So if you're not gonna show Chekhov's

So if you're not gonna show Chekhov's gun, do you have to have a concealed carry permit?

One way of taking your comment is literally:

It fits the trope. ie: You have to mention or include the item for it to be used later in the story.

I'd consider alluding to the character would be the type to have a gun, such as a permit reference, ex military or NRA member reference.

The other way: Yeah, the writer should have a concealed weapon permit.
