    The information you asked about should have been discussed in your Concealed Carry class. Review the handouts from your class.

    In addition to the Attorney General's site, there is also Grass Roots North Carolina which provides NC specific information and is involved in the politics of getting stupid laws and ordinances changed in NC.

    You should join and, if possible, participate in their efforts.

    http://www.grnc.org/

    Anyway if the business / property owner conspicuously posts a no concealed carry notice you are invited to leave or leave the weapon elsewhere.

    The very few signs I've seen here in VA are pretty darn small. Wachovia just has a revolver with a slash through it, about 2" across, off to the side.

    Never seen one.

    Threads like these make me glad I live between the left coast and the Rockies.

    Does it matter? Are you so worried about being in compliance with everybody else's wishes? Do you imagine you'll be "better off" if you obey the sign? Will you always obey "laws" that are immoral, nonsensical or directly contrary to the Constitution? Are you determined to "boycott" and to inform of your "boycott" any and every business which posts such signs?

    My answer to this and similar questions will always be:

    Carry at all times unless some external "detector" makes such impractical or impossible, due to the inconvenience or other difficulty encountered in explaining yourself to agents of "the state".
    I either avoid such circumstances, or endure them as little as needs be (such as when testifying in court).
    The paper "legality" of CCW at any particular place or time is an effort by lawmakers to restrict the potentially-injurious actions of violent sociopaths. Unfortunately, those efforts simply don't work, and criminal sociopaths don't obey those laws.
    If you are a morally-upright, courageous, mentally-stable and sensible person, you have fulfilled the SPIRIT of the law, since you are no danger to the innocent.
    If you carry discreetly and don't draw attention to yourself, no one will know if you are armed or not, and no one will be harmed by your discreet CCW, yet you WILL be capable of an armed response if a deadly threat requiring such appears.
    Post office? Hospital? School? What difference does it really make?
    Understand, I'm NOT advocating ANYTHING LIKE wanton disobedience to authority or disregard for rule. I'm speaking of MORAL issues which both underlie and supercede codified laws.
    Some folks may find this beyond their comprehension, though those of us who have done this for decades, and have thought through the moral principles involved have no difficulty with the concept.
