Sensible and Balanced Gun Legislation In N.C.Topics: National News, Political News and commentaries
Excerpts of Jodi Leese Glusco's report at WRAL.com (emphasis added):
[...] Gov. Pat McCrory signed 18 bills Monday, including two of the more controversial of the recently ended legislative session -- those dealing with gun rights and abortion clinics.This is what I call common sensible and balanced gun legislation - protecting the rights of responsible gun owners and keeping guns away from criminals, gun violators (but I repeat myself) and the mentally disturbed. Too bad that common sense and reason is something that is outside the realm of understanding among liberal politicians.
[...] The gun rights law, expands the places where those with legal permits can carry a concealed firearm to include bars and restaurants that serve alcohol, although they are not supposed to consume alcohol. It also allows permit holders to keep firearms locked in their car when parked on college or public school campuses.
The measure seals gun purchase and permit records, so that lists compiled by law by weapons dealers and county sheriffs -- which include names, addresses and other identifying information -- are no longer public record.
The law also strengthens penalties for those who violate firearms laws and will increase the amount of information, such as mental health problems, in the state's background check system.
McCrory characterized the law as a balance of the rights of gun and property owners.
