In South Carolina, Halifax County Sheriff Wes Tripp doesn’t believe law-abiding citizens should have to wait very long if they want to lawfully carry concealed firearms.

Tripp said since taking office, he has placed streamlining the concealed carry permitting process as a high priority. Tripp believed 90 days was too long for applicants to wait on their permits, and now he’s put measures in place to close the time frame to a week.

“I have initiated a more timely and convenient process of obtaining a concealed carry permit,” Tripp said.
The sheriff said he’s expanded the process since taking office by making applications available at post offices, libraries and municipal buildings so applicants could spend less time at the sheriff’s office.
