Gun Laws>>>> Please Provide Input
« on: March 21, 2019, 10:06:05 AM »
Hey guys ! New member here and i have some questions/concerns. First off im 36yrs old, work 6 days a week and father of 6 kids, just a normal dude that loves hunting.fishing,guns and God. Ok so back when i was 25 i got into a little trouble, found myself with a 5 yr deferred adjudication probation. Honestly from 19-25 i was a wild cat but thank God i found my wife shortly after i got into my mess and I've never looked backed. Today we own our own successful business and life's great! I just wanted to throw that out here because i didn't want you guy's thinking this dude is a douche ! I might have been 12 years ago lol but not since . So anyways i don't have a felony, i buy guns and ammo all the time. 2 years ago i tried to get my concealed and they denied me because it hadn't been 10 yrs since sentence date of my ordeal. So Now its been 11 years since sentence date and i applied again in January 2019. I still have not heard anything and i check the website daily and it still shows under review.... my question is has anyone else been in a similar situation as I am in? If so, what was your outcome? My charge was POC less then 1 gram. Yes back when i was in my early 20's i partied and was stupid but that was a very long time ago, im certainly not proud of it but that's not who i am today and haven't been that guy in 12 years. I can still vote, i buy guns, ammo, i have my passport as well. You would think i would qualify now that it has been well over 10 years but now im getting nervous the state is gonna deny me again. ANY input would be appreciated ! Thanks

Welcome and your first Like Koolaid!

We all have opinions, but you really need to talk with an attorney or (assuming you're in Texas) DPS to get a good answer.
There are a fair number of nuances  in how things are interpreted.

I have to agree with TXAZ. Consult an attorney, or your last probation officer, or the TDPS to get concrete answers, rather than opinions. Every case is different and the circumstances concerning them are different. Even if another person was in the same situation, how it's dealt with legally can be very different.

12 weeks is a little long but not unheard of. A lot of people get a new handgun for Christmas and rush to get their LTC soon after so there may be a backlog. There is a specified time in the statute that requires the state to either approve or deny your application but I can't remember what it is. I thinks it's 60 days but could be longer. I'd wait until the end of the month and call.

Your last probation officer cannot help you (I am one).

Doesn't the CHL office have a number to contact someone? If not - you will just have to wait. I'd give it a bit longer before contacting an attorney

Was just guessing on that one Shipwreck.
