    I received my CCW late last year and was required to pay $10 per Hospital for release/transfer of medical records to the sheriff's office. It may be a screening charge or it could be a records release charge.

    But it's feasible. I would follow NC Bullseye's advice and verify it.

    I'd originally looked for a home in Charlotte, and ended up going South to Columbia, SC, and I have to say it was the best decision I ever made.

    I've heard about this thing happening here. For some reason I have a real strong recollection that part of the fee that you pay is supposed to cover the costs of these checks, which makes me think it is double dipping. Yet another reason why I am opposed to farce that passes for medical care in this country.

    I got my permit last year in Chatham County. It states on the application "UNC Hospital contracts with another agancy to run the mental health report on each CCW application. This agency will be sending you a bill. The bill comes directly from teh contracting agency and not the Chatham County Sheriff's Office".

    The fee you are charged by the sheriff is for both state and county administration of the CHP program, not to cover what the medical records services charge to provide your med histories. Not all counties are being impacted by these charges since they are at the mercy of the local medical facilities decisions to charge or not and if they do, how much for this service. Of the $80 total for your first CHP (not counting the $10 for fingerprints) $35 goes to the county for their administrative costs and $45 goes to the state for their part.

    One of the forms most applicants for CHP fill out is an agreement to release all medical histories and to be financially responsible for any additional charges that may be incurred as a result of the medical services billing for records.

    It's not double dipping.

    Got my CCL in Forsyth County...have not been billed for anything (yet!!)..but I can see where this is going........

    Charges for every check...background, mental, health records, etc...etc...etc.......Can even see a 30 day waiting period for all checks to be completed and during those 30 days you would be required to pay for and submit a psychology evaluation form from a state approved psychologist stating your in good mental health. Where is it all going to end ?????
    There are two types of people who carry concealed weapons...Responsible ones and Irresponsible ones...which are you...

    Everyone's a little bit off home plate, it just depends on where the line is drawn. Sort of like the discussion about how many rounds in a magazine is too many, or how scary a rifle has to look before it can be banned. Takes more than some depression or anger to declare someone unfit. Probably need to be some history that your medication was to reduce your violent tendencies, or you had a history of terroristic threats, had attempted suicide, or were involuntarily committed ( hint: if the police take you to a mental hospital for evaluation you cant sign yourself out the way you can if YOU decide you need some help).

    Prescription history alone probably wouldnt hold up either. Doctors have been prescribing valium for stress/anxiety for so long that most folks dont know its a powerful muscle relaxant used to treat severe muscle spasms, epilepsy, etc. Many drugs are prescribed outside of the original approval of the drug, its getting more common all the time.

    KY doesnt do medical check, I doubt the feds do either since there was no medical consent to purchase any of my guns or during the application for the ccdw permit. Just a question asking me if I had ever been declared a mental etc. etc. Well ,no, not in truth, but if I WAS on the fringe I doubt I would see it that way.

    This still doesn't make it right. What I can see happening is that anti and RINO sheriff's like Barnes could use this as an under the radar means to impose excessive taxation on people who desire a permit by submitting record checks to many institutions who agree to charge exorbitant fees. Lets just throw one more piece of dry wood on the fire that is already starting to smolder in this nation and state

    They sent me to the local mental health facility to have my application certified
    that I had never been a patient there.

    They did it for free; but, I had to pay $5 for them to open the door and let me out.
