Winning. No more getting away with murder in North Carolina. Back in 2021 the Republicans passed a strict law against those who come to Carolina and riot. The governor vetoed it. After the 2022 state elections, more Republicans and moderate Democrats were elected on Law and order.
They put the law back up. With veto override powers the Governor this time did not veto it. He will let it pass. Now the Progressives will have to think twice before they come to North Carolina.
A North Carolina bill, designed to increase penalties for rioting, will become law without the signature of Gov. Roy Cooper (D).
For example, the 2022 bill permits law enforcement to hold those accused of rioting for 48 hours before a judge makes a determination about pre-trial detention, whereas the 2023 bill shortens this window to 24 hours.
Additionally, H.B. 40 includes sections requiring state law enforcement agencies to develop policies for protest response and engagement and foreclosing on any interpretation of the law that would tend to “prevent or prohibit” the exercise of First Amendment rights.
North Carolina House Speaker Tim Moore (R) wrote in a statement, “Nearly three years after violent protests devastated communities and businesses in North Carolina, I am pleased that this bipartisan legislation will finally become law.”
