In case you were wondering why we must NEVER allow the Democrats to regain control of North Carolina's Legislature, we give you H723 - The "Gun Safety Act," sponsored by the usual anti-gun Democrats, Pricey Harrison, Verla Insko, Susan Fisher, Carla Cunningham, Cecil Brockman, Jean Farmer-Butterfield, and Elmer Floyd.
It's a Bloomberg anti-gun wish list:
Repeals Stand Your Ground/No Duty to Retreat
Repeals Castle Doctrine in vehicles and workplaces
Starkly limits Castle Doctrine in your home
Repeals Self Defense Immunity
Oddly appears to repeal the law against using claims of self defense when one has provoked the encounter or is committing, attempting to commit, or escaping after the commission of a felony.
Imposes strict "Safe Storage" laws making you criminally liable if a felon breaks into your house, steals your gun, and uses it in a crime.
Imposes criminal liability if you fail to report a stolen gun
Imposes a requirement for $100,000 liability insurance to own a firearm
Repeals NC's universal reciprocity law.
Bans the possession, sale, and transfer of magazines in handguns and rifles that hold more than 15 rounds for handguns and rifles, or 8 rounds for shotguns.
Requires the State to divest itself of all stocks and bonds in "firearms manufacturers"
Introduces "Gun Violence Restraining Orders" which will allow your "immediate family members" to seek a secret court hearing which will allow a judge to take away your right to possess a firearm
It is nothing short of a brazen attack not only on your Second Amendment rights, but also on your natural right to self defense. And what's worse is that we have every reason to believe that our new anti-gun Governor would sign this!
Since the Republicans control both the House and Senate, it is unlikely that such a bill will ever get to the Governor's desk, but is that all we elected pro-gun legislators, to block anti-gun bills? NO! We elected them to pass good bills like the following:
NC Constitutional Carry Act (H746)
Omnibus Gun Changes (H588)
Concealed Handgun Standardization Act (H438)
Despite holding a super majority in our House and Senate, we can never stop being vigilant of the shenanigans from Democrats looking to strip our basic right to bear arms. We must continue to fight even if the odds appear to be in our favor.
