The fine people of the Tar Heel State certainly aren’t worried about the mainstream media and their liberal lunacy – especially as it pertains to exerting their state’s rights.
North Carolina has been in the seat of controversy for some time after erring on the side of religious freedom in 2016 with a series of legislative moves designed to bolster American’s faith-based rights. Of course, this hasn’t come without controversy, as the liberal agenda in America has long declared religion a scourge on progressive societies.
The left soon pushed a number of boycotts in North Carolina based on the law.
North Carolina’s House Bill 2, which has been on the books exactly one year as of Thursday, will the cost the state $3.76 billion after Gov. Pat McCrory signed it into law as result of the cancellation of business expansions, performers nixing events and visitors boycotting the state.
The AP unveils its analysis after the NCAA has North Carolina that it won’t place championship games in the state through 2022 if HB2 remains on the books, which would be a major economic blow for the state.
Chris Sgro, executive director of Equality North Carolina, said in a statement the AP analysis demonstrates HB2 has caused continued harm to the economic climate in North Carolina.
This pressure eventually led to the repeal of HB2 in the spring of 2017.
Now, North Carolina is making another step toward protecting its citizens, this time literally protecting its youngest civilians, by taking strong measures to fortify schools against attack.
North Carolina’s Henderson County is hiring armed security for each of its public schools as a way of preventing an attack like the one at Florida’s Parkland high school.
The security personnel are being sought now and will be in place by the start of the 2018-2019 school year.
The Daily Wire quoted Henderson School board chairwoman Amy Lynn Holt saying, “Henderson County has always been a sleepy little town. We’ve not felt like we’re threatened here. Well, we have to start acting like we’re threatened.”
The armed personnel will be “with law enforcement or military backgrounds,” and Henderson County Sheriff Charles McDonald said the county chose this approach a way of keeping students safe while allowing teachers to focus on teaching, rather than be part-time security.
This method of protecting American school children has been at the forefront of America’s mind ever since the February 14th mental-illness incident at a Parkland, Florida high school left 17 dead.
During that incident, the attacker, Nikolas Cruz, was left to carry out his rampage unimpeded as embarrassingly cowardly sheriff’s deputies from Broward County waited outside of the school – a horrific reality that has infuriated Americans around the nation.
