That seems right to me.  He made the wrong vote.  Good to see that the party cares.  Too bad to be divided, but that was the Democrat plan for the impeachment and it succeeded.

Not really clear about charges against Gaetz
except had sex with wiling sugar daddy seeking 17 yo

which to me while caddy
I don't quite see as crime

so if she was months older it is ok?

I like Gaetz's politics but I was tired of hearing him ramble @ 200 miles per hr on the Fox shows

He did not really say much we didn't already know.............

House Committee Passes Purchase Permit Repeal

Thanks to Reps. Jay Adams, Hugh Blackwell, Keith Kidwell, and George Cleveland, today the NC House Judiciary 4 Committee passed H398, a full repeal of North Carolina’s Jim Crow-era pistol purchase permit (PPP) law – a law which not only allows some urban sheriffs to obstruct people from buying handguns for self-protection, but to this day also disproportionally denies minorities the ability to buy handguns for self-defense.

Not only are Republicans on board with repealing the racist law, but now the NC Sheriffs’ Association has joined them in supporting repeal. And who does that leave still supporting racist gun control? Democrats.

Said GRNC president Paul Valone: “We are encouraged to see that the North Carolina Sheriffs’ Association now agrees to bring gun purchases in North Carolina into the 21st Century by eliminating our Jim Crow-era permit system and requiring background checks at the point of sale. Given that a recent UNC School of Law paper found that in Wake County, black applicants are being denied permits three times more often than whites, it is clear that racism in issuing permits continues to this day. Consequently, we are calling upon Democrat legislators to join in repealing this racist law.”

Presuming the PPP repeal passes the General Assembly, anti-gun Democrat Governor Roy Cooper will certainly veto it. Because Republicans don’t have the 6/10 majority in either chamber that is required to over-ride Cooper’s veto, at least some Democrats will have to vote to over-ride.

Will Democrats do the right thing, or will they be the only ones left clinging to racist gun control? Please note that this message goes to Republicans. Very soon, we will issue another alert with a message for Democrats.

Because of your kind $2 donation to the North Carolina Sheriffs' Association (NCSA) through your county firearm permit application, NCSA provides you with up-to-date information on gun laws and firearms purchasing laws that affect you as a North Carolina citizen.

House Bill 559


On April 15, 2021, House Bill 559, Repeal Pistol Purchase Permit Requirement, was introduced at the North Carolina General Assembly. If enacted into law, House Bill 559 would allow for the purchase of a pistol in the State of North Carolina without a Pistol Purchase Permit.

If enacted into law, House Bill 559 would also eliminate the requirement of a Pistol Purchase Permit for pistols sold, given away, transferred, purchased, or received after the date the bill becomes law.

The North Carolina Sheriffs' Association is closely monitoring this important legislation as well as all bills affecting criminal justice and law enforcement in North Carolina. The goal of the NCSA is to support all legislation that protects our North Carolina communities and promotes safety. We will continue to update you on House Bill 559 along with any other legislation that affects gun laws on the State and federal levels and within the court system.

Gov Cooper to lift restrictions on June 1
« Reply #16 on: April 21, 2021, 02:00:35 PM »
Good news! Governor Cooper announced today that by June 1st he will lift many of the mandatory social distancing, capacity, and mass gathering restrictions that he initiated over a year ago, citing increased vaccination rates and COVID infection rate stabilization. The Governor said he plans to issue an executive order next week providing details. Read the press release below:

Governor Cooper Outlines Timeline for Lifting State’s COVID-19 Restrictions. As vaccinations continue and trends stabilize, NC will lift mandatory social distancing, capacity, and mass gathering restrictions by June 1.

Raleigh - Apr 21, 2021

Governor Roy Cooper and North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Mandy K. Cohen, M.D. laid out a timeline for lifting current pandemic restrictions today. With stable trends and continued vaccination success, the state expects to lift mandatory social distancing, capacity, and mass gathering restrictions by June 1. The Governor plans to issue an executive order next week outlining safety restrictions for the month of May.

“Each shot in an arm is a step closer to putting this pandemic in the rearview mirror,” said Governor Cooper. “North Carolinians have shown up for each other throughout this entire pandemic and we need to keep up that commitment by getting our vaccines.”

North Carolina continues to focus on distributing vaccines quickly and equitably. This fast and fair approach to getting shots in arms is the best way to beat this pandemic, protect one another, boost the economy and make it possible for restrictions to be lifted.

To date, the state has administered over 6.5 million vaccines. 46.9 percent of adults are at least partially vaccinated, and 35.1 percent are fully vaccinated. More than 76 percent of people 65 and older have had at least one shot.

With vaccine now widely available across the state – often with no wait for an appointment, all North Carolinians 16 and older can plan to take their shot. The state anticipates lifting the mask mandate and easing other public health recommendations, once two thirds of adult North Carolinians have received at least one vaccine dose and if trends remain stable.
“We are at an exciting moment. We now have enough vaccine for everyone,” said Secretary Cohen. “If you are 16 and older, it is your turn to join the more than 3.6 million North Carolinians who have already taken their first shot. It’s up to you to get us to the two thirds goal as quickly as possible so we can live with this virus and begin to put this pandemic behind us.”

Gov. Cooper and Sec. Cohen urged North Carolinians continue to get vaccinated and exercise good judgment even when restrictions are lifted. Businesses should continue to follow voluntary health recommendations and North Carolinians should continue to take safety measures in order to boost the economy, keep children in schools and protect each other.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released statistics indicating that North Carolina is among the states with the fewest deaths and fewest job losses per capita.

State health officials are continuing to monitor the presence of COVID-19 and its more contagious variants in North Carolina, which is why it is important to continue to follow the state’s mask mandate and continue to practice safety precautions, including the Three Ws—wear a mask, wait 6 feet apart, and wash hands often.

Yesterday, we asked you to contact Republicans. Today, we focus on Democrats. Because anti-gun Governor Roy Cooper will almost certainly veto the bill, we need Democrat votes to over-ride the veto. The good news is that if Democrats are honest about wanting to stop racism, the fact that the purchase permit law is not only racist in history, but in its current application should motivate them to repeal it.

Background
Thanks to Reps. Jay Adams, Hugh Blackwell, Keith Kidwell, and George Cleveland, on Tuesday the NC House Judiciary 4 Committee passed H398, a full repeal of North Carolina’s Jim Crow-era pistol purchase permit (PPP) law – a law which not only allows some urban sheriffs to obstruct people from buying handguns for self-protection, but to this day also disproportionally denies minorities the ability to buy handguns for self-defense.

Not only are Republicans on board with repealing the racist law, but now the NC Sheriffs’ Association has joined them in supporting repeal. And who does that leave still supporting racist gun control? Democrats.

What’s next?
Presuming the PPP repeal passes the General Assembly, anti-gun Democrat Governor Roy Cooper will certainly veto it. Because Republicans don’t have the 6/10 majority in either chamber that is required to over-ride Cooper’s veto, at least some Democrats will have to vote to over-ride.

Will Democrats do the right thing, or will they be the only ones left clinging to racist gun control?

Yes, I remember that Greensboro speech!

I will keep an eye out for him-- I'm guessing he has some sort of official governmental website-- if I can find it I will sign up for his mailing list
