Don't carry east of I-95

Your concealed firearm, of course. At least until the state of emergency is over.

For some reason, when a state of emergency is declared, it becomes illegal for those legally licensed to carry a concealed weapon to do so. See here for some more specifics, although unfortunately the author wasn't quite specific enough to spell our governor's name right.

Per this WECT article, the governor declared a state of emergency for counties east of I-95. Looking at the map, that's a significant swath of territory.

2011 state of emergency

I'm of the opinion that a state of emergency is the ideal time to be carrying a concealed firearm assuming you've got the license to do so. Obviously, there were enough politicians at some point in time who felt otherwise.
