An article on MSNBC this morning reports North Carolina’s legislature passing a bill that “encourages guns for battered spouses.”(House Bill 1311). GS 14-415.15(b) is on the issuance of handgun permits.
North Carolina’s General Statutes on domestic violence are contained in Chapter 50B, to which this bill is directly related. A second bill, pending, would “clarify & enhance” specifically the relief segments of those statutes. (SB 1029)
Both bills would become effective October 1, 2005
