@Phil Flack :
Many thanks for your response. Glad to have my citizenship application accepted here and to add 2 residents (my wife included) as 2A advocates fighting to keep NC a free state and drive the SJW’s far away as possible.
2nd - my statement may have been off as a new resident who recently was granted back many of my God given rights (coming from NJ where no open or concealed carry is allowed to “common citizens” among many many other issues) - I was on another board where he mentioned he was in a county where he did not have a 2A friendly sheriff, if I recall he was someone who helped our asinine governor Cooper get elected. I think sheriff of county where Wilmington or Charlotte is?
Basically he told me that our sheriff is very friendly and if I wanted a suppressor he would have no problem signing off. Obviously he is off on his assessment as you mentioned and is good news for me for sure - but I got the gist of what he was saying as I gathered some friendlier counties in our state process CCW permits faster, pistol purchase permits (a friend told me he came back to the Sheriffs office after a week to pick his up and he lives in Charlotte but when I went to Raleigh they were ready in 5 mins) - etc
Not meaning to derail but thanks for your post and I’m excited to be able to get a suppressor mainly for my Home defense pistol - God forbid I need to discharge in my home with my 2 dogs around I do not want to injure them if I can help it and it’s worth a lot to me to have that be an option.
Let’s hope we can get National Hearing Protection Act passes someday and we can all buy with a NICS check, somewhat “normal”, not that I think a suppressor purchase even warrants anything besides a drivers license.
