    In theory yes. However I don't know the logistics of how Indiana handles unpaid traffic cites. In Nevada, it would go to warrant. However, we do have amnesty days in Clark County NV at least once every couple of years where you can settle the warrant for the amount of the fine and all other costs and fines get tossed out by the County Clerk.

    Makes sense to me.

    A DUI conviction, you have done your time and paid your fine. Perhaps learned your lesson. Habitual offenders will not be issued in MI. Same thing with a misdeameaner drug conviction.

    But the courts and law enforcement take a much dimmer view of "Failer to Appear" or just not paying the fine.

    In MI, if you have a bench warrant from a different state, (and you may not be aware) you will not get a CPL.

    Same here in TN. My question still remains. If you passed the NICS check, you should be good to go. I would think that all warrants would show up in an NICS check regardless of severity. Using an extreme example, what if there was a warrant out for you for attempted murder with a deadly weapon? You would think that would show up on an NICS check, right?

    So, if that extreme case would show up, then the other less offensive would also, right?

    Okay-- just ran into this myself. I'm an Oregon resident, and had an application for a resident permit submitted to my local sheriff's office. A week after submitting the application, I got a nasty-gram from the Department of Revenue telling me they were going to garnish my paycheck for an unpaid parking ticket...to do this, they must issue a 'warrant'...which they did. I called the Sheriff's office, told them what was going on, and they told me that it would have zero effect-- that is, even if it showed up on the background check, it isn't something they would cite as a reason to deny a permit. The woman I spoke with sounded sort of annoyed by the question.

    So, at least in Oregon, it's nothing to worry about.

    re: my ticket!! VENT: drive me crazy, I paid the parking fee for the lot where I parked, but my permit was placed upside down on my dash, so they cited me, and when I tried to dispute wouldn't budge...yes, they had a copy of the check I wrote to park in the first place, yes they had their copy of the stub showing my license plate number, yes the permit was readable on my dash...so I let it ride, cost the state a ton of money to chase me over something I didn't do, and yet feel no satisfaction from costing them as much as they're getting out of me over this silly thing.

    Thanks for the info. I'm not sweating it too much. I just purchased another firearm over the weekend and the NICS check continues to pass. I can't imagine that if there was a warrant for me, that the NICS would clear me...I just can't.

    You might want to check on this ,starting in 2008 all states must run your liscence through homeland security database and if you have an outstanding ticket in another state your drivers liscence will not be renewed I'm from MI and was next in line when they were explaning it to some pour lady in front of me. I dont know if it will efect a ccw but it shure does effect your driveing.

  8. If your CCW in TN bounces, they will send you a letter and ask for documentation proving that it was cleared up. My wife slapped her ex quite a few years ago, was arrested but then cut loose with no further action. When they did the BG check, they saw the arrest and nothing else. It looked like the case was still pending. Turns out the court never filed the paperwork dropping the charges. When she called the court, they did it over the phone and sent the disposition paperwork, which we sent to the HCP people. Waiting for the final word now, but it should be fine now.

    I'd tend to agree though....If you are passing the NICS, there is probably no warrant, but that doesn't mean you won't get arrested if you get pulled over in that state.

    I am a retired police sergeant.

    There is a statute of limitations on everything except murder. Misdeneanors are 5 years, and felonies are 10 years. Only some states have criminal speeding, so it depends on how fast you were going.

    Also remember 11 years ago, courts were still transitioning to computers, so your ticket, depending on the size of the court, may not have made it into the system. Also, only certain jurisdictions, usually the small ones, actually issue warrants for traffic tickets, and the warrant is usually only extradiable from the surrounding counties.

    I wouldn't sweat it, and I certainly wouldn't bring it to their attention.

    Just my 2 cents.

    This is excellent insider news. Thanks!!!! I was only 5 MPH over, but it was on an Interstate through Indianapolis, so the town is quite large. I have NO INTENTION of bringing it to their attention...ever!
