Do You Still Need a NC Concealed Carry Handgun Permit?  YES!

Many believe that the North Carolina House approved an Omnibus Gun Changes bill and it is now law. This is NOT the case!

These are some important points to consider:

  • IF a bill passed the Senate and was signed by the Governor, permitless carry would become the law in NC.

  • IF permitless carry is ratified as passed by the House, 18 year old NC citizens will be able to carry a concealed handgun much like they can carry an open handgun today. Citizens must be 21 years old to apply for a NC CCH permit.

  • Restrictions on carrying at places that charge admission, that sell and serve alcohol, educational property, courthouses, posted government buildings, posted private property, etc. are still in effect  AND the same exceptions for CCH Permit holders will still apply.

  • With or without  permitless carry, the CCH Permit issued by the State of NC will continue to meet the requirements for handgun purchases negating the need for obtaining additional handgun purchase permits.

  • Currently there are 36 states that recognize the NC CCH permit. There is no reason to believe that this will change significantly with the passage of a permitless carry bill.
