Abstract:
In conjunction with New York Police Department, Sanford police busted an illegal gun-running enterprise between the states. The trend of illegal firearms being trafficked to New York will likely increase due to Republican-backed legislation House Bill 518, which states that guns manufactured in the state are not subject to Federal regulations. Cary police captured the ring-leader Walter Walker on a traffic violation and Sanford Police Sergeant Ray Bullard captured Chris Hill, the other leader, fleeing from his Sanford residence.

Abstract:
The Republican majority in the NC General Assembly passed a new gun law, effective October 1, 2013, which limits \"a municipality's ability to prohibit people with valid conceal-carry permits from bringing handguns to public places, including parks and greenways.\" In Chapel Hill a draft ordinance, which would open up seventeen public spaces, including playgrounds, to permit holders, was introduced. The NC Chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense has asked the Chapel Hill Town Council to opt out of changes that would align the town code with the new state law. The Raleigh-based activist group, Grass Roots NC, has threatened to sue the town of it opts out.

Abstract:
A new state law, House Bill 937, a 17-page comprehensive firearms measure, allows conceal-carry permit holders to bring guns into restaurants and bars. The law also allows restaurant and bar owners to opt out of the measure if a gun banning sign is prominently displayed. Proponents of the gun law, like Grass Roots North Carolina, are organizing boycotts against these bars and restaurants. NCGunowners.com is using online bullying against the eateries, calling them \"target-rich\" and those who oppose the law \"fat bitches\" and \"aging arm flappers.\"

Abstract:
On June 9, Republicans proposed a change to the North Carolina constitution, called the Gun Rights Amendment. This would enable any U.S. citizen to carry a concealed weapon in the state without a license, permit, or safety course. North Carolina currently ranks twenty-first in the nation in gun deaths, but easy access to guns will mean even more gun deaths.

Abstract:
North Carolina is embracing its burgeoning gun business, while other states with historic ties to firearms manufacturing have gotten tougher on the industry.

Also, firearms makers are migrating south, improving economic development in the state.
