    I have my NC concealed carry permit, and certainly I understand that it is illegal to carry concealed where alcohol is bought and consumed.

    But, can I legally Open Carry in these restaurants?

    No, in this case the law does not specify mode of carry. Rather, it simply prohibits the possession of any firearm in places where alcohol is sold and consumed.

    They don't get together in places that serve alcohol, they get together in places that doesn't serve it. Hopefully, we can get this law changed. To be honest, its very hard to carry (open or concealed) for a whole day without going somewhere its not allowed at :-(

    Straight from the horse's mouth, the only place to get information on general statutes from:

    http://www.ncga.state.nc.us/gascript...StatutesTOC.pl

    All of the firearms laws are in Chapter 14 - Criminal Law except for Chapters 153A - Counties and 160A - Cities and Towns allow counties and cities to regulate the display of firearms in public areas.
