Major Hassan’s concealed carry application in VA

Gawker, an unusual blog has information about Major Hasan’s application for a concealed carry permit in VA.  Fort Hood, like all military installations, will have a regulation concerning the possession and carrying of weapons on post.  Usually the weapon has to be stored in the Armory.

Here is the complete application.  The blog also notes:

Before 1995, according to the Roanoke County Circuit Court clerk’s office, Virginia law required a psychiatric evaluation and documented explanation for why a resident needed to carry a concealed handgun. But by the time Hasan applied in October 1995, all that was required was a criminal background check and certification of a gun safety course. For some reason proof of having completed individual infantry training in the U.S. Army (next slide) was not enough for the Commonwealth of Virginia when it came to gun safety and Hasan had to take an NRA course as well.
