I just received a denial letter of my CWL. I was denied because i was in a mental hospital at the age of 12 or 13 for about 3 weeks. I am now 21. I am serving on active duty in the army national guard. I just don't understand why i was denied because of that so long ago. They said I could file a petition of a district court judge but i don't know how? Can anyone provide any information on this.

2 things....
1st, hop on over to carolinashootersforum.com and repost your question. It's a great Carolina's board with an active group that is happy to help.

2nd, you're only recourse here in NC is to go the appeal route via a district judge. I've heard of this happening in several cases with positive outcomes (and at least one with a not so positive outcome).

Your military service may or may not be seen as a "positive" for this situation depending on your county or sheriff, so I would encourage you to get some local input before making your appeal.
