Right to Keep and Bear Arms Strengthened in North Carolina

NC Lawmakers Pass Sweeping Changes to Gun Laws

From The Associated Press, July 24, 2013

North Carolina lawmakers have approved a bill greatly expanding where concealed handguns are legally allowed.

The bill approved by both the House and Senate on Tuesday allows concealed-carry permit holders to take firearms into bars and restaurants and other places where alcohol is served as long as the owner doesn’t expressly forbid it.

The measure will also allow concealed-carry permit holders to store weapons in locked cars on the campus of any public school or university. Guns will also now be allowed on greenways, playgrounds and other public recreation areas.

The final bill dropped a controversial provision that would have repealed the long-standing law requiring a background check and permit issued by county sheriffs for handgun purchases.

The measure now heads to Gov. Pat McCrory’s desk.
