Rep. Speciale Sponsors Bill with Sweeping Pro-Gun Laws

Michael Speciale (District 3) is one of the sponsors of House Bill 562, the "Second Amendment Affirmation Act." The Bill has many provisions that have proven to be highly controversial for gun safety advocates:

Doctors or psychiatrists may not ask patients in writing if they own or have access to guns.

Schools would be required to allow gun owners with concealed weapons permits to bring their guns onto school property as long as they leave the gun locked in the vehicle.

The list of misdeamor crimes would be shortened for which a person may be turned down for a concealed carry permit and limit those bans to 3 years.

District attorneys and assistant DAs will be permitted to carry concealed weapons in the courtroom.

A summary of HB 562 may be read at the North Carolina Legislative Web Site.

This 30-second public service announcement was paid for by the Everytown Gun Safety Action Fund.
