After 7 1/2 month... LTC in the mail

   / After 7 1/2 month... LTC in the mail #61  
My understanding from friends in neighboring counties is that the wait time is determined by the county sheriff. My county just happens to be eons.

A buddy wanted a pistol. He said to me "I'm going to buy that pistol tomorrow." I just smiled. The next day, he came by my house and showed me his new pistol! I couldn't believe it.

In Randolph county, he got his permit same hour.

In Guilford, it has been almost a year now, and I don't know about my pistol permits because I gave up. I did call every week for 6 weeks before I gave up. I got upset about it, but my line in the sand was going to be the CCW permit. Deny that, and I will hire a lawyer to find out exactly why and get it reversed. My CCW permit rolled in around day 70, and I was able to use it to buy any of the pistols I wanted.

Doesn't that just suck?.. why should a county official in one county, let you exercise your 2nd amendment rights easily and one in another county do their best to deny you your rights.. It was the same way here when we had the pistol permit process, there were counties you could go and walk in, and walk out in less than an hour with permit in hand, and others (like the one I lived in at the time) took 3 days no matter what, and another (St. Louis county) that it was nearly impossible to get a permit. That just isn't right, and should not be. Fortunately now we have "done away with" the pistol permit process entirely. And we are a better state for it.

Yes sir, it certainly does. I doubt seriously that a sheriff gets more political support for being a local tyrant than he draws scorn from those who he delays and hassles without cause or reason.

James when we still had the "Permit to Acquire", I spent quite a bit of time at various Sheriffs' Offices and observed on quite a few occasions a Sheriff deny someone a permit because he simply did not like them and told them so. On one occasion a man was told (paraphrased) "And don't send your wife, momma or daddy to get one for you because I won't give them one either". Yep much better now.

There is a conservative radio talk show host that was appologizing to his listeners last week. He voiced his support for a certain judge during the election. This judge has not signed a single gun permit since being in office. The talk show host says that he will lead the charge to have this judge out in the next election.

As a general rule in east Tn "the good ol boy system " is alive and well ! Many of the local governments are corrupt at best and more than a few local county clerks have been arrested for embezzlement . Around here if your friends with the long term local families you get whatever you want and when you want it .

It's completely ridiculous. I'm somewhere around day 100 (I quit counting) on a 90 day wait. I called yesterday and they said they have to resubmit paperwork for medical records to a hospital I have never been to. So at least two more weeks and probably another bill to pay for the nonexistent records. Typical bureaucratic nonsense, they don't care if the records exist or not, just that's what they do whether it makes sense or not.

I don't really have a problem with a system that does background checks and due diligence before someone is allowed to posses a firearm. Actually I think there should be a reasonable waiting period. However, I think the way some govt and local police/sheriff drag out the process is ridiculous.. And should not be legal.

It is amazing that even in supposed "shall issue" states they will find new hoops that people need to jump through to be law abiding.
