    If the twit-minded liberals get their way and we get Hillarycare, and it goes how we know it's going to go, you will have rioting in the streets, and all we'll be able to do is say, "I told you so. Now don't get injured in the riots, because you can't get stitches until next August."

    It's amazing how people can manage to blind themselves and not see what's coming, coming.

    c) Are they trying to accelerate the transition to digital scanning at the local level?
    d) All of the above?
    The simple answer is that you were lied to.

    THERE IS NO BACKLOG WITH THE GBI OR FBI

    You can check the status of your own information as it makes its way through the background check process. GeorgiaCarry.Org (GCO) has put together this guide on how to do so: http://www.georgiacarry.org/cms/geor...st-but-verify/

    The delays in the GFL process can be attributed directly to the Probate Court 99% of the time. They take their sweet time, breaking state law in the process, because they feel like they are above the law.

    Please, join GCO and help us get these issues straightened out.

    Also, visit GeorgiaPacking.Org, it is the best source for up to date information about GA's gun laws.

    The reason I was "bashing" Georgia is because it has come to my attention (via this forum) just how hostile the supposedly "shall-issue" state of Georgia really is to its licensed concealed carriers.

    Can't carry on ANY public transportation.
    Can't carry at highway rest stops (where you'd seriously want to be able to carry.)
    There were other examples but honestly I didn't commit them to memory because I'd just as soon forget that the state of Georgia exists.
    GA's gun laws deserve bashing. They are horrible.

    Check out this map from GCO comparing GA's off limits areas to other states: http://www.georgiacarry.org/cms/abou...ibited-places/

    You will see that GA has the longest list of off limits areas of all the states that allow carry.

    Here, not only are there renewal fees ($65.25) but you are required to go through a $85.00 renewal class 4hrs + 30 rounds per weapon (approximately $10.00 ammo per weapon)!
    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    "A superior Operator is best defined as someone who uses his superior
    judgement to keep himself out of situations that would require a display of his
    superior skills."

    Hopefully, some of the Georgia laws will get changed in the next session of the General Assembly, thanks to GeorgiaCarry.org.

    Here's one of the bills being pushed by GCO for next session:

    http://www.legis.state.ga.us/legis/2.../sum/hb850.htm

    A BILL to be entitled an Act to amend Code Section 16-11-129 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, relating to a license to carry a pistol or revolver and temporary renewal permits, so as to require permits to be issued more quickly; to provide legislative findings; to provide for temporary permits for initial applicants when permits are delayed without cause; to provide for the return of application fees under certain circumstances where permits are not timely issued; to provide for related matters; to provide an effective date; to repeal conflicting laws; and for other purposes.
    It's good stuff!
