North Carolina: Governor Bev Perdue Signs NRA-Backed Omnibus Gun Bill into Law

Friday, June 24, 2011

Yesterday, Governor Bev Perdue signed House Bill 650 into law. H 650 will make several positive reforms to North Carolina’s gun laws.   

Introduced by pro-gun state Representative Mark Hilton (R-96), H 650 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,

·         allows for the possession of Title II firearms in conformity with federal law and without limitation on any lawful use, as well as other improvements. 

 The reforms in H 650 will take effect on December 1, 2011.

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 at Mark.Hilton@ncleg.net.

Your calls and e-mails make a difference!  Please contact Governor Bev Perdue and thank her for signing into law House Bill 650 and her continued support of the Second Amendment in North Carolina. Contact information for Governor Perdue can be found here.
