Q: I was denied a pistol permit under the pretense that a hospital said that I had a substance abuse problem.
I do not have ANY SUBSTANCE ABUSE problem. My last drink was on July 4 of 2021! I have never been involuntary admitted to any substance abuse facility. I don’t use any drugs at all either and I haven’t In well over a year. I want to appeal the decision but I’m not sure what to do or if I need representation from a lawyer. NCGS 14-404(c)(3) denied by information given from a local hospital. The last time I visited that hospital was well over 2 years ago and all I asked for was adavan because I was trying to quit drinking on my own.
I’m in mecklenburg county.
A: There is not an appeal "question" in this post. I am not a NC lawyer, but if you truly want to appeal the decision, I would recommend legal representation. A core issue to be addressed on appeal is why do you need a pistol permit.
