Keep a watchful eye out for a concealed carry permit scam happening online. The scam pretends to be selling a “National Concealed Weapons Permit,”. A national permit currently does NOT exist at this time.
Range365 shared the statement from the Colorado State police where they are getting a high rate of these instances. “We have a civilian fingerprinting program operating three days a week out of the Stetson Hill Division. Over the last two weeks, we have had several people come into the station and request fingerprinting for a “National Concealed Weapons Permit.” Lieutenant Catherine Buckley researched this issue and it appears there are some deceptive advertising practices occurring. The permit is actually a State of Virginia non-resident permit, which does not have reciprocity in Colorado. We have spoken with a representative from Virginia State Police who advised they have received calls regarding the non-resident permit and are aware of the advertising that is occurring; however, it is not from the State of Virginia. The representative verified there actually is a non-resident permit.”
Always be sure to check your local state department prior to agreeing, signing, or making payment towards any “legal” permitting actions you required.
