North Carolina: 2013 Legislative Session Convenes

Friday, February 1, 2013

The North Carolina General Assembly convened this week and several pro-gun reforms have already been introduced.

House Bill 17, introduced by state Representative Justin Burr (R-67), would remove the prohibition on Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP) holders carrying a concealed firearm into any establishment licensed to serve alcohol.  In addition, the legislation would make information regarding permittees accessible only to law enforcement.

Also introduced, House Bill 49 by state Representative Phil Shepard (R-15), would prohibit employers from imposing restrictions on employees that would not allow the employees to store firearms and/or ammunition in their locked motor vehicle while parked on the employer's property.

In the Senate, state Senator Stan Bingham (R-33) has introduced Senate Bill 28, which is similar to the provisions of HB 17 that would offer confidentiality for CHP holders.

The NRA is working with several legislators on introducing additional pro-gun reforms, as well as analyzing legislation that may have a negative impact on gun owners and hunters.  We will be sure to continue to provide updates on North Carolina legislation, but please contact your state Representative and urge him or her to support HB 17 and HB 49, and contact your state Senator and urge him or her to support SB 28.
