Quick update to our alert that we sent out earlier today. The Rules
Committee meeting was postponed until tomorrow at 2:30pm. You still
have time to call and email to make sure that our concealed carry
weapons permitting system is not weakened and EMS workers cannot carry
concealed while on the job.?
Late yesterday, some members of the
NC General Assembly gutted an unrelated bill and put in language that
Weaken the concealed
carry weapons permitting system by making it easier for someone to
renew their permit without repeating a firearms safety and training
course. The permit is good for 5 years. A lot can change in five
years. Many people already feel that the training is inadequate. We
need to strengthen our permitting system and not weaken
- Exempt emergency medical services personnel from the general
prohibition against concealed weapons if they meet certain criteria.
We do not need more people with even less training than law
enforcement carrying deadly weapons.?
We need you to contact key
representatives below now and urge them to vote against these
dangerous provisions. These representatives are all Republicans who
voted against the permitless carry bill in 2017.
The message is simple: I urge Representative _____ to work
to remove provisions of the PCS (proposed committee substitute) for
S156 that would weaken our concealed carry weapons permitting system
and allow EMS personnel to carry concealed while on the
