    Question about NC laws...

    I remember about a year back now, there was talk about rehashing two main carry laws. The no carry in an establishment that servers alcohol for consumption, and no carry in places that charge admission. I was wondering if anyone has heard anything about this recently? Really sucks we cannot carry in just about every restaurant out there. And I was wondering if anyone has seen any publishings about movie theaters as places that charge admission to be excluded, seeing that I think that section of the law was written for sporting events, concerts, and the likes. Appreciate any and all knowledge heading my way!

    EDIT :

    While I'm thinking of it too...is an ABC store considered a state building here since the sale of alcohol (liquor) is controlled by the state?

    Places that charge admission are not referenced, but they do exclude "public gatherings such as parades". I suppose that could be used to cover sporting events, conventions, etc. They also specifically mention "financial institutions" which would be banks, credit unions, loan offices, etc.

    Now that REALLY sucks...
    Now they do allow carry in your home, right?

    Page 21, at the bottom.

    North Carolina law also prohibits any person carrying a gun, rifle, or pistol into
    any assembly where a fee has been charged for admission or into any establishment
    where alcoholic beverages are both sold and consumed. Again, the individuals exempted
    from carrying concealed weapons cited in paragraph III. A. of this publication are
    similarly exempted under this law. A concealed handgun permit does not allow a
    permittee to carry a weapon in these areas.

    Thought I remembered reading this, was just really hoping that bill I was thinking about was passed into law. Stinks leaving the gun in the car for a whole night of dinner and a movie...

    ABC stores are all off-limits due to them being owned state/county run, they are all also posted with no ccw signs, at least all the ones I have seen. The other 2 laws regarding restuarants with alcohol, and places that charge admission were being discussed last year, but no action was taken, so the laws still stand in effect.
    Remember, no matter where you go, there you are.

    Since this is the short session of state legislature GRNC is holding off trying to get any new bills introduced until the next full session, 2009. Hopefully by then most of the anti-self defense legislators will have been voted out.

    You don't have to follow the law, you can become a felon if you chose.

    Haha nn, this is true, I could. But, I won't. I could have just not gone out, like I normally would do. But I was in town for a whooping night and wanted to go out with my father before I left for Quantico again. Oh well, perhaps next year we'll be able to have a normal night out and still protect those we love. Fingers not crossed though....

    I've already recieved a response noting that these will be re-introduced in the 2009 session.

    I get this....but at the same time people rob banks at gunpoint...why can the "badguys" bring guns in but the "goodguys" can't. My arguement is two prong:

    1. A criminal may be less likely to rob a place that possibly has CCW's inside. Who wants to get shot?

    2. Responsible CCW may be able to end the ordeal from inside potentially quelling hostage situation/ killings.
