    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
    http://www.cherokeecounty-nc.gov/dep...ansporting.pdf
    "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
    to see.
    [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].


    In a nutshell, OC is legal without a license, just stay away from the areas above. OC is legal in a car without a license.

    We say that because you don't. The "must inform" law applies specifically to law abiding, permit holding citizens who are, at the time, armed with a concealed weapon. It applies to no one else.

    While transiting NC, I got a flat tire on I-85 east of Salisbury. I had my M&P in a SERPA on my hip while changing the tire roadside, while getting new tires at Discount Tire in Salisbury, and while eating lunch at the Steak & Shake next door. No problems anywhere.

    The manager of the Steak& Shake gave me a 10% LEO discount at the register. I 'fessed up that I wasn't law enforcement and gave her enough money for the full bill, but she said to go ahead and keep the extra change "'cause you got a gun." :?
    Guns don't kill people. Drivers on cell phones do.

    Be aware that our fine state is under a "State of Emergency" until Oct. 3rd. By law, there is no carry, concealed or otherwise off your premises during this time. Let descretion be the better part of valor.
