We're traveling to Asheville NC and then to TN in a few weeks, and I plan on taking my handgun.  I know those states have reciprocal carry laws with TX, but what else do I need to know, specifically about storefront verbiage?  

In TX it's easy.   There are 3 signs you have to look out for:


  • 51% - means the establishment derives more than half its revenue from liquor sales, so carrying a firearm is prohibited.  
  • 30.06 - specific verbiage prohibiting concealed carry
  • 30.07 - specific verbiage prohibiting open carry

A lot of businesses display the 30.07 but not the 30.06, which means they don't want open carry, but concealed is fine.   Some places have both, which means they are advertising that they're a soft target.  

Signs stating "No firearms on premise" or with a picture of a handgun with a slash through it have no meaning.  I ignore those, but pay careful attention to the 30.06 and 30.07 signs.  

Does anyone know how that all works in TN and NC?   @DunkingDan @Drew4UTK

Thanks.

There are several links here that should have sufficient info Click here
President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

The signs are different in nc... If you see anything denoting no carry, it has to be honored.  The handgun with the cross over is the most popular...  You can carry in a restauraunt that sells booze no problem, but you cant drink.  If you get "detained" which can mean pulled over, the first words out of your mouth should be "I have a permit to carry concealed and there is a weapon (wherever weapon is) or there is not a weapon.  You can now be in possession of a firearm on campus, but it has to be locked inside a container also locked in your vehicle. 

Most places are not going to infringe your rights to carry in either TN or NC.

It's ridiculous that you have to go through all this to exercise your rights.

I respect the right of a business to tell me I can't walk in with a loaded handgun, no matter how stupid I think it might be.  That's very different than the government telling me I can't defend myself.  Personally if I were the owner of a business, I would give a discount to anyone who showed me their LTC card, much as diners give discounts to cops.  I also have a right to own a dog, but I know I'm not welcome to bring my dog into most grocery stores and restaurants.   That's between me and the business, not by fiat of government decree.

The legal signage in TN on any business where firearms aren’t allowed should be this:
Black pistol, red circle around it, and a red line crossing. The sign should say “No Firearms Allowed” and have the statute below that.

If the business has a sign that says “No Guns” and you go in with your side piece they have the right to ask you to leave or put it in your vehicle. If you don’t do either they can call the police and have you removed.

If a business has no signage then you can conceal carry or open carry. TN doesn’t differentiate between those options regarding your right to carry.

As mentioned you can carry in a restaurant that serves alcohol but you can’t drink.

I think the sign should say "Mass Murderers welcome - Nobody armed..."

I was thinking on some point of law there was a major difference in the carry laws but I could be confusing it with some other state (not Maryland on NJ) that I occasionally travel though.

President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”
