North Carolina: Omnibus Pro-Gun Bill Scheduled for Second Hearing Tomorrow

Today, House Bill 746, an omnibus gun bill that makes a number of improvements to existing law, passed the House Judiciary IV Committee.  HB 746 is now scheduled for a hearing in the House Finance Committee tomorrow.  Introduced by state Representative Chris Millis (R-16), this legislation would establish that carrying a concealed firearm without a permit is legal in North Carolina, just as carrying openly without a permit has always been.  Among other things, HB 746 would also make clarifications to the law that allows for the carrying of firearms on church property when the church also has an education facility as part of its property.  Further, it would eliminate the requirement that applicants for a Pistol Purchase Permit sign a notarized waiver to allow sheriffs to access the mental health records of the applicant.
