The Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) processes the applications and issues concealed weapon licenses.
Please do not call with inquiries - the BCI is prohibited by law from providing information about the status of a concealed weapon license application to anyone, even the applicant. Instead, please follow the instructions for making a written status inquiry.
You can review North Dakota's Weapons Laws in Title 62.1 of the North Dakota Century Code.
