Its evident that since he didnt make it in the primarys that your argument is no longer important.
But since you talk about this LITTLE KNOWN FACT, here is the law from the actual NC Gen law books:
V. FELONY FIREARMS ACT
Another aspect of North Carolina law necessary for a good working knowledge of firearms
laws, is our Felony Firearms Act, found in N.C.G.S.§ 14-415.1. This restriction on gun ownership
applies to any person who has been convicted of any North Carolina felony or violation of criminal
laws in other states, or the United States, which are punishable by imprisonment for a term
exceeding one (1) year. Effective December 1, 2004, these individuals cannot purchase, own,
possess, or have in their custody, care, or control, any firearm at any location, or any weapon of
mass death and destruction. This prohibition continues indefinitely. This prohibition does not
apply, however, to “antique firearms” as set forth in Section II. B. of this publication.
The Federal Firearms Statute, at 18 U.S.C.§ 922, is independent of North Carolina’s and should
be consulted before anyone convicted of a felony, in any state or federal court, possesses, receives
or transports any firearm. For detailed information on this federal law, persons are urged to contact
the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, or their local U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Hey, Former Deputy! That means if Sheriff Hege chooses, he can legally carry a cap and ball revolver while on duty, just like Wild Bill's. Too bad he lost. NOT!

Former Deputy, I wonder if Gerald knows how to load and fire a percussion handgun? At one time he was partial to Keckler & Koch MP5s. I recall the time he was demonstrating the H & K to a newsman. He let go a few rounds into High Rock Lake. Shooting into water with a SMG, Hege would have to be a fart smucker.
