Interesting. Never heard of that.
from a law signed in 2011 "And finally, the Unorganized Militia.
“§ 127A‑7. Composition of unorganized militia.
The unorganized militia shall consist of all other able‑bodied citizens of the State and of the United States and such all other able‑bodied persons who have or shall declare their intention to become citizens of the United States, who shall be at least 17 years of age, except those who have been convicted of a felony or discharged from any component of the military under other than honorable conditions.
You can see from the quoted paragraph that some changes were made to the law governing the Unorganized Militia. This should tell you that if something else was intended, they could have very easily changed it. Unfortunately for those anti-gun types who dispute that the Militia exists, and that it includes much more than the National Guard, this law confirms that each and every able bodied adult citizens of North Carolina, minus a few exceptions, are members of the Militia. Note carefully that it does not restrict militia membership to men. That means that women are also members of the NC Militia. Yay equality!"

so I guess we get our guns no matter how you look at the 2nd admendment. Randy
Interesting. Never heard of that.

Wow, that is interesting! If more North Carolina gun owners were aware of this it could be a
good starting point for organization and taking action against those who wish to usurp our
Second Amendment rights. Since we are all part of a militia I guess we need our firearms
after all and we have the right to defend our state against those who wish to take away
our liberties. Does this give us the right to defend North Carolina against foreign invasions?
(transplants who are liberal and want to change our state laws)
Very Interesting. I will use this as part of our NRA and CCW Classes. What I find really perplexing is this
("§ 127A-91. Promotion of marksmanship.
The Adjutant General is authorized to detail a commissioned officer of the North Carolina National Guard or member of the State defense militia to promote rifle marksmanship among the State defense militia and the unorganized militia of the State. Such The officer or member so detailed shall serve without pay and it shall be his dutythe duty of the officer or member to organize and supervise rifle clubs in schools, colleges, universities, clubs and other groups, under such rules and regulations as prescribed by the Adjutant General shall prescribe and in such a manner to that will make them, when duly organized, acceptable for membership in the National Rifle Association. Provided, that such these duties and efforts shall in nowise interfere or conflict with clubs of schools or units operating in R.O.T.C.Reserve Officers' Training Corps or similar schools under the supervision of armed forces instructors.instructors of the Armed Forces of the United States.)
I know there are rifle clubs at some of our schools but our laws about guns on campus make them extremely hard to organize and function.
NC DCJTSD Certified Concealed Carry Handgun Instructor
NRA Certified Pistol Instructor
NRA Certified Range Safety Officer
This statute is sadly ignored by State officials, it would be a great way to introduce young
shooters to firearm safety and show them just how fun shooting can be. It would insure that
our State's population doesn't grow up with the fear and loathing of firearms that has become
almost an epidemic in other states. Rifle clubs would also give shooters a chance to interact
with their neighbors and to keep their shooting skills sharp.
