I was wondering if anyone can tell me how the Patriot Act has impacted the issuing of CCW permits to individuals who aren't American citizens. In the past, as a Canadian, I was able to take a CCW course and obtain a permit. Often, we did it in the state of Utah, due to their reciprocity agreements with so many other states.
Since then, the permit has lapsed. I recall reading somewhere that new residency requirements are now in place that make it much more difficult for Canadians and other foreigners to obtain permits. Any info would be appreciated on this!
