S264 – Repeal 1935 Durham Co. Firearm Act

Title: Repeal 1935 Durham Co. Firearm Act

Primary Sponsors: Mike Woodard

Second Edition Text:  


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  Chapter 157, Public‑Local Laws of 1935, is repealed.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
