    sign posting law in NC

    I live in Charlotte NC and one of our Mall has a sign posted on the wall next to the ONe of the main doors of the mall Stating that you can not carry open or concealed weapon even with a CCW. But it is not posted at any other enterance of the Mall or anyother store leading into the main mall.

    Question- Does this sign have to be posted at every enterance for it to be enforenced. And does it require a state seal.

    Can't answer your question as I am not from NC but I would just enter through another unposted door.

    I agree and you are not aware of the posted door.

    Our CCH instructor (LEO) told us to do exactly that; go in the mall through the anchor stores that are not posted. When you leave the anchor store and enter the mall area, there are no signs. There are also no signs anywhere else in the mall. Therefore, if you did not come in through the mall entrance, there is no way a reasonable person could assume that guns were not allowed since there were no signs.

    Not from NC, but are you sure that would fly in court?
    Do you really want to risk it if found with a weapon on you?
    Will your LEO CCH instructor testify on yourbehalf and be willing to say that he told you that in class?

    I live in the "free" part of NC,,, I thought Charlotte had a carry ban on the books for anyone but LEO's anyway...

    I've been wrong before though...

    But,,, I live around the Triad area,, not your neck of the woods. I asked a local LEO about that,, regarding the one sign on ONE door where I work... He said the owner of the building only has to post one sign to cover their butt...

    I'm from Charlotte also. I have seen some of these stupid signs. (Sorry if that sounds harsh. I am just bitter about dumb laws that place law abiding citizens defenseless , i.e. VT shootings.... case closed. ) Charlotte does allow open and concealed carry, "where legal" by state laws.

    But I would bet money if you were stopped by one of the high speed/low drag cops hear in Charlotte, they would probably give you alot of trouble. But I have no personal experience. I just do not have alot of respect for the police around hear.

    Personally, I carry into one of the malls around my house that are posted. But this mall do not seem as safe as they should with so many little thugs in trainning running around. Especially after a couple of months ago when my wife and I went to a movie there. We were walking to the mall from the parking lot and some little hoodalum came jogging by us telling us that someone in a car in the back of the parking lot had a gun. I thought he was just full of crap, but the more I thought about it, the more I starting believing him. So now I carry.

    But anyway there does not seem to be any metal detectors in the malls I go to so I carry every chance I get.
    Things happen, but the only thing that matters at the end of the day is what you do during and after in order to survive.
