Many people complain that it takes 90 days to get a CCH in Meck Cnty and think this is some kind of anti-gun thing. I don't know much about Sheriff Pendergraff, but that a big agency w/ many responsibilities takes 90 days DOES NOT mean they are anti-gun. As a retired cop, I know first hand the BS that an agency like that has to deal with. The volume of paperwork they have to fill out for every pee-ant shoplifter that has to go to the hospital for withdrawl symptoms alone would make most of us jump out a window. Sheriff Pendergraff goes against the political poopstorm in deporting illegal aliens. He does not have to do this. He catches alot of grief for doing this. Keep this in mind bfeore you complain about him. Illegal aliens kill people every week around here and he is constantly on the radio here promoting his cooperation with DHS to get them out of here. If you have been unfairly turned down, that is one thing. If it takes the 90 days that is allowed, and you get the permit you are entitled to, maybe you should give a little slack to a guy that is doing the right thing regarding illegals. FWIW, I don't live in Mecklenburg, but I call 'em the way I see 'em.
