Please help with rules on civilian access to firearms?
PLEASE help me get this straight because I think I might have messed up recently.
NC law states that you may NOT conceal carry into a police station BUT that it is legal to open carry...do I have that right so far?
Nowhere in my cheat sheet does it say anything else about in a police car, etc.
If you are on a ride-along and have a CC permit, though, it's still NOT legal for any civilian to have access to a firearm while IN a police vehicle, correct? Or is it ok to still CC, as long as, you know, you're not the guy handcuffed in the back?
If I left my Sig locked in the glove box of my car while I was on the ride-along, does that count as it being concealed on police property and that was totally illegal? Or was that ok?
There was another thread about the hot chick waitress posing with a recruit's gun, I think. Someone said something about civilians not being allowed to handle LE firearms. What are the specifics on this, please? For example, if an on-duty officer is showing you their rifle/shotgun, are you not allowed to touch it at all? But if they're off-duty and it's their personal, not department-issued firearm, then that's totally ok, right?
I'm a little confused, and just wanted clarification. Thanks :)
