Please re-read the OP. This thread is not about CCW it's about open carry on/in private property therefore, no. NC has no law against open carry but some jurisdiction have restrictions on "display of firearms" and no signage requirements so it would be prudent to keep up with local laws. A firearm sitting on an otherwise empty seat in a private vehicle is not concealed carry in N.C.Um, are you actually advocating violation of CCW laws?
To answer your scenario specifically:Do you carry your tactical Mossberg into the local Wally World just because you have a right to bear arms?
Since that's not illegal where I live, sure, especially if the other option is to leave them in an open air jeep. I guess it could also be mentioned that both my Mossbergs are always in cases when they leave the house just as my M&P40 is always in a holster, CCW or otherwise. Also, the Wally World in one local town has asked that open carry not be practiced on their property in response to the actions of two irresponsible kids who carry guns openly without cases or holsters (also not illegal), so I understandably comply in that circumstance.
I hope that clarifies my position.
P.S. EMTCOP, such condescending posts. "If, as you state, you're really" a cop you might want to make friends with enidpd804 who seems to have a grasp of his duty to the citizens he serves.
P.P.S. Quite a few of the posts in this thread sound like campaign slogans for the Brady Campaign. Of course your opinions are welcome here but please realize this is a handgun related forum there may be anti-gun-control opinions. If you're not familiar with gun-control laws, take some time to look them up. At least do a rudimentary Google search before guessing at the facts.
