Defeating harmful legislation backed by the gun lobby

Giffords has been working to oppose legislation backed by the gun lobby that would allow any eligible person to purchase a firearm and carry both open and concealed handguns in public without a permit. In June 2017, Giffords released a new public opinion survey of North Carolina voters, which found that 82% of North Carolinians support the existing permitting system that helps keep loaded, concealed guns out of dangerous hands. Giffords also released a new 30-second digital ad urging North Carolinians to contact their legislators in opposition to HB 746. Watch the full ad here. This builds on similar efforts that Giffords began in 2015 when the gun lobby advanced efforts to repeal the permit-to-purchase requirement for handguns in North Carolina. This important law, which effectively acts as a background check for all handgun sales, was successfully defeated after Giffords ran a television and digital advertising campaign.
