I'm a 22 year old, currently in school for criminal justice. I'm looking to get a CCW permit because until i have my degree, i'd like to get involved in either Loss Prevention/Private Security. Alot of these companies require you have a CCW to apply. I've been told outright that the AG will deny pretty much everyone the first time. Is there any tips that a RI resident could give me in reguards to getting the CCW permit. I have had business relationships with a couple of members of my city's law enforcement, one of which is a procecuter, however i don't know if they'd go to bat for me with the Cheif. Any help that could be given would be appreciated.
