NC Cops Oppose Constitutional Carry ( they might have seen it coming)

Fraternal Order of Police opposes NC gun permit bill | CHARLOTTE, N.C.
(June 08, 2017)
New North Carolina gun bill will allow concealed carry without a permit.
But perhaps .. not just now.
(FOP Spokesman): "I just feel like it's going to put a lot more guns on the street readily available that is really not necessary ..." 
The officer may be correct in any or all of his objections; but here's the root of the problem:
 Permits are currently granted to legal gun owners 21 and up, but the vetting process can take months.   (emphasis added)

MONTHS?   What's so hard about a simple NICS check?

So ... these guns will be on the street eventually, right?  So why bitch about the legal process?

Question: What's so special about North Carolina, that they are so slow to respond to a simple background check?

Answer: Any Honest Citizen will revolt against this administrative delay, and refuse to abide by it.

Translation:  they will ignore your silly-ass regulations and do what they think is necessary..

This new bill will allow NC citizens to carry without the delay of applying for a Concealed Carry License.  Which benefits the citizens, but the NC Police are reluctant to resist opposing the movement.   Which may, in part, explain the months long delay in granting Concealed Carry licenses in the past.

NC is not serving the interests of their citizens. 
 They get money for processing applications!

Any state must accept that if a citizen is not dis-allowed from purchasing a firearm, they are also not dis-allowed from a Concealed Carry License.  If you can buy a gun, you should be free to carry it.

 It's in the Second Amendment ... you can look it up.
 "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
Notice that "KEEP" (own) and "BEAR ARMS" (carry) are equivalent.

But it takes NC "Months" to process applications.

North Carolinians,  already frustrated by their attempts to legitimately purchase a firearm, are once again frustrated by the states refusal to promptly vet their right to bear those arms.

It may be that the citizens of the state of North Carolina have lost faith with their 'protectors', and decided to take matters into their own hands.   It's "The American Way", and perhaps part of why the Democrats among us distrust gun owners.
We don't fit their ... whatchamaycallit?  
(Someone please fill in the word; I can't keep up with current liberal hatespeach)

If The State does not trust its citizens, then why should the citizens trust the state?

I don't have and answer to that question.  

Do you?

It is possible that NC has a lot of transplanted citizens from NYC and NJ, that are leery of the concealed carry concept. Thus the delay in processing CC requests. Maybe so, maybe not.

So, what you're saying is that if you're undecided, it's better to yield to the fears of the tamed than to embrace the rights of the free?

The military high command does not trust it's disciplined soldiers, sailors, Marines, and airmen to be armed, except under rare and special circumstances. Why would you expect the State to trust it's millions of citizens, who are not disciplined.

I DO expect the military to trust its service members, that's why. I have a son in the navy, who is a Master at Arms, and he does carry his service weapon every day. He and I have not discussed this issue specifically, but he has made several comments on the lack of "readiness" for "incidents" at military installations.
