Charles Dunn head of the state Bureau of investigation said Quot i Don t want to prohibit people from owning guns. But i would like to be a Little bit More restrictive and make it a Little bit More difficult for people to own explaining that his suggestion would not entail gun registration Dunn recommended that All gun purchases be preceded by applying for a state permit. Obtaining the permit he said should be More than just a a i think that we re saturated with guns today a Dunn declared. A even if we had tight gun controls it would be too years before it would make any elaborating on his proposal the ski chief said he would like to see imported a saturday night specials banned. He also recommended a training program for All prospective gun owners to guard against accidental shootings. Dunn made his remarks after a speech he had delivered to the Thomasville my can a International management Council. He touched on other topics in the 15-minute question and answer session with press representatives. A i think that watergate has put everybody in Public service on the spot a Dunn asserted.

The Case is pending in the n. C. Supreme court at this time Ingram explained. In his speech today Ingram also predicted that the 1974 general Assembly will pass the no fault insurance Bill. A a for True automobile insurance Reform to work there must be sacrifices a Ingram continued. A the lawyers must sacrifice the insurance companies must sacrifice and the insurance agents must sacrifice. A no fault in North Carolina because it will be a compulsory system must require insurance companies to pay Back a High percentage of the Premium Dollar to the consumer. A we have discovered that no fault coverages presently available in North Carolina return Only about to cents on the Dollar in some instances. This is not acceptable to the people of North Carolina a Ingram said the benefits of no fault insurance Ingram explained include a reduced rates for Safe Drivers a getting your car repaired without delay a a not have an adjuster pull out his a Blue Book and say he can Only pay so much for your car which is a total loss abolishing All cancellations so that just because you put in a claim or just because you live in a poor neighbourhood or the color of your skin happens to be Black some company cannot cancel you. A a first step a a giant step a toward our goal of a new spoon of fairness in All areas of insurance was the enactment by the 1973 general Assembly of the reinsurance plan which abolished the assigned risk a Ingram said. The reinsurance plan abolishes cancellations and non renewals and forces an agent to write an automobile liability insurance policy for a motorists if he has a valid Drivers License and can pay the premiums. Ingram says he sees Clear support in the 1974 general Assembly for his proposed insurance reforms. A when the companies tried to Knock your commissioner Down in in the 1973 legislature the legislators propped him up a he said. A the 1973 general Assembly held the line against the great special interest pressure of most insurance companies several Banks with captive collision carriers and Premium finance companies and abolished liability cancellations a he explained.
