This makes no sense from a GRNC 4 star rated legislator. State Senator Stan Bingham, said legislator, who proposed this change, should have to answer that question. Call him and ask him. Email him and ask him. If you are local to him, knock on his door and ask him. Do it whether you are his constituent or not. We need an answer. This bill needs to die quickly. Don't call just Bingham. Call your own representatives and ask them to drive a stake through this bill's heart.

I caught wind of this at Sean's An NC Gun Blog. He has the text of the bill and his usual on point commentary.
