Constitutional Carry Bill Takes Shape In North Carolina


RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA — A new constitutional carry bill has been filed in the state of North Carolina, according to reports.

The bill, known as the Constitutional Carry Act, would eliminate the need for a permit to carry a firearm concealed in the state of North Carolina, and would also permit those as young as 18 to carry concealed handguns, according to WRAL. It was filed Thursday.

Currently, in North Carolina there is a permitting process that includes class time, a written test, and a marksmanship test — and this writer can tell you the permitting process can take significant time.

This isn’t the first time constitutional carry has been proposed in North Carolina — obviously, it has yet to succeed.

Governor Roy Cooper is a Democrat with a history of anti-gun sentiment. In order for this to pass, it will likely need to have sufficient legislative popularity to pass a veto override.
