North Carolina: One Pro-Gun Bill Currently Stalled, While Another Receives a Hearing
There still has not been any action taken on Senate Bill 928, the Castle Doctrine Bill, in the House of Representatives. This bill was referred to three separate committees, the first being the House Judiciary I Committee. That committee is Chaired by anti-gun State Representative Deborah Ross (D-38), and she appears to be unwilling to set a date for a hearing. Please continue to contact Representative Ross and urge her to allow this critical legislationâwhich received overwhelming, bi-partisan support in the Senateâto be heard. Please call Representative Ross at 919-733-5773 or e-mail her at Deborah.Ross@ncleg.net. Also, please call or email your State Representative and ask them to urge House leadership to bring SB 928 up for consideration. You can call your Representative at 919-733-7928.
