Raleigh, NC — Gun rights supporters in North Carolina have just won a major legislative victory as Senate Bill 41 – which includes repeals of both the church carry loophole and pistol purchase permit – passed in the NC House Wednesday by a veto-proof majority. The bill, already passed by the Senate, now goes to anti-gun Governor Roy Cooper, who is expected to veto the bill within the 10 days allotted.
“The passage of Senate Bill 41 is a great victory for the Second Amendment. GOA is incredibly grateful to leadership in the General Assembly, to many of the rank-and-file members who were ‘main movers’ of the legislation, and also to the courageous House Democrats who voted to overturn this old racist statute,” said Andy Stevens, GOA’s NC State Director. “We also can’t emphasize enough the critical impact our grassroots members and supporters had in making this happen, as their emails and phone calls made this victory inevitable. With an absolute supermajority in the Senate and a bipartisan supermajority in the House, we are confident that we will override the veto expected from anti-freedom Governor Roy Cooper.”
