I'm looking forward to Sheriff Hege's return, He cleaned up Davidson County, I personally think he was set up. Hege was the only sheriff that would actually get out there and work right along side the deputy's Ive went through several license checks and he was there working. I cant wait, the sheriff we have now might as well go ahead and clean out his desk and hit the unemployment line, Cause Hege's coming back.....I will vote for him hands down, this is the only election that I will have ever voted in, I dont even vote for the presidency.....God Bless Hege!!!!
What happen.Your vote didn't count.

Guys...listen to me....i worked for the Hege faction. He pled guilty to several felonys, because he WAS guilty, and guilty of much more. You have no idea of what was going on behind the scenes of the courthouse, and the plots against his own deputys. There are three other deputies in the federal prison for less then what he did for over 20 year sentences.. But yeah, give him the position, and let him serve and protect with a stick, cause he cant carry a freakin gun.

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:


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.
