North Carolina: Omnibus Pro-Gun Bill Headed to House Floor

This morning, House Bill 746, an omnibus pro-gun bill that makes a number of improvements to existing law, passed the House Finance Committee.  HB 746 is now headed to the House floor for consideration by the full House of Representatives and it could be on the floor as early as today!

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.
