BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Several new laws went into effect in North Carolina Tuesday, one of which expands the number of places where some gun owners can take their weapons.
The list now includes restaurants, bars, schools and university campuses. The new law also allows concealed carry permit holders to take their guns into restaurants that serve alcohol, but gun owners aren't allowed to drink while they are inside.
Several restaurant owners in southeastern North Carolina, however, are keeping weapons out of their businesses.
The owner of Taylor Cuisine, Café, and Catering Inc. in Southport posted a sign on the front door of her business which reads "no guns allowed."
