North Carolina has no law that requires the comprehensive registration of firearms throughout the state. However, the sheriff of each county must keep a record of all permits to purchase a handgun, including the name, date, place of residence, and age of each person to whom a permit is issued.1

See our Registration of Firearms policy summary for a comprehensive discussion of this issue.
