    Not sure about RI.....

    but welcome to the site and good luck on getting your CCW!

    I'm sure someone in here on the east coast can help you out.

    We need a little more information......

    Welcome aboard the 2A ship, Jrek. We could probably help you better with a bit more information. For example, if you handle lots of cash or similarly valuable merchandise i.e. jewelry, then you could submit a letter from your employer stating that fact. Even better if you make bank deposits.

    Good luck!

    Unhappy Sorry, Jrek. RI is a bit slippery with their terms.

    Well, even though RI terms its process "Shall Issue", because of the requirement to show need, it is in essence a "May Issue" state. Would your boss help you out with showing need?

    We are all trying to wrap our heads around that one, Jrek.

    I would leave off the "doing evictions" part (why, he is an armed guy going looking for trouble) and stress the "clean outs of foreclosed properties" part (he was just doing his job when this irate former homeowner came looking for trouble). Other than that, it sounds like a plan. Incidentally, if you don't already, I would ask your family member to let you help with at least one real clean out. Just make sure it is not my house!

    I believe what jrek was trying to say was: If it is a constitutional right, how can he be denied? You might ask that of the legislators in Wisconsin and Illinois. they are the only two staes, taht according to the permit map, do not issue permits in any case.

    Unfortunately, Wuz, that map really does not tell the whole story. We also have fellow citizens in American Samoa and North Mariana that downright deny the people their 2A right. Closer to home, the other three territories and several states style themselves as "may issue" states. Truth be told, most of these "may issue" states are, in reality, "right denied" states.

    The kicker, for me, is that it seems the more dangerous the location, the more the right to protection is crushed. Truly sad, and it will spread if we don't thwart the gun grabbers now.

    jrek, I'm a part time RI resident and checked into getting a ccw last summer. Technically your local police or sherriff is authorized to issue a permit, however,it seems they have tried to remove themselves of this responsibility (illegally I'm quite sure). The locals will tell you to submit your request directly to the State AG.
    If you don't personally know him, you can pretty much kiss it off. Good luck.
    Oh, I do have my blue card and yellow card for RI.
