Jay has questions about concealed carry at the NRA convention.
Reading the law, it seems the NRA could allow attendees to carry at the convention, they just didn’t bother.
§ 14‑269.3. Carrying weapons into assemblies and establishments where alcoholic beverages are sold and consumed.
(a) It shall be unlawful for any person to carry any gun, rifle, or pistol into any assembly where a fee has been charged for admission thereto, or into any establishment in which alcoholic beverages are sold and consumed. Any person violating the provisions of this section shall be guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor.
(b) This section shall not apply to the following:
(1) A person exempted from the provisions of G.S. 14‑269;
(2) The owner or lessee of the premises or business establishment;
(3) A person participating in the event, if he is carrying a gun, rifle, or pistol with the permission of the owner, lessee, or person or organization sponsoring the event;
Number three seems to mean that the NRA could have allowed attendees to carry at the convention. I’m not ready to say the NRA intentionally didn’t allow concealed carry, but it doesn’t look good.
