Read the last 2 or 3 posts of "No Lawyers only Guns and Money" for the long answer, this topic was addressed. I would give you the link but im on my cell phone. Anti-google it.
Short answer: im pretty sure you cannot transport alcohol or other flammable liquids or any deadly weapon under a NC state of emergency based on the 2 sections of legal code the governor used to declare said condition.
Yep, NC statues state that if the governor OR a municipality declares a SOE "sale, possession and transport of dangerous weapons 'off one's own property'" is illegal. If you live in NC, I'd urge you to contact your state reps and get that changed very soon.
It doesn't matter what Gov. Perdue put in Section 7 saying it doesn't affect guns, etc. By declaring a state of emergency under Chapter 14 of the NC General Statutes, the law states that off-premises possession of a firearm in the emergency area is forbidden. It does not say "at the Governor's discretion". She can go further and ban the sale of firearms and ammunition along with alcohol but the minimum is forbidding carry when a SOE is declared. She cannot arbitrarily decide which part of the law she wants to follow or not.
She could have just declared a state of emergency under Chapter 166A of the NCGS which she did in the last three emergencies. It does not trigger the gun ban. This time she said under her power from BOTH Chapter 166A and Chapter 14.
I thought she had learned her lesson from Hurricane Earl when she got a lot of grief about it. The next 3 SOE's were carefully crafted to avoid the gun ban. And then along comes Irene. Jeez.
You're not shy, you get around
You wanna fly, don't want your feet on the ground
You stay up, you won't come down
You wanna live, you wanna move to the sound
Got fire, in your veins, burnin' hot, but you don't feel the pain
Your desire, is insane, you can't stop, until you do it again
But sometimes I wonder as I look in your eyes
That maybe you're thinking of some other guy
But I know, yes I know, how to treat you right
That's why you call me in the middle of the night
You say it's urgent, so urgent, so-oh-oh urgent...
Just you wait and see, how urgent, my love can be, it's urgent...
You play tricks, on my mind, you're everywhere
But you're so hard to find, you're not warm, or sentimental
You're so extreme, you can be so temperamental
But I'm not looking for a love that will last
I know what I need and I need it fast
Yeah, there's one thing in common that we both share
That's a need for for each other anytime, anywhere
It gets so urgent, so urgent, you know it's, urgent
I wanna tell you it's the same for me, ooh-oooh, so-oh-oh urgent...
Just you wait and see, how urgent, our love can be, it's urgent...
You say it's urgent, make it fast, make it urgent
Do it quick, do it urgent, gotta rush, make it urgent...Want it quick
Urgent, urgent, emergency...Urgent, urgent, emergency...
Urgent, urgent, urgent, urgent, emergency
Urgent, urgent, urgent, urgent, emergency, so urgent, emergency
Emer-(ooh-oooh) emer-(ooh-oooh) emer-(ooh-oooh) It's urgent
