SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) -
From Rowan Sheriff Kevin Auten: In an ongoing effort to provide updated and more efficient
service to Rowan County residents, the Rowan County Sheriff's Office is now
offering an opportunity for Rowan County citizens to apply for a handgun
purchase permit online by going to the Rowan County Sheriff's Office web page
and clicking on Handgun Permits on the left side of the screen.

come to the either the main Sheriff's Office in Salisbury, or the satellite
office in Landis, NC, when the permit has been approved and is ready for
"A Rowan County citizen can now complete the handgun permit
application, at a time that may be convenient to them, anywhere that they have
access to the internet," Sheriff Auten said.
"The website is very user friendly and secure, with the capability to
pay online with a major credit or debit card."
Initiating a handgun purchase permit online eliminates the need to make
the two trips to the Sheriff's Office, thereby saving citizens time and the
cost of gas to come to one of our offices to apply for the permit in person.
The cost of a handgun purchase permit remains the same, at
$5 each. The secure service for the
on-line payment charges only a $3 convenience fee making the process, safe,
secure, efficient, and inexpensive. A
citizen can request multiple permits when applying, but only pays the
convenience fee once, no matter how many permits may be requested with the
Once the handgun permit application is submitted, the
applicant will receive an email, text message, voicemail, or a combination of
the three regarding their application process, and the applicant will continue

internet, or be able to apply online.
Those persons may still come to the Sheriff's Office at Salisbury or
Landis to submit a handgun permit application on paper as always, and pay for
the permit at the customer window.
As always, handgun permits will be required to be picked up
in person, and will require the applicant to present his or her currently valid
NC driver's license, or other valid identification matching the name and
address of the applicant.
Sheriff Auten stated, " I think the option of making an
application for a handgun purchase permit online will be a benefit to Rowan
County citizens, and will allow my staff to serve the public in a more
efficient and convenient manner!"
