Rep. Chris Whitmire

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A bill allowing some North Carolina National Guard members to carry concealed handguns while on duty is now law.

Gov. Pat McCrory signed the measure Tuesday at a ceremony at National Guard headquarters in Raleigh.

The provision was added to legislation that also creates a new legal action for people injured by terrorists that they can use in North Carolina courts. The concealed weapons provision lets the state's adjutant general designate National Guard members with concealed weapons permits the ability to carry them in state buildings, such as recruiting offices.
