What is This World Coming to? Virginia Offers Online Concealed-Carry Permits

This is NOT a Hoax. Online Classes for Owning REAL Guns

There was a press release on the Associated Press (AP) recently that didn’t seem to picked up by too many major news outlets back on September Third, 2012. If people want a gun permit, they don’t even need to be present to get certified and receive it.

The news came straight out of Richmond, Virginia and showed how the state is issuing a large amount of concealed-carry gun permits to citizens of the United States of America that aren’t even necessarily located in VA. How absurd is that? We’ll let you decide.

According to reports, the State Police of Virginia gave out 1,632 gun permits (concealed-carry) to nonresidents within the first 6 months of 2012. That well-outpaced the 1,321 permits that it issued in 2011 and it continues to grow today.

These numbers aren’t an exact science because their online analytics don’t track how many people take the online training and pass the tests compared to the other methods such as in-person at a testing facility with an instructor and a proper class with a test.
