Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- Last week, a group of state representatives introduced a bill that would restrict the rights of law-abiding citizens to carry a concealed firearm for self-defense.
House Bill 200 , introduced by Representatives David Northrup (R-50), David Blevins (R-25), Samuel Krone (R-24), and Lloyd Larsen (R- 54), would prohibit citizens from carrying a concealed firearm “into any meeting of a governmental entity.”
This restriction is so broad and vague that it could be interpreted to include anywhere elected or appointed officials meet, even in taxpayer-funded public spaces.
Although SB 200 has yet to be assigned to a committee for further consideration, please let your state representative know that you oppose any more restrictions on your legal Right to Carry.
Your NRA-ILA will continue to update you as more details become available.
