Repeal of Jim Crow Era Handgun Registry

The Durham County Republican Party issues the following press release for immediate publication:

Durham GOP Activist Spearheads Repeal of Jim Crow-Era Handgun Registry

June 20, 2014 – For decades, Durham County has been the only county in North Carolina to have a law requiring its residents to register their handguns into a county handgun registry. Now, thanks to the leadership of one Durham Republican activist and a Democrat Senator, this 79 year old legacy of the Jim Crow era has been repealed. On June 19, 2014, Senate Bill 226, Repeal 1935 Durham Co. Firearm Act, was ratified into law.

This victory for civil rights is due to the work of Durham County Republican activist Paul Daniel, who persisted, day after day, in reminding legislators that this remnant of the Jim Crow era must be repealed. He also prompted many citizens to call their legislators.

We also thank Senator Mike Woodard (D) who researched the old gun registry law and saw the injustice. He authored the bill to repeal it and shepherded it through the Senate last year, even when some in his own party fought him on this issue. Mike demonstrated true leadership and conviction and stood his ground to do the right thing.

A special thanks goes out to Grass Roots North Carolina whose leaders played a major role in getting the word out to the public and also working closely with the legislators. Their involvement in this issue was a critical part of its overall success.

Thank you to Paul Daniel, Senator Mike Woodard, Grass Roots NC, and all the people who called their legislators for achieving this needed repeal.
