for the politicians and parties. Unconstitutional acts of the legislatures are enforced by the private armies of the cities, states, and federal gov. There is no profit in letting us be free people.
