Did the "NRA approved" version pass, or what it modified before the vote?

GRNC said that the amendments added in the senate satisfied them and they would remain "neutral" on the bill. It passed the House without any other change.

Here is what the NRA said:

"On Thursday, July 17, the North Carolina House of Representatives passed Senate Bill 2081 by a vote of 111 to 0.  SB 2081 will now head to the desk of Governor Mike Easley (D) for his consideration.  As passed, S 2081 now requires the reporting to NICS of all involuntary commitments to a mental health treatment program, provided such commitment carried with it a finding that the individual was "a danger to self or others."  This legislation also establishes a process, which includes a hearing that is "closed to the public," for one affected by the commitment provision to petition to have his or her name removed from NICS, thus restoring the petitioner's ability to legally purchase, possess, and transfer firearms.  This legislation goes no further than the requirements under the "NICS Improvement Amendments Act," and NRA is grateful to those legislators who worked to both improve the original version, as well as those who made sure no anti-gun amendments were added to it."
