"Made in NC" gun bill would make it a crime for federal agents to enforce the law

More news from the sovereign country of North Carolina.

A gun bill filed Tuesday resurrects an attempt by former Rep. Glen Bradley that went nowhere last session. It would exempt from all federal regulations any firearm, accessory or ammunition made and kept in North Carolina.

A gun like that would have to be stamped with “Made in North Carolina.”

There’s a new twist in this year’s version, however: It says that any federal agent who tries to enforce federal firearm laws would be guilty of a misdemeanor.

Sponsors are Republican Reps. Bert Jones of Reidsville, Bryan Holloway of King, Rayne Brown of Lexington, and Chris Millis of Hampstead.

Baring a problem in Asheville

Now here’s a problem you might not have realized need exposing, but apparently it does out there in wild and wooly Asheville – and maybe in Lexington, too.

A bill filed Thursday would make it illegal for women to bare their nipples in public.

It’s not about breastfeeding – which the bill would allow in public – but about clarifying that indecent exposure includes fully exposed breasts. Here’s what the authors write:

“For the purposes of this section, the term 'private parts' means external organs of sex and of excretion, including the nipple, or any portion of the areola, of the human female breast.”
