Bill summary

Under current law, GS 14-269.2 provides a prohibition against carrying a concealed weapon on campus or other educational property but also identifies exemptions from the prohibition against concealed firearms on campuses and other educational property in subsection (g).

Enacts a new subdivision (8) under GS 14-269.2(g) to provide that a person registered under GS Chapter 74C as an armed security guard is exempt from the concealed firearm prohibition when that person is acting in the discharge of the guard's duties and with the permission of the college, university, or superintendent of the local school administrative unit. Requires the college, university, or superintendent to provide a list of the armed security guards employed by the college, university, or public school upon request from any law enforcement agency, and to update the list as necessary. Provides that a person whose name is not included on the list provided to a local law enforcement agency is not guilty of a criminal violation of this section because the person's name is omitted from the list, as long as the person satisfies the criteria of this subdivision.

Effective December 1, 2015.
