When we get down to the nitty gritty of the right to bear arms, there is only one, extremely distinct purpose for Second Amendment:  The purging of tyranny.

The entirety of the Constitutional statement is set up to make certain that we can never be conquered as a people.  The Second Amendment makes no judgement on sport shooting, hunting, self defense, or otherwise.  Those are collateral privileges that are provided by the amendment itself.

And, to be honest, they’re pretty great accessories to the idea of self-sufficiency and unending sovereignty.

But, these bits of the right to bear arms aren’t guaranteed.  That is something that the people of North Carolina are looking to change…sooner rather than later.

Lawmakers are presenting voters in North Carolina this November an opportunity to add a right to hunt and fish to their state constitution.

The voter initiative, which passed the legislature as SB 677 by a wide margin on Monday, would open up the bedrock document and install the amendment protecting the right to hunt and fish while establishing public harvest by sportsmen as the preferred method of wildlife management.

“Of all the matters we will consider, this one is perhaps the most simple, but also the most down to earth,” said Rep. David Lewis, R-Harnett, during debates on the House floor. “The one that is truest to what North Carolina is about. This is the right of the people of North Carolina to be able to hunt, fish, and harvest wildlife in accordance with the laws passed here in this chamber.”

If approved by voters, the proposal would be forwarded to a bipartisan state election board and the Secretary of State’s office and would become effective when certified. Doing so, proponents argue, will make it all that much harder to pass anti-hunter — and by extension anti-gun — legislation in future years.

The State of North Carolina has become a bit of a battleground for rights in American as of late, thanks to high profile debates over religious freedom and the safety of gender-fluid restrooms.

Furthermore, this move by the Tar Heel state will galvanize Americans’ right to what they themselves can gather. This may seem like something simple enough to go without mention, but in a world where soda companies are draining entire counties’ worth of water, nothing seems extraordinary.
