I am very disappointed to see that Ruddick Corp. & Harris Teeter have decided to suppress my second amendment right by posting signs prohibiting the LEGAL carrying of weapons! Carrying a handgun openly holstered is completely legal in NC just as is carrying a concealed weapon with a permit. To obtain such a permit requires one to obtain weapons training and submit to extensive criminal & mental health background checks.
You have the right to carry a handgun for personal protection and the right to choose not to. However, when you decide that I cannot exercise my rights in your store, I will be glad to take my business elsewhere. My safety is worth much more! Those signs will do nothing to prevent criminals from carrying weapons; they'll carry regardless that is why they are criminals. I will miss your excellent deli and great customer service but I am a firm believer in the constitution.
