Ask Before You Eat
On October 1, 2013 North Carolina bars and restaurants, even those that serve alcohol, began allowing permit holders to carry their concealed handguns on the premises UNLESS the owner posted a “conspicuous notice” prohibiting them.
North Carolina citizens now need to ask their servers if the places we enjoy taking our families out to eat or socialize allow loaded, concealed guns. Many restaurant owners are unaware of the new law or have not thought about how they will deal with it.
NCGV is committed to helping families eat without constantly wondering if other patrons are carrying concealed weapons. Here are some ways to get involved:
NCGV is building a list of North Carolina restaurants choosing to post against concealed weapons. View the growing list here.
