As early as tomorrow, the North Dakota House could hold a concurrence vote on two pro-gun measures before sending them to the Governor’s desk. Please contact your State Representative and ask them to SUPPORT House Bill 1293 and House Bill 1297.
House Bill 1293 expands the list of firearms that an individual can carry in their vehicle under North Dakota’s Constitutional Carry law. HB 1293 also removes the restrictions on certain times of the day when one can open carry, and reduces the residency requirement for Constitutional Carry from one year to 30 days.
House Bill 1297 expands the list of locations that law-abiding gun owners can carry a concealed firearm for self-defense. HB 1293 clarifies that athletic events are only a prohibited location if they are “school” sporting events. Further, the measure allows for concealed carry in churches if the church has adopted a policy to allow it instead of previously having to obtain specific permission from the preacher or counsel.
Again, please contact your State Representative and ask them to SUPPORT House Bill 1293 and House Bill 1297.
