Agree. You can't even carry a firearm out in state or national parks, to defend yourself in case of attack by some crazy guy, bear, cougar, wild dogs.

Sounds like that never happens right? Search the news. Girl raped, murdered, dismembered in Blue Ridge Park...Coyotes killed singer in Canada park...

It is legal to carry a conceiled weapon in a park if you have a permit.

My Springfield Armory 1911A1 Mil-Spec (have since done some work to it) was purchased in this manner and is legally registered to me. My main reason for wanting my full CCW license is two-fold: Open carry in Charlotte either ends in harassment by police/citizenry or arrest, and the limit of 3 Purchase Permits at a time really rubs me the wrong way, and according to friends with CCW licenses, once you have it, you use that as your Purchase Permit and don't have to keep going back to the Sheriff's Office every 3 handguns you buy and paying the $5 per permit fee. PM me if you'd care to answer these question in email. Looking forward to accurate responses.

When you go to class with your own weapon, nothing is checked (registration). When you walk into the front door, your weapon is taken and sealed until you are on the range. Your CCW license is your permit to purchase. I know nobody that has been harrassed by police for having a permit as long as protocol is followed if stopped. You will only get your license after a thourough background check has been accomplished. It usually takes over three months.

All of the CCW classes that I have looked into provide guns for people who don't already own one, so no, it is not necessarily required to have your own. I would want my own just because I would be more familiar and therefor more comfortable with it, although I have taken classes, both for handguns and rifles, with weapons provided by the instructor, and it works fine.

Don't you love the land of misinformation(internet).


Let's see, today I went to Home Depot, Lowes, Sports Authority, AT&T, Staples and Lowes Food Store. Yep, not many places to go.

While it may have been a slight exaggeration, BarkingOwl does have a point in that there are a good number of places that do post the little guns and knives with a red slash through them sticker on their doors...more places than you probably realize. In most cases, it's not as easy as the cliche' answer of "just go somewhere else" as the store/restaurant may be on of a kind.

Technically speaking though, a large percentage of these commie stickers are not legal and/or have no weight in the court since they do not explicitly follow the guidelines set by state law for posting such a notice. Most of them say simply "no dangerous weapons allowed" instead of the required "no concealed weapons allowed." I've seen the specific verbiage somewhere before, but can't find it right now. The sticker commonly posted is preventing open carry, not concealed...AS LONG AS the place is not one already covered under state law as a no-carry (open or concealed) establishment or event.

I know i am very late on this but it popped up in a google search so just in case anyone was wondering...

Metallisteve hit the nail on the head . Sure there are a ton of places that have signs up but as long as you are carrying it concealed, it is really none of their business. My local gas station has a sign on the door written on a piece of copy paper in sharpie.

The most important thing you should worry about is government property/law enforcement and places where alcohol is being consumed (like bars). You don't have to worry about getting in trouble for taking your firearm anywhere like family gatherings or parks because chances are, you will never have to use it there.

It's your firearm and your life, as long as you are being responsible, you will never have anything to worry about.

Wow. Did you really need three separate posts to go on a rant about where you can/can't carry? I would agree that I would like to carry in many more places but that doesn't exclude the need for a permit if you ever want to keep a weapon in the car, etc.
