In the past couple of weeks here in NC, we’ve seen several bills
flow into the state legislature that would make some positive
changes to our concealed carry (and other gun laws). The biggest of
which is HB562.
Among other things, HB562 would allow a little more leeway for
people bringing guns onto school grounds in their vehicles, add an
exception to an exception to allow concealed carry at the state
fair (which in our opinion, adds to the “Quagmire of Stupidity”
that we talked about back in Episode
103), adds a vehicle storage law that basically says that
employers cannot disallow people from having a gun in their locked
car, and would standardize signage requirements no guns signage.
The bill does a lot more than what I mentioned here, but these are
the parts we cover in this episode.
We also have a look at SB708, a bill that makes for an extra
special concealed carry permit in the state. I’m all for expanding
carry privileges, but I don’t think
this bill is really the way to do it. I outline some of my problems
with it here and here.
- Kansas becomes the 6th state
allowing Constitutional Carry. As mentioned in the episode, there
are some fantastic
quotes from the Governor in this article.
Taurus recalls the Curve pistol. Unfortunately for Taurus,
word of the recall hit social media before their press release
about it, and people were jumping all over the pistol before they
found out it’s only being recalled because a batch of them left the
factory without having the caliber engraved into the barrel. I had
the chance to shoot a Curve a few weeks ago, and it wasn’t as awful
as some people make it sound, so there’s that.
