On Tuesday, the North Carolina House Judiciary Committee approved constitutional carry legislation by a vote of 7-4.

The decision comes just over a month after Breitbart News revealed that the North Carolina legislature overrode Gov. Roy Cooper's (D) veto, eliminating the state's requirement that law-abiding individuals obtain a permit in order to purchase a weapon.

The North Carolina House Judiciary passed constitutional carry legislation, according to the Associated Press, “two days before a parliamentary deadline for policy legislation to clear one legislative chamber so it can be considered through the remainder of the two-year session.”

This implies that the bill must pass through one more committee and the House floor in the next two days in order to be viable during this session.

The constitutional carry law in North Carolina also lowers the legal age for concealed carry to 18.

The Union now has 27 constitutional carry states. Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming are among the states represented.
