I put all my paperwork in today. Thought everyone might find it interesting to see how the application process in RI differs from their neck of the woods. RI state legislature requires:
*Signiture of police chief from town of residency
*Letter from employer stating proper need
(Rhode Island rarely approves personal requests)
*Qualification in front of a NRA certified instructor
*Copy of license and birth certificate
*Three personal/professional references
*Address information from previous three years
*Notorized application form
And then wait...decision may take up to three months.
(Although my employer states that it should go through quicker)
The link is for the full form and the current RI CCW Laws for anyone that may be interested.
