Victory in North Carolina
This week the North Carolina Senate passed the amended HB 562 bill with no changes. Congratulations to all of those organizations who worked tirelessly to save the background checks that have been in place in North Carolina for all hand gun sales. A special word of thanks to Moms Demand Action and Moms Rising for all of their efforts to insure safety for North Carolinians. This success demonstrates the power of speaking up by the majority to provide good common sense gun laws.
Now we need a national law that makes this type of realistic legislation apply to all states. Call and write your Congressman or woman to support gun violence prevention legislation. At the very least background checks by all sellers of handguns whether it be a licensed dealer, a gun fair or on the internet should be required.
