North Carolina House Votes to Override Governor’s Veto of SB 41

Today, pursuant to House rules and in concordance with the printed calendar distributed to members Tuesday evening, the North Carolina House passed a procedural motion to suspend debate on the veto override of SB 41, Guarantee 2nd Amendment Freedom and Protections.

In a vote of 71-46, the House voted to override Governor Cooper’s veto. SB 41 will now become law.

NC House Speaker Tim Moore said, “This legislation preserves the Second Amendment rights of North Carolinians by repealing the outdated pistol permit system. It also allows all churches and other place of religious worship to protect their parishioners and launches a statewide firearm safe storage awareness initiative.”

He continued, “These have been long-standing goals of Second Amendment advocates in our state, and we have finally brought this legislation over the finish line.”
