North Dakota: NRA-Backed Concealed Carry Reform Legislation Becomes Law

On Wednesday, April 15, Governor Jack Dalrymple (R) signed important concealed carry reform legislation into law.  House Bill 1241, sponsored by state Representative Roscoe Streyle (R-3), focuses on expanding opportunities for permitted individuals.  As signed into law, HB 1241 will:

  • Expand your right to carry in more areas such as musical concerts, political rallies or functions
  • Recognize the right to carry in public rest areas and restrooms
  • Recognize the right to carry in public parks
  • Recognize the right to carry in stores that sell liquor
  • Allow hunters to utilize legally owned short-barreled rifles to take any game for which a rifle is allowed
  • Recognize that class 1 and class 2 permits are equally valid in North Dakota

HB 1241 takes effect on July 1.  NRA would like to thank everyone who has taken the time to contact their elected officials on this issue.  Please contact Governor Dalrymple and thank him for signing this important piece of legislation into law.
