options carry handgun N.C. legislature

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — More people in North Carolina could carry their concealed weapons while working and while attending church in a measure given final legislative approval.

The House and Senate voted Thursday for the compromise bill, sending it to Gov. Roy Cooper’s desk.

The bill allows people with concealed permits to carry their handgun at a religious place of worship that is also the location of a private school.

A permit holder could only carry the gun outside the school’s operating hours. Two more categories of workers also would be allowed to wear their concealed weapons in some situations.
