A BILL TO BE ENTITLED AN ACT AMENDING THE PROCESS FOR INDIVIDUALS TO REMOVE FIREARM DISABILITIES AFTER RESTORATION TO COMPETENCY.
Amends GS 122C-54(d1)(6) to eliminate a requirement that a finding that an individual lacks capacity due to a condition or disease be reported to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).
Amends GS 122C-54.1 concerning the restoration process for the removal of specified disabilities, providing that the process applies to all petitions for remaining a determination or finding described in GS 122C-54(d1)(1) -(5). Provides new language that specifies that for relief from an adjudication of incompetence as described in GS 122C-54(d1)(6), an individual must file a petition for restoration to competency as provided in GS 35A-1130. Provides that if competency is restored the individual can submit a written request to the clerk who exercised jurisdiction in the incompetency proceeding to update the individual's record in the NICS. After verification, the clerk is required to update the record in NICS.
Effective October 1, 2015.
