Omnibus Pro-Gun Bill Sent To North Carolina Governor

Thursday, June 23, 2011

Please Contact the Governor Today and Urge Her to Sign House Bill 650!

The North Carolina Senate passed NRA–backed House Bill 650 on June 14, and the House voted to concur with the Senate version on June 16, as the General Assembly prepared to adjourn for the year.  This legislation has now been sent to Governor Bev Perdue and awaits her signature.  If Governor Perdue signs this bill, the much needed reforms it contains will go into effect on December 1, 2011.  Please contact the Governor immediately and respectfully urge her to sign H 650!

Introduced by pro-gun state Representative Mark Hilton (R-96), House Bill 650 is an extensive reform of North Carolina gun laws.  It contains Castle Doctrine language, Fraudulent Firearms Purchase language, allows Right-to-Carry (RTC) permit holders to store firearms in their vehicles when parked on the grounds of certain state properties and courthouses, removes the restriction on owning (but not possessing) firearms by those subject to certain orders of protection, allows for the purchase of rifles and shotguns by North Carolina residents in all of the 49 other states, removes some restrictions on local governments prohibiting RTC permit holders from carrying firearms in parks under local control, as well as other improvements. 

While HB 650 makes tremendous improvements to current law, the NRA was disappointed that many provisions in the original bill were not passed.  To ensure passage of the best possible bill despite the removal of certain provisions, the NRA worked closely in the House with the bill's sponsor, Representative Mark Hilton.  Please contact the Representative Hilton and thank him for his support of the Second Amendment and H 650.  Representative Mark Hilton can be reached by phone at (919) 733-5988 or by e-mail Mark.Hilton@ncleg.net.

Please contact Governor Perdue by clicking here and thank her for her past support of the Second Amendment, and urge her to sign into law this critical legislation.
