RALEIGH – It would be easy enough to poke fun at Glen Bradley.
Bradley is a first-term Republican state legislator from the Franklin County town of Youngsville. He has filed a bill to create a legislative commission to study having North Carolina issue its own currency.
He's also considering legislation to require state government to accept gold and silver in payment of taxes and other bills. That way the state can begin backing that new currency with precious metals.
And he's filed bills aimed at restricting federal regulation of guns and agricultural goods produced and sold solely within North Carolina.
