NC House and Senate Vote to Overturn Cooper’s Veto on Senate Bill 41

Yesterday, following veto override votes in the North Carolina Senate and House of Representatives, Senate Bill 41 became law. This is the first successful override of Cooper’s veto since 2018. Senate Bill 41 repeals the pistol purchase permit, allows people who are legally registered to carry a concealed handgun to do so on the property of a church or place of religious worship that is also the site of a private school, and launches a statewide firearm safe storage awareness initiative. Effective immediately, pistol purchase permits will no longer be issued by any sheriff in North Carolina. Photo credit: Garret Sitz, Unsplash
