CCW Denial – While Missouri is a “shall issue” state, or the sheriff shall issue a Concealed Carry Weapon (CCW) endorsement upon application by a qualified individual, certain factors can lead to a denial of your application. See Missouri Statute 571.101. Some of these factors, like “(7) Has not engaged in a pattern of behavior, documented in public or closed records, that causes the sheriff to have a reasonable belief that the applicant presents a danger to himself or others;” and “(8) Is not adjudged mentally incompetent at the time of application …” present arguable issues. If you are applying for your CCW or just a renewal, and have been denied, we may be able to assist you in appealing this decision. Contact us for a consultation.
