    If you follow the chain of events here: http://www.georgiacarry.org/cms/category/action-items/60-days/

    You will see that the GA Supreme Court has upheld a lower court ruling that Probate Judges issuing Georgia Firearms Licenses (GFLs) may wait as long as it takes to get complete background checks to issue licenses, regardless of the statutory 60-day time limit.

    Since an applicant with no disqualifying information does not even require a report to be submitted back to the judge (by the local law enforcement agency running the checks), they may now legally wait indefinitely to issue a GFL by waiting on a report that will never come.

    GA is now effectively a may-issue state.

    The issuing judges have been ignoring th 60 day time limit for years. Only recently did GCO file suit to get some closure on the matter.

    I don't think this will cause those judges to stop issuing licenses in a timely manner.

    GA residents cannot legally carry in GA without a GFL.

    When you move here, you have to suffer under our system as your old permit will no longer be honored.

    i understand that if you move there the out of state one is not honored. i'm talking like if you move there, is it a simple process to have your permit transferred over or do you have to go through the whole application process all over again

    i may be moving there from tennessee in summer 09 and i dont want to have my license and tags transferred

    When Hitler started killing Jews in Germany, I suppose the Jews in America could care less.

    There is no transfer. you have to go through the whole process.

    Hopefully you're moving to one of the few counties that issues them quickly. Some people have gotten theirs back in a matter of days, some have waited up to 2.5 years.

    History shows the Jews of America did very little.

    I, on the other hand, have a sufficient collection of guns to provide many Jews with the means of defense.

    This country will never be the same. Its just going to get worse.
    Minnesota has been through its CCW/Permit ups and downs as well.
    Seems like with every new governor the issue swings back the other way, every time. :ugh:

    Exactly...my point is that just because you have your permit already doesn't mean that it shouldn't be an issue to you.

    Are there limits to how many times a petition can be submitted?

    I don't know, but my answer would be who cares. Keep going until they cuff you.
