    I have Google setup to watch for news and blogs that mention "Open Carry" and one of them brought me to a forum where I found the following statement.

    In NC you can open carry...until someone calls the Police. If someone is made "uncomfortable" by you open carrying you can be charged with brandishing a weapon.

    I know it is stupid but that is the way it is here.
    So, my question is, is the above statement true?

    Thanks in advance for all answers.

    not true. nc has a remote law on the books called "going armed to the terror of the public." it states clearly that you must:

    a. arm yourself on a public highway

    b. for the purpose of intimidating or causing panic.

    dont have the cites on hand, but they are on here somewhere. i have oc'd all over yadkin and forsyth county and never really gotten even a casual glance. the onlycities i know of with restrictions on oc are Cary, which has some law about the size of the handgun. also, from what i understand from my son being stationed at Camp Lejeune ( jacksonville ) the police there are pretty aggresive about investigating mwag calls
