North Carolina: Crossbow Permit-to-Purchase Repeal Signed by Governor!

Monday, May 9, 2011

We are pleased to announce that Senate Bill 406 was signed into law by Governor Bev Perdue on April 28. This bill, which repeals the requirement that one obtain a purchase permit before acquiring a crossbow, sailed out of the state Senate in March by a unanimous vote and was passed in the state House of Representatives on April 19 by a 69 to 48 vote. S 406 was introduced by state Senators Andrew C. Brock (R-34), Don East (R-30) and Buck Newton (R-11). 

Thank you to all who made your voices heard during this process!
