    Alcohol Restrictions, Curfew Lifted In King
    Police Chief: King Remains Under State Of Emergency Until Monday

    KING, N.C. -- Authorities lifted a curfew and alcohol restrictions in King on Sunday, but said a state of emergency declaration remained in effect until Monday.

    Authorities said the state of emergency declaration would continue until Monday 9 a.m., barring any unforeseen circumstances or severe changes.

    Effective Sunday afternoon, alcohol restrictions and a curfew were lifted. All other remaining restrictions would continue until Monday, said Paula May, King police chief.

    Other restrictions include a ban on the sale or purchase of any type of firearm, ammunition, explosive or any possession of such items off a person's own premises.

    Also on Sunday, the emergency shelter established by the American red Cross at West Stokes High School was closed.

    "We appreciate the support and cooperation of everyone with our efforts to keep the citizens of King safe," May said.

    The state of emergency was declared Friday due to severe weather.

    We can still keep and bear, on our own property....
    It is an old law that won't go away. It was enacted during times of civil unrest, and like everything it grew into the nightmare that it is now.

    They also banned buying and selling. The ban on carrying I'm not a fan of, but I guess it's not too terrible. The ban on sales... that IS pretty bad.

    LA. State, not City.
    We had something similar to that. Now governor Jindal had it overturned after Katrina.

    Alcohol and curfew restrictions? Due to weather?

    yep. Most of NC doen't know what snow is, as we normally only see an inch or two a year. We get 10+ inches and the whole state goes to hell.

    It's been like that in Chicago for a while too. Guns are even illegal to posses in Cook County (Chicago is in Cook county). If you're moving from Wisconsin to Ohio and you're carrying guns, better take a detour.

    Not true. Under federal law you can transport your guns unloaded, locked in your trunk or locked in a case, regardless of what local laws say.
