If a business does not allow concealed weapons, does the owner have to ask someone carrying a concealed weapon to leave before calling law enforcement?

F.T. Norton

Under North Carolina concealed carry law, if a private property owner has a sign conspicuously posted prohibiting weapons then a permit does not authorize a person to carry a concealed handgun there.

Any person who is found to be carrying a concealed handgun in violation of that provision is guilty of an infraction and may be required to pay a fine of up to $500 or in lieu of fine, surrender the permit.

The law does not state a property owner has to request someone leave before calling law enforcement.
