State Files Answer in Federal SSN Case

    Just to add to Applying for and Receiving a Concealed Carry Permit. I as a first time applicant, and former deputy Sheriff applied for and received my carry license in less than a months time this past summer from the day I applied for it and got my finger prints done, to the day the probate office called me and told me to come get my card. I live and used to work in Richmond County.

    I was asked both for my SSN and my current employer’s name and address. Obviously, because I wanted the permit: I gave that information to my probate office. I know other GA citizens have issues with this, but I just wanted to point out a positive experience in getting a right to carry/shall issue card properly submitted and returned in the correct amount of time.

    I completely support and agree with the position of this organization and was one of the new members to join in August.
