Permitless Carry Moves Forward In Michigan, North Carolina

posted on June 9, 2017

The House of Representatives in both Michigan and North Carolina have approved permitless carry legislation, bringing both states one step closer to recognizing that the right to keep and bear arms should be free from government-mandated time delays and taxes.

In North Carolina, HB 746 passed by a 65-54 vote after tremendous pressure from both sides at both the state and national level. The measure would lower the age limit for concealed carry from 21 to 18, and remove the requirement that law-abiding citizens obtain a permit to carry concealed.

A package of bills—HB 4416, HB 4417, HB 4418 and HB 4419—passed in the Michigan House on Wednesday by a vote of 59-49. Together, these measures would remove the requirement to obtain a concealed pistol license, but would retain the current permitting system for those who wish to take advantage of reciprocity agreements with other states.

We will keep you updated as these important pro-gun bills continue to advance.
