H937, which includes Restaurant Carry, and a limited form of University carry, passed the Third Reading in the NC House today.
As expected, the state House on Tuesday passed a bill that would allow people with permits to carry concealed weapons to bring their firearms into bars, restaurants that serve alcohol, college campuses and parks.
The Dems attempt to hang amendments all over this bill rejected, and boy are they mad.
Republicans used a legislative maneuver to table proposed amendments 12 times (once for a Republican amendment). Before Tuesday’s session, Democratic lawmakers called a news conference to complain about the tactic limiting the debate.
I watched the second half of the debate today, via live streaming on WRAL. The best part was at the end, the Dems were asking to “call the question” and actually vote so they could get it over with. They knew they were never going to stop it, so they just wanted it to be over.
And if I can find video of the news conference of the Dems whining about how the evil Republicans stifled their debate, I’ll post it. It ought to be worth a few laughs in a “Hippy Tears Are Sweet” sort of way.
