This is a discussion on Open Carry in NC? within the Open Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Originally Posted by NC Bullseye Well, I'm not chiefjason (I have been known to be in the same vicinity occasionally) but I can tell you ...
At the time of that post, it was against NC law to carry concealed into a financial institution but there were no laws making open carry illegal unless the institution was posted no firearms. Since then the NC statue 14‑415.11 has changed and neither concealed carry nor open are specified illegal in financial institutions except when their premises are posted.
You can see the changes made that took effect December 1, 2011 at SL2011-0268
Note item c8 of 14-415.11 has a strike thru.
