As some of you saw in my other posts i was a victim of a armed robbery 3 weeks ago. My license was one of the things they got. I went to the probate court in fulton county (downtown) and I got another in 1 Hr! I paid 5 dollars and showed my drivers license and that was it. The judge signed it right in front of me. Wow was i surprised. I wasnt even thinking i was going to get it today. Lucky me.

Wow, that's awesome. Does anyone know how replacements work? Is there a probate record of your license that they can look at to see that you were previously issued a license?

Mike,

There is a LOT of history behind why things are that way in Fulton. It did not used to be that way.

They can look in the DB and find you, but make sure u have a valid id before u try anything. But There is no DB the police can look into.

Wow, took longer than I thought to find it. Mainly because I thought it was in the law when it is really a thing the probate courts as a collective (Council of Probate court Judges) have to do.

Probate Courts Statewide Records Retention Schedules

SERIES TITLE: PISTOL TOTERS’ LICENSE APPLICATION FILE

Schedule: 83-0770-A

Consist of: The licensing of county residents to carry a pistol or other firearm. Included are approved and denied applications for licenses to carry a pistol or other firearm and supporting documents. Applications contain information supplied by the applicants that is pertinent to their eligibility to apply for the license.
Supporting documents include mental health waiver forms, law enforcement reports, rap sheets, and other documents relating to issuance of the license.

Retention: Hold nine (9) years; Then destroy. As an alternative to maintaining in the office nine (9) years, transfer to a local holding area after five (5) years is possible.

Exception: Any part of record series created prior to 1983 may be transferred to local holding area after three (3) years and destroyed after seven (7) years. (Prior to 1983, licenses were valid for three (3) years only.)

Implementation recommendation: Because licenses are confidential records and because they have short-term value, it is recommended that they be maintained in file cabinets rather than being bound into post binders.

Shoot, a year ago in Fulton you would still be waiting for your original GFL from two years ago.

Congrats on your re-issuance. Even though following the law is no reason for praise :lol:

Did you tell them HOW you lost your previous license?

Yes

I told them it was stolen and I did have to fill out a affidavit. I had to do a quick background check at the police office (no charge) and I was done. I choose to wait because the clerk said i might get it back today. In about 15 mins. there it was. The only difference is they have a reissue date on the card in the fingerprint box. They did give me a new license #. Iv had nothing but good experences from the courthouse downtown. Got my original in about 45 days.

What would be the difference between the background check they did for your replacement and the original? If they're the same one, I don't see why it would take more than a week for new licensees.
