I just went through the process (including getting an updated driver's license) to apply for a gun license in Cherokee County. Basically, everything went exactly how I expected, with the exception that it didn't take nearly as long. Start to finish, I was done inside of three hours, and that included four visits to three government entities in three separate locations.

First I picked up the application with fingerprint cards, and saw on the "requirements info" topsheet where they required proof of social security. I ignored that for the time being and went over to the Detention Center for fingerprinting. No problems there, and no wait at all. They did them digitally, very easy and clean.

Then I went back to the Probate Court, with my fingerprint cards, completed application (minus ssn and employment info) ... and I was also armed with a printout of the Privacy Act and the SSN TRO someone supplied me in another thread. I walked up and (instead of immediately going on the offensive) asked if she had a copy of the newer form, so I could use that instead. I patiently explained that there was a newer form that did not include ssn/employment, since that info is no longer required.

No she didn't have a newer form.

Then can I just turn this one in without the social?
No. Even if it isn't on the form, we still need it for the GBI background check.

So the GBI can't do a background check on me without my ssn?
No.

What does this office do with the ssn?
We make a copy of your sscard along with your driver's license and keep it with your application.

So you will not accept an application without my social filled in?
No.

Despite any argument I produced and all my information regarding the Privacy Act, I could not get her to accept the application without a social. Finally I asked if there was any sort of expiration date associated with the fingerprint cards (not wanting to have to obtain them again if they later said mine were too "old"). She said no, that I had paid for those and they were mine. So I gathered up all the papers and left.

Now what?

For some reason I can't download any pdf's from this site ... but based on the title of the link you posted, no I didn't bring that one with me. I showed her this.

No I didn't get her name. I almost asked before I left, but didn't because she just seemed to be reciting what she had been told. Not really a key player in the process. She was actually pretty nice. Didn't seem to understand why I was reluctant. She said "we are the only ones who will see it". How reassuring!

Well, follow Gunny's instructions and it can be taken from there. What I tried to attach was the order from a Federal Judge against the Henry County Probate judge in regards to asking for SSN information.

Welcome FireHouse!

The pdf you were refered to is an order by a FEDERAL District Court Judge to a Georgia Probate Judge. That order does two things: 1) Directed the Henry County Probate Judge to issue without requiring an SSN and; 2) To issue within 60 days as Georgia law requires. There was, also, an ancillary order to pay the GCO attorney $7700+ in costs and fees.

If the Cherokee Judge is smart you may get your GFL sometime next week, if not and your situation is litigated I'm betting that the process will be rather quick.

Stick with us!

:hardhead: Hammer time... lol

Welcome to GeorgiaCarry, FireHouse. Only 8 short months ago the probate judges could do this with absolutely no fear of the consequences. Watch how they react now. :bat:

Thanks for the welcome. Nothing like joining a group and having them go to bat for you right away! Obviously I'm glad I stopped by the GCO booth last weekend, and learned what I did about the forms and Cherokee county.
