(My letter to NC Governor Roy Cooper; cc: Buncombe Commissioners & Sheriff & Asheville City Council)
Dear Governor Cooper:
I live in Buncombe County and a serious matter regarding a local threat of domestic terrorism has come to my attention.
The Mayor of the City of Asheville, Esther Manheimer, along with the entire City Council, have unanimously voted to tell NC State as well as Federal officials to “ban 'assault’ weapons”. Manheimer admitted her agenda is to go further, to ban ALL semi-automatic firearms.
Asheville calls for assault weapons ban; mayor says she would go further
Resulting from political deceit, it is somewhat difficult to understand the meaning of “assault weapon”, because both the mainstream media and politicians such as these often erroneously refer to semi-automatic firearms as “assault weapons” in attempts to control the narrative and scare an uninformed public. In this case, it has been admitted by Manheimer that her agenda is to prohibit ALL semi-automatic firearms, which is nearly every single firearm in existence, including revolvers.
Such declarations made by these pubic officials constitutes a violation of their sworn oath of office to protect and defend the US Constitution from all foreign and domestic threats. In doing so they have exemplified incompetence to hold office not only for violating their oath of office, but also for treason against the American people for conveying threats of domestic terrorism.
As a very concerned citizen of Buncombe County, I am making these actions known to your office of NC Governor. Every Asheville City Council member has violated their oath of office to protect and defend the US Constitution by calling for the NC State legislature to ban both fully automatic and semi-automatic firearms, and should be removed from office immediately and also be charged for treason for communicating threats which would directly violate the individual and unalienable Natural Right to Self-Defense, which the US Constitution is designed to legally protect.
