Concealed carry in North Carolina

I have a Georgia CHL and NC reciprocates, so I know I'm good at least that far.

My sister's wedding is Saturday next and I need to know if I can carry there. Its at the Matthews House in Cary, NC. From my reading of the NC concealed carry law I should be good to go.

What say North Carolina's finest?

Sounds like its good. Just like any business or private property the owners would have the final say. I doubt on a fancy joint like they would have signage on the front door either.

Some of the biggies, no carry allowed with ANY alcohol in your system. No carry where alcohol is sold for on premise consumption. (If they have an open bar on the premise for example) All no carry signs have the weight of law and you can be charged without further warning if you disregard them. The only stipulation on signage is that it be conspicuous. Don't forget, NC is a must notify LE if stopped for official business.

go to http://handgunlaw.us and read up on all of NCs info before heading out.

Carry a copy of the laws printed out on you, when I moved here with my Va permit a few cops I asked wasnt aware how the reciprocity system worked.

Just make sure you don't carry through SC. They don't reciprocate with Ga.

Not to nitpick, but Georgia doesn't issue a CHL...they issue a Georgia Weapons License...no distinction between open or concealed, and it isn't limited to handguns.

Make sure you read the actual laws.

I am not sure if a wedding would fall into the assembly definition of "Areas of assemblies, parades, funerals, or demonstrations." But it probably doesn't matter because most weddings have alcohol being sold AND consumed.

Cary has ordinances against open carry on streets and sidewalks. any private property including parking lots is fine though.

When you travel you are bound by the laws of the state you are in so even if GA allows other than handguns you can still only carry a handgun in NC with a permit. You also will need to be aware of the laws of the different municipalities if they allow or open carry or not.

You weren't nitpicking, because that fact was completely relevant to the OP's question ...

I'm pretty sure Cary is the only city in NC where you can't open carry, so just keep it concealed, and I'm pretty sure you're good to go. Don't go anywhere where alcohol is served, like Applebees either.

Just for future reference, Durham has a minimum length for open carry. I believe it's 6".

They need to enact something similar to statute §14-415.23 for open carry as they did with concealed carry. The state should be the only ones creating laws regarding firearms. A citizen shouldn't have to worry about crossing town lines.
