    North Carolina CCW

    I live in South Carolina and recently checked again on the NC rules. I have always though that you were prohibided from carrying anywhere you purchase tix for admission. I could not find that on the NC website. Did I miss it or was there a change?

    I may be wrong but I think the exact wording isn't "tickets" but the wording "paid admission".

    Just another example of the most convoluted gun laws in the US! I'm glad my family and I moved to SC!

    Its the same statute that prohibits carry into a place that serves alcohol:

    14‑269.3. Carrying weapons into assemblies and establishments where alcoholic beverages are sold and consumed.

    (a) It shall be unlawful for any person to carry any gun, rifle, or pistol into any assembly where a fee has been charged for admission thereto, or into any establishment in which alcoholic beverages are sold and consumed. Any person violating the provisions of this section shall be guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor.

    (b) This section shall not apply to the following:

    (1) A person exempted from the provisions of G.S. 14‑269;

    (2) The owner or lessee of the premises or business establishment;

    (3) A person participating in the event, if he is carrying a gun, rifle, or pistol with the permission of the owner, lessee, or person or organization sponsoring the event; and

    (4) A person registered or hired as a security guard by the owner, lessee, or person or organization sponsoring the event. (1977, c. 1016, s. 1; 1981, c. 412, s. 4, c. 747, s. 66; 1993, c. 539, s. 165; 1994, Ex. Sess., c. 24, s. 14(c).)

    This is definitely one of the worst laws in NC, IMO. I want to be able to carry into the d*** movie theater! This one, and the "financial institution" one should definitely be done away with--cause technically, you could potentially call any store a "financial institution."

    Yeah, theaters can get pretty rough at night too...

    But anywhere that charges admission, no CCW there.

    You can OC in a bank or financial institution, but not CC, so long as the entrance is not posted.
    You can not carry period, where admission is charged.

    Where did you get that information from? I haven't been able to find anything specific to OC like that.

    NORTH CAROLINA FIREARMS LAWS
    Paragraph III. A. 2.

    Assemblies and Establishments
    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.

    FYI, ... Paragraph III. A. covers: Categories of persons allowed in particular circumstances, to carry concealed weapons, i,e. "Bowie Knife, dirk, dagger, slingshot, loaded cane, metallic knuckles, razor, shurikin, stungun, or other deadly weapon of like kind. Not handguns

    This is the one paragraph all NC CHP holders should know by heart.

    Americans have the will to resist because you have weapons. If you don't have a gun, freedom of speech has no power.
