Pistol Permit Requirement for Crossbow Purchases Repealed

© By Othmar Vohringer

On July 29, 2010 I reported about an insane state law requiring anyone buying or otherwise receiving a crossbow in North Carolina to have either a pistol permit from their local sheriff's office or a concealed handgun permit. A bill has now been signed into law removing that requirement.

Crossbows are a legal method of hunting in North Carolina, permissible anytime bow-and-arrow hunting is allowed. However, the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission does not regulate the sale or purchase of firearms and crossbows. This is good news for the hunting community in North Carolina. It’s always good to see when commonsense prevails in the end.
