NCRPA Gunsmith Resolution 8-30-2016

RESOLVED: The North Carolina Rifle and Pistol Association (NCRPA) supports our North Carolina gunsmiths’ rights to engage in traditional machining activities on legal, existing firearms neither intended nor destined for export. The NCRPA thus opposes recent U.S. State Department efforts to regulate our gunsmiths as arms export manufacturers, opposes requiring them to register with the U.S. State Department’s Directorate of Defense Trade Controls, and opposes requiring them to pay an annual $2,250 federal fee.

What can we — the NCRPA — do for you?

We can put you in touch and keep you in touch — face to face, voice to voice, email to email — with gun owners, competitive shooters, shooting clubs, gun shops, firearms trainers, and other advocates for the free and dutiful exercise of 2nd Amendment rights enumerated in both the U.S. Constitution and the Constitution of the State of North Carolina.

Your communication can begin with a feedback request, look up and to the left for the FEEDBACK FORM.

When you become an NCRPA member, you’ll get our newsletter STATESHOTS, still a print publication.

Your access to the website is always free.

Who Are We?

The North Carolina Rifle & Pistol Association was established in 1938 as the sole state-wide organization affiliated with the National Rifle Association (“NRA-affiliated State Association”). The Association is a formally registered non-profit civic organization, under both North Carolina and Federal Law. Due to our political activity as a civic organization, donations to NCRPA are not tax-deductible. NCRPA is run entirely by volunteers.
