Jackson, Mississippi Criminal Defense Lawyer Discusses The Requirements To Get A Concealed Weapon Permit In Mississippi

Mississippi Criminal Defense Attorney Curt Crowley

As I’ve stated before, my advice to anyone who regularly carries a firearm is to get a concealed-carry permit.  Mississippi law makes it quite easy to obtain a permit.  The basic requirements are as follows:

1.  Must be at least 21 years-old;

2.  Must be a Mississippi resident for at least 12 months before filing the application;

3.  Must have no physical impairments that would prevent you from safely handling a firearm;

4.  Must have no chronic or habitual drug or alcohol use;

5.  Must not have been convicted of a felony, or otherwise prohibited from possessing a firearm;

6.  Must not be mentally incompetent; and

7.  Must not be a fugitive.

These are the basic requirements to obtain your Mississippi concealed-carry permit (I omitted a few inconsequential requirements).  For additional information, you can contact the Mississippi Highway Patrol Firearm Permits Unit at 601.987.1586. 

If you have questions about firearm laws, please contact me.
