Got some bad news. I'm a true yankee that moved from NH 8 years ago. The good news is (it's not about my automobile insurance) is that you can OC here in NC. Instead of just telling you, let me just show you. [img]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/dgeorgia/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot-2.jpg[/img]
http://www.charmeck.org/Departments/...un+Permits.htm which is the Sheriff website for Mecklenburg County where I live says:
"Guns must be carried in plain view. Guns must not be carried in a pocket, purse, under a car seat or in any other concealed manner unless you have a concealed handgun permit."
§ 14‑269.2. Weapons on campus or other educational property.
"It shall be a Class I felony for any person to possess or carry, whether openly or concealed, any gun, rifle, pistol, or other firearm of any kind on educational property or to a curricular or extracurricular activity sponsored by a school."
§ 14‑269.3. Carrying weapons into assemblies and establishments where alcoholic beverages are sold and consumed.
"It shall be unlawful for any person to carry any gun, rifle, or pistol into any assembly where a fee has been charged for admission thereto, or into any establishment in which alcoholic beverages are sold and consumed."
§ 14‑269.4. Weapons on State property and in courthouses.
"It shall be unlawful for any person to possess, or carry, whether openly or concealed, any deadly weapon, not used solely for instructional or officially sanctioned ceremonial purposes in the State Capitol Building, the Executive Mansion, the Western Residence of the Governor, or on the grounds of any of these buildings, and in any building housing any court of the General Court of Justice."
§ 14‑277.2. Weapons at parades, etc., prohibited.
"It shall be unlawful for any person participating in, affiliated with, or present as a spectator at any parade, funeral procession, picket line, or demonstration upon any private health care facility or upon any public place owned or under the control of the State or any of its political subdivisions to willfully or intentionally possess or have immediate access to any dangerous weapon."
Information on Transporting Weapons
"Individuals in North Carolina must be ever careful to ensure that their particular situation cannot be construed as concealing a weapon either on or about them without being properly licensed to do so with a valid North Carolina concealed handgun permit."
"A weapon would be concealed in violation of NC law if it were placed in such areas of
the vehicle as, under the seat of the automobile; in a bag in the backseat; in an unlocked
glove compartment; or in some manner where the weapon is covered or hidden within
easy reach of an occupant of a vehicle."
While a weapon carried openly in a vehicle (such as on the seat of the vehicle) would not
be concealed, there are other problems with this method of transporting a weapon. The
biggest problem is that in the event of a person being stopped by a law enforcement
officer, the officer may not know the person's intent for carrying a weapon. So it is very
important that a person immediately notify an officer of the presence of any weapon in
the automobile, for the officer's as well as the vehicle occupant's safety. Another problem
with this method of carrying leaves a va luable weapon in plain view for potential thieves
[No license to OC in a car in NC! Some say you are not required when OCing to notify a LEO if you are carrying, I don't know. My citizen advice would be to let him know, since you are out of state anyway. The section about transporting weapons should not be quoted as an authority but is simply provided as a reference guide by the State of NC].
EDIT: realized I just did Dreqo's job. Your welcome State Researcher.
