SB 1122 - This act allows fees to be collected from weapons licensing and have those fees deposited into a separate interest- bearing fund known as the "County Sheriff's Revolving Fund".

This act sets forth the requirements to obtain a permit to carry a concealed firearm. The permits are issued by the county Sheriff and are valid for a period of three years. This act sets out the application for permits. The Sheriff may make inquiries to verify the accuracy of the statements made in the application. The Sheriff is required to either permit or deny the application within forty-five days of submission and may deny an application if any of the requirements are not met or if there is reason to believe the applicant made a false statement. The Sheriff is required to give written notice the application has been denied, stating the grounds of the refusal.

An applicant must demonstrate knowledge of firearm safety training. The act sets out requirements for the safety instruction and for the qualification of the safety instructors.

If a Sheriff refuses to issue or act on an application, the applicant may appeal.
