    CCP Wait Times?

    I reside in Guilford County and I read somewhere that one of the changes that was made along with the Castle Law on Dec. 1 of 2011 was that they were cutting down the waiting period to issue a Concealed Carry Permit from 90 days to 45 days. I was just wondering if this is true or not.

    Perhaps someone is confusing the VA law wherein a time limit of 45 days is imposed.

    I am unaware if NC has an actual statute relating to this.
    I'm sure others will chime in to clarify.

    According to the site listed below, it's the gun permit that's been lessened in wait time.

    Sheriffs now have 45 days to issue or deny concealed handgun permits

    It was one of several things that GRNC's Castle Doctrine law, in effect since 12/1/11 did.

    Funny thing, I just called a few hours ago to make an appt.! From what I was told, it takes 45 days to process once all your medical records are received by the sheriff and are being reviewed.

    Medical records? I still haven't looked into getting the CHP yet, but I've been thinking about it. I never knew they required medical records?

    Yep that's right. Just found it myself after reading the links above:

    " 14-415.15. Issuance or denial of permit.
    (a) Except as permitted under subsection (b) of this section, within 45 days after receipt of the items listed in G.S. 14-415.13 from an applicant, and receipt of the required records concerning the mental health or capacity of the applicant, the sheriff shall either issue or deny the permit. The sheriff may conduct any investigation necessary to determine the qualification or competency of the person applying for the permit, including record checks.
