In the heat of legislators introducing legislation, we saw a lot of gun bills being introduced- including 3 called the Castle Doctrine. From the beginning, NASW-NC was opposed to these bills because of the already dangerous task of social workers making home visits and providing therapy in the homes of clients. These bills would give residents, motorists and workers more protection if shooting someone they perceived to be a threat.
Towards the end of session, all the gun bills were rolled into one- Amend Various Gun Laws.
Though we oppose of the Governor signing this bill into law, we are still proud of how the Governor is handling other legislation being presented to her.
