The Board of Firearms Permit Examiners serves as the appeal panel where individuals may address delays, denials and revocations of state issued Eligibility Certificates and Permits to Carry Pistols and Revolvers.

The board accepts at a scheduled hearing, sworn testimony and evidence from both sides to determine two aspects needed to arrive at a fair resolution of the appeal.

The first is whether or not there are any state or federal disqualifiers in the appellant’s background, and the second being whether or not the issuing authority has reason to believe that the appellant is an unsuitable person to receive the Eligibility Certificate or Permit to carry which was applied for.
