Is NC an open carry state, or isn't it? I hear all the mumbo-jumbo about "going armed to the terror of the public." As I read it, if ONE person sees you carrying openly and they get scared, you are screwed..... Now, I live in a fairly conservative area, and there have been a few times I went to the local Kangaroo for gas, gatorade, etc., open carrying and I have walked into the grocery store for something quick and did not wear concealment. I don't do it often, but once in a blue moon.... No one, not even in uniform LEO batted an eye..... Does anyone have a non-legalese explanation of it according to the NC general statutes? I have a CHP and do not want to stir up a hornet's nest.
