AN ACT TO AUTHORIZE THE ISSUANCE OF A LIFETIME CONCEALED HANDGUN PERMIT.
Amends GS 14-415.11 to make concealed carry permits valid until revoked or suspended, rather than for a period of five years from the date of issuance under current law. Requires permittees to notify the sheriff of the county where the person resides within 30 days of any address change (previously required notification of the issuing sheriff). Makes conforming changes to eliminate references to permit expiration in GS 14-415.11, GS 14-415.18, and GS 14-415.19, and conforming repeals of GS 14-415.16 and GS 14-416.16A.
Enacts GS 14-415.17(d) to require sheriffs to provide permittee address changes to the State Bureau of Investigation for inclusion in the statewide list of permittees.
Adds to the grounds for permit revocation set out in GS 14-415.17 to include that the person is no longer a State resident.
Allows for renewal of permits issued prior to December 1, 2021, and expiring on or after that date, pursuant to existing provisions.
Applies to all permits issued or renewed on or after December 1, 2021.
