View Full Version : NC carry question
Before I get into any trouble ......
I know here in SC one cannot carry into a place of business that is posted ( provided the signage meets certain requirements spelled out in the SC law down to the size and color of the letters ) ...... how about NC ? If a place has just a "no concealed weapons allowed" small sticker in the window, is carrying in there a no-no ? Remember we are talking about businesses and not the "obvious" places ( courthouses, police stations, schools, banks etc ).
Thanks in advance !
IIRC posted is posted. There is no standard sign...
Some of the signs I have seen here in NC are tricky... They say something like, "No concealed weapons allowed (and in small letters) except for Law enforcement and those licensed to carry conceal weapons". They look like no CCW, but you gotta read the fine print...
Our law is pretty vague on postings.
It says the businesses have to have the signage "conspicuously" posted but it doesn't go on to define their meaning of conspicuous.
A 2" X 3" sticker among all the credit card stickers and other jumble on their doors to me is not conspicuous.
But to the liberal LE community and if it ever came down to it, the liberal jury...who knows what conspicuous is.
Our laws also do not specify what a proper sign is. No specific sizing of symbols or letters. Nothing.
Good luck carrying in somewhat free NC.
No special requirements for a sign in our state. They can pretty much post any way they want, as long as it is conspicuous.

Thanks guys !
I was just wanting to make sure since I will be doing some running up and down the border in the next few weeks, so there will be food, gas and wee-wee stops .....
Not so worried about some $#@$head going off "OMG he's got a GUN :shocked: " but in the rather very remote unpleasant situation where I would have to use it in SD.
