COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say more than 600 concealed-carry gun permits issued in central Ohio are invalid because training certificates were falsified.
The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/RwcSK2 ) reports that a months long investigation resulted in felony charges against three men and letters to the gun-owners who obtained the certificates, which are needed to apply for the licenses.
Franklin County Sheriff Zach Scott said Thursday that one of the men, a certified firearms instructor, sold signed training certificates to the other two. Those men conducted sessions that fell short of the required training or just provided the certificates for a price.
Recipients of the certificates will have 14 days to respond to the sheriff's office letter and provide proof that they have taken the correct amount of training for a concealed-carry license.
