This is a discussion on Kentucky, "Shall Issue" and What happens at 90 days? within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Originally Posted by cardnation All clear now?

From KSP: "The processing time for each application will vary. It depends on different circumstances, such as background checks or whether the application was submitted correctly." The application was not submitted correctly therefor it can't be processed.
This. Why is anyone but you filling out such an important document? It really does sound like you may have to do quite a bit of legwork to track this one down. What's in your favor is that KY is very pro-CCDW, and I'd be surprised if you can't eventually sort it out.Yeah sure, except the part about why the Jefferson County Sheriff's Dept. filled out...what?
I'm not sure why some of you guys are so on the offensive here? What was I to do? Cause a scene at the Sheriffs office while I'm asking them to submit my paperwork to carry a gun? That didn't seem like a good idea at the time and still doesn't seem like a good idea.
Your situation just sounds....weird, especially given the more common experience from others in the Commonwealth. Don't take it as aggression. We're digging around an odd-sounding situation. Something doesn't sound right, and digging for more info often clarifies.
Would I cause a scene? No. Would I let someone else fill out the form? No. But then again, I wasn't there in a Sheriff's office, just trying to get things done properly. So it's easy for me to imagine what I'd do.
If you can get the Sheriff's department on your side, things should go smoother. That's what I meant by legwork...face-to-face requests are so much more effective.
I am not fussing at you and I truly wish I could help. I am just amazed that a county like Jefferson would be so ill-informed or take such gross measures. Looks to me like you done every thing right and the fault lies with the JCSO. As mentioned above, perhaps a Attorny would be in order at this point. Not as a battering ram but something to indicate your sincerity to get the matter resolved in short order.
I truly wish you the best my friend.

At this point I've done all I can go, having submitted the proper paperwork for the correction. However its frustrating knowing that they still have not logged my change yet, two weeks after I discovered the issue.
Now I will begin calling every Mon, Wed, Fri to check the status until they tell me its been issued. I just think its absurd that a tax paying law abiding citizen has to go through so much trouble for something like this. I mean my ONLY brush with the law is a speeding ticket about 7+ years ago.
Fayette County Clerk filled out the form for my wife and I both then handed them to us to review. Can't recall if we were asked to sign it anywhere.
Edit added: On my wifes certificate her name was listed incorrectly ( her maiden name became her legal middle name in NJ when we were married). But the certificate had both her first name and middle names appearing in the first name space. The clerk said it was up to my wife, request a corrected certificate or submit as is then see if anyone at the state police rejected it. She decided to take a chance and submit it as is and the clerk was willing to add a handwritten note explaining the mistake and that she had verified the name on my wife's drivers license was correct. So far still waiting on both our ccdw flash packs its been less than a month I think.
I wanted to give an update with how this situation turned out for those that may be interested.
After much feedback, I began calling every other business day to ask for an update. I will say the KSP folks were very pleasant to work with.
It took just under three weeks for my change of information request to be processed (2/4/13). Then 3 days for the background check to go through (completed and mailed 2/7/13) . I received my "flash pack" on 2/9/12.
I'm happy to report I did not have to find out what happens on day 90.
Thank you to all those that volunteered feedback.
my KY permit was done correctly and took well over 90 days to get back from Richmond.
I,too, live in Louisville Ky and the lady at the sheriff's office also filled out spaces on the paper work. However, when she asked for my SS number I asked her to slide me the paper so I could put that down myself, did not want to say it out loud in a roomfull of people.
Which should mean that "a few weeks" shouldn't be seen as outrageous, even if it happens to result in your originally-incomplete application going over the 90 days.
