So my question is, do I have a snowball's chance in hell to get a CCW?
Currently my driving record is clean, but I have had my fair share of tickets in the past. But that is not why I am worried. When I was 18 I was arrested and convicted of Misdemeanor Grand Theft. Then, in 2004 I was arrested and convicted for carrying a loaded and concealed firearm in my vehicle (Misdemeanor).
Fast forward and now I am a 35 year old Insurance Agent, Married with 3 kids. The worse offense I've made in the last 8 years was related to my wife and timely household chores
.I've had to overcome my past before. When I applied for my Fire and Casualty Insurance License I was denied initially but I appealed the decision. I went before a judge and represented myself against a DOI Attorney and won. But getting a CCW
? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
