I recently moved in Hennepin county and need to notify the Sheriff's office of my new address. Does anyone know how to notify them without going down to the office in person? Will they give me a new permit with my new address? The Hennepin county Sheriff issued my permit originally. I tried to search, but could not find anything.

So, am I wrong in reading that one must mail their current permit in? :?

Or would a copy of it, along with all the other required information do?

When in doubt, actually reading the law might prove useful:
---
Subd. 7a. Change of address; loss or destruction of
permit. (a) Within 30 days after changing permanent address,
or within 30 days of having lost or destroyed the permit card,
the permit holder must notify the issuing sheriff of the change,
loss, or destruction. Failure to provide notification as
required by this subdivision is a petty misdemeanor. The fine
for a first offense must not exceed $25. Notwithstanding
section 609.531, a firearm carried in violation of this
paragraph is not subject to forfeiture.

(b) After notice is given under paragraph (a), a permit
holder may obtain a replacement permit card by paying $10 to the
sheriff. The request for a replacement permit card must be made
on an official, standardized application adopted for this
purpose under section 624.7151, and, except in the case of an
address change, must include a notarized statement that the
permit card has been lost or destroyed.

---
Either follow what Hennepin County requests, even though it exceeds their authority; or simply send a letter. Do not send $10 with application for a replacement (unless you want a replacement card); do not send current permit.

Dear Sheriff Stanek,

I have a Minnesota Permit to Carry, number 12345, issued by your office on June 1, 2006. As required in MN Stat 624.714, Subd. 7a, I hereby notify you of my change of address. My new address is 123 Main St., Minneapolis, MN 55114.

Sincerely,
George G. Gonzales

Your reading is correct, but the information provided by the Hennepin County Sherriff's Office is just plain wrong and outside of the legal requirements. And people wonder why we have difficulties with the way police do business.

It's not a clerical error, it's a pattern of behavior.

Yup. And do let's remember that HennCo is, while not at the top (Sheriff Hutton's Washington County SO is clearly at least tied for the best), well above the average in this.

Interesting. When I moved to Carver Co. from Douglas Co., I simply called in to Douglas Co. Sheriff and they told me they entered my request into the system and to mail a $10 check and it'll get applied to my request. I did so and received a confirmation letter and a new permit in the mail (same envelope, permit had new address) I never had to mail my old permit it, it was never mentioned.

Why are people getting new permits when they move?

Gun shops often won't honor the carry permit as a purchase permit if the address thereon does not match the one on your license.

Thanks for the info and the link. It really does not make sense to me that you have to send in your permit. However, during this time I still want to carry my pistol. I am considering making a photocopy of my permit to carry around with me while I wait for my new permit. Would you guys recommend that, or should I just not carry my pistol? What have you guys done in this situation?

As Andrew posted.....

Not required by law to get a new Minnesota permit when you change address, such as you would do for your driver's license because you moved, you just need to inform the issuing county Sheriff of the change of address for your permit. But a dealer/FFL will not honor your Minnesota permit to carry for a transfer or a purchase of a handgun if the information on your Minnesota permit to carry does not match your new and updated Minnesota photo identification, such as your drivers license.

I suggest that if you do move, inform the issuing sheriff and apply for the change of your Minnesota permit to carry when you update the address on your new Minnesota drivers license.

Alternately, you could simply apply for a Permit To Purchase when you change your D/L address -- doesn't cost anything, after all.

Don't send them your permit. You don't have to. See above.

Send them the photocopy and your $10. If they hassle you, (which they won't) come back here and ask for advice.

You know, if you keep giving good, solid, short advice like that, you just might get stuck with an admin flag here, and -- oh. Nevermind.
