Forever means you didn't get it.  Be happy you are not in NJ or MD.  It's forever there.

Sussex Co.

I started the process 11/1/2020, getting Character References, putting ad in The Guide, signing up for 'the class', getting pictures of myself, and of course finger prints.

My Character References were not clear enough on question 4. "Are you aware of the reason why this applicant has applied for a license to carry a concealed deadly weapon? Yes (check box)  No (check box)  If yes, explain___________________
They were sent back to me in the mail, and I had to ask all 5 if they would be more specific, and include protection for myself, family, my dog, etc. (which they did). 
So, this begs the question, WHY HAVE A CHECK BOX FOR "NO" IF THAT IS NOT AN OPTION?  And, why should your character witness(s) even CARE why I want the CCDW?  I now have to explain myself to them, which really pisses me off.

Clearly, it's a trick, a delay tactic to impede the acquisition of my CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to bear arms!  Some people might actually give up at this point!

Anyway, all told it has taken 5 months.

I really, really hope 'people' (of all political parties) wake up and realize we are being brought slowly to a boil, as in the boiling frog syndrome !  We cannot be separated from our firearms so that politicians can have their way with us!! 

I would like to see billboards pop up across the state, showing what the socialists are doing to us!

Regards,
Simon

Yep, question 4.

I make sure I tell my students to tell their references their reasons so the reference person will check yes and explain.

Recently heard they're rejecting no.

Question 4 is now forcing your Character References to APPROVE your CCDW by acknowledging your NEED for concealment, when that is clearly out of the scope of a 'character reference', which simply is that you are a good guy or a bad guy in their view.

Shows you how brilliant they are; almost anyone can find 5 people willing to lie for you:  what's next?  5 sworn affidavits testifying that they are telling the truth?  yeah, that would be the next move by those commies.

Divide and Conquer, what they do!!

Looks like they were working on renewals but now hopefully they'll get to new apps...  I did email but no reply.. funny thing I emailed the person who does the apps for Kent County and she responded next day 😂
