I have applied for and received my CCW from Douglas County. The probate court didn't ask for my SSN, however they did ask for my work address (not sure why). The probate court employees were very professional and did not seem to care one way or another about the CCW. When I was being finger printed by Douglas County Police, the female Deputy did ask my why I wanted a CCW. I wanted to say "It's none of your business" or "it's my constitutional right" but instead I told her that after hearing from my friend in FL how hard and expensive it is to get one there, and when I learned how easy and cheap it was in GA I might as well just get one. She didn't seem to happy with that answer but didn't say anything. I was on vacation for a week so I don't know the exact time, but it was right around three months to receive it in the mail.
