Permission Not Required: North Carolina House Passes “Constitutional Carry” Bill

RALEIGH, N.C. (June 12, 2017) – Last week, the North Carolina House passed a “Constitutional Carry” bill that would make it legal for most North Carolinians to carry a firearm without a license, and foster an environment hostile to federal gun control.

A coalition of four Republican representatives introduced House Bill 746 (H746) in April. Under the proposed law, any person who is a citizen of the United States and at least 18 years old would be able to legally carry a handgun, openly or concealed, without a concealed handgun permit in North Carolina unless provided otherwise by State law or by 18 U.S.C. § 922 or any other federal law.

The legislation does prohibit carrying a concealed handgun in certain places, including the state capitol, courthouses, and certain other areas. It also establishes and clarifies other limits on carrying firearms in the state.
