Traveling from FL to NC via Car

Hello All,

I am a FL CCW holder and I will be traveling thru GA and SC to NC for business. All three of these states honor my CCW, as a concealed gun permit. Please advise me if any unique laws pertaining to me carrying in those three states. I know the obvious (no: gov't buidlings, schools, ect.) Must I inform law enforcement if contacted? Resturant carry details?
Thanks,
Rob

Packing.org or usacarry or handgunlaws.us has answers to your questions.

You shouldn't have to worry unless you were taking I95 up to Maryland, it's at that point your gun rights end and Communism begins.....

I think once upon a time I read about an app that you could put your route in, or the states you travel to, and it would crank out the regulations. Anyone else hear of that, or did I just make that up?

Back in the day, Packing.org was the "go to" resource for ccw laws. Nowdays, I always check handgunlaw.us first.

Neither SC or NC will allow you to carry in a restaurant that serves alcohol. Something both states need to fix ASAP!

GA is good to go regarding firearms. You can carry a loaded handgun in your glovebox without a permit, no problem.

check the "Travelers Guide for 2013"... i did the same trip in December from FL to the Highlands, NC. please verify, but i think GA and NC require you to inform a police officer if carrying, as in a traffic stop, FL only requires admission if Police officer asks you.... totally technical, be smart...

Another vote for handgunlaw.us


It's by far the most up to date source for travel info and state specific laws. Print out the info for each state you'll be traveling to and take it with you. It also has links to the state provided websites so you can verify info.

In NC, no carrying in any place that serves alcohol, and no carrying in any place that charges admission.
