What we can learn from CHP applications

When Christopher Bryan Speight, accused of killing 8 people in Appomattox, sought a concealed weapons permit 15 years ago, he stated that he was "not quick to anger," and found "ways to get out of problems without force or violence." That letter, obtained by the Times-Virginian from the Appamatox County clerk and dated Feb. 2, 1995, was written as then 24-year-old Speight applied for a concealed weapons permit in Appomattox County 15 years ago.
