    Well, after almost a month of trying to secure the business license I have still had no luck. The council is apparently looking into amending local ordinance to allow for my request, but it doesn't seem like this is going to happen quickly. I haven't heard anything from the FFL Application, but I fear that my application will be denied once they follow up since things aren't progressing on the city's front.

    Hey DawgFan706,

    How is your progress going? I am about to go through the same process here in Cobb and wondering if it is even worth pursuing after reading your posts. Anyone else had any success in Cobb County?
    ☑ LLC
    ☑ EIN
    ☑ Georgia Tax ID
    ◻ Cobb Co. Business License
    ◻ FFL Application

    I'll give you a thumbs up just for pursuing it considering you're 118 years old. :righton:

    JWS, by far the hardest part was interacting with the city. After countless emails and phone calls I finally found a lawyer to help me interact with the city. FFL arrived Monday and first firearm shipment arrived yesterday.

    Glad I found this thread! I got my phone call from IOI this afternoon at work. Told me I need Zoning from Clayton County to approve. But, I thought pre-emption law overruled so I didn't sweat it. I'm calling in the morning to see my fate. I'd love to retain counsel from the OP firm. Also said I need to register trade name also with Clerk of Superior Court.

    Heard back from Clayton County, they realized their mistake and are taking action to correct their old law/ zoning practices. Thanks GPO!
