A BILL TO BE ENTITLED

AN ACT To provide that denial of a license or permit to PURCHASE A PISTOL SHALL BE reported to the state bureau of investigation by entry into an appropriate computerized database that is accessible to sheriffs statewide.

The General Assembly of North Carolina enacts:

SECTION 1. Article 52A of Chapter 14 of the General Statutes is amended by adding a new section to read:

" 14‑404.1. Report denial of license or permit to SBI by entry into State computerized database.

(a) If a sheriff declines to issue a permit as provided by G.S. 14‑404(b), the sheriff shall notify the State Bureau of Investigation and provide all of the following information to the State Bureau of Investigation by entry into a State computerized database designated by the State Bureau of Investigation:

(1) A statement that the license or permit was denied in accordance with G.S. 14‑404(b).

(2) The date of the denial.

(3) The county in which the license or permit was denied.

(4) Sufficient information to identify the applicant.

Information entered into the database in compliance with this subsection shall be entered in such a manner that a notation of the denial will appear in any subsequent record check conducted in accordance with this Article.

(b) Any information entered into the database in accordance with subsection (a) of this section shall be automatically deleted from the database eight years from the date it was entered.

(c) If a person successfully appeals the denial of a permit as provided by G.S. 14‑404(b), then the person may provide the sheriff with an official copy of the court's determination and request in writing that the sheriff remove the notation regarding the denial of the person's application for a permit from the appropriate State computerized database. The sheriff shall notify the State Bureau of Investigation of any request made in compliance with this subsection within five business days of the receipt of the request. The State Bureau of Investigation shall remove the notation within five business days of its receipt of the request from the sheriff."

SECTION 2. By September 1, 2007, the State Bureau of Investigation shall have identified an appropriate State computerized database that is easily accessible and available to sheriffs statewide.

SECTION 3. With funds appropriated to the Department of Justice in the 2007‑2008 fiscal year, the State Bureau of Investigation shall begin to implement the provisions of this act, including identifying a State computerized database, developing necessary software, providing training on use of the database, and taking any other action necessary to ensure that the database is fully operational.

Well an NC sherifff can deny a permit for ANY reason.

So I am opposed to this bill whether others are or not.

If there were clear reasons for a sheriff to deny a permit, this bill would not be a problem.

I thought they had to consider the yes/no questions and deny or provide the permit on those parameters. I guess I was wrong about that.

If that were the case no one in Henderson County would be able to buy handguns. AFAIK, he normally sits on them till the 30th day.

I live across the line in Buncombe (where permits are much easier to obtain), so I cant really be sure.

Deciding that you are not of good moral character.

That phrase gives the sheriff broad latitude in deciding who gets a permit
