...last I checked, the law in NC was no CCW in places where alcohol is sold and consumed. But the local paper had a story of some jackwagon who pulled his gun during an argument in a grocery store, and was arrested for: 1) Going armed to the terror of the public 2) Carrying a handgun in an establishment that sells alcohol Now this is from the NEWSPAPER, not official police records. But I don't see how they could have screwed up that badly unless that or something very close was what they were told themselves. Also, this store - like 99% of them in the general area - has a little deli area with some tables and chairs. I'm a teetotaler so don't laugh - I always assumed it would be frowned on for one to buy a bottle o' wine in the grocery store and then head over to the little "cafe" and proceed to down it. If not, I suppose that counts as selling alcohol to be sold and consumed? PS: Didn't see anything in the write-up about a charge for CCW without a permit. So unless he happened to be open-carrying, that'll be some great P.R. for the rest of us gun-packers... Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
