Moving from FL to NC/VA. CCW laws? + Largest Gun Store in the World!
Moving from FL to north east NC just 1hr from VA.
I would be going into VA often too.
I'm on handgunlaw.us now...
Regarding the NC laws....
Not allowed - "Assemblies and establishments where admission was charged. §14-269.3"
So, I could carry in a mall, but it is illegal to carry into the movie theater in the mall because it charges admission?
What is the point of this? :confused:
Hmm...this one stands out: "Where notice of carrying a concealed handgun is prohibited by the posting of a conspicuous notice or
Sooooooo...here in FL (as I understand it) if an establishment has a sign, it's simply their policy and they have the right to ask you to leave, etc...if caught carrying a handgun BUT it isn't ILLEGAL.
In NC it seems, if an establishment has a sign and you carry- you are breaking the law. :mad: That really sucks.
No carry in State parks in NC. Another bummer.
MUST INFORM Police Officer...well, that's not a big deal.
How does the overall legal system treat people with CCW in NC? The system overall seems to be on the side of CCW folks here in FL.
This is interesting:
No person shall carry a concealed handgun onto the premises of any restaurant or club as defined in
§4.1-100 for which a license to sell and serve alcoholic beverages for on-premises consumption has
been granted by the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control Board under Title 4.1 of the Code of
Virginia, nothing herein shall prohibit any owner or event sponsor or his employees from carrying a
concealed handgun while on duty at such restaurant or club if such person has a concealed handgun
permit. NOTE: only concealed handguns are prohibited - openly carried handguns are allowed
OPEN CARRY huh?
Carrying dangerous weapon to place of religious worship while a meeting for religious purposes is
being held unless you have "good and sufficient reason." There is no known definition of what a
good and sufficient reason would be. Violation is a minor crime, punishable by a fine of up to $100.
Pfffffffffft! Rediculous! I think I saw on VA News they were considering changing some gun laws?
Seems VA is a bit better overall to carry compared to NC, on paper anyway.
In practice, how are both states?
Largest Gun Store in the World:
My Dad says there is a gun shop 30min away that has a good selection...fun to go and just look around. So, we went.
I was expecting it to be similar to Shoot Straight here in Central FL.
WHOA...I was wrong!
Picasa Web Albums - Alphawolf - Mackeys Gun S...
It was like a HOME DEPOT of guns!
It isn't in a very populated area so I don't see how they can tie up all that cash in inventory.
They have a 1 page website:
Mackey's Landing Firearms - Home
6000 firearms...seems like a legit claim.
Prices were not atrocious - with a little dealing on some stuff I'd buy there no problem.
Thanks in advance for any tips on NC/VA carry.
PS- is there any good reason to get a NC CCW license if I already have a FL CCW license? It's good for another 2yrs?
