If passed, the Gun Safety Act, or House Bill 723, would change current “stand your ground” laws in North Carolina.
N.C. Rep. Verla Insko, D-Orange, and Rep. Pricey Harrison, D-Guilford, introduced the bill April 10 to the N.C. House of Representatives.
“We have too many horrific, often accidental, gun deaths, and I believe in common sense gun laws that would help control some of that,” Insko said.
Insko said she signed the bill because of N.C. House Bill 588 — which she believes makes guns and ammunition more available to citizens in North Carolina.
