North Carolina: Pro-Gun Bill Heads To Governor’s Desk

posted on July 29, 2015

The North Carolina Senate passed House Bill 562 late Monday in a bipartisan vote of 40-9. The omnibus legislation now heads to Gov. Pat McCrory for signing. 

While the bill was stripped of some of its original provisions, it still provides some important and much-needed pro-gun reforms. These include:

  • More standardization in approving concealed handgun and pistol purchase permits;
  • Expanded campus carry that allows guns in school parking lots;
  • 15-day window for Chief Law Enforcement Officer approvals on National Firearms Act items;
  • Shooting range protections;
  • Strengthened state preemption laws; and
  • Removal of restrictions against short-barreled rifles for hunting.

The NRA supported this final measure and is urging Gov. McCrory to sign it into law. The governor has already signed other pro-gun legislation this session.
