North Carolina Latest State To Consider “Permitless” Carry

posted on February 11, 2017

A measure was introduced on Wednesday that would bring “permitless” concealed carry to the Tar Heel State.

HB 69 would expand North Carolina’s current “permitless” open carry laws to also apply to those wishing to carry concealed. While residents who are legally allowed to possess a firearm would no longer be required to obtain any sort of permit to carry a handgun, the current system would remain in place for those wishing to take advantage of reciprocity agreements with other states. 

“The Second Amendment is the only permit an honest, peaceful citizen should need to carry a firearm, openly or concealed,” Rep. Larry Pittman, one of the seven co-sponsors of the measure, told Guns.com. “We have open carry in North Carolina without any permit required. It makes no sense to differentiate between the same person carrying openly or concealed.” 

While the state’s Republican-controlled House and Senate are likely to concur, the bill must also be approved by Democrat Gov. Roy Cooper. We will keep you up-to-date as this legislation progresses.
