TO PROVIDE THAT ANY DISTRICT ATTORNEY, ASSISTANT DISTRICT ATTORNEY, OR INVESTIGATOR EMPLOYED BY THE OFFICE OF A DISTRICT ATTORNEY WHO EITHER HAS A CONCEALED HANDGUN PERMIT THAT IS VALID IN NORTH CAROLINA OR WHO HAS BASIC LAW ENFORCEMENT TRAINING CERTIFICATION IN NORTH CAROLINA IS EXEMPT FROM THE GENERAL PROHIBITION AGAINST CARRYING A CONCEALED WEAPON AND FROM THE PROHIBITIONS AGAINST CARRYING A WEAPON ON CERTAIN PREMISES OR IN CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES.
Senate committee substitute makes the following changes to 1st edition. Amends GS 14-269 to limit the exemption to the prohibition on carrying a concealed weapon to those district attorneys, assistant district attorneys, and investigators employed by a district attorney’s office who have a concealed handgun permit (deletes provision extending the exemption to those that are certified as having completed a basic law enforcement training course), and prohibits these exempted individuals from carrying a concealed weapon in a courtroom. Requires the district attorney, assistant district attorney, or investigator to secure the weapon in a locked compartment when the individual is not carrying the weapon. Makes technical changes.
