DISCLAIMER

 No resident has the right to a permit, nor is the Sheriff required to issue a permit. By law, the Sheriff has the discretion to approve or deny a CCW permit initial or renewal, as well as revoke permits that have already been issued.

A permit may contain any reasonable restrictions or conditions on its use. Restrictions or conditions (if any) are imposed at the sole discretion of the Sheriff. Receipt by the Sheriff’s Office of a CCW permit application does not guarantee the issuance of a permit.
