BURLINGTON, N.C. – The group Alamance County Open Carry is standing guard at the Alamance County Republican Party headquarters after it was vandalized Friday morning.

“We have been requested to provide security at Republican Headquarters,” Alamance County Open Carry said on Facebook. “If you can get off your phones and keyboards and would like to take a stand for your 1st Amendment right while exercising your 2nd Amendment right. I’ll see you there.”

The GOP headquarters in Alamance County was found vandalized Friday morning with the words “F*** Trump YESSIR” written on a wall outside and “NA” spray-painted on the front door.

This is the second time in less than a month that a Republican Party headquarters in North Carolina has been vandalized. On Oct. 16, the Republican Party headquarters in Hillsborough was vandalized with graffiti and damaged with a flammable material thrown through the front window.
