The best advice Ive heard all day! "If you have the ability to get a CCW, get it, and, carry it with you however much you can." --HGKosteck
Its your right to protect yourself and your loved ones and its your right to have a gun . Its also your right to carry it on your person(where allowed) with a permit. I dont know about you but I like exercise my rights! I know I dont live in NC but it doesnt look like NC has to restrictive of a CCW laws. www.packing.org
In Louisiana you can carry in a liquor store as long as its allowed by the management. You can also carry in a Restaraunt as long as its primary source of income isnt alchohal. If I lived in NC I would try to obtain one!
