Fairfax, VA -( Your NRA has learned that House Leadership may be considering removing language from pro-gun House Bill 562 that would eliminate North Carolina’s outdated pistol purchase permit.

This provision would replace the permit with the FBI’s Instant Criminal Background Check System currently used in a majority of states.

Please call House Speaker Tim Moore immediately at 919-733-3451 and urge him to retain this important provision! Ask Speaker Moore to support NRA’s position on H 562, especially when it comes to using the FBI’s instant background check system instead of the old pistol purchase permit system.

As previously reported, anti-gun advocates have been running ads that seem intended to mislead North Carolinians into believing H 562 would eliminate all background checks on handgun purchases. H 562 would simply replace a nearly 100-year-old law that allows sheriffs to use arbitrary, personal discretion when determining who may lawfully purchase a handgun through NICS.

It is critical you continue to contact your state Representative and urge her or him to support the Second Amendment and support NRA’s efforts to pass H 562, the Second Amendment Affirmation Act.

Let your representative know that Michael Bloomberg and his gun-ban supporters do NOT speak for you, and you support NRA’s position to replace the flawed Pistol Purchase Permit system with the far more efficient NICS background check system used by the majority of other states.
