Purchasing Handguns Through Dealers

Note: On August 11, 2014, the Governor signed into law that citizens with a Concealed Carry Weapon Permit (CCW) can purchase handguns through dealers, using their CCW. It is no longer necessary for these citizens, who have already been approved to carry a concealed weapon to come to the Sheriff's Office to obtain a Handgun Purchase Permit.
