In NC Lots of Snow Equals No Constitution

What the heck?? I can see calling a state of emergency to get public assistance rolling, get the salt trucks out, start shoveling, etc, but do we really need to suspend the Constitution as well? Why the need to ban alcohol and firearms? Are they saying that because of three feet of snow their citizenry will rise up in rebellion, or for some reason go on drunken shooting rampages? Really? That may be a bit much.

KING, N.C. — Authorities lifted a curfew and alcohol restrictions in King on Sunday, but said a state of emergency declaration remained in effect until Monday.

Authorities said the state of emergency declaration would continue until Monday 9 a.m., barring any unforeseen circumstances or severe changes.

Effective Sunday afternoon, alcohol restrictions and a curfew were lifted. All other remaining restrictions would continue until Monday, said Paula May, King police chief.

Other restrictions include a ban on the sale or purchase of any type of firearm, ammunition, explosive or any possession of such items off a person’s own premises.
