    Cool CWP denied SC

    I am the new kid on the block and I am from Spartenburg County SC and glad to join my brothers on this wonderful site.
    Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that I got a denial from Sled for CCW permit (77 days).I expected that would be their answer because Nics turned me down for a gun purchase back in 2008 for the same reason.I appealed and won my case the FBI sent me a letter to say I was now eligble to purchase.They said I was also qualified for the Voluntary Appeal File which I took advantage of.To appeal (I will) Sled wants a letter in writing containing the reasons that I believe were incorrectly stated and a copy of the incident report and certified court documents of disposition in 30 days.Incident took place(disorderly conduct) on August 11,1964 and was fined $50.00.How come I have to produce documents when they already made their decision based on the information they want me to produce.I should probably get advice from someone who has experience and went thru this.I want to be careful and not to say too much or give too much information.

    Was it SLED or Spartenburg Sheriff that objected that you get a CWP? If it's the Sheriff that did it make an appointment to see him and state your case. I have a friend in Greenville county that had a similar problem but his was with a marijuana conviction back in the 70's out of NC. He talked to the Sheriff and he wrote a letter to SLED and he got his CWP. Danno had a problem and he got it cleared up also. See his thread. http://www.usacarry.com/forums/south...l-process.html Don't give up and follow through until you get your CWP...

    After re-reading your post, I would get the info that SLED requested and still see the Sheriff. Talk to him and explain the circumstances and see if he will write you a letter of support for SLED. They only see what on the record and never get a persons point of view. This should help you in the long run.

    Did you list that conviction and the disposition of it on your application? If not that is the reason they turned you down. They will almost always deny a permit if they find anything left off of the application no matter what the present standing is. If you do not put down that you have had traffic tickets and they find that you have been charged for speeding they will deny it. If you did list it and explained the present status then I don't know but good luck with the appeal.

    You don't have to list convictions on the new form, that's what the background checks are for instead.

    Wow, I haven't seen the new form. That is quite a change from the old form.

    Then I would have been denied if I had used the new form, I guess. I listed a conviction (maryjane) from 1978 when i applied 6 years ago and they must have checked it out and it is now a misdemeanor... in 1978 it was not. Florida required documents, I presume since the conviction was also in S.C. SLED was able to check it out easier.

    as for the original post.... 1964? I can't imagine that being a problem, somebody is just wanting you to work for the permit.

    Good luck

I had a conviction for illegal weapon sales in NC and listed it and and explaned what happned, and was given my ccp, so be honest and truthful it works...........................I was worried about being turned down because of the conviction, but was honest, and explaned, and SLED was happy with that....................

    You chose to do that but there is nothing on the new form that indicates that it is required and nothing in the statute that lists it as a requirement either.

    I guess a phone call to SLED would clear it up but based on the information available you don't have to list anything.
