The Carteret, N.C., County Board of Commissioners passed a Second Amendment Preservation resolution last week.
The motion was passed without discussion as part of the commission’s consent agenda during its regular meeting on March 18.
In light of recent events, popular discussion and national debate, the Carteret County Board of Commissioners seeks to publicly restate their commitment to both the North Carolina and United States Constitutions, and particularly the right of the people to keep and bear arms.
The resolution lacked the punch of one passed by the Beaufort County, N.C. Board of Commissioners in January. That measure called on the legislature to nullify the implementation of any federal law, executive order or regulation restricting the right to bear arms.
But even without the strong language, the Carteret County resolution adds to the growing chorus of voices in North Carolina and across the United States calling on state and local interposition to protect the right to keep and bear arms. This type of bottom up pressure sends a strong message and will lead to further action down the road.
