Yesterday Governor Beverly Purdue (Democrat) signed the Omnibus Gun bill
As of December 1, 2011:
"§ 14-415.24. Reciprocity; out-of-state handgun permits.
(a) A valid concealed handgun permit or license issued by another state is valid in North Carolina."

Provisions about reciprocity were removed from this section. All Pistol permits issued in Suffolk county are concealed handgun permits and "should" be valid in NC after Dec 1, as well as non-resident PA, FL, UT, CT etc.

Some other provisions of this new law:
-Concealed carry is allowed in state parks
-Machine Guns/Silencers are more explicitly allowed if approved by the BATFE
-Castle Doctrine extended to home building and work building and extended to civil litigation
-Municipalities can restrict carry only in municipal owned buildings and recreational facilities limited to "a playground, an athletic field, a swimming pool, and an athletic facility", the rationale cited in the legislative discussion was otherwise minor league parents will kill each other all the time. In both cases (municipal buildings, recreational faclities) notice has to be posted at the entrance
-The sheriff now has 45 days rather than 90 days to approve or deny a resident carry permit.
-Concealed carry at a state owned rest stop allowed
-Drinking alcohol or having alcohol or other controlled substance is not allowed while carrying except if the controlled substance in the blood was lawfully obtained and taken in therapeutically appropriate amounts.amounts or if the person is on the person's own property

Some things that were originally in the law but because of opposition by the North Carolina Senate Republican leadership were removed because business and other interests objected:
- Employee storage of firearms in cars in employer parking lots
- Carry in a restaurant that serves alcohol.
- prohibition on confiscation of firearms in an emergency

Note that North Carolina is an open carry state (no permit needed to carry openly) and that concealed carry of dangerous weapons (including daggers, etc.) and firearms on your own premises does not require a license in that state. (The open carry part is not as good as people think because there is a common law crime of causing "affray" in NC which can get you into trouble if you openly carry in a busy area and someone objects)
In addition the owner of a private premises can post a notice prohibiting concealed handguns by posting a conspicuous notice.
Concealed/open carry is also prohibited at Schools, state or federal owned buildings

Carry into a restaurant that serves alcohol is still banned.

Technically speaking, the Nassau County, or any other non "PREMISES ONLY" NYS permit should be valid, not just Suffolk.

Glad to see that they are cleaning up some of their problems with their gun laws.  North Carolina has been known as the "New York of the South" when comparing their laws with the other states down there.

"New York of the South" for other reasons as well. I know more people that moved to North Carolina from Long Island in the past several years than to any other location. There is a huge population of recently transplanted New Yorkers.
My good friend lives in Cary which ironically has some quirky carry laws.
The rest of NC is pretty good gun-law wise. A great place to live for the value as well.

You could always visit :) Better still you could move.

See my "Location" on the left.
Surprising, since that state has a great many relocated Yankees from these parts. Isn't the knickname of Cary Catholics And Relocating Yankees ?
