Tomorrow, May 31, House Bill 746, an omnibus gun bill that makes a number of improvements to existing law, is scheduled to be heard in the House Judiciary IV Committee. Introduced by state Representative Chris Millis (R-16), this legislation would establish that carrying a concealed firearm without a permit is legal in North Carolina, just as carrying openly without a permit has always been. Among other things, HB 746 would also make clarifications to the law that allows for the carrying of firearms on church property when the church also has an education facility as part of its property. Further, it would eliminate the requirement that applicants for a Pistol Purchase Permit sign a notarized waiver to allow sheriffs to access the mental health records of the applicant.
Please contact members of the House Judiciary IV Committee and urge them to support HB 746! Also, please contact your state Representative and urge them to support the bill when it is brought to the House floor.
