A BILL TO BE ENTITLED
AN ACT to repeal a 1935 Durham county Local act concerning firearm registration.
The General Assembly of North Carolina enacts:
SECTION 1. Chapter 157, Public‑Local Laws of 1935, is repealed.
SECTION 2. This act is effective when it becomes law.
My take: This repeals the law that permits Durham to force residents to register firearms. This bill was originally filed as a “blank bill” and was suddenly changed yesterday to repeal the registry. It passed the Senate today and is off to the House. I expect swift passage as Republicans are unlikely to support retaining the firearm registry in Durham.
My recommendation: SUPPORT
