Great news! We did it. The N.C. legislature has adjourned for now and they did not pass the permitless carry bill, HB 746. It was because you called, emailed, wrote letters, and visited the General Assembly that this victory was possible. Thank you.
Because of you,18 year olds will not be allowed to carry a hidden loaded weapon in public and all who wish to carry a concealed weapon will have to go through 8 hours of classroom training and live fire training. I don’t know about you but that makes me feel much safer walking around in public.
We also stopped campus carry and the elimination of our background check system on private handgun sales (pistol purchase permitting system). You spoke and the General Assembly listened.
Thank you again,
PS – Stay tuned for future updates and action because legislators will be coming back to the General Assembly on August 3rd and September 6th. These are for special sessions. We will be there every step of the way fighting to keep North Carolinians safe from gun violence.
