    I still want to see a US Right to Carry.

    No Application, no Permit, no Nothing.

    Would Trump have the power to implement this?

    Maybe the Sheriff would like to give up HIS gun?! Remember this at reelection time folks!

    My understanding is that in NC permission from the sheriff is needed to buy a handgun. Once the purchase permit is issued, it's good for a year and 5 handgun purchases, before needing another.

    In addition, like many other states, a CCW permit is required to carry concealed. Requirements include several hours of class work and also some range time.

    I do not approve of these requirements, just explaining what I understand them to be.

    NC does extend reciprocity to most other states' CCW permits, as long as that individual is not a NC state resident.

    In light of the pandemic, I can understand the pause on range time. I don't think range time is needed (in my perfect, imaginary world), and I think the risk is low, or can be managed, but I understand why that could be a problem.

    Most of the issue is with people's poor planning.

    It's not a permit to own a handgun, it's a permit to buy one. Have to have one for each one you buy from a dealer.

    Only need one permit issued to buy - it is good for five years. At least that is the way it is/was in Onslow County (NC) not sure what it is here in Moore County. Concealed carry is of course a separate money sucking machine on top of paying for the permit to buy (paying a fee for the Sherriff Dept's admin services of course - because paying taxes for the Sherriff to provide services is not enough).

    Requesting Permission and Paying admin fees to exercise our Constitutionally 'protected' guaranteed 'rights'.... errrrrrrgh!!!!!

    Talked to a lgs owner yesterday, he told me the big majority of people buyingan trying to buy hand guns an rifles at his store were hippies, tree hugger types an were fussing about having to wait an get permits an all that. Sorta funny, they are the ones that voted for this crap to begin with.
    However complicated the issues become... it comes down to one simple question. Which is more important to you Life or Liberty? I've made my decision long ago.

    Sounds like a permit to conceal carry not to buy.
