Gun rights advocates in North Carolina are now pushing for a new law that would allow people to carry a concealed weapon without a permit. The new “Gun Rights Amendment” bill or HB 1148 is soon to be voted on in the NC House.
Presently, the law requires that anyone who wants to conceal a handgun under their clothes or in a purse, has to get a concealed carry permit.
To get a permit currently requires eight hours of training as well as a gun range test, then a federal, state, and local background check, and fingerprints.
If HB 1148 passes, all those requirements will be annulled.
The North Carolina House moved forward with the “Gun Rights Amendment” bill about forty-eight hours after the mass shooting at an Orlando gay nightclub.
At this point it’s not clear when the bill will be voted on, but if you’d like to see it pass or terminated, you can contact your representative and let them know how they should vote.
Here is the Bill.
