    Woodforest Bank in Walmart

    Many Walmarts in my area (North Carolina) have a Woodforest branch in them. If you are carrying can you walk up to the counter to make a transaction, or is that considered illegal carrying in a financial institution just like a free-standing bank?

    I have never seen a sign posted other wise. However, I was carrying and sent my wife in to deposit my paycheck. The teller told my needed to ask me a question and my wife told her I was a CHL holder and was armed thats why she had come in instead of me. The teller told her it was ok if I came to the counter.

    Contrary to popular belief, a bank is NOT a federal building. Carry on.
    What the **** - How did I end up on this soapbox again?!?!?

    there is no law against carrying into a bank in NC.

    But, if there were, I believe in this case, you can carry up to the counter. The bank "property" starts at the front edge of the counter...unless there is a sectioned area of the store for the bank...ie the floor changes to carpet etc...

    No accurate. There is no law against open carrying into a bank in NC that isn't posted. However,

    14‑415.11. Permit to carry concealed handgun; scope of permit.

    (a) Any person who has a concealed handgun permit may carry a concealed handgun unless otherwise specifically prohibited by law. The person shall carry the permit together with valid identification whenever the person is carrying a concealed handgun, shall disclose to any law enforcement officer that the person holds a valid permit and is carrying a concealed handgun when approached or addressed by the officer, and shall display both the permit and the proper identification upon the request of a law enforcement officer. In addition to these requirements, a military permittee whose permit has expired during deployment may carry a concealed handgun during the 90 days following the end of deployment and before the permit is renewed provided the permittee also displays proof of deployment to any law enforcement officer.

    (b) The sheriff shall issue a permit to carry a concealed handgun to a person who qualifies for a permit under G.S. 14‑415.12. The permit shall be valid throughout the State for a period of five years from the date of issuance.

    (c) A permit does not authorize a person to carry a concealed handgun in the areas prohibited by G.S. 14‑269.2, 14‑269.3, 14‑269.4, and 14‑277.2, in an area prohibited by rule adopted under G.S. 120‑32.1, in any area prohibited by 18 U.S.C. 922 or any other federal law, in a law enforcement or correctional facility, in a building housing only State or federal offices, in an office of the State or federal government that is not located in a building exclusively occupied by the State or federal government, a financial institution, or on any other premises, except state‑owned rest areas or state‑owned rest stops along the highways, where notice that carrying a concealed handgun is prohibited by the posting of a conspicuous notice or statement by the person in legal possession or control of the premises. It shall be unlawful for a person, with or without a permit, to carry a concealed handgun while consuming alcohol or at any time while the person has remaining in his body any alcohol or in his blood a controlled substance previously consumed, but a person does not violate this condition if a controlled substance in his blood was lawfully obtained and taken in therapeutically appropriate amounts.

    (d) A person who is issued a permit shall notify the sheriff who issued the permit of any change in the person's permanent address within 30 days after the change of address. If a permit is lost or destroyed, the person to whom the permit was issued shall notify the sheriff who issued the permit of the loss or destruction of the permit. A person may obtain a duplicate permit by submitting to the sheriff a notarized statement that the permit was lost or destroyed and paying the required duplicate permit fee. (1995, c. 398, s. 1; c. 507, s. 22.1(c); c. 509, s. 135.3(e); 1997, c. 238, s. 6; 2000‑140, s. 103; 2000‑191, s. 5; 2005‑232, s. 3.)

    Huh? Then technically, since I stayed away from the counter when I robbed the place, I didn't rob the bank! And my accomplices, who guarded the door, didn't rob the bank either.

    I found this:

    Places off-limits when carrying:
    Any location prohibited by federal law.
    A law enforcement of correctional facility.
    A building housing only state, federal or government offices.
    A financial institution.
    Any public or private school building or bus, campus, grounds, recreation area, athletic fields or other property used or owned by an edicational institution.
    Any assembly where a fee had been charged for admission or where alcoholic beverages are sold and comsumed.
    Any other premises where notice that carrying a concealed handgun is prohibited by the posting of a conspicuous notice or statement by the person in legal possession or control of the premises.
    It shall be unlawful for any person participating in, affiliated
    with, or present as a spectator at any parade, funeral procession, picket line, or demonstration upon any public place owned or under the control of the state or any of its political subdivisions to willfully or intentionally possess or have immediate access to any firearm.

    Please don't comment just for the sake of commenting. There are people naive enough to actually believe you know what you are talking about.

    My mistake. I quickly scanned the table of contents in the NC Firearms Laws...when I should have read the corresponding pages...

    Yeah, I'd have to say negative ghostrider on the Woodforest bank. At least for CC. I've wondered the same thing though. I'd rather not be the test case for it.

    In Texas you can carry in banks. States that don't allow that don't make much sense. If I'm depositing or withdrawing cash, that is exactly the time that I want to be armed
