I just called to check on the status of my permit application. Many of you know that I moved to Georgia in December, then applied for my permit on Jan. 14th in Hall Co. I just talked to Lisa at Hall Co. Probate Court and she very matter of factly told me that first time permits take 3 1/2 months! When I told her Ga. law says 60 days she put me on hold to check the status. When she came back it was to tell me that my state BG check is not complete yet (much less the FBI one). I politely pointed out that Ga. law says permits shall be issued within 60 days, and that issuing in 3 1/2 months makes Hall Probate Court in violation of Ga. law. She said, 'well, I guess we're violating the law then'. Like it didn't matter at all. She said she would have the judge call me. Maybe the judge can explain how this is legal and where the responsibility for the delay lies.
