Repeal of Pistol Purchase Permit Requirements and Church Carry Loophole Closed: A Victory for Gun Owners in North Carolina

Today marks a significant milestone for gun owners in North Carolina as the state has repealed the longstanding Pistol Purchase Permit requirements that have been in place for over a century. In addition to this groundbreaking change, legislators have also closed the controversial "church carry" loophole, allowing law-abiding citizens to protect themselves in places of worship that have private schools.

Some may raise concerns about the idea of firearms being present in churches, questioning its prudence. However, proponents argue that it is better to possess a gun and not need it, than to find oneself in a precarious situation without any means of defense. Furthermore, the repeal effectively cuts through bureaucratic red tape, granting members of the faith the ability to safeguard themselves.

Gun Owners of America (GOA), a staunch advocate for gun rights, has been tirelessly campaigning for these changes, and their efforts have finally paid off. Erich Pratt, the Senior Vice President of GOA, expresses his satisfaction, stating, "Our organization is dedicated to both preserving and restoring Americans' Second Amendment rights, and the repeal of these laws cuts red tape, empowers members of the faith to defend themselves, and ends a discriminatory blot from the state's history."

The celebration extends beyond the walls of GOA. Jordan Stein, GOA's Southeast Region Director, rejoices in the repeal, emphasizing its significance. Stein asserts, "With this repeal, citizens of our state will no longer have to seek permission from local law enforcement in advance of purchasing a handgun to exercise their Second Amendment rights, and just as importantly, houses of worship will no longer remain soft targets just because they operate a school on their premises."

This is undoubtedly a momentous occasion for gun owners in North Carolina. Thanks to the concerted efforts of Gun Owners of America, the state has taken a substantial stride forward in safeguarding Second Amendment rights. Now, citizens can find solace in the fact that they possess the means to protect themselves and their loved ones within the confines of their places of worship. Yeehaw!
