The Bill passed! The only hurdle left is for the Governor to sign it into law. From GRNC:

"Gun Rights Supporters:

You won a great victory today. Despite opposition by the North Carolina Sheriffs' Association and equivocation by members of Republican leadership, House Bill 937 ("Amend Various Firearms Laws") today passed from conference committee and was approved by both the NC House and Senate and represents the most sweeping gain for gun rights in North Carolina history.

It now heads for Governor Patrick McCrory, who may sign or veto the bill, or simply allow it to lie on his desk, in which case it becomes law thirty days after the General Assembly adjourns.

As GRNC demanded of leadership, all aspects beyond the purchase permit repeal remain intact, including:

Restaurant carry;
Limited campus carry (permit-holders may keep guns in locked vehicles on any publicly controlled campus, plus an improvement that specifically allows guns to be removed from those vehicles if necessary for self-defense, plus faculty members without concealed handgun permits may);
Assemblies for which admission is charged;
State parking lots;
Hunting with suppressors;
Privacy provisions for concealed handgun and purchase permits to prevent media abuses; and
Language to clarify and narrow the "recreational facilities" within municipal parks where cities may still ban guns.

Pistol Purchase Permit Burdens Lowered

Although full repeal of the Jim Crow-era pistol purchase permit law did not remain in the bill, thanks to your input and the efforts of Senator Buck Newton (R-Johnston, Nash, Wilson, GRNC ****), the following improvements were made:

•Prohibits sheriffs from limiting the number of permits issued;
•Prohibits additional fees for permits;
•Requires sheriffs to list statutory reasons for denial;
•Requires sheriffs to keep de-identified records on why permits are denied; and
•Places the burden on sheriffs to revoke permits from those commit disqualifying offenses.

Help GRNC Prepare for the Next Stage!


Frankly, it has been quite a battle. Between radio spots, mailings, $3,000 per month bills to send alerts (no, sending alerts to 87,000 people can't be done for free), and more, GRNC has spent nearly $40,000 on just the HB 937 campaign. We need your help to prepare for the next stage.

Glad it passed.

I saw this on another forum I belong to and tried to sign the petition to the Governor but I couldn't connect. Same problem with the hot link here.

Anyone else having trouble?

You could even have a bigger effect by taking the time to write a personal email and then call the Governors office and voicing your request.
