Apply online for Johnston County gun permits

Posted August 1, 2014

— Johnston County on Friday became the latest county in the state to move paperwork necessary to secure a handgun purchase or concealed carry permit online.

The qualifications for gun permits have not changed, but the online forms can give applicants a head start on the process. 

Those seeking a permit can download the forms and fill them out before presenting them to officials during office hours, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 4:45 p.m.

Online applicants can pay the fee for their permit(s) with a credit or debit card. Cash and check payments are still accepted.

    Ok. This started Today (Monday Aug. 4) not last Friday.

    Only the Purchase Permit can be applied for on line.

    Maybe not. But they do kill more people each year.

    You can't apply online. You can only print out the form and take it in.

    I don't see it for the Concealed Permit, only the Purchase Permit.

    "Guns cause mayhem in the same way spoons make people fat."

    Guns - especially those with 30-clip magazines (that you MUST have to fend off the imminent attack by the Obama government) - enable people to commit great mayhem and slaughter. Just ask any of the Sandy Hook family members. Or the family in Fayetteville that just lost their grandfather and a 10-year old.

    I doubt those folks think spoons are just as dangerous as guns.

    Time to stock up.

    Sounds like an easy way for the Obama administration to track who is applying for gun permits so they'll have a nice handy-dandy database to come take them away from you. No wonder all county governments are offering online applications. Big government in action. And you willingly give it to them right online. The already paranoid should be getting seriously disturbed over this right about now.
