Sheriff's Office Releases Gun Permit for Sikh Temple Shooter

The investigation into the shooting at the Wisconsin Sikh Temple continues, and police in North Carolina have released the gun permit of the suspected shooter, Wade Michael Page.

The spokesman for the Cumberland County, North Carolina Sheriff's Office has posted redacted gun permits dated in 2008 for Wade Michael Page, identified by authorities as the suspect in Sunday's Wisconsin Sikh temple shootings.

Page, an Army veteran, .

Police on Monday said one gunman was responsible for the Sunday shooting that left seven people dead at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek: Wade Michael Page, a 40-year-old Army veteran.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that Page was attached to the Fort Bragg base in North Carolina. Three bodies were found outside the temple at 7512 S. Howell Ave. and four were inside the building. Among the deceased is the gunman, who apparently acted alone.

The five permits issued are good for five years. According to the North Carolina Rifle & Pistol Association, all handgun transfers in North Carolina require that the intended recipient obtain a Pistol Purchase Permit from his/her local Sheriff. 

One Pistol Purchase Permit is required per handgun at $5 apiece. When the owner takes possession of the handgun, they must present the permit to the seller, who must keep it in his or her records. It is a Class 1 misdemeanor if the transaction takes place without the permit being presented.

There is a vigil at the Sikh Temple in Palatine at 7:30 p.m. tonight.

If you can't understand that you are making a very flawed argument, then oh well. Your first citation was literally some guy who said the story was true, and then was only indicative of one department in WI. He also doesn't give a number a failures, just says several failed once and three failed multiple times out of a force of 12. So this one force in obviously a smaller town is indicative of the entire 800,000 law enforcement officers nationwide? Try again. Your second site, while disturbing, only shows that some cops are bad news. I think, or hope, that many people already realized that. But guess what? Many CC holders are bad people and so are many gun owners. We have cops doing immoral and bad things (some of which that site says alleged) and we have legal gun owners going on mass killing sprees.
