A Message from Affordable Arms: "Storage of Firearms to Protect Minors”

"It is unlawful to store or leave a firearm that can be discharged in a manner that a reasonable person should know is accessible to a minor."- North Carolina General Statute 14-315.1. A legal owner or possessor of a firearm is responsible for the security and safe storage of said firearm. Should a person allow a minor to take possession of a firearm by way of failing to secure the firearm, that person is ultimately responsible for whatever actions are taken by the minor, both criminally and civilly. Education on the proper use and safe handling of firearms to minors are a good idea for parents to consider. However, proper storage and security of firearms is the best option for any gun owner with minors in their household.
This is just one of the laws you can learn concerning weapons with Affordable Arms’ NC Concealed Carry Handgun Certification Course. Cost is $100 and includes 8 hours of instruction.
