    I hope this is the right section. It's more about buying than carrying.
    I can't sell you a gun because your ga dl is not 90 days old, your id is required to have a picture so your water bill will not work. I'm a freaking
    native born georgian, but can't prove with a picture that I've lived here more than 90 days.

    Sugestions ?

    they didn't ask me how long I had been here and my license was brand new since I just had my addy changed....

    why is your DL so new??? could you get an MVR to show you have been in GA longer

    Hi Maggie.

    I guess someone told you this at a gun store? If so, have you tried a different store. I'm not sure if there are any restrictions regarding residency other than you have to be a Georgia resident. One day vs. one month vs. one year, you're still a Georgia resident regardless of how long.

    Like I said, you might want to try a different store.

    Um...how can they even tell how old your license is? :?

    Sure...they can tell the exam date on it...that's the date it was issued. So what? Mine says 5-26-2005. That's just when I got it renewed after the previous one expired.

    Bunch'a goobers.

    Go somewhere else!

    I was going to post a comment wondering why the shop would be so reluctant to sell their products.

    Then I remembered what a recent FFL holder told me. After going through all the info and application process with the BATFE agent, he threw up his hands and said, "I get it. You don't want me to sell guns, but I'm going to try anyway."

    The BATFE certainly puts the fear of Uncle Sam into the dealers with the endless list of tiny mistakes and clerical errors that could cost them their license, at best, and send them to prison, at worst.

    The explaination one gave

    The explaination one guy gave me was that a bad guy from a gunhate state, oh let's say the mayor of NYC, could come here, go to DVM give up his NY
    DL, get a GA DL, buy all the guns he could carry, and go back to NY and sell
    them to more bad guys. Yes, I know there would be a multi-form for handguns, but he's using a made address anyway. Bankrobbers don't worry about speeding during their get away. I hate to admit it, but this could and possibly has happened.

    Were you trying to buy from a store that was targeted by Bloomberg's illegal sting?

    Doesn't that only apply to nonimmigrant aliens? I guess my next question is, Maggie, are you a nonimmigrant alien?

    As they say on South Park

    I've learned something here today. Thanks
    So now how do I get an overlap to buy during that 90 day period ??
    They took my old DL when I got my new one.
