I may be headed to Naval War College in Newport within the year and have been doing as much homework as I can on applying for a CCW permit there. It is absolutely unbelievable the amount of work that is involved.
Based on what I'm reading, it involves multiple trips to a local Sheriff's office, a psychological screening, additional "interviews" with somebody in local law enforcement, a short essay, probably needing to get a C&R (especially after first denial), a $240 fee, and a dozen other hurdles.
Needless to day, I'm not looking forward to the battle. Also not looking forward to memorizing the individual laws of the half-dozen states that are within an hours drive of there.
And lets be honest... "legislation being considered" is a long way to getting an actual law in place, but it looks like a step in the right direction.
