SB 41 - Guarantee 2nd Amendment Freedom and Protection

SB41:Guarantee 2nd Amendment Freedom and Protection

(Formerly SB40: Repeal Pistol Purchase Permit, rolled into a 2nd Amendment omnibus bill)

Repealing the pistol purchase permit will roll back the Jim Crow-era regulation that was put into place to limit gun ownership of black North Carolinians. Dubbed the “Klan’s favorite law,” the pistol purchase permit still disproportionately impacts blacks today. In Wake County, black applicants are three times more likely to have their permits denied than their white counterparts. The pistol purchase permit is an unnecessary burden that infringes on all North Carolinians Second Amendment rights. Federal law already requires background checks for all firearm purchases through licensed dealers. Repealing the pistol purchase permit would not change the legal standards for gun sellers to perform background checks. North Carolina should repeal this unjust law.

Civitas Action believes that all the provisions of SB41 promote commonsense gun legislation, defending the 2nd Amendment and that the vote for freedom is YES on SB41!
