    will i be denied

    I just turned in my application to purchase a handgun today. But I am worried that I might get denied. Two years ago I got a drug parapheniala charge because of a pipe and less than a half ounce bc the pipe had resin in it but just a pipe was found. I was not convicted of anything it was dropped, but the ticket still shows up should this matter? I live in rRaleigh nd any info would be a helpful.

    If your state's CHL statutes rely upon accusations instead of convictions, you might have good cause to be concerned. Likely though, you won't have troubles if convictions are the standard for application.

    What do you state's CHL application/qualification statutes say?

    First and foremost, I'm not a lawyer.

    Second, I'm not sure if this will help your or not, but I'll share a short story with you anyways. A guy I took my CWP class with here in SC - was charged with simple possession of marijuana, also had two Oxycontin's on him, and a pistol on him (these were all in NC and he was 20 yrs old - so wasn't able to possess a pistol, but it wasn't a stolen one) - He completed the SC CWP class and was also granted his SC CWP license.

    If you're asking only of being denied the ability to purchase a handgun then I would say probably not too. But read up on your state's laws and you should at least know how it is likely to turn out for you. Good luck and welcome to the forum.

    This isn't a state regulated process if you're talking about a pistol purchase permit. You are at the mercy of the sheriff and what he deems good character. Best you can do is wait and see.

    Don't be surprised if you are turned down though.

    Your only recourse would be to possibly apply for your concealed handgun permit which the sheriff has far less room for personal interpretation. That would allow you to purchase handguns without a pistol purchase permit. The fairly recent drug charge may be a sticking point though.

    A Google search for "North Caroline state statutes" comes up with the links.

    Here's a place to start, though, for a decent overview: HandgunLaw.us. Keep in mind that it's only a start. It's not what your state will be relying upon; it's merely a best-guess summary. Always go back to the statutes themselves. Also consider that case law matters, as well.

    Keep in mind, this is just my opinion and I'm just speaking from a friend's experience (the one I mentioned before). His charges were all reduced down to misdemeanors since the gun didn't come back as stolen.

    Once he turned 21, he was able to purchase a handgun (from a shop (not private sale) where they do background checks, with no problem whatsoever) and even got his SC CWP permit back before I did!

    It just talks about felonies and even if was convicted its a misdemeanor but it was dropped. I just don't want that one mistake to keep me from owning a pistol! So if u get a concealed to carry permit u don't have to have the purchasing permit?

    I'm not a lawyer, so don't take my word as gospel - but if you don't have a felony or a domestic violence charge (even if it's just a misdemeanor) - you should be good to go bro.

    If you get a NC concealed handgun permit you do not need to get the pistol purchase permits from the sheriff any longer. The CHP can be used in place of a pistol purchase permit. Sheriffs can deny a pistol purchase permit for about any reason they feel is is adequate. They have far more leeway to deny a purchase permit than they do for a CHP.

    I think you are probably OK, but be sure to answer all disclosure questions on your application truthfully. The worst thing that anyone can do as far as disclosures are concerned is to not tell the truth.

    I strongly suspect that you're fine but I'm not in the same state. Mere accusations are usually irrelevant, unless the charge is domestic violence. There just an allegation can harm you.
