North Carolina Legislative Update

Monday, August 5, 2002

North Carolina NRA members must act quickly to make sure important lawsuit legislation reaches the Governor’s desk!

 In July, the North Carolina Senate overwhelmingly passed H.B. 622, the NRA-backed measure to stop reckless lawsuits against firearm manufacturers. By a vote of 42-5, the Senate agreed to prevent municipalities from filing politically-motivated lawsuits that attempt to hold gun makers liable for the criminal misuse of their products. On Monday, August 5, the bill faces a critical concurrence vote in the House before it can be presented to the Governor for his signature. You can make a difference by encouraging your Representative to support H.B. 622! If you are unsure of how to reach your Representative, please call the main General Assembly number, (919) 733-7928, and ask for assistance. You can also e-mail your legislators directly by using the box below.
