Just a reminder; changes to NC CC Law go into Effect Oct. 1, 2013

Quoted: Lawmakers in North Carolina recently approved a bill that has made it possible for concealed carry permit holders to carry their guns in more places. The bill was approved by the NC House and Senate and signed into law on July 29, 2013. It will allow those with a concealed carry permit to carry their guns into bars and restaurants as well as greenways, playgrounds, and other public recreational areas when it goes into effect on October 1, 2013. Concealed carry permit holders will also be able to store their firearms in a locked vehicle on public school and university campuses, according to Raleigh-Durham ABC affiliate WTVD-TV.

In addition to increasing the number of places where concealed carry permit holders may take their guns, the new legislation has brought a few changes to the handgun purchase permit law in North Carolina. The NRA Institute for Legislative Action outlines them as follows:
•An improved, streamlined permit issuing process
•Revocation requirements for people that have been issued a permit and later are prohibited from buying or owning a firearm

•A new and improved reporting process for records of those who are prohibited from buying or possessing firearms to the FBI’s National Instant Background Check System
•Safeguards for confidentiality of those who apply for a handgun purchase permit

This is good news. My buddy lives in NC. In preparation for visiting him last year, i read through the NC reciprocity rules and carrying there seemed pointless. Couldnt carry in a restaurant? I assume thats one of the added places.

I agree; here in Texas we have the right to carry almost anywhere and it is clearly written so when I read about simple things like CCW being restricted in public park, greenway or even a restaurant is very odd. these are the places you might need self protection. when someone asks me why I need a gun I respond by giving them a piece of paper and tell them to write down all the places they expect trouble today; that stops any further arguments

for those Texans we have a web site "Texas" to check ahead before you go

Im jealous of their campus rules. I don't go to college so obviously i am not concerned about carrying on campus, but i do drive onto a campus occasionally and according to florida law its illegal even if i never get out of the car. ridiculous.

I do believe Texas just changed theirs too and it goes into affect sept 1 of this year. the collage shoud be like the public school system (here in texas ) that if you are licenced you can carry on school grounds BUT not in the buildings OR if their is a scolstic event going on
