Who should issue Carry Permits
I've been thinking about who should issue Carry Permits (whatever they are called in your State.
Here in Virginia resident permits are issued by the local court, not the sheriff. In some local jurisdictions (prior to "must" issue) that created problems in some localities. Even recently, we had to "tie down" State law about the currency and source of approved training to stop some judges denials.
In many, if not most, places issue is done by the sheriff. Again that seems to create variation/inconsistency in application.
Is one approach better that the other?
Would a Statewide issuing agency be better?
