The leader of a North Carolina group protesting the stateís anti-lockdown measures said he is ďwilling to kill peopleĒ in order to fight back against government restrictions.

Adam Smith, one of the founders of ReOpenNC, said during a Facebook live chat this week that he was willing to resort to violence to push back against restrictions that remain in place in order to fight the spread of the coronavirus. As the News Observer reported, Smith repeatedly said he was prepared to react violently if the government were to push back with force against the protests.

ďAre we willing to kill people? Are we willing to lay our lives down? We have to say yes,Ē Smith said in the 17-minute video, which was taken down after the first reports emerged of his violent threats.

Comments ahead of ReOpen NC march raise concerns of safety​

RALEIGH, N.C. ó Comments made on social media ahead of tomorrow's ReOpen NC march raised concerns of safety​ and violence.

Adam Smith, the husband of ReOpen NC's co-founder, said reopening NC to protect businesses and constitutional rights are issues some should be willing to kill over.

"We want to pick up arms? Do we want to kill anybody? Of course not, nobody wants to take lives. We donít want to kill anybody. But are we willing to kill people, are we willing to lay our lives down? Yes. We have to say yes," he said.

Social media has been buzzing about his statement; however, he said his words were taken out of context.

His wife Ashley Smith, co-founder of ReOpen NC, organized protests in five North Carolina locations on Memorial Day, including Raleigh at the Governor's Mansion. She said all protests will be peaceful and does not expect Monday's protest to turn violent. "I doubt very seriously thatís going to happen," she said. "We havenít seen that, and I of course donít see that happening."
