The North Carolina Concealed Handgun Poster displays a “no” symbol over the image of a handgun and the text: “Carrying a concealed handgun is prohibited.” The poster also cites the relevant section of the North Carolina General Statutes.
The North Carolina General Statutes allow a person with a valid permit to carry a concealed handgun unless specifically prohibited by law. Licensees are not authorized to carry a handgun any place in which the person in legal possession or control of the premises has posted a notice which prohibits carrying a handgun.
Private businesses may wish to prohibit workers or the public from carrying a concealed handgun onto the premises for liability or public safety reasons. Post the North Carolina Concealed Handgun Poster to inform individuals of your policy and let them know that the law is behind you.
Posting Requirement for the North Carolina Concealed Handgun Poster
The North Carolina Concealed Handgun Poster must be conspicuously posted in order to prohibit the concealed carry of firearms on the premises (N.C. Gen. Stat. § 14-414.11). Display the poster at each entrance of the location at which firearms are prohibited.
