North Carolina Gun Laws Changing
A new bill in North Carolina will give law abiding gun owners more rights and protection. Governor Perdue signed into law House Bill 650, which will become valid December 1st. Gun owners who use their guns for protection against intruders at home, in their car, at work, will be safe from criminal or civil charges. The bill also allows concealed carry at the state parks.The bill makes it a state felony offense to give false information to a licensed arms dealer, previously it was only federal, now one would have to face federal and state felony offenses.
Of course with all politics there are supporters and non-supporters. Supporters acknowledge that this is for law abiding citizens, criminals don't follow the law anyway.
Since many people use the state parks, non-supporters do not like that there will be firearms in the parks. Non-supporters also believe that due to the abundance of wildlife, people would suddenly and randomly start shooting deer, making it unsafe for others to enjoy the park. Gun advocates say this is highly unlikely to happen. From WWAYTV3.com.
