    Maybe I am reading it wrong but North Carolina GS 14-269.2

    (f) Notwithstanding subsection (b) of this section it shall be a Class 1 misdemeanor rather than 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 if:

    (3) The firearm is not loaded, is in a motor vehicle, and is in a locked container or a locked firearm rack.

    So the way I read it is that if I have a gun in my car in a locked box, unloaded & get caught then it's only a misdemeanor & not a felony?

    How about this, just stay away from state, federal, and school grounds. Don't take the risk of being arrested, charged, and maybe prosecuted for exercising your 2A, it's certainly not worth it. (DON'T TEST THE WATERS, THEY'RE NOT FINE THERE).

    The reason I ask is I have a friend who has to go on school grounds once every now & then & he's told me that more than once he's forgotten to leave his firearm at home. He ends up going to another friends house 6 miles away & leaving it there. I just thought if he did get in a pinch & he had a lock box in his car then at least if he were caught it wouldn't be a felony. Just trying to help a friend.

    You are reading it correctly.

    Still not a good idea to try anything like that. It would most likely cause the CHP (if held) to be pulled.

    § 14‑415.18. Revocation or suspension of permit.

    (a) The sheriff of the county where the permit was issued or the sheriff of the county where the person resides may revoke a permit subsequent to a hearing for any of the following reasons:

    (3) The doing of an act or existence of a condition which would have been grounds for the denial of the permit by the sheriff.


    § 14‑415.12. Criteria to qualify for the issuance of a permit.

    (b) The sheriff shall deny a permit to an applicant who:

    (8) Is or has been adjudicated guilty of or received a prayer for judgment continued or suspended sentence for one or more crimes of violence constituting a misdemeanor, including but not limited to, a violation of a misdemeanor under Article 8 of Chapter 14 of the General Statutes, or a violation of a misdemeanor under G.S. 14‑225.2, 14‑226.1, 14‑258.1, 14‑269.2, 14‑269.3, 14‑269.4, 14‑269.6, 14‑276.1, 14‑277, 14‑277.1, 14‑277.2, 14‑277.3, 14‑281.1, 14‑283, 14‑288.2, 14‑288.4(a)(1) or (2), 14‑288.6, 14‑288.9, 14‑288.12, 14‑288.13, 14‑288.14, 14‑318.2, 14‑415.21(b), or 14‑415.26(d).

    § 14‑269.2. Weapons on campus or other educational property.

    Which means if you are caught with afirearm on school property in your car, unloaded & in a lock box, you won't get a felony on your record but you will lose your CC permit.

    I am glad you all addressed this because I honestly read that whole statute incorrectly.

    Which sucks if you must go onto school property or if you work for a school. When will we have enough school shootings to realize that one deputy on a campus as a "resource officer" is NOT ENOUGH to protect people.

    Why shouldn't instructors with CCH be allowed to carry to work....... I will never understand.

    I think this should be called the Ted Kennedy mentality. He wanted guns outlawed for everyone but cops and military personnel. He was ok with that because he hired off-duty or retired cops to be his armed body guards. I guess that mentality is ok if you can afford to have someone else protect you........

    Just to clarify you can keep it locked in your car on state and federal property, ie courthouses, police, town hall. With the exception of military bases. See upper case. School property is another absolute no go too.
