Coming up in a couple days. I hope to see lots of people there. We had 7 people last time and are looking to make a regular 20+.

Everyone is welcome to attend and have a nice social gathering with gun enthusiasts, regardless of OC or CC or nC (no carry).

NO problems at all. In these times, I think they appreciate the business.

We have a good time with OK food and great conversation. We usually stick around for 2-3 hours.

I open carry in Cary often, and have never had any problems. Mostly around the crossroads area.

Open Carry in Cary is.... odd.

According to town ordinance, you can't open carry on streets or sidewalks. Parks, I think, are prohibited for both Open and Concealed Carry, but I'm not positive.

So... you can OC at crossroads, but you can't walk from crossroads to McDonald's across the street. Or from one parking area to another - say, from Starbucks to Chick-Fil-A - if you have to cross a street.

The ordinance carries no legal weight, NC has preemption laws.

State law forbids local city or county governments from enacting any local gun laws.

So you can open carry in Cary just like anywhere else.

The location changes every meeting. I believe that we are going to meet at Crazy Fire Mongolian Grill in Cary, but it has not been set in stone yet.

That turns out not to be the case. The NC Preemption laws only apply to concealed carry, and have exceptions. Here it is:
(link: Chapter 14 - Article 54B (http://www.ncga.state.nc.us/enactedlegislation/statutes/html/byarticle/chapter_14/article_54b.html)

14‑415.23. Statewide uniformity.

It is the intent of the General Assembly to prescribe a uniform system for the regulation of legally carrying a concealed handgun. To insure uniformity, no political subdivisions, boards, or agencies of the State nor any county, city, municipality, municipal corporation, town, township, village, nor any department or agency thereof, may enact ordinances, rules, or regulations concerning legally carrying a concealed handgun. A unit of local government may adopt an ordinance to permit the posting of a prohibition against carrying a concealed handgun, in accordance with G.S. 14‑415.11(c), on local government buildings, their appurtenant premises, and parks. (1995, c. 398, s. 1.)

Also note that GS 160A-189 (http://www.ncga.state.nc.us/enactedlegislation/statutes/html/bysection/chapter_160a/gs_160a-189.html) specifically grants cities the right to regulate the display of firearms on public property:

160A‑189. Firearms.

A city may by ordinance regulate, restrict, or prohibit the discharge of firearms at any time or place within the city except when used in defense of person or property or pursuant to lawful directions of law‑enforcement officers, and may regulate the display of firearms on the streets, sidewalks, alleys, or other public property. Nothing in this section shall be construed to limit a city's authority to take action under Article 36A of Chapter 14 of the General Statutes. (1971, c. 698, s. 1.)

As written, Cary can't prohibit concealed carry except in and around local government buildings, and parks. They can still regulate open carry.

You're free to argue that Cary's current prohibition of the display of firearms exceeds their authority to regulate the display of firearms. But you would certainly be in for a wild ride through the court systems, all the way to the NC Supreme Court, with no guarantee that you'd win.

Me? I don't want that sort of headache. YMMV.

A shopping center or parking lot is not Cary property. I have been open carrying in Cary for over a year, along with many other people that I know, and none of us have ever had a problem.

Exactly so. As long as you're not walking the streets or sidewalks, and are already avoiding areas that you already can't conceal carry (parks and government buildings), you're fine.

That said, Dillard Drive, Walnut Ave, Caitboo Ave, and Crossroads Blvd, the streets in and around Crossroads Mall, are public streets. Can't walk across them while Open Carrying. Technically.


PITA.

Maybe we should get RussP to create an "Cary Open Carry" Icon or something.

You should come and shoot the IDPA match @ Personal Defense on Tryon rd. in Garner/Raleigh and then have the open carry supper. Just a thought. I'll be @ the match. Starts @ 5pm but if you come you should be there around 4 to 4:30.

BigFelipe

Any word on location as of yet? I like to plan well ahead.



I think I'll be attending the IDPA match to observe and learn if nothing else.

I'm new to Glock Talk posting and from the Raleigh area. I would like to participate even though I don't open carry. I don't have a problem with it, just something I choose not to do at this point...but I fully support the right to open carry and would like to meet other GT'ers in the area.

If you don't mind me tagging along, I'm not that familiar with Cary, can you give the address of CiCi's and the time?
