HB 746 senate

When the N.C. General Assembly returns in May, lawmakers are expected to allow 18 year-olds with no training and no background checks to carry hidden loaded weapons in public. This is dangerous and unacceptable. 

HB 746 has already passed the House and Senate consideration in the next step.  We need you to contact state senators Alexander, Barringer and Tarte and ask them to stop this bill.

The public is behind our opposition to permitless carry.  Only 10% of Democrats and 30% of Republicans support the gun policy proposal of allowing concealed carry without a permit.

Please  call and/or write these senators and share with them why HB 746 is a dangerous bill and that you urge them to oppose it. Contact information is below:  

  • Senator John Alexander – 919.733.5850, john.alexander@ncleg.net
  • Senator Tamara Barringer - 919.733.5653, tamara.barringer@ncleg.net
  • Senator Jeff Tarte - 919.715.3050, jeff.tarte@ncleg.net

Here is a sample message:

Hi, my name is _____. I am calling to urge the senator to work to make sure that HB 746 is not brought up for a vote in the senate. I feel strongly that an 18 year-old with no training or background check should not be able to carry a hidden loaded weapon in public. This is a dangerous idea. Please get in touch with me to tell me your position on HB 746 – (contact information)

    Don’t where your statistics come from claiming the public is behind your opposition but you are sadly mistaken. Everyone I have spoken to throughout our great State supports law abiding citizens not having to pay to carry. After all criminals are carrying illegally and not paying a dime. Why should a law abiding citizen have to pay? And sorry folks but 18 year olds are fighting and dying for you and your countrymen to protect your right to spread your supposed facts and my right to call you out on it. Let us not punish our soldiers. They’re old enough to lay down their lives for you and I but you don’t think they are mature enough to own a weapon? That’s hypocrisy. Oh and your lady on the WBTV news stating that AR15s are used in most of the mass shootings?? My God you need to do some research before allowing your members to spew ignorance. The MOST deadly school shooting, Virginia Tech, was with pistols!! Get your facts straight before you spew them forth. Many items preceded the scary black rifle on the list of murder weapons in this Country. It is way down the list folks. We have many serious issues in this Country but law abiding gun owners are not the issue. Put your efforts to good use addressing the real issues or stop claiming to be against gun violence. Criminals will always have guns because they DO NOT obey laws. We need more stringent punishment for criminals who use guns during the crimes they are committing. We need to be better at punishing felons illegally possessing firearms. We need parents to raise children with morals and respect. Everyone does not deserve a trophy. Participation is expected and there is not or should not be a trophy for it. Please point your efforts in the right direction instead of attacking things and people who carry no blame. I’m all for lobbying our legislators for appropriate legislation but your efforts are severely misguided.
