Well, there are some parts of the state that continuously elect reps who I would not want as my rep. Thankfully, I don't live in those areas, and generally the ideas held by those reps are in the minority, which means the new laws that have been passed in regard to the CHL laws have been positive.

My head hurts when listening to the ignorant antis come on with their ignorant arguments.
Can you tell us the outcome?
The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.
I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

Yes, please keep us updated. We should all be concerned about issues that will negatively impact our freedoms, even those that seem far away from us and affect a relative few.

I'll admit I was bored this morning and watched the complete video of the proceedings. While I don't agree with the views of Rep. Letson, or Foley, I will say they appeared to have at least looked at and read the bill, and at least addressed what it said. Rep. Hagan on the other hand is a rabid anti. I'd be willing to bet he didn't even read the bill. It had the word gun in it, so it has to be bad. He's the type of individual, that if his life were being threatened, and a concealed carrier saved him, would find some way to twist it and blame the conceal carrier.
For those who didn't watch it all the way, the bill passed. Not sure if it was/will be signed into law, but there were not enough votes to override a veto of it.
Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

The bill still has to pass the Senate, currently on summer recess. Then, because many of the senators need to campaign this Fall for reelection, almost no sessions are scheduled. If the bill does not pass the Senate prior to 12/31, it is dead and the process has to start all over again. Passage is slim due to the limited number of sessions.

If you have never contacted your state representative or state senator to express support for pro-gun bills, then you are part of the problem.
