    Pro-Gun Bills Go To House Judiciary I Committee

    Two pro-gun bills have found their way to the House Judiciary I
    Committee. HB 830, "Concealed Handgun Permit Valid in Parks," is
    designed to finally allow you the right to self-protection within
    parks. It would amend existing law by striking public parks as an
    area that may be posted against legally permitted concealed carry.

    HB 831, "Personal Protection in Restaurants," would allow personal
    protection with a concealed handgun provided that the person has a
    valid concealed handgun permit. Both of these measures are sorely
    needed to close "anti-protection loopholes" inserted in the current
    statutes by the anti-self-defense lobby when they were originally
    passed.

    Castle Doctrine Introduced in NC Senate

    Another piece of much needed personal safety legislation has been
    introduced in the NC Senate by Senator Andrew Brock (R-GRNC ****). SB
    1251 once again attempts to bring about the "Castle Doctrine" here in
    North Carolina. This eagerly anticipated concept is already
    protecting law abiding citizens in several states including Florida
    from frivolous prosecution and civil liability from the act of
    defending one's life and home.

    Immediate Action Required:

    * Contact members of the House Judiciary I Committee (contact info
    follows). Give them this message.

    Dear Representative:

    HB 830 & HB 831 will protect the law-abiding voters of North Carolina
    by allowing them the ability to protect themselves in restaurants and
    public parks. It is vitally important that these anti-protection
    loopholes be closed.

    I strongly urge you to throw all of your support behind these two
    bills. They should receive the full confidence of your committee and
    be sent to the floor for passage into law. I will be monitoring their
    progress through Grass Roots North Carolina.

    Sincerely,

    A concerned North Carolina voter.

    Still in committee? When does NC's session close? Would the bills have been killed in committee?

    Does that mean the restaurant ban is off the table?
