    Question Where can I find a list of OC laws for NC?

    I have had my intrest in OC renewed by this site. I usually carry CC, only OC while I am hunting/scouting.

    I have looked in several different sites and searched as many terms as I can think of to find the laws surrounding OC in North Carolina, specifficaly Mecklenburg county. I can find a TON of info on CC but nothing outside of this site on OC.

    Mostly I am wondering where I can and cannot carry BY THE LAW. I know not were weapons are prohibited by posting, but what about all the places you cannot CC (like my other question, to festivals and schools, hospitals etc). Thanks in advance.

    There is no such list. There are no laws on the books in NC directly pertaining to lawful OC.

    Prohibited places are just that, regardless of your method of carry. One loophole, should you choose to exploit it, is when entering an establishment with a "no concealed weapons sign" (or entering an unposted financial institution, as the law specifically states that "concealed" weapons are prohibited). If your firearm is not concealed then you are not in violation - I would, however, expect to meet some kind of resistance in such a situation, as you are following the letter of the law & not the intent [raises flame shield].

    You don't ask the government to create laws telling you what you may do. That creates a bad precedent.

    Basically, if you only OC where you can CC then you stay on the right side of the law. There are a couple minor exceptions to this. The main one being that it's not illegal to OC in a bank. If you want to go to the CC scope of permit, then check all the statutes for prohibited places. You'll find that most of them ban OC and CC.

    I have this book, and it is very informative, but it's a VERY dry read, and a little difficult to navigate, as the index is not the best, and there isn't much of a cross-reference list for laws or circumstances.

    You pretty much just have to slog through the book, going off of chapter titles to find what you need. A little ponderous, but it is a good resource for NC Statute and Case Law regarding all things firearms.

    This book would be a GREAT book if it were $19. At $29, it's a good resource if you are "bookish", or a research geek, but it's a little dense for someone who isn't a research nut, or familiar with reading legal documents. For nearly $30 for a medium-sized paperback, I would usually expect a little more in the way of index and cross-reference.
    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."

    So the readers digest list is:
    No Schools
    ...Government Buildings
    ...Paid Admission Events
    ...Bars/Resturants that serve ALC
    ...Posted stores
    ...Parks

    Did I miss anything in the GERERAL category. Yes I know there are a thousand vareations but this covers basics, right?

    Add the restriction for parades, picket lines and such and that should cover it.

    Also, here is a good concise website for laws around the country. This link is the NC page. The guy that runs it tries to keep it updated as much as possible. He's been busy this year.

    What?!!! You absolutely CAN carry in churches unless they post against it or run a K-12 school.

    I've never heard that you can't carry at a funeral. Can you cite the prohibition?

    Ah, so you can't carry in the funeral "procession" but I guess you can still carry at the viewing/service unless the facility is posted.

    It shall be presumed that any rifle or gun carried on a rack in a pickup truck at a holiday parade or in a funeral procession does not violate the terms of this act.
    hehe ... that part is great. I love the logic - no handgun, but my AR on the rack is just fine.

    BTW - Do they make racks for handguns?
