State Representative Don Kopp says you shouldn’t need a concealed weapons permit if you don’t have a criminal record. Do you agree or do you think the permit should be required?
I know that when I went in to recieve my personal carry permit, I didn’t need to pass any particular test. Essentially I went in, applied, and the sherriff did a background check. A short time later I recieved my concealed carry permit. Since I never carry a concealed weapon and only had the permit in case my pistol was left under the seat after a day of shooting, I don’t see that it’s a big deal either way.
If someone is going to break the law by carrying a concealed weapon, I assume that individual wouldn’t have a problem avoiding a background check and permit fee.
