Hey everyone I am looking into getting a ccw permit here in North Carolina, but i have a few questions. I just would like to know where can I carry concelled? Can I carry walking down the street? Or carry in a restraunt? Or carry in places like walmart. I have read some of the laws for NC ccw and they tell me places I can not carry but I have had several people tell me that I can not carry when I am just walking down the street, but I have not seen any law that pertains to that. I know this might sound like a dumb question, but if you can help me out please do so thanks

Read the NC laws concerning where you can't carry, follow that and you should be fine. Other exceptions would be a business that has a posted "no firearm allowed" sign. I expect walking down the street you are legal simply because if it was illegal to carry on a public street that would exclude you from carrying anywhere as you have to use the street to get where your going. .

The CCW training is the prime place for learning these things, don't go with the cheapest guy automatically, you are equiping yourself to legally carry protection. You need to know the law, not just what Uncle Willie told you at the last reunion... As for here in S. Carolina, even if a business has a no weapons/no concealed weapons sign up, there are specific guidelines as to how large the sign, the lettering, the symbol, and even placement which make the sign official. Pretty interesting, if only these businesses knew what they were doing when they try to prevent the good guys from carrying.

As for the sign.. Taken from the State Law enforcement site...

SECTION 23-31-235. Sign requirements.

(A) Notwithstanding any other provision of this article, any requirement of or allowance for the posting of signs prohibiting the carrying of a concealable weapon upon any premises shall only be satisfied by a sign expressing the prohibition in both written language interdict and universal sign language.

(B) All signs must be posted at each entrance into a building where a concealable weapon permit holder is prohibited from carrying a concealable weapon and must be:

(1) clearly visible from outside the building;

(2) eight inches wide by twelve inches tall in size;

(3) contain the words “NO CONCEALABLE WEAPONS ALLOWED” in black one inch tall uppercase type at the bottom of the sign and centered between the lateral edges of the sign;

(4) contain a black silhouette of a handgun inside a circle seven inches in diameter with a diagonal line that runs from the lower left to the upper right at a forty five degree angle from the horizontal;

(5) a diameter of a circle; and

(6) placed not less than forty inches and not more than sixty inches from the bottom of the building’s entrance door.

(C) If the premises where concealable weapons are prohibited does not have doors, then the signs contained in subsection (A) must be:

(1) thirty six inches wide by forty eight inches tall in size;

(2) contain the words “NO CONCEALABLE WEAPONS ALLOWED” in black three inch tall uppercase type at the bottom of the sign and centered between the lateral edges of the sign;

(3) contain a black silhouette of a handgun inside a circle thirty four inches in diameter with a diagonal line that is two inches wide and runs from the lower left to the upper right at a forty five degree angle from the horizontal and must be a diameter of a circle whose circumference is two inches wide;
