In summary, N.C. GS 14-269.2 allows persons with a valid North Carolina Concealed Handgun Permit to have a handgun in a locked compartment of a locked vehicle that is parked on college premises. The handgun cannot be taken out of the locked compartment while on any campus.
In other words, a person cannot “carry” a weapon of any kind while on a CPCC campus, unless he/she is a law enforcement officer.
CPCC students and employees should familiarize themselves with the College’s updated policies regarding weapons on campus. These can be found at:
These policies clearly state:
A firearm is permissible on College premises only under all of the following limited circumstances:
a. The firearm is a handgun; and
b. The individual has a valid concealed handgun permit or is exempt from the law requiring a permit; and
c. The handgun remains either in a closed compartment or container within the individual’s locked vehicle or a locked container securely affixed to the individual’s locked vehicle; and
d. The vehicle is only unlocked when the individual is entering or exiting the vehicle; and
e. The handgun remains in the closed compartment at all times.
Handguns are NOT permitted to be carried on College premises at any time.
Please take a look at the revised CPCC policies, and encourage your fellow students and colleagues to do the same.
