So I just finished my required course here in KY last week. I scored a perfect 100% on the shooting, and a perfect 100% on the written exam. Now, it's time to wait.





I know I shouldn't have anything to worry about on my background check....except I've got probably 5 or so speeding tickets on my driving record. Do those effect ones ability to get the permit?

I hope not. Insurance rates are punishment enough for my lead-foot. To deny me my right to carry would just be "totally unfair." :roll:

Texas only looks at felonies and misdemeanors that are drug/alcohol related. So, mostly non-moving violations.

I would suspect that the answer is no most places. Probably only because to insist they were real criminal charges rather than simple fines would then require you to be entitled to a trial by jury rather than just time in front of a judge.



Which would pretty much put an end to that revenue stream.



That isn't to say that you can't get moving violation that qualify as felonies in some states, and I'm sure those count, but they also generate more of a legal mess than your average ticket.

Speeding tickets are not felonies so I would say no problem to NV.
(Figured I should post this before some questions it)

Not in Vermont. Anyone who is legally able to posses a gun over the age of 18 is able to CC. We don't have CCW licences up here. The only problem with that is according to my understanding we don't reciprocate to anyother state.

South Carolina (SLED)'s CCW application:



Traffic offenses are crimes and must be reported. A minor traffic violation record will not result in denial of your application. However, six (6) multiple traffic offenses within a five (5) year period will be considered a basis of denial

Southern California is a great place for those who are speed limit challenged. Generally if you go with the flow of traffic on the freeway, which is usually 10 to 20 MPH faster than the speed limit, you won't be bothered. Even on surface streets the local PDs don't seen too bothered to set up speed traps.

Agreed - that's too far north. :wink: John and Panch are sitting there catching those leaving town and coming into town.
