Well, I will soon be visiting family in NC. Here I was looking forward to the fact that I would finally be spending some time in a state that honors my Florida permit. (<RedStripe>Hooray, liberty!</RedStripe>)
Then I went to handgunlaw.us and looked up the off-limits places. So, pretty much every restaurant above the level of fast food (i.e., any place that serves alcohol for consumption on premises) as well as any place that charges admission (movie theaters, sports venues, &c.) are no-carry zones. And any place that posts no carry. And banks. And schools and gummint and public events and...
So much for enjoying the exercise of my rights. This is a vacation. We will be eating out, and not at fast food. And my dad says he is okay with me carrying, but his wife is one of those people who thinks guns will jump up and wreak havoc at any moment, so I better not let her see it. That also means that taking the time to lock up in the car is...shall we say, problematic. And OC (if it is even allowed, which I hadn't bothered to look up yet) is right the heck out for the same reason.
