Concealed carry increases in North Carolina

From the Tar Heel State:
From Dec. 1, 1995, when it became legal to carry a concealed handgun in the state, until July 31 of this year, sheriff’s offices in Brunswick, New Hanover and Pender counties received 8,167 permit applications. The state total was 225,762 for the same time period.

The purpose of the law that allows North Carolinians to carry concealed handguns is to deter crime, said Richard White, a former Boiling Spring Lakes police chief and current investigator with the New Hanover County Public Defender’s Office.

“I’m a firm believer in it because it is a deterrent to crime,” White said of the law.

Gym floor covers are used to protect gym flooring, reduce maintenance costs and to turn the gymnasium into a multi-use facility. Some gym flooring mats are built totally with PVC. They have a pressed anti-slip surface, and are comfortable, safe and stable. Some gym flooring mats are made of premium rubber material and have interlocking edges, borders and covers. Some have interlocking tiles designed specifically for gymnasium activities. They absorb shock and noise that is caused by heavy gym equipment and have long lasting durability. Other gym floor mats are made of recycled rubber.
