Up until now, people wanting to get a pistol purchase permit or a concealed carry permit had to go to downtown Raleigh to apply and pay to get one. Raleigh! Us country folk don’t like the big city.
According to Wake County Sheriff, Donnie Harrison, the process just became easier for all those wanting to become a pistol packing mama.
Beginning Monday February 24, 2014 the Wake County Sheriff’s Office will offer a new service, for a nominal fee, that will make it possible to apply for a pistol purchase and concealed carry permits online.
This new service will be in addition to permit services presently offered by the Sheriff’s Office, at 330 South Salisbury Street in Raleigh and is intended to make the permitting process more convenient and less time-consuming for the consumer.
In Wake Forest during the past month there have been three arrests for carrying a concealed gun without a permit. Get a permit.
The exact link for this service is not yet available so readers will have to wait until the 24th and then visit www.wakegov.com/sheriff or call (919) 856-6949.
We suspect the link will appear near the bottom of the page somewhere between “Adopt a Pet” and “Pay Tax Bills.” Too bad there isn’t a link to carry a concealed pet. We’d be all over that one.
