Statement on Wake County Sheriff’s Suspension of Pistol Permits
Raleigh, N.C. — Senators Warren Daniel (R-Burke) and Danny Britt (R-Robeson) issued the following joint statement regarding the Wake County Sheriff’s suspension of pistol permits:
“State law requires sheriffs to approve or reject a pistol permit within 14 days.
“Sheriff Baker must immediately rescind his illegal decision to halt sale of pistols in Wake County.
“People are already suspicious and on edge. It’s reckless to illegally suspend their Second Amendment rights just when they need assurance that they can trust government.
“We will also be urging our colleagues in the legislature to take action during the short session to address this illegal behavior.”
