Visitors to North Carolina should familiarize themselves with state gun laws even though they are considered some of the most lenient in the nation.

North Carolina does not issue permits to nonresidents, but it does recognize permits from every other state as of Dec. 1, 2011, according to the North Carolina Department of Justice.

According to HandgunLaw.us, the following places are off limits to conceal carry even with permits include:
  • Schools, public or private, all levels including universities
  • State government and federal buildings
  • Law enforcement or correctional facilities
  • Public events
  • On any private premises where notice that carrying a concealed handgun is prohibited
Those who possess firearms can openly carry as well as carry a concealed handgun — as long as they possess a current and valid concealed handgun permit and identification— are permitted on state-owned game lands and all other lands, unless prohibited by the landowner. However, a person may not hunt with any firearm being carried unless the firearm is authorized as a lawful method of take for that particular open season.

While North Carolina gun laws are very permissive, "a permit does not authorize a person to carry a concealed handgun ... on any private premises where notice that carrying a concealed handgun is prohibited by the posting of a conspicuous notice or statement by the person in legal possession or control of the premises." So be aware of this possible restriction when entering private property.
