    Employment requirement for CC license?

    In some states, do the issuing authorities (sheriff, judge, city officer) require that an applicant have a gainful employment as one of the steps to receive a CC license?

    I notice CC application for upstate New York counties and New Hampshire ask for employer information.

    Would stating "unemployed" be grounds for rejection, especially in upstate NY & NH, due to concern about the applicant's attitude and "lack of" reputation gained from contacting employer to investigate the applicant's background? (Besides a few good references on my character; not related to "retired")

    Does holding a "respectable" employment matter to improve approval procession compared to, say, "laborer" or minimum wage job which may negate the examiner's impression that could lead to discrimination against the applicants with lesser "socioeconomic" standing?

    I have valid Utah resident license with FL non-res license pending, so it doesn't affect me. But in the other states, they may ask for information of the employer(s) to determine my "qualification" irrespective of me being a law-abiding citizen with "peon" status in the meantime.

    along the same lines,
    would "student" be considered appropriate?

    I have a Utah non-res permit too. On the application was a space for Employer. I put retired, which I am. I got my license.

    Georgia counties sometimes ask for your employer, although they can't require the information. At one time they "required" it, along with your SSN. A lawsuit put an end to such nonsense, although some counties still ask for the information and tell you that your background check will take longer or be denied without it.
    It won't.

    A friend who temporarily lived in Jackson County, Alabama said the local sheriff asked him if he had a job when he applied. That was almost ten years ago and I don't think that information is required there.

    Based upon the fact that you already will have two CCW licenses, I believe that question is not relevant.
    I wouldn't worry about it until it becomes a reality.
    Personally, I don't believe it's anyone's business. We all do SOMETHING to survive...whatever it is, put it down.

    It shouldn't have any bearing on being issued a permit. That being said "may issue" states give a lot of discretion to the issuing authority. Not sure about NH, but in NY if you knot your shoe laces right to left instead of left to right your liable to be denied. After all you know anyone who is on the right is a radical and not to be trusted with a gun.

    At least in Texas, the past is what will keep you from getting a permit, not what you might do in the future. Just because you are unemployed does not mean that you will now start a life of crime.

    I don't see what employment has to do with your being qualified, but in New York, anything is possible.

    But it sounds like another version of Bloomberg having his police in riot gear show up at your door and ask to see your gun paperwork so the neighbors know you have a gun in your house.

    "Do you think your employee John Smith sould have a CWL?"
    "No and as of now he no longer works for me if he plans on carrying a EVIL GUN"

    They keep trying to post CWL lists in the paper for the same reason.

    HOPE NOT. I don't have a "real" job to speak of, it's all volunteer for all 5 charities! Do you think "mom" would cover it?
