Why were the “No Weapons Allowed” signs removed from an ABC store?

Photos.comQ. I noticed recently that the “No Weapons Allowed” signs been removed from the New Hanover ABC store on Castle Street? Who made the decision and when?

A. The signs for “No weapons allowed” were removed last week from New Hanover ABC stores because the board’s legal counsel determined ABC stores in the county and across the state cannot prohibit concealed carry permits on their premises, said Dan Sykes, the CEO for the New Hanover ABC Board.

According to the North Carolina General Statute 14-415.23, no political subdivisions, boards or agencies, can make laws restricting concealed carry.

Sykes said the county ABC board changed their employee handbook and removed the “no weapons allowed” signs last week.
