Thread: moving to North Carolina

  1. NC recognizes a permit from any state. If you have a permit, the firearm can be concealed in the car without issue. If you are pulled over, you must inform the officer that you have a permit and that you have a firearm in the car. They will most likely ask where and you need to tell them. It is only if you do NOT have a permit that the firearm must be visible.

    I'd look into it further, whenever I'm in NC my gun is on me as my permit is valid there, may be the best option. BUT my opinion would be that it doesn't matter where it is, as you have permission to conceal a gun in NC already. Seems most of people's issues in NC is walking the line of "concealing" without permits.

    Found this while looking, seems good just not sure if it went into affect yet.

    Thanks! I carry in the center console usually when I'm in the car for 2 reasons...1) because if I'm wearing a seatbelt it's easier to get to there and 2) in SC we don't have to notify if the gun is not on our person.

    While in NC, your SC permit is honored, and you have all the privileges and restrictions that I have with my NC CHP. My CHP allows me to conceal in my vehicle, in my reach, center console, under the seat, or door pocket.

    House votes to relax gun laws in NC :: WRAL.com
    HB937 has passed the house and the senate. It is now back in the house for a concurrence vote. The senate added a provision for the repeal of the Pistol Purchase Permit requirement. The NC Sheriffs Association is now against it due to that. It is being held up for vote. Once it is voted on again by the house it will still have to go to the governor for his signature. We are promised that it will come to a vote before the legislative session ends but I am not holding my breath.
