NC House Bill Exempts Judges, Clerks On Gun Rules Eds

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- A bill exempting North Carolina's judges and clerks of court from limits on where they can carry concealed weapons has passed the House.

The bill passed the House Tuesday with little opposition. The vote followed a heated debate for another House bill expanding where concealed weapon permit holders can carry or store their pistols. That bill opens the door to carry or store weapons in restaurants where alcohol is sold, greenways, walking paths and locked cars on public college campuses.

The bill passed later adds judges and clerks of court to a list of those who are exempt from limits on where they can carry concealed weapons. That list includes district attorneys, assistant district attorneys, police officers and others.

The bill now heads to the Senate.
