Who is “The Gun Industry”? North Carolina People at the USCCA Concealed Carry Expo, Part 4

My fellow United States Concealed Carry Association Concealed Carry Expo attendees from North Carolina might have been wondering when they were going to get a shout out as part of “The Gun Industry” (see Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3). Well, here we go. One of the first concealment holsters I ever bought was … Continue reading

History of Concealed Carry in North Carolina, Part 6: Dumb Legislative Tinkering (1919-1935)

From the 1919 Consolidated Statutes of North Carolina to the publication of the Code of North Carolina in 1935, only minor and somewhat humorous (depending on one’s perspective on government) changes were made to the law banning the carrying of concealed weapons in the state. In 1923, two pieces of legislation was passed amending Sec. … Continue reading

History of Concealed Carry in North Carolina, Part 5: Modification and Consolidation of Ban (1883-1919)

I have previously reviewed the right to keep and bear arms under the North Carolina State Constitution, its amendment to permit the legislature to regulate concealed carry, the legislature’s subsequent 1879 ban on concealed carry, and two legal challenges to the ban in the early 1880s.

History of Concealed Carry in North Carolina, Part 4: Challenging the 1879 Ban

History of Concealed Carry in North Carolina, Part 3: The 1879 Ban

As noted yesterday, in its 1875 Constitutional Amendments, North Carolina gave its General Assembly the ability to enact “penal statutes against” the practice of carrying concealed weapons. Not surprisingly, having given themselves the Constitutional green light, it was not long before the North Carolina General Assembly did just that. In on July 1, 1879 it … Continue reading

History of Concealed Carry in North Carolina, Part 2: Anti-Concealed Carry Constitutional Amendment (1875)

As discussed in my previous post, North Carolina’s 1868 convention modified the state’s constitutional language concerning the right to bear arms by incorporating language concerning a “well-regulated militia” from the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. In 1875, however, North Carolina Democrats (Conservatives) conspired to call another convention to roll back some … Continue reading
