Virginia law allows for residents to apply for a concealed weapon permit. Those permits are typically reviewed by law enforcement for approval. If the request for the permit is denied, you have the right to appeal the denial to the Circuit Court. If you were denied a concealed weapon permit and chose to appeal the denial, it is important to discuss the matter with attorneys. There are certain factors that law enforcement considers when approving/denying a permit application. An attorney will work to ensure that law enforcement considered the appropriate information and applied the law correctly.
