Give them something to think about.

An AP article tells us of a new law, passed by the North Carolina legislature and currently on the Governor's desk awaiting his signature, which would require courts to give battered spouses information on how to get a concealed carry license.

As I write this, there is an armed standoff in PRP between police and a man alleged to have just killed his estranged wife. We all know protective orders are all but useless, but I wonder, if it were common practice for these poor ladies to be packing heat, would their ex-whatevers be so keen on coming after them?

One of my wife's most told stories involves a nurse who worked for her several years ago. The soon-to-be ex-husband chased the nurse around a community college parking lot with a shotgun. She called some of his family shortly after that and asked them to tell him she had a pistol and had been practicing with it, and guess what? She never heard from nor saw him again.

I hope the Governor of North Carolina signs the law and many battered spouses avail themselves of their 2nd amendment rights. Hmmm. Time to write to some legislators.
