Seeking Infomation on Resident Requirements
This will be the last update to this file. I think we have everything I was looking for. Thanks Everyone.
I am seeking information on the lengh of time that you must be a resident of a state before you can apply for a Resident Permit/License to carry a firarm. Many times it states that you must be a resident but gives no time period in the CCW/CHL informatiom or laws for the state. I believe that some states you are a resident as soon as you obtain a Drivers License or State Issued ID for that state. A link to a state site that states the time period would be appreciated if possible. Any assistance you can give me in this matter would be greatly appreciated. This is just more information I am collecting that may be added to the data base at Handgunlaw.us in the future. Thank You and Stay Safe,
