North Carolina: Pro-Gun Omnibus Bill Needs Your Help!

Last week, House Bill 746, omnibus pro-gun legislation that makes a number of improvements to existing law, passed the House Finance Committee.  HB 746 is now headed to the floor for consideration by the full House of Representatives and it could be brought up as early as Tuesday. Anti-gun organizations, including those backed by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, have been working to derail HB 746, and they are desperate to see it fail. Some opponents have stooped to misrepresenting what the bill does, claiming it eliminates the current Concealed Handgun Permit system. It is critical you contact your state representative as soon as possible!

Please contact your state Representative and urge them to support HB 746!

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 be sure to remind legislators that the current CHP law remains in place, in spite of what some may be claiming. To locate contact information for your state Representative, please click here.
