    House Bill 976 - Responses are needed NOW!

    HB 976 - Gun Safety Act

    Record Brief;
    AN ACT TO REPEAL THE "STAND YOUR GROUND LAWS" AND CODIFY THE COMMON LAW REGARDING THE USE OF FORCE AGAINST AN INTRUDER; TO
    REPEAL THE LAW ALLOWING RECIPROCITY FOR CONCEALED HANDGUN PERMITS; TO STRENGTHEN THE LAW REGARDING SAFE STORAGE OF
    FIREARMS BY REQUIRING A PERSON WHO POSSESSES A FIREARM AND LIVES WITH EITHER A MINOR OR ANOTHER PERSON WHO CAN NOT LEGALLY OWN
    A FIREARM TO SAFELY STORE THE FIREARM IN A STORAGE DEPOSITORY OR USE A SAFETY LOCK FOR THE FIREARM WHEN NOT IN POSSESSION OR
    IMMEDIATE CONTROL OF THE FIREARM; TO REQUIRE THE REPORTING OF LOST AND STOLEN GUNS; TO REQUIRE THE SHERIFF TO REPORT THE
    DENIAL, REVOCATION, OR FAILURE TO RENEW A CONCEALED HANDGUN PERMIT OR THE DENIAL OF A PISTOL PERMIT TO THE NATIONAL INSTANT
    CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK SYSTEM; TO REQUIRE UNIVERSAL15 BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR THE PRIVATE TRANSFER OF FIREARMS IN

    TO LIMIT THE SIZE OF AMMUNITION MAGAZINES; AND TO DIRECT THE STATE TREASURER TO DIVEST THE PENSION FUND OF GUN STOCKS.
    Besides the fact that every one of the sponsers and co-sponsers are Democrats they need know that NC will not put up with this crap. OC, CC, just plain old gun owner is effected by this silly bill.

    And lets not forget they are going for the fence, making it Felony to violate some of these.

    You may not like guns, and choose not to own one. That is your right. You might not believe in God. That is your choice. However, if someone breaks into your home the first two things you're going to do are: 1) Call someone with a gun. 2) Pray they get there in time. - Unknown

    Looks like Obama was prepared for his spanking, I would imagine identical bills are being filed in other states. Hopefully most of our GA have more sense then to try to pass this crap.

    DOA

    This is the group that got Castle Doctrine passed for the most part. I don't think they will think much of this bill.

    A GRNC board member on another forum said this is just a watered down version of some of the other BS they have been trying to pass for years...and is basically DOA.

    Not that we shouldnt be vigilant, but I see very little chance of this going anywhere.
