Concealed Weapons Permit Information (CWQ/CWR)

This section describes how Nlets users may exchange concealed weapon permit information between state, local and federal law enforcement and criminal justice agencies.

The purpose of the Concealed Weapons Permit Information System is to provide a standardized, secure, and efficient method for states that have automated concealed weapon permit (CWR) systems to respond automatically (without manual intervention) to requests (CWQ) from other states over Nlets.

Those states without automated systems should respond manually or notify Nlets of their inability to participate (CWR). In these cases, Nlets will return a standard "not available" response.

Overview

An agency may request out-of-state concealed information by submitting a fixed format query to the state of record. The query (CWQ) may be on name and date of birth, the permit number, or social security number. A user may include some or all of these elements but should clearly understand that each search element may generate a separate query, depending on the capabilities of the state. A response (CWR) will be returned with the notification that a permit does or does not exist, its status, and a description of the owner.

Section30-CWQ.jpg

Query Requirements

  • CWQ messages may be sent to only a single 2-character state code.
  • Full nine-character destination ORIs will cause rejection of the entire message.
  • One of these must always be present in a request:
    • Name/DOB
    • Social Security Number
    • Permit Number
  • Users of this system must also recognize that each state will deal with the searching of their database in their own way. For example, some states may not support a search of social security number. Others may support this but not permit number.
  • Trailing spaces should be eliminated in all data fields.
  • When sending a free-form response format, states should ensure that no special codes or abbreviations are used.

Query Help

Details on the unique way states will search their concealed weapons file may be found in their HELP record.

The way to obtain this record is to send an administrative message, "AM", to a 9 character ORI where the first two characters is the state code followed by "GUNHELP". For example, to access Indiana's HELP record the destination ORI address would be "INGUNHELP".

A list of all states participating can be found by querying "NLGUNHELP". Below is a copy of the "NLGUNHELP" file taken from the system on October of 2018.

Concealed Weapons Permit Queries / Responses (CWQ/CWR)

  • All CWQ queries should be answered by a CWR from the destination.
  • The format of the responses is optional, however states should make every effort to translate any state-specific codes.
  • States should attempt to show what action was taken on the search. For example, a record may be available on the NAM/DOB however, no information was found on the permit number. The requestor should be told this.
  • If the state does not have the ability to search their file by one of the indices the requestor should be so notified.
  • In all cases, the original inquiry should be the first part of all responses in order to let the requester identify their request.
  • States may have reciprocity with certain states and not others. This information should be included in each state's help file record. See Section 5 of the Nlets Users Guide for directions on how to add a help record to the Nlets system.
  • If one uses a format with more than one index (e.g., NAM/DOB and SOC or NAM/DOB and PER) the responder should indicate which search element was used to search the file and which one, if any, produced the hit.
  • Some states search by name only. This may produce multiple hits. States' responses may differ slightly.

NIEM

Concealed Weapons Permit NIEM Specifications

This section describes how Nlets users may exchange concealed weapon permit information in NIEM format between state, local and federal law enforcement and criminal justice agencies. NIEM examples are provided.

CWQ messages may be sent to only a single 2-character state code. Full nine-character destination ORIs will cause rejection of the entire message.

Users of this system must also recognize that each state will deal with the searching of their database in their own way. For example, some states may not support a search of social security number. Others may support this but not permit number.

Nlets now provides a standardized response format for this message type in addition to the free-form format. The standardized format for this message is anticipated to be supported on the Nlets production system by July of 2016. Please contact Kate Silhol at ksilhol@nlets.org for additional information regarding implementation.

All CWQ queries should be answered by a CWR from the destination.

States should attempt to show what action was taken on the search. For example, a record may be available on the <n2:Person>/<nc:PersonBirthDate> however, no information was found on the permit number. The requestor should be told this.

If the state does not have the ability to search their file by one of the indices the requestor should be so notified.

In all cases, the original inquiry should be the first part of all responses in order to let the requester identify their request.

States may have reciprocity with certain states and not others. This information should be included in each state's help file record.

All Nlets NIEM messages must be based on the Nlets NIEM Message Structure and include the standard Nlets XML Header as detailed in Message Structure. The NIEM header and hierarchy of the elements in this section have been omitted to avoid redundancy. The associated schemas and instances should be consulted to determine the correct XPaths of the elements.

Legacy (DEPRECATED)

Concealed Weapons Permits Legacy Specifications

This section describes how Nlets users may exchange concealed weapon permit information between state, local and federal law enforcement and criminal justice agencies.

  • CWQ messages may be sent to only a single 2-character state code.
  • Full nine-character destination ORIs will cause rejection of the entire message.
  • One of these must always be present in a request:
    Name/DOB
    Social Security Number
    Permit Number
  • Users of this system must also recognize that each state will deal with the searching of their database in their own way. For example, some states may not support a search of social security number. Others may support this but not permit number.
  • Trailing spaces should be eliminated in all data fields.
  • There are no fixed response formats but states should ensure that no special codes or abbreviations are used.

Response Formats

  • All CWQ queries should be answered by a CWR from the destination.
  • The format of the responses is optional, however states should make every effort to translate any state-specific codes.
  • States should attempt to show what action was taken on the search. For example, a record may be available on the NAM/DOB however, no information was found on the permit number. The requester should be told this.
  • If the state does not have the ability to search their file by one of the indices the requester should be so notified.
  • In all cases, the original inquiry should be the first part of all responses in order to let the requester identify their request.
  • States may have reciprocity with certain states and not others. This information should be included in each state's help file record. See Section 5 of the Nlets Users Guide for directions on how to add a help record to the Nlets system.
  • If one uses a format with more than one index (e.g., NAM/DOB and SOC or NAM/DOB and PER) the responder should indicate which search element was used to search the file and which one, if any, produced the hit.
  • Some states search by name only. This may produce multiple hits. States' responses may differ slightly.
