Yeah, they should definitely know better... CCW is a crime in NC. Only Missouri calls theirs a CCW and it's actually an endorsement on your driver's license. They could also reword "Carry Concealed Process" to something like "Obtaining a Concealed Handgun Permit". I wish NC had a uniform process for obtaining a CHP so that no matter what county you live in, it's the same process everywhere.
I decided to apply for my permit for the same reason as you. It's nice to be able to carry concealed in the car and I won't have to worry about my jacket covering in the winter.
