While some liberal law enforcement officers and leaders are against concealed carry permits, some are not and recognize how concealed carry can and does hep lower crime and give people the ability to protect themselves.
Alan Hal Hoyle of North Carolina is running for Sheriff. However, he means to change the way that some things are ran in Lincoln County.
For one, he will not require a concealed carry permit for citizens to carry their gun, and has even made it part of his plan to meet with pastors in order to reduce crime by preventing it.
Here is an email sent in to Keep and Bear, regarding his policies:
