Protecting Gun Owners' Rights With Aggressive Legal Representation

Carrying a concealed firearm is a criminal offense unless you have a permit to carry issued by the sheriff of your county of residence. If you meet the statutory criteria for a concealed carry permit and the sheriff has denied your application, you may appeal to the district court in the county where you have applied for your concealed carry permit. Our Charlotte concealed weapon appeals lawyers can help you assert your rights and appeal the sheriff's decision to deny your permit.

Protecting The Rights Of North Carolinians In Conceal Carry Permit Appeals

In order to determine whether you have a valid case for appeal, our attorneys will investigate your claim starting with your eligibility under the concealed carry law. In order to qualify for a permit, the applicant must:

  • Be a United States citizen
  • Live in North Carolina for more than 30 days prior to applying
  • Be at least 21 years old
  • Not be a considered a danger to himself or herself or the public
  • Successfully complete a firearms safety course

If you meet all of these conditions, and are not otherwise disqualified, the sheriff must issue you the permit as required by state law. If he does not, he must provide the reason for the denial to you in writing within 90 days. The Knox Law Center will work with you to decide whether filing an appeal on your behalf to the district court in your county is a viable strategy.

Concealed Weapon Permit Revocation Appeals

In addition to denied application appeals and nonrenewal appeals, we can file appeals in district court against the revocation of your permit. Under North Carolina law, the sheriff can revoke a concealed carry permit under the following circumstances:

  • The initial application was approved based on fraud or misrepresentation.
  • The permit itself was misused in some way, such as duplicating it or giving it to someone else.
  • The permit holder has done something after receiving the permit that would have disqualified him or her prior to the initial application.
  • The permit holder committed a crime related to the concealed carry law.
  • The permit holder is convicted of a crime that would have disqualified him or her during the application process.
