    NC Restaurant and park carry bill introduced

    Maybe I should just start a "new in NC thread." It's being introduced tomorrow. This is the house bill. Gonna see if there is a companion for the senate.

    A BILL TO BE ENTITLED AN ACT TO ALLOW PERSONS WITH CONCEALED HANDGUN PERMITS TO
    PROTECT THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILIES IN RESTAURANTS AND TO ALLOW A CONCEALED HANDGUN PERMITEE TO CARRY A HANDGUN IN A PARK.
    The General Assembly of North Carolina enacts: SECTION 1. G.S. 14-269.3(b) is amended by adding a new subdivision to read:
    GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF NORTH CAROLINA SESSION 2011
    HD HOUSE DRH30075-LH-73 (2/3)
    Short Title:
    Sponsors:
    Referred to:
    Handgun Permit Valid in Parks & Restaurants. (Public)
    Representative Hilton.
    "(5)
    A person on the premises of an establishment that is a restaurant under G.S. 18B-1000(2) or G.S. 18B-1000(6), provided the person has a valid concealed handgun permit under Article 54B of Chapter 14 of the General Statutes."
    SECTION 2. G.S. 14-415.23 reads as rewritten: " 14-415.23. Statewide uniformity.
    It is the intent of the General Assembly to prescribe a uniform system for the regulation of legally carrying a concealed handgun. To insure uniformity, no political subdivisions, boards, or agencies of the State nor any county, city, municipality, municipal corporation, town, township, village, nor any department or agency thereof, may enact ordinances, rules, or regulations concerning legally carrying a concealed handgun. A unit of local government may adopt an ordinance to permit the posting of a prohibition against carrying a concealed handgun, in accordance with G.S.14-415.11(c), on local government buildings, their appurtenant premises, and parks.buildings and their appurtenant premises."

    Outstanding! Now...if we can get this passed, the next step is to get rid of the State of Emergency restriction. Will email my reps tonight. Thanks for the "heads-up" Chief!

    We definitely have a whirlwind of pro-gun bills going down the pike here, and for the first time in many moons they have a really good chance of becoming law.

    +1 on the state of emergency restriction.

    I look forward to this one. Restaurants during my yearly vacation in NC are one of the few sticking points I still have to overcome.

    This is a great move in the right direction. Now, assuming passage, when I visit my daughter it will be safer to go out and enjoy a nice meal in the restaurant of our choice. She tends to find really good restaurants in some of the "more unsavory" areas.

    Just to echo the above, when my wife and I visit NC as tourists, it is more than a bit inconvenient to not be able to visit even a Red Lobster type restaurant.

    Emailed all 4 of my elected officals, so far only one has emailed back. His reply;

    Dear Mr. XXXX,
    Thank you for your letter of concern about House Bills 63 and 111. Representative Haire stands by the 2nd Amendment and a citizen’s right to bear arms. House Bill 111 would allow persons with concealed carry licenses to carry a concealed handgun in restaurants and parks. This legislation is very concerning because Rep. Haire does support the 2nd amendment but carrying firearms in restaurants and parks can lead to a dangerous precedent. Again, thank you for you letter and have a good day.

    Sincerely,
    Nick Stewart
    Office of Representative Phil Haire
    So everyone in his district be sure to email and let them know that next election he will be voted out of office.

    That email is just astounding. Wonder how he feels about the law that would allow HIM to carry in a restaurant, if he has a CCP? Obviously he supports the "keep" but not the "bear" in the 2A.

    Haire does support the 2nd amendment but carrying firearms in restaurants and parks can lead to a dangerous precedent.

    What precedent might that be? I can eat and exercise while still being able to defend myself? You cant 'stand by the second amendment' and not allow people to fully exercise it......

    Dangerous precedent? Like the dangerous precedent they allow in a whole bunch of other states? That dangerous precedent?
