I spoke to a Columbus Police officer last night who located a loaded 50 cal. pistol in a vehicle during a traffic stop. The guy had a ccw permit but also had a criminal record for felony transportation of a firearm and ccw charges. Tell us if you agree or disagree with CCW laws. Obviously there are cracks in the backgrounds being conducted. Not good for us!

When I was trying to get my CCW permit they almost didn't allow me to get it because I was pulled over and had my vehicle illegally searched (while in the process of getting my CCW license) and the officer saw my Glock under the passenger seat with an empty mag in the weapon but a full mag in the holster. I was arrested. It was later expunged from my record. I had to wait another six months before I could get my license although by the time I showed up in court I had already passed all requirements for my permit. The city kept my brand new Glock 22. I found out later it was issued to a police officer in my hometown. I had it in the truck because I was at the range that afternoon practicing for my shoot coming up the next weekend (my final task to fulfill requirements for CCW license).

JB, in regards to your situation, that guy should have never had a CCW license. A felony period disqualifies you for a CCW in the state of Tennessee.

JB, both Flipper and SgtDarryl are right on. If the police encounter someone who is a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, it is a Federal felony violation. It does not matter if he is issued a CCW by any state, or has a letter from his mother. I agree with the CCW for law abiding citizens. The criminal turd is going to carry one anyway, regardless. I"m not sure which state Flipper is in, but, in North Carolina a gun under the seat is a concealed weapon. If your case was handled, and you were convicted (whether or not it was expunged later) the weapon can be seized. Weapons that are seized are sometimes issued to training officers for instruction.

In Texas a convicted felon shall not be in possession of a firearm, that is a felony in its own right there. I am for CCW how ever but this goes back to my first post on here about the mental testing and deeper background checks.

It's Federal Law that felons cannot possess firearms so he should have been immediately arrested and charged as an ex-felon with a firearm. As for the CCW he would have had to lie on the form to obtain it so the Feds would be able to charge him for that violation and the list goes on. I have no problem with CCW's so long as the people really know how and when to use them. I love it when some would be robber points a gun at his intended victim and the victim blows his silly ass away. Just flat makes my day!

with a previous felony, he wouldn't have had a CCW permit here in North Carolina.
