Bill Allowing North Carolina Judges to Carry Concealed Heads to Senate Floor!

Friday, July 27, 2007

On Friday, July 27, the Senate Judiciary II Committee passed House Bill 573, would allow judges who have valid North Carolina concealed carry permits to lawfully carry a firearm for personal protection in courthouses.  The bill now heads to the full Senate for its consideration.

This legislation is necessary to ensure that judges, especially in rural areas, where the most effective courthouse security measures may not be economically feasible, are able to provide for their own security.  HB 573 will simply allow one more option for judges to exercise to ensure their protection.

Please contact your State Senator today at (919) 733-7928 and respectfully urge him or her to support this much-needed measure.  For further contact information, please click here.
