The Rundown: NC H562

Governor Pat McCrory signed NC H562 into law a couple days ago, so Ben and I decided to go through the bill section by section to give you a rundown of what is still in it after all of the runaround through the hullabaloo that happened with it in the NC House. It’s still a good bill, but I want to make one thing clear here in the shownotes, as well as in the episode: The NC Pistol Purchase Permit is not going away, there were a couple changes to it, but it’s still required. Also, we’re not lawyers. I’m a college dropout, and Ben plays with computers or something for a living, so there’s a good chance we messed something up. The idea here is to give you a general idea of what’s in the bill so you can then go find the relevant sections of it, and have a read of it yourself.

The ratified version of the bill that was signed by the Governor can be found here.

The News

Chucky Schumer and Amy Schumer held a press conference this week proposing that something be done to stop mass shootings. The internet exploded with hate and vitriol after they proposed that a bill be written to do this:

“The proposed legislation, which the two presented at a news conference Monday, would reward states that submit information to the background-check system and penalize states that don’t comply.”

But then, a few days later, John Cornyn in the US Senate introduced a NRA backed bill that would do this, and… crickets:

“The new legislation from Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn tries to patch some holes in the current national background checks system by encouraging states, through the promise of federal funding, to send more information on mental-health records to the national database.”

On the surface at least, it sounds like the bills do roughly the same thing.

The Blue Bullets

So I ordered 3600 of these last week, and received a 65lb box of lead from The Blue Bullets in the mail (Actually the post office called and asked if I could pick it up, because my mail carrier couldn’t lift the box. No problem). I’ve been loading them like a madman, to try and get a good stockpile of ammo built up again. I like The Blue Bullets, I’ve been shooting them since before they were a sponsor, and I think they’re great. Check out a sample pack if you haven’t tried them, and save a little more with the code “triangle” at checkout.

  1. I’m in agreement with almost everything discussed. The one issue I have is the incentivizing of NICS reporting. I thought that was already required by law. If so, it seems like another one of these cases where we should enforce the laws already in place rather than trying to add more. Also, where is the government going to get this money? The government doesn’t have a way of generating revenue, they only take it in the form of taxation. So that means the tax payers would be paying for these incentives. Something just doesn’t sit right with me on that issue after an initial glance. It’s definitely something I want to look into a little deeper. Thanks for a great show and quality recap/analysis of the new law.

  2. As Eminem said, “Apparently you ain’t parents.”

    I’m referring to your implication that the improvements related to carry in a vehicle on school campuses aren’t that much of an improvement. Obviously the improvement should have included concealed carry within the schools, but nevertheless the improvement is marked.

    It is much safer for ALL (and much more convenient for the gun carrier) to leave the pistol securely holstered on the belt than to be pulling the pistol and putting it in the glove compartment, or whatever other compartment you chose, as you approached the school. Then reholstering as you left the school. It forced a stupid amount of administrative handling each time you dropped the munchkins or picked them up. On the move or at the roadside, it was a pain in the ass.

    Plus, not everyone wants the munchkins to know they are carrying!

    Now at least if you have to go into the school you can safely park in a vacant area of the school lot, discreetly disarm and rearm without having to drive off property.

    Unfortunately it’s a day late and a dollar short for me. My munchkin is a new driver, God save you all!
