101308GUNLAW_MS.jpgQ. Could you provide statewide figures for gun permits and concealed carry permits?

A.  As of June 11, 2015, there were 457,519 active concealed handgun permits held statewide, said Teresa West, N.C. State Bureau of Investigation special agent in charge.

Of that total, 7,123 active concealed handgun permits are held in New Hanover County, 6,597 are in Brunswick County and 3,395 are in Pender County.

The N.C. State Bureau of Investigation does not maintain data on pistol purchase permits. That is the responsibility of each county sheriff’s office, West said.
