Do You Still Need a NC Concealed Carry Handgun Permit? YES!
Many believe that North Carolina House Bill 746 (Short title; Omnibus Gun Changes) has passed and is now law. This is NOT the case! HB746 passed three readings in the House and was referred to the Senate where it passed one reading and was referred to Committee On Rules and Operations of the Senate. This bill is not expected to be considered by the Senate this session; However, since it passed readings in both houses this session, it is available to be considered during the short session next year (2018).
These are some important points to consider:
Additionally, there is a Federal proposal, H.R.38 - Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017, currently Referred to the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations that will allow permits from any state to be valid in all states. A state permit will still be required.
