I kept hearing I needed to take a concealed classes to get my license which would have cost me at least $80. I found out by reading the law I am exempt as a veteran to have to take a course because of my military service (In section E)
. But everyone in my area says my local Sheriff doesn't allow this and MAKES people take the NRA or Sheriffs class.
IS HE BRAKING STATE LAW?!?
