Yes. NC recognizes Ga CCW. Here is NC State Attorney General reciprocity link: http://www.ncdoj.com/DocumentStreamerClient?directory=Publications&file=listofstates.pdf

Packing is not only down, it's down for the count. It's history. One site that has a pretty good replacement source of info is http://handgunlaw.us/ and will cover what you ask. Don't forget that even though NC recognizes GA permits, you're still bound to follow NC law when in NC so best to read through NC concealed laws on where and when you can carry concealed.

Mr Shoe and I just bought a mountain house in North Carolina, and I have a Georgia carry permit. I understand that GA and NC are reciprocal, but am a bit confused on the laws as far as concealed carry in restaurants and public places, as well as transport of firearms in a vehicle.

It also appears that I need to be a PERMANENT resident of NC (as opposed to a homeowner who visits once a month) in order to get a resident permit. Is there such a thing as a NC NON-resident carry permit? Some states offer non-resident permits for those who only come to that state occasionally, but I can't tell if NC offers one or not. Anyone know? I've been on all kinds of web sites, but I'm never confident that I'm getting the most current information.

Thanks so much in advance!

First, welcome to tarheel land!

Let me answer your last questions first. No, NC doesn't offer a non-resident permit. Need to be a resident for at least 30 days to get a NC CHP. As for the restaurants, if it sells alcohol for on site consumption, you can not carry there (like Outback, Chili's, ETC). No alcohol and no signs saying no firearms and you're good to go, carry away. In regards to carry in your vehicle, you can carry concealed anywhere you like, on your person, console, glovebox, etc. as long as you have your Georgia permit. Note that you are required by NC law to notify officers of the law you are carrying if stopped. Don't forget that! Below are the major areas that are no carry and no firearms zones in NC.

The following information is copied from the North Carolina Justice Academy
Concealed Carry Instructors course. As always, check to verify these are still
current for your own protection.


Places where permit does not authorize carrying a concealed handgun,
or any firearm.

Ten areas are listed in N.C.G.S. 14-415.11(c) as places a concealed
handgun is not allowed by the permit statute. On some of this
location, no firearm, open or concealed, can be lawfully possessed by a
private citizen. Any firearm on those premises is illegal. In others, the
prohibition extends to concealed handguns. These locations are
designated as no concealed handgun zones by the permit statute.
The difference between no firearm zone and no concealed carry
zone is important. A handgun that is openly carried, and not
concealed, does not violate the concealed carry statute and does not
violate the concealed deadly weapon statute, N.C.G.S. 14-269, but the
no firearm zones prohibit open and concealed firearms.

a) Educational property: NO FIREARMS
Educational property is generally that of any public or private
educational institution. Included are the buildings, grounds,
recreation and athletic areas, buses, and . . . other property
owned, used, or operated (by a public or private educational
institution). The educational institution may be a nursery
school or a university. The facility may be an entire hospital or
just a bus. Violation may be a Class I felony, N.C.G.S. 14-
269.2(b).

b) Assembly where admission fee is charged: NO FIREARMS
Any assembly where an admission fee has been charged,
N.C.G.S. 14-269.3.

c) Alcoholic beverages sold and consumed: NO FIREARMS
In any place where alcoholic beverages are sold and consumed.
Certain exceptions are provided. Violation is a Class 1
Misdemeanor, N.C.G.S. 14-269.3.

d) Courthouses, state buildings, and federal property: NO
FIREARMS
Firearms are prohibited on certain state property. Enumerated
are the State Capitol Building, the Executive Mansion, the
Western Residence of the Governor, or in any building housing
any court of the General Court of Justice. Certain exceptions
are provided. Federal property generally is also forbidden
under various provisions of federal and state statutes.
Violation is a Class 1 Misdemeanor, N.C.G.S. 14-269.4.

e) At a parade, demonstration, funeral, picket line: NO
FIREARMS
Firearms are prohibited in, or as a spectator at, any parade,
funeral procession, picket line, or demonstration upon any
private health care facility, or upon any public place prohibited
by the state or any political subdivision. Violation is a Class 1
Misdemeanor, N.C.G.S. 14-277.2.

f) In a law enforcement facility: NO CONCEALED
HANDGUNS
In a law enforcement facility, meaning in any building or on
premises occupied by a law enforcement agency of the state, a
county, a municipality, a company police agency, or a campus
law enforcement facility.

g) Department of Correction facility: NO CONCEALED
HANDGUNS
In a correctional facility, meaning in a building or on premises
operated by the North Carolina Department of Correction.

h) Offices of state or federal government: NO CONCEALED
HANDGUNS
In any building housing only federal or state offices, or in any
office used by the state or federal government in any other
building.

i) Financial institutions: NO CONCEALED HANDGUNS
In a financial institution, including banks, savings and loan, or
credit unions.

j) Anywhere a conspicuous sign posted: NO CONCEALED
HANDGUNS
On any premises where a conspicuous notice is posted, or
statement is made by the person in charge, that carrying a
concealed weapon is prohibited. Any property owner has the
right to prohibit possession of a concealed handgun. Notice
may be given personally by the person in charge of the
premises or by a conspicuous sign.
If the law prohibits only concealed handguns, and not all
firearms, a person with a concealed carry permit will comply
with the law by moving the handgun from a concealed to an
open, nonconcealed position. Of course, that may not be
practical under all circumstances.
Also, a person in charge of any private premises may prohibit
an openly possessed or concealed handgun by using the
trespass law. The occupant can, under the trespass law, order a
person openly carrying a firearm to leave. If the order to leave
is not obeyed, criminal trespass has been committed. Nothing
in the Aconcealed carry statute authorizes possession of any
weapon contrary to the wishes of the person in charge of
private property.
Suppose the person in charge of private property posts a
conspicuous sign prohibiting all firearms, open and concealed,
handguns or long guns. That use of trespass law is probably
valid. Going on that premise may be criminal trespass.


Good luck and feel free to ask any other questions!
