I was reading the link that kreyzhorse provided. It looks like if you are the driver you would need to comply with this ordinance. My question is what about me, as the passenger, and being approached to go sit in the patrol car?
To possess a concealed handgun in North Carolina, you must:
* Carry your permit and a valid form of identification with you at all times.
* Disclose the fact that you have a valid concealed handgun permit when you are approached or addressed by any law enforcement officer in North Carolina.
* Inform the officer that you are in possession of a concealed handgun.
* Present both the permit and valid identification at the request of an officer
NOTE: You should not attempt to display either your weapon or your permit unless directed to by an officer.
