My Utah permit finally arrived today in the mail. I applied for my Utah permit January 27th and was starting to wonder when it would arrive. I tried to call the authorities in Utah Friday but their office was closed. I decided to wait until my mail arrived this morning before I called again, but luckily the permit was in the mail before I had to make a call.
On the letter that Utah sent with my permit this was stated in bold print, "this permit is valid contingent on a satisfactory criminal history report being received from the FBI. You will be notified... or of a revocation if the FBI criminal history report contains information of a disqualifying nature."
I already have my Nebraska carry permit and have no criminal background (except for minor in possession of tobacco and littering from when I threw a cigarette butt out my window when I was 17).
So I am wondering if Utah is so backed up in their permit process that they sent me my permit before having received the FBI background check because of statutory time limits on their approving or disapproving permit applications.
