Push to Repeal and Replace NC’s ‘Stand Your Ground’ Law

House Bill 723, also know as the “Gun Safety Act,” was filed by two state Democrats this week. It would repeal the state’s ‘Stand Your Ground’ law, which gives North Carolinians the right to defend themselves with deadly force in their homes, vehicles, and workplaces. The new bill would limit that to just the home and would also strengthen the law regarding safe storage of firearms.
