Commonsense Move Of The Week

Friday, February 8, 2008

In last week's "Outrage of the Week," we reported on Pasquotank County, in North Carolina, requiring those obtaining a gun permit to stand in the same line as convicted sex offenders.   

This week, we're happy to report that Pasquotank County officials have decided to change the sign in the Public Service Building that required gun permit seekers and sex offenders to register at the same window (http://www.dailyadvance.com/news/content/news/stories/2008/02/04/0205GunsSexSign

Pasquotank County Manager Randy Keaton said, "Sheriff (Randy) Cartwright and I agree that the sign is misleading and we will develop a sign that is more appropriate.  There was no malicious intent toward gun owners and no attempt to embarrass people who are seeking gun permits."  

Kudos to Pasquotank County officials for taking quick, appropriate, commonsense action in response to the public's outcry!
