North Carolina: Update on Firearm-Related Bills in Raleigh for the Week of April 24

The NRA-backed omnibus pro-gun bill, House Bill 562, is still awaiting consideration by the House Judiciary I Committee.  As previously reported, this comprehensive reform bill seeks to make a number of critical pro-gun reforms including (but not limited to) requiring chief law enforcement officer (CLEO) of a jurisdiction to certify the transfer or making of a firearm in a timely manner, improve the existing range protection law and repeal the requirement that law-abiding citizens must obtain a permit from their local sheriff before acquiring a handgun.

Your urgent help is needed!  Please contact members of the House Judiciary I Committee and encourage them to take up HB 562 as soon as possible.                 

In addition to this legislation, a number of other bills remain active.

House Bill 849, introduced by state Representative Brad Salmon (D-51), is a pro-gun bill that would create an exemption that would allow debtors to retain firearms valued up to $5,000.00, rather than have them be subject to the enforcement claims of creditors.  This bill recognizes the fundamental right to personal protection by ensuring citizens who have fallen on hard times, financially, will not be required to sell all of their firearms maintained for personal protection in order to satisfy their debts.  The exemption limits the number of firearms that can be retained to no more than two handguns and four rifles or shotguns.

House Bill 891, introduced by state Representative Jay Adams (R-96), is another bill that seeks to improve the issuing process for concealed handgun permits.

Please stay tuned for future alerts to see what you can do to help advance the Second Amendment in North Carolina.  In the meantime, please use the contact information provided below to contact members of the House Judiciary I Committee in support of HB 562.
