As of October 1, 2013, North Carolina restaurants face a choice. A new state law allows concealed carry permit holders to bring concealed weapons into North Carolina bars and into restaurants that serve alcohol. These are the restaurants where we eat with our families, our loved ones, our colleagues and our associates. However, restaurant and bar owners may preserve a gun-free environment by posting a “conspicuous notice” that prohibits firearms.
The North Carolina Gun Free Dining Guide allows you to find a safe, gun free place to dine, and also serves as a portal for citizens like yourself to let others know where they can dine gun free.
