On my list of Laws of NC that need to change, I have listed 14 laws that I think are in desperate need of repeal. Well today, Bev Perdue has signed the bill that repeals the first of those 14 laws.
We are pleased to announce that Senate Bill 406 was signed into law by Governor Bev Perdue on April 28. This bill, which repeals the requirement that one obtain a purchase permit before acquiring a crossbow, sailed out of the state Senate in March by a unanimous vote and was passed in the state House of Representatives on April 19 by a 69 to 48 vote. S 406 was introduced by state Senators Andrew C. Brock (R-34), Don East (R-30) and Buck Newton (R-11).
It’s a small start, but a great first step in making North Carolina a free state again.
