I had my wallet stolen during a armed robbery. Do I have to go 2 through the entire process over, and can I still carry until I get another one? Please help.

IANAL, however you should be able to get a replacement license issued by your probate court. You can not carry until you have the replacment.

Hope this helps.


The question I have is were you robbed in an area where carry is off limits?

I'll second that question! Details here.... What happened? Were you disarmed because of where you were? If this is the case it may be basis for a law suit against the state for having laws that put you in danger. At the very least it would give our friends on in the Legislature some ammo for fixing the laws. Are you a member of GCO? If not you should be!

By the way.... Welcome Aboard!

You do NOT have to go through the entire process all over, but, depending on the county, the judge MAY try to make you. Do not stand for it. They are required to replace your license for a minimal fee.

Here is the kicker - do it TODAY. There is a time limit on when you may get a replacement for a lost or stolen license.

Did they Get your Gun, too?

How'd the robbers get your wallet without finding, and taking, your pistol too? Don't they have to shoot you with your own gun? Sarah Brady says so-- anyone who carries a gun for protection will end up having it used againt them.

I "lost" my license, and my county said that I could not renew it or have a replacement issued. They wanted me to re-apply just the same as if I were getting a brand new one. But then some nice person found mine, on the ground in a park, and mailed it back to me. Yay !!! :D

stolen licese

They didnt take my gun. I had it on my hip the entire time. But i had nothing in the chamber. They hopped out of a car and pointed a gun right at my head. All they got was a empty wallet. It wasnt worth killing them.

Stand your ground laws are there for a reason.

That being said, neither I nor any of the other people here were in your shoes and I honestly can't say what I would do if someone pointed a gun at my head. If I draw, they'd have ample opportunity to see it and shoot. I'm not Wyatt Earp and I can't get the gun out and fire three lethal shots from the hip in .2 seconds.

The positive here is that you weren't hurt... replacing the contents of a wallet is a whole lot easier than trauma surgery.

Completely agree. Situational awareness means something different to everyone.

You don't say how quickly all of this took place, but situational awareness is the key. I always carry chambered.

I would be explaining to the officer on scene why there are a couple of guys on the ground dead... 8) Carry hot, squeeze three and let it be. Remember, the perp may not always just want to take your wallet. That’s just what a victim prays for. What if he had intentions to get rid of the witness that saw his face(you)? Armed robbery is a serious crime. A witness alive is no good. You have to always put yourself in the bad guy’s shoes and act accordingly. I say defend yourself and let forensics figure it all out. 8)

Wallet empty = good.

Gun empty = bad.

:lol:

As for the comment, "It wasn't worth killing them," I might tend to agree, but the fact is you do not know what somebody like that is going to do even if you comply and meekly hand over the wallet.

I am glad it turned out alright, but please beware of relying on the kindness and mercy of armed robbers.

Now that they have your wallet, does this mean they can carry concealed? :lol:

The question that would be running through my mind is, "Can I draw, point, and squeeze in less time than it takes him to squeeze?" Hopefully being aware of what is happening around me will prevent me from ever being in a similar situation, but if I was caught off guard, and already had a gun pointed at my head I don't know if I would have tried to draw or not. Even if the BG had a Star, Kimber or Raven, it would likely get off one shot before jamming.
