Major Victory for Gun Permit Appeals

On April 17, 2018, in a major victory for gun permit applicants, The NC Court of Appeals ruled that the Constitution requires that they be informed of the specifics behind their denial and have an opportunity to challenge the denial in court. In that case, The Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office issued their usual bare-bones denial of the application, without notice of the exact nature of the basis for the denial or any opportunity to be challenge that basis. The applicant appealed the Sheriff's decision to the District Court which then denied the appeal, also without affording him an opportunity to be challenge the basis. The Court of Appeals held that an applicant who is denied a permit must be provided notice of the precise grounds for the sheriff's denial and the information alleged in support. This process must then be followed by an opportunity to contest the matter in a hearing in District Court. Talk to an experienced lawyer who can represent you in your Gun Permit Appeal. By law, you have only one chance to get it right; there is no appeal from the court's decision.
