N.C.: Legislature Fails To Act On Right To Hunt Measure

posted on July 7, 2016

The North Carolina Legislature adjourned last Friday, forsaking an opportunity to advance protections for state sportsmen’s hunting heritage when the House failed to act on House Bill 3, the Omnibus Constitutional Amendments bill.

Part of this legislative package included NRA-supported language that sought to allow North Carolinians to vote on whether they wanted to amend the North Carolina Constitution to affirm that it is a right of the public to hunt, fish and harvest wildlife. This language passed the Senate on June 28, and while there appeared to be no opposition to the Right to Hunt & Fish language, the House never took up H3. 

While disappointing, NRA has already begun working with pro-hunting legislators to ensure that solid language that would affirm the right to hunt and fish will be considered next year. 

USE YOUR POWER!

NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action is encouraging North Carolina sportsmen to contact their state representatives and let them know they are disappointed that the House did not take up the right to hunt and fish provisions in H3, and that they hope their representative will work with NRA to pass this amendment to the North Carolina Constitution next year.
