Mike, over at Everyday, No Days Off talked about a program by the state of Virginia where you can obtain a concealed handgun permit (CHP — I’m used to calling it a CHL, concealed handgun license, here in Texas). The only requirements are that you take the course online between now and April 10 and have a valid .edu email address. You don’t even have to be a resident of Virginia to apply for the permit, and it is valid in AK, AR, AZ, DE, FL, ID, IN, KY, LA, MI, MO, MS, MT, NC, ND, NE, NM, OH, OK, PA, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VT, and WV.
Please read the post over at Everyday, No Days Off for full details of the program. This is kind of a blatant rip off of Mike’s post (sorry Mike), but I felt it important enough to re-post here to spread the word around to as many folks as possible.
