I posted this in General Glocking, but will copy and paste it here too.
"This goes out to all the North Carolinans on the board. How stringent are the NC gun laws. I am a soon-to-be medically retired Peace Officer in good standing out here in CA. In CA I am still able to CC under my retired PO status. Will I have the same rights in NC, or do I have to apply for a permit as a citizen? I know the law that Bush signed a couple of years ago, grants us the ability to cross states and CC, but not sure about the retired status. We are seriously considering relocation to NC. I am originally from Balto., MD, but have no desire to move back there. NC will be much closer to my family in MD. I would also like to PM with some NCers about employment and location suggestions."
Howdy Iron Nose!!
I'm not sure if there is any specific statute regarding out of state retired LEOs getting permits. The following is copy/pasted from Packing.org website.
"Attn: Retired LEO's
The documents you will need to present when applying for your permit are as follows:
(1) A copy of the officer's letter of retirement from either the North Carolina Teachers' and State Employees' Retirement System or the North Carolina Local Governmental Employees' Retirement System.
(2) Written documentation from the head of the agency where the person was previously employed indicating that the person was neither involuntarily terminated nor under administrative or criminal investigation within six months of retirement.
It is not clear, but seems logical that these documents would be in lieu of a CCW training certificate. Please contact the Sheriff's office in your county of residence for more information."
There is other info on the site you'd want to know. Just go to THIS SITE
and read up on the laws concerning CCW here.
As far as stringency goes, there are SOME stupid laws regarding carry, but all in all, it's not bad. Feel free to PM me if you want. I'm not the most knowledgeable, but I'll try to help any way I can.
