The director of the N.C. Justice Academy calls her outdoor shooting range the “sound of freedom.” On the contrary, shooting from early morning to late at night only 200 to 300 feet from residences is the sound of a police state.
Depriving people of the value of their property without compensation—no, that’s not freedom; that’s trampling on our constitutional rights.
Building a drainage culvert across someone else’s land without notice, let alone permission—no, that’s not freedom.
Violating our county requirements for an outdoor shooting range—no, that’s not freedom.
Pretending that an “open house” is a public hearing—no, that’s not freedom.
Pretending that the community has an opportunity for “input” when the decision has already been made—no, that’s not freedom.
While local law enforcement is essential to preserving order in our communities, it is our military—not our local law enforcement—that fights to preserve our freedoms: our constitutional rights. On the other hand, the Justice Academy director is undermining our freedoms.
