Paraphrasing Ben Franklin a bit concerning the situation in Charlotte...

"those who give up their rights for security deserve neither."

Many lawyers  are probably making less than plumbers these days.  I'd think 
one might easily find  legal help with this obvious rights violation.  What 
are they going to do, arrest you? 

Having worked for decades as a photojournalist I can't remember all the 
times I've been threatened with arrest. I can remember all the times I've 
been arrested, zero. As old Ben F. said... "stand yer ground." Even in 
backwoods N.C. some of the city fathers might not be dawg stupid enough to 
try and make this idiocy fly.

Another solution might be bring yer bible in one hand, yer Leica around yer 
nek and a sign of your true beliefs in the other.... see below....

Hell's bell's, even Newt Gingrich would be afraid to question your loyalty 
with friends like that.
