Convicted Hot Dog Vendor Gets Some Major Help
Awhile ago we featured an article and story about a fellow licensed vendor that was arrested after he failed to comply to North Carolina State laws regarding the use of a commissary. You can get up to speed by watching this video, but afterwards please read below.
Last night, Staff Attorney for the North Carolina Institute for Constitutional Law; Tyler Younts was on the show and briefed us on why the case is pending in the NC Appellant Courts. Thanks to groups like this who defend our individual liberties. Mr. Younts and his group work for free, they rely on individual donations and have dedicated their lives to helping others.
From all of us here at HDVR – We thank you, Mr. Younts!!! To learn more about this case and to pitch in a buck or two, click here.
