I was in Canada last week and heard a great interview with a guy who spoke so well of all the reasons to allow people to carry - given proper checks. Among many reasons, the one that struck me the most was when he said to the interviewer (who was totally against CCW), "When was the last time you had a security check on your background ?", "You could have been arrested last week, last month or last year - I had a background check on me yesterday, and the day before that and the day before that !"
Wrong. You are checked at the time of application then and only then. Sounds good but it just aint so. No agency has the time or the inclination to keep continually checking on people. Its a waste of time.
He said they run checks on all permit holders and if they are arrested, the system picks them up and their license is revoked. It really turned the interviewer into a believer that CCW holders are in large part more upstanding citizens than the general public !
Sounds to me that he is going to believe whatever he wants to believe.
Is this the same process in the US ? Or is it that if you are arrested, your CCW is automatically revoked ? Pending the outcome of the charge ?
In most cases, not all.
If you are arrested for a parking ticket, probably not.
If you are arrested for any violent crime, probably so.
A lot of that depends on where you are at.
