HB 111 in the North Carolina House would enable concealed handgun permit holders to protect themselves in restaurants, and in both municipal and state parks. House members need to hear from you ASAP: Even if you have already contacted them, do so again. There are still a few problems getting the Republican caucus to hang together.
Please mention these three things:
1. Vote for final passage of HB 111;
2. Vote for an amendment to be offered which will remove the “Ross Amendment” which Deborah Ross used to try to get the NC Restaurant & Lodging Association to oppose the bill (she failed); and
3. Oppose any and all weakening amendments made to the bill, including a plan reportedly afoot to carve out a “gun free” zone at any sporting event (e.g. Little League games) held within public parks.
