Ok, here's the background.
In NC, you may carry a firearm into a bank (unless posted) as long as you OPEN CARRY. Concealed firearms are not allowed. I think it's also the same with police stations.
However -- and here's the debate -- NO FIREARMS in Federal buildings, among other places.
Today, a friend of mine who happens to be a bank manager, said to me that banks are actually a Federal Building, and thus no carry at all in any NC bank. (Is that because they are FDIC? Or because it's a Federal Crime to rob a bank?) But Credit unions may be different, she said, because they are not FDIC. I don't think that's right, otherwise why would the sheet they hand out in CC class say no CC in banks, but OC is legal, but NO-C in Federal buildings? But then, she IS a bank manager, so she ought to know, right? In theory? I didn't want to debate her, but I may call her up tonight and "nyah nyah" if she's wrong here.
So 2 things, please.
1) Is a bank a federal building? What does that make a Credit Union?
2) You know how they have mini-branches of banks in the supermarket sometimes, or in Wally-World? Well does that make the supermarket/WW a "Federal Building" then? And if so, does that mean we can't CC --or carry at all now for that matter-- into a place where there is a mini-branch on the grounds?
Help! Any of you CCH Instructors out there wanna weigh in? Much obliged.
