North Carolina: Pro-Gun Bills in the State House and Senate

The House Committee on Judiciary Subcommittee A heard House Bill 17 yesterday. HB 17, introduced by state Representative Justin Burr (R-67), seeks to remove the prohibition on Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP) holders carrying a concealed firearm into any establishment licensed to serve alcohol.  In addition, this legislation would make information regarding permittees — including those who have acquired a permit to purchase a handgun — accessible only to law enforcement.  Unfortunately, this Committee amended HB 17 to remove the Restaurant Carry provisions and then passed this bill with the CHP confidentiality provisions.  HB 17 remains a pro-gun bill that NRA strongly supports, and it could be considered on the House floor any day.
