I stopped by the Fulton County Probate Court recently while I was at the courthouse on other business. I requested an information sheet on applying for firearms licenses. After reading the information sheet, and noticing that a social security card was not one of the documents listed, I leaned over to the nice clerk who had given it to me and asked whether an applicant was required to disclose his social security number or employment information to apply for a firearms license, since the information sheet did not address such matters. "No, sir. You used to, but they changed all that." I thanked her and left.
