Is it legal to deny a pistol purchase permit for a DWI conviction?
I was convicted of a Class 2 misdemeanor DWI in Jan. 2014. I recently applied for a pistol purchase permit after spending hours searching through NC laws about the matter and the situation the DWI put me in. It is my understanding that a CCW permit can NOT be given to somebody w/ a DWI in the past 3 years, but nowhere does it state a reason for denial of a ppp. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Also I live in Pitt County. What steps do I take to appeal this denial??
You are probably going to have to speak with a lawyer about this. First off, I've never heard of a class 2 DWI. There...

I got a marijuana DUI, but walk-n-turn on shoulder, bad weather, balance test on shoulder as well. What are chances?
Marijuana DUI, first offense ever. Pulled for unsafely passing emergency vehicle (cop had car pulled over for speeding, I and cars in front of me had to maneuver around as his car was onto the highway) He performs five field tests (walk-n-turn, hgn, finger-to-nose, stand on one foot and count to 30 seconds). He opted not to take me to hospital for blood test. Walk-n-turn administered on should of highway in 18 mph winds, rain, 40 degree temps and gusts to 30 mph. I was wearing slip-ons. He writes on the report that I can't keep my balance and have a heavy sway. Despite this, he marks me down as walking a straight line (an imaginary one), not using my arms for balance, not starting before told to and not stopping during the test. On the HGN, I pass 3 out of 4.
DWI's in North Carolina are tough to beat. You need to hire an excellent DWI defense attorney such as Les Robinson or...
Could I get in trouble for this?
Today I was driving around a back road and dropped my drink in the floor I bent down to pick it up and my car had drifted halfway into the other lane. There was a truck coming so I whipped my car back into my lane as fast as I could and the truck turned around and followed me. I had pulled into a parking lot and I didn't notice the truck until it was behind me. I guess it had wrote down my license plate number. I never hit the drunk or anything. There was no accident. So could I get in trouble for this?
It all depends on if the trucker reported anything and what he claimed he observed. There's nothing you can really do...
