A BILL TO BE ENTITLED
AN ACT to provide that an adult at a school, community college, or university who has a concealed handgun permit may have a handgun on educational Property, provided the gun is in a closed container in the person’s locked motor vehicle or is in a locked container attached to the motor vehicle and is removed only for defensive purposes.
The General Assembly of North Carolina enacts:
SECTION 1. G.S. 14‑269.2(g) is amended by adding the following new subdivisions to read:
“(7) An adult person who has a valid concealed handgun permit issued in accordance with Article 54B of this Chapter or considered valid under G.S. 14‑415.24, provided that all of the criteria listed in this subdivision are met:
a. The weapon is a handgun.
b. The handgun is in a closed compartment or container within the person’s locked motor vehicle or in a locked container securely affixed to the person’s motor vehicle.
c. The person’s motor vehicle is located on the educational property.
(8) A handgun kept in a vehicle in accordance with subdivision (7) of this subsection that is removed from the locked motor vehicle or removed from the locked container affixed to the motor vehicle, provided the handgun is used solely for the purpose of defending the lives of the students, faculty employees, or other people against violent attack on the educational property.”
SECTION 2. This act becomes effective October 1, 2013.
My take: Perfect. This bill allows parents with Concealed Handgun Permits to pick up and drop off their children from school without running home and disarming first. There is no earthly reason that a CHP holder should be required to be unarmed in her own car when picking her child up from school.
My recommendation: SUPPORT
