HB 650 passed! (Castle Doctrine and ammendments to other laws)
NRA-ILA :: North Carolina Omnibus Gun Bill Passes Before General Assembly Adjourns Tomorrow!
A step in the right direction.
With the North Carolina General Assembly set to adjourn this Friday, the state Senate acted quickly and passed House Bill 650
yesterday, before time ran out. This legislation, introduced by pro-gun state Representative Mark Hilton (R-96), is an extensive reform of North Carolina gun laws. It contains Castle Doctrine language, Fraudulent Firearms Purchase language, allows Right-to-Carry (RTC) permit holders to store firearms in their vehicles when parked on the grounds of certain state properties and courthouses, removes the restriction on owning (but not possessing) firearms by those subject to certain orders of protection, allows for the purchase of rifles and shotguns by North Carolina residents in all of the 49 other states, removes some restrictions on local governments prohibiting RTC permit holders from carrying firearms in parks under local control, as well as other improvements.
Another of the changes is that NC now recognizes all concealed permits from out of State.
§ 14‑415.24. Reciprocity; out‑of‑state handgun permits.
(a) A valid concealed handgun permit or license issued by another state is valid in North Carolina.
