NC General Assembly Passes Smart, Real World Gun Legislation

This is not “common sense” reform, ie, massive restrictions on the 2nd Amendment Rights of law abiding citizens, but real world reforms that make sense. And will surely piss off Liberals who hate the notion of Other People owning guns

(WRAL) The state House and Senate have approved a sweeping package of gun lawsthat tighten penalties for those who violate firearm laws and expand where those with concealed handgun permits can carry their weapons.

The bill now goes to Gov. Pat McCrory for his signature or veto. (snip)

The compromise passed by by both chambers Tuesday keeps the current handgun permit system in place but give local sheriffs less latitude in issuing the permits. Sheriffs will no longer be able restrict the number of handgun permits an individual can obtain in a year, something that some sheriffs do now. Also, sheriffs will have to keep a record and show cause when they reject a handgun permit application.(snip)

Other parts of the bill will allow concealed handgun permit holders to bring their weapons to bars and restaurants that serve alcohol – although they are not supposed to consume alcohol – carry them in funeral processions and allow them to keep firearms locked in their car when parked on college or public school campuses.

The bill also removes information regarding those who hold concealed handgun permits from public view.

The bill also strengthens penalties for those who violate firearms laws and will increase the amount of information, such as mental health problems, in the state’s background check system.

There are many other provisions in the bill expanding the Rights of The People to legally carry guns, particularly handguns, while cracking down on those who are Bad People. Private businesses will still be allowed to ban concealed carry if they choose.
