As the Beaufort County Commissioners defy the prudent concerns of some, and meet as per our body politic charter
pursuant to the North Carolina general statute regarding Open Meetings, I, as a commissioner, will have a very busy night with three very important agenda items. These items are as follows: 1) Resolution Regarding Refugee Settlement in North Carolina; Resolution Allowing Concealed Carry for Beaufort County Employees in Most of Beaufort County Government's Buildings; 3) Request to respond to the Governor and the General Assembly for their Coronavirus Response.
All issues are important, some more essential than the others; one has been discussed before but not voted upon
; however, all are topical to the issues that that are brought to bear upon what occurring now in our communities, our state, our Republic. I shall explain here below.
The first resolution offered to the Beaufort County Commissioners concerning the actions of unilateral actions of North Carolina's governor asking for refugees from Third World countries. This governor's request for refugees, many without proper documentation, coupled with his Open Border position of acquiescence regarding knowledge of who is within the borders of our nation, our state of North Carolina makes this governor the untested, and incapable authority on keeping our people safe. That pertinent resolution is below:
Resolution Regarding Refugee Settlement in North Carolina
the Trump administration, unlike its predecessor, is listening to state and local governments on whether they want to accept settlement of refugees, and
NC Governor Roy Cooper has written to federal officials saying that North Carolina will accept settlement of refugees, and
most refugees these days come from Third World countries, many of them Muslim countries with active jihad terrorist movements, and
Jihadi terrorist groups like ISIS have openly boasted of inserting their terrorists into the refugee stream, and
refugees granted asylum in the United States are granted immediate rights to receive all forms of welfare, a right they retain for life, and are thus subsidized by American taxpayers, with part of that paid subsidy by the state and locality where they are settled,
Be it therefore resolved
that Beaufort County refuses to accept settlement of refugees in our county, and that this decision be communicated to the state and federal governments.
The second resolution that I will offer at the April 6, 2020 meeting is that Beaufort County Employees should be allowed their Constitutional right to Conceal Carry
on Beaufort County Property should they qualify to do so. In these times of community stress due to the Coronavirus pandemic and pandemonium, it is imperative that our qualified county employees feel safe, but effectively are safe in the event that a deranged shooter attacks a county facility that is not otherwise enveloped in a conventional security setting.
In these times of high anxiety, which will probably continue as this self absorbed society reflects upon their collective predicament, it is not the time to deny qualified public employees to their Constitutional right to protection, as dicussed openly in the resolution below:
Resolution Allowing Concealed Carry for Beaufort County Employees in Most of Beaufort County Government's Buildings
the Beaufort County Commissioners support the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution, and the inherent right of lawful owners of firearms to lawfully carry in Beaufort County, concealed or otherwise, and;
at any moment one or more of Beaufort County's employees lives could be placed in great jeopardy by the wrongful, purposeful evil intent of the deranged individual to kill their fellowman, and;
the Second Amendment provides for the lawful protection of our Republic's citizens by ensuring that they may keep and bear arms, when they, at their sole well considered discretion, know that they, or other innocents, are, or will be violently threatened by those of evil intent, and;
through the accurate prism of perfect hindsight, we have collected data that definitively states that the greatest protection that a lawful gun owner, and those good citizens closest to them, will ever enjoy is the weapon that they carry for the constitutionally protected purpose of their self defense and the defense of others, therefore;
The Beaufort County Commissioners support and defend the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution, and are hereby greatly resolved to allow Concealed Carry privileges for all qualified and approved Beaufort County Government Employees in Most of Beaufort County Government's Buildings.
My third issue tonight ties all this together as I ask the Beaufort County Commissioners to begin the evaluation of North Carolina's response to the Coronavirus conundrum of pandemonium versus prudent policy, and how to better gauge a more appropriate going forward. While the Beaufort County Commissioners are a sanctioned body politic of the government of North Carolina, and govern at their pleasure, county commissions are the governing authority closest to the people of this state, and do possess the right play a big part in our government's future reaction to the next pandemic, which is a certainty going forward.
Whether one believes that North Carolina governor properly followed the general statute to issue his successive Emergency Orders to effectively shut down North Carolina's economy for a period approaching four weeks is an issue that should be discussed, but, effectively, has little bearing on what has been put into place now to combat the pandemic now. What is certain for the logical minded person is that the United States and North Carolina will no longer be able to shut down our respective economies to this extent, nor will we be able to afford to pay for part of its corrosive effects, which is occurring now.
The discussion among elected leaders begins now if we are to correct our collective situation to one of a more tolerable nature when the next pandemic slams our nature and our people.
