    I'm sure this has been beat to death and apologize a head of time.

    I was under the impression that renewing a GWL now doesn't require finger printing AND the back ground check?I thought we were only required to complete the back ground check in GA?

    A co-worker living in Bryan county tells me he was charged for both during a recent renewal.He assures me he wasn't expired.I've been digging around,but,can't find that specifically.I seem to remember reading it at the same time i read about HS60?

    Thanks,

    I assume he has the old style gfl? I remember reading some probate were requiring prints again if you had the old style. Don't think that's legal though

    (c) Fingerprinting. Following completion of the application for a weapons carry license, the judge of the probate court shall require the applicant to proceed to an appropriate law enforcement agency in the county or to any vendor approved by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation for fingerprint submission services with the completed application so that such agency or vendor can capture the fingerprints of the applicant. The law enforcement agency shall be entitled to a fee of $5.00 from the applicant for its services in connection with fingerprinting and processing of an application. Fingerprinting shall not be required for applicants seeking temporary renewal licenses or renewal licenses.

    (d) Investigation of applicant; issuance of weapons carry license; renewal.

    (1) For both weapons carry license applications and requests for license renewals, the judge of the probate court shall within five business days following the receipt of the application or request direct the law enforcement agency to request a fingerprint based criminal history records check from the Georgia Crime Information Center and Federal Bureau of Investigation for purposes of determining the suitability of the applicant and return an appropriate report to the judge of the probate court. Fingerprints shall be in such form and of such quality as prescribed by the Georgia Crime Information Center and under standards adopted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation may charge such fee as is necessary to cover the cost of the records search.

    (2) For both weapons carry license applications and requests for license renewals, the judge of the probate court shall within five business days following the receipt of the application or request also direct the law enforcement agency to conduct a background check using the Federal Bureau of Investigation's National Instant Criminal Background Check System and return an appropriate report to the probate judge.​

    A girl I work with said that her probate court (Barrow County) told her she had to get fingerprinted for her renewal because she was renewing a GWL that was issued in another Georgia county. Should this matter?

    Actually, I think the 16-11-129 info is out of date on GPDO's site. I looked and could not find it in the text for 16-11-129 on GPDO, but the HandgunLaw site did have it.

    This is correct. The Weapons Related Ga Code is out of date on this site. Last update was 2012. Matt knows this and has been working to fix this, but it's not done yet.

    Why would you not go to the GeorgiaCarry.Org website and click on the Weapons Related Georgia Code link there. It would be the best place. It's updated with all the newest related weapons code from 2014-2015.

    It took approximately 9 weeks to receive my renewal license in Chatham county.

    The probate told me they've been like this for a few years now. Swamped.

    I renewed in Chatham Co. July 2014 and had my license in under 3 weeks. When applying and told it may take a while I pointed out the law right then and that I would hold them to it.
