    seems a NC Gun entity is still under a misconception about OC'g

    seems the NC Rifle and Pistol Association is a smidge biased on OC'g! course the CC question page is dated: Copyright 2009 NC Rifle & Pistol Association. All rights reserved. Revised: March 2010.

    the instructor course list is dated 2014! http://www.ncrpa.org/faq/2014%20Trai...or%20NCRPA.pdf

    and someone is not shy on their perceptions: We have been trying for 10 years to get the Pistol Purchase Permit system completely eliminated. Apparently when it comes to gun control a lot of people think Jim Crow is still a good idea. http://www.ncrpa.org/faq/ownership.shtml

    Q: I don't want to get a Concealed Handgun Permit; I just want to carry a gun openly in a holster. Is this legal?
    A: In North Carolina there is no State law specifically prohibiting the open carry of firearms. Under the theory that if it isn't specifically prohibited it's not illegal, open carry is possible. There are some glaring exceptions to this. They are:


    Private property owners and businesses can post "no guns."
    Firearms are strictly prohibited on state-owned property, except rest areas and state lands where hunting is permitted.
    Local governments can (and do) enact prohibitions against "display of firearms" in cities and/or specific areas within cities or counties, which means they can't be visible. Under this statute there is absolutely no requirement for the city or county to post notice of the display ban.
    Local governments can (and do) enact firearms bans on local government property and in parks and recreational areas.
    Any federally-owned property or federally-regulated property like banks and Post Offices is of course a prohibited area. ( added by me: repealed in 12/11)
    Much of the Outer Banks is "National Seashore," and firearms are prohibited in those areas.
    So in theory that leaves everywhere else in the state - except for one more thing. There is a common-law offense in NC called "going armed to the terror of the people." Basically what this means is that if someone sees you carrying a firearm and calls the police to report "person with a gun," you can be charged with this offense. It's not often used in rural areas, but has been used in populated areas. If you are an out-of-state visitor who is not here lawfully hunting or engaged in some overt firearms-related event such as a competition, it will be hard to talk your way out of it.


    Q: So is open carry legal in NC?


    A: In theory, yes. In practice, maybe. It seems to us like a very good way to get arrested.

    IIRC NCRPA is the NRA assilliate. Follow the money to P4P

    Sooo much wrong with the NCRPA provided opinion.

    I'll just address two:

    The National Seashore is NPS (National Park Service) land/juristiction = OC or CC is legal, except in facilities (buildings) where employees regularly work - must have signage.

    "Going armed to the terror of the people" - LOLROF, that sieve won't hold water.

    OC is the natural, normal, acceptable means enjoyed regularly throughout NC.
