WRAL-TV sent reporter Beau Minnick to get “man in the street” perspectives on HB 111 which passed the North Carolina House this past week.
One man said he didn’t object to firearms in parks so “long as it was concealed and it wasn’t loaded”. I think someone doesn’t quite get the concept behind concealed carry and personal protection.
Based on the other comments – especially the ones from patrons in a sports bar – I think the detail about carrying concealed and not consuming alcohol was conveniently left out of the conversation. Nothing in HB 111 allows a person to carry concealed and consume alcohol. That is still illegal under North Carolina law as it should be.
I must wonder how much footage was left on the editing room floor from this exercise in broadcast journalism.
