Concealed weapon bill ready for NC House floor

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Some North Carolina lawmakers want to give concealed weapon permit holders more places to carry or store their pistols.

 

The House scheduled debate Monday on a Republican-backed measure that's endorsed by gun-rights groups but opposed strongly by university leaders.

 

Some provisions would allow concealed weapon permit-holders the ability to store a gun in a locked car on a University of North

 

Carolina or community college campus. Boosters say the weapons will serve as a crime deterrent. UNC President Tom Ross says the provision would only increase safety risks.

 

The proposal also would let permit holders arm themselves in a restaurant where alcohol is served unless the establishment expressly prohibits concealed weapons.

 

The bill also includes longer penalties for gun-related crimes.
