NRA Letter to Congress -- Description of how NCIS checks operate now and how proposed "Universal Background Checks" would require registration of all lawfully held firearms. For full text: click here
Click here for text of NIJ report revealing the disconnect between gun restrictions and a reduction in crime.
Look for the twitter summary for Universal Background checks, which reads:
"Effectiveness depends on the ability to reduce straw purchasing, requiring gun registration, and an easy gun transfer process."
Statement from Chris W. Cox Regarding "Universal" Background Checks
False information has appeared Jan 25 that Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) is working on a bill with the NRA what would implement universal background checks.
PLEASE NOTE: The NRA does NOT support universal background checks and is not working with Manchin to implement this type of legislation. NRA opposes, and will continue to oppose, universal background checks and registration schemes.
Cox goes on to say, "We do believe that records of those who are prohibited by law from purchasing firearms (including those whose mental health history puts them in this category) ought to be included in the federal instant check system."

Your best bet to get your event posted is to click on the Feedback Form (look up to the left on the list of tabs in the black side strip) and send details.
Note: We generally post shooting event information only (as contrasted with events that may be of interest to gun owners in general). We make this distinction because the website attracts a good bit of computer generated commercial go-there-buy-me requests to post.
Also note: The NCRPA website is not the go-to place for North Carolina clubs and association listings. These are published in the Association newsletter StateShots. Using the FEEDBACK request form, please ask questions about Clubs and Associations near you! Thanks!
