A federal judge in Atlanta recently issued a Temporary Restraining Order in favor of a Georgiacarry.org member. The Order requires a local probate judge and the Department of Public Safety to process the member’s application for a firearms license without disclosing his social security number. The basis for the lawsuit is the federal Privacy Act.

The lawsuit also seeks to prevent probate courts and the Department of Public Safety from demanding that applicants disclose their employment information in order to apply for a firearms license.
