Recent homicide with retired cop's gun

Interesting how the retired officer who reported this gun stolen was tasked with coming up with East Greenwich's pistol permit police back around 2007. Part of that police is proving you safely store firearms. (Which isn't a requirement as part of 11-47-11.) He was the deputy chief at that time and lectured me on this (maybe it was the chief and not him but either way they don't lead by example.

Note: The current East Greenwich Police administration has a near perfect pistol permitting process.

That gun was stolen a while ago, no? Funny how that works.

And yes, they do still require a statement on how you plan to safely store your firearms when not on your person. I will agree however that they have become very, very good in their process. So good in fact I almost regret moving away from EG because I know the hassle I'm in for when I go to apply in my current town.

I wonder WHEN it was reported stolen..
jcat, get a permit from another State and then you can apply in EG for your renewal.

I recall it being stolen back before I even had my ccw, I think. That's going back to over a year and a half or almost 2 ago.

I planned on doing the Utah permit thing anyway so maybe that's a good idea. But then again, I also planned on getting Scituate before my EG permit expired.

Get a NH permit. I think the application is 1-2 pages and they have to do it in just a few weeks by law.
