RALEIGH, N.C. – A Cabarrus County lawmaker introduced a bill Wednesday that would allow North Carolinians to carry a concealed handgun without the need of a concealed carry permit.

House Bill 69, otherwise known as the Constitutional Carry Act, was presented by Republican Representative Larry Pittman. The bill was also sponsored by three additional Republican representatives.

The current concealed carry law in North Carolina requires an applicant to take and pass a safety and training course that involves the actual firing of handguns and understanding of North Carolina gun laws.

Dan Starks, a longtime gun safety instructor in Charlotte, isn’t worried that the new law will give criminals an easier path to weapons. He says they’ll get them regardless of the laws in place.

“The guns law only affect law abiding citizens,” Starks said.

Starks is concerned, however, that a lack of training and gun safety knowledge could have a negative impact on public safety.

“I think it makes good sense but the question is what kind of training do people have?”

“People carrying a gun without a permit would be like allowing people to drive without having to have a license,” Starks explained. “You get a license because it requires you to learn how to drive, (as well as) the laws. It’s the same thing with a handgun.

“If you’re going to carry a deadly weapon in public, it’s absolutely mandatory that you understand the laws as far as you using it.”

Under the proposed bill, it would still be illegal to carry most concealed weapons, including a razor, metal knuckles, and even a slingshot, to name a few.

 

Lawmakers say they would still encourage gun owners to get a permit to make traveling into other states and purchasing guns more convenient.

A lot of people have strong opinions on both sides of the debate of this issue.

  3. You have actually created some brilliant points here. I specifically appreciate the way you’ve been able to stick so much thought into a relatively short post (comparitively) which creates it an thoughtful publish on your subject. In my opinion, you’ve presented the topic in a quite thorough yet concise manner, that is genuinely useful when someone wants to get the facts without spending too a lot time searching the internet access and sifting out the noise to discover the answers to their questions. I usually get so frustrated with so numerous in the final results inside the major SE’s due to the fact they normally seem to mostly be filled with filler content that often isn’t extremely sensible. If you don’t mind I’m going to add this post and your web page to my delicious favorites so I can share it with my family. I appear forward to approaching back to read your future posts as well.

  6. Awesome post! I’ve been trying to come up with a good internet business idea for a while. Instead, I have come up with a great non-internet business idea, which kind of sucks in a way because this idea requires a lot of money, as opposed to a full internet-based business that might not require that much to get it started. I’m not giving up though. I recently started a blog where I plan to document my steps for starting my company. I figured it would keep me motivated and force me to keep at it. I also hope it will motivate the readers to keep trying to accomplish their goals. By the way, I love your site. I’ll be adding it to my list of interesting blogs.
