NC: ‘Gun rights’ constitutional amendment won’t get vote, House leader says

“The incident in Orlando does make the point of my proposed amendment to the N.C. Constitution very clearly,” he wrote on his Facebook page. “Especially in these times, our people need to be armed.”

A House leader said he doesn’t think legislators will take action on a controversial bill to end the state’s permitting requirements for people who want to carry a concealed weapon.

Rep. Larry Pittman, a Concord Republican, filed the “Gun Rights Amendment” last Thursday. It would ask voters in the November election if they support a constitutional ban on concealed weapon permit regulations.

The bill garnered more attention Monday in the wake of the Orlando nightclub shooting, and gun control supporters started a petition drive to oppose the measure. Several dozen people also
 gathered Monday night at the Legislative Building, calling on lawmakers to reject the proposal.
House Speaker Tim Moore referred the gun bill to the Rules Committee on Monday night. That committee’s chairman, Rep. David Lewis of Dunn, said he doesn’t expect to hold a hearing or vote on the bill this year because legislators are busy crafting a budget.

  1. All gun regulations and restrictions that infringe a right to carry when you wish how you wish wherever you wish and whatever weapon you wish is in fact Unconstitutional and unlawful....

    If they want to make gun laws restrictions and regulations they must either ratify the 2cd amendment or amend it, one or, but they cannot write laws that suspend a Constitutional right...
