After Orlando – Sheriff Waives All Fees For Concealed Carry Permits

Bates County, Missouri Sheriff Chad Anderson is waiving the $100 fee for a resident to get his concealed carry permit.

He has caused quite a stir as much of the nation cries out for more gun control. This county sheriff sees protecting his residents a different way.

This is the statement from the Bates County Sheriff Facebook page:

In the wake of continued attacks against Americans on American soil. The Bates County Sheriff is waiving the cost of the CCW Permits for the rest of June. The Bates County Sheriff’s Office will hold another CCW Class on July 9th with those attendees also receiving their 5 year permits at no cost along with the free class taught by Bates County Sheriff’s Office. This is for Bates County Residents only.

“I feel that I have a Duty to Protect the Citizens while here in Bates County and allow them to be able to protect themselves and their loved ones while they are away,” Says Sheriff Anderson. “I will continue to pray for peace for our country and the world. But I will not put blinders on and act like this can not happen here or to people we know and love. I want to say a Big Thank You to the Law Enforcement and First Responders Community for what you are willing to sacrifice for our nation at home. While this will be debated on so many different levels please remember that your local first responders are the ones that will be there ready at a moments notice to handle any of these threats.”

The move seems to be well received in Bates County if not the rest of the country. From NBC4i:

The move only affects people living in Bates County and also comes with a waiver of fees for a sheriff’s office-taught CCW class. The fee for a CCW permit is $100.

“I think it’s a great decision by our sheriff because I think it’s one of the safest ways we as Americans have to protect ourselves is with ourselves,” said Immanuel Baptist Church Pastor Jeff Connell. “If someone came into church with a gun, I would rather have my members have a gun to protect themselves than having nothing to protect themselves against one.”

“Properly trained and responsible adults. I think if we had more people out there that were responsible concealed carriers, I think we’d have a lot less of this going on,” said Dennis Barr, who was who was traveling through Butler.

In Bates County…lock and load.
