North Carolina: Contact Members of the Senate Judiciary I and II Committee in Support of Pro-Gun Reforms

Monday, April 1, 2013

House Bill 17, introduced by state Representative Justin Burr (R-67), passed in the state House this week on a strong  97-20 vote. H 17 would make information regarding permittees -- including those who have acquired a permit to purchase a handgun and those who have obtained a Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP) -- accessible only to law enforcement.

This legislation is critical to protect the privacy of law-abiding gun owners in the Tar Heel State, especially given instances of anti-gun media outlets publishing information regarding CHP holders. North Carolinians deserve the same protections that residents in 37 other states already enjoy due to Right-to-Carry confidentiality laws in place.

H 17 has been assigned to the Senate Judiciary I Committee. Please contact members of this committee and urge them to support H 17. Please click here to identify members of this committee.

Also, state Senator Andrew Brock (R-34) has introduced Senate Bill 443, which would eliminate the practice of destroying lawful, functioning firearms that have been found or received by law enforcement. S 443 would require the firearms be transferred to a law enforcement agency for official use, be sold at public auction to Federal Firearms License (FFL) holders, be maintained by the State Bureau of Investigation for training or experimental purposes, or be transferred to a museum or historical society. The NRA will work with Senator Brock to make additional improvements to this bill.

S 443 has been referred to the Senate Judiciary II Committee and is scheduled to be heard next Thursday, April 4, at 10:00 AM. Please contact members of this committee and urge them to support S 443, as well as support efforts to make this good bill even better. Please click here to identify members of this committee.
