Here are the provisions of the law that will go into effect Oct. 1, 2013:
  • Allows Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP) holders to lawfully carry their personal protection firearm into a restaurant that serves alcohol, provided they do not consume alcohol.
  • Removes the prohibition on CHP holders from carrying into a place where tickets are sold for admission.
  • Fixes the problem of anti-gun localities overstepping their authority regarding restricting CHP holders from carrying firearms into locally controlled parks.
  • Allows CHP holders to transport their personal protection handguns in their motor vehicle while on all school property, as well as allow them to store those handguns in their locked vehicles while parked on school property.
  • Ensures the privacy of CHP holders by allowing access to the database of permittees only for law enforcement purposes.
  • Removes the prohibition on CHP holders carrying their personal protection firearms during a parade or funeral.
  • Brings North Carolina in compliance with the standards set forth in the federal NICS Improvement Amendments Act (NIAA) of 2007—a critical mental health reform.
  • Removes the prohibition on using firearms with sound suppressing devices while otherwise lawfully hunting game.

  1. What about in trucks where the glove box does not lock? Where is the weapon to be stored in a truck?

    1. I assume to be legal you could put it in a Sentry Safe 1100 or something comparable. I got mine years ago at Lowe's for about $20. Just checked and still the same price. http://www.lowes.com/pd_218916-254-1100_0__?productId=3024948

    2. It doesn't say locked in a glove box, etc., it says locked vehicle. I would assume that means that you lock your truck doors. Locks only keep out honest people anyway.

  2. I am confused over the glove box issue. The only place I see mentioned of anything "locked" was the following statement. And if that's the case, why isn't a "Locked truck" good enough? why do you need a locked glove box also?
    "Allows CHP holders to transport their personal protection handguns in their motor vehicle while on all school property, as well as allow them to store those handguns in their locked vehicles while parked on school property. "

  3. works for me..my only concerns would be "some' sheriff's epatments of doing or pulling a IRS meaning they'd give folks they may not approve of personally for what ever the reason..give those "applications extra scrutiny" ..after all they'd claim is as done in the name of public safety you know..

    1. Just get it from FL. They will send you the forms which you fill out, get fingerprinted at your local PD, and if you have a DD214, then that is all you need with the fee to send back. They accept the DD214 in lieu of a gun class.
