    As i was walking away from paying at the register he began to run his lip some about me carrying and what got me was his last response, "The goverment is gonna take your gun from you and there is nothing you can or no one else can do about it" with a hateful demeanor. I politely replied, "No they're not." I really couldnt educate him or hear how he knows the government is gonna take our guns because he had a long line and they was really busy; as I stated, he didnt start saying nothing until I started walking off. On the flip side, the Security Officer (unarmed) that night complimented me as I came in and as I left.

    This was from an employee? I don't stand for that and would have management involved ASAP.

    i carry all over Forsyth is a very anti place it kills me i can't carry in any of the parks, or cemeteries, or the library. there is nothing they can do about private.

    Please explain more why you think Forsyth is so anti? Just curious. I havent had no problems but I do respect the laws that are in place although I dont agree with them.

    1. most of the city board is against self defense (see GRNC against the w-s board)

    2 all cemeteries are posted against defensive carry

    3. all government properties are posted against self defense

    4. all libraries are posted

    5. all parks are posted against state laws by calling them "athletic" feilds

    the cheif of police has told me they do not want carry in town and the sheriff has tried to break the law and keep 18-20 from getting PPP

    there's more but that should be enough

    just to clarify, i would be surprised in Surry, Yadkin, Stokes, Alleghany,so many others, if anything anti were done. i am very relaxed in these counties

    i am always on my guard in Forsyth, Guilford, Mecklenburg, Wake. you just don't know about those people

    Welcome to NCDO

    As long as there was NO Gun Buster signs than you are good!!! You do not have to empty your weapon, whats an unloaded arm gonna do if you a situation arrives and need to defend yourself? Do remember though, if you are asked to leave the premises you must comply or you could be charged with trespassing. I am an armed security officer myself but I enjoy having other people OC at my post, I know if sh@* hits the fan I have some backup! lol Although I keep a backup weapon loaded and 3 mags full for each weapon. I don't understand why some security personel is that way, I assume they let some things go to their head, but I DO NOT. Enjoy and Happy OC'ing.
