What would you do? (Sheriff dragging feet)
Sandy and I applied for our CCW's on October 21st, 2005. Last Friday marked 90 days since our application. Now, the people involved have had their problems (Cmdr. Oreskey's father died, his replacement is new, etc., etc., ad nauseum).
Here is the law:
If the sheriff does not receive the results of the fingerprint checks conducted by the bureau and by the federal bureau of investigation within ninety days after receiving a permit application, the sheriff shall determine whether to grant or deny the permit application without considering the fingerprint check information. If, upon receipt of the information, the sheriff finds that the permit was issued or denied erroneously, based on the criteria specified in section 18-12-203 (1) and (2), the sheriff shall either revoke or issue the permit, whichever is appropriate.
What would you do? We're at 100 days since application and the department keeps blowing us off. Who do you report the Sheriff's dept to for breaking the law? The State Attorney General maybe?
We are at our wits' end trying to get these permits. Seems like the powers that be are just dragging us out.
BTW, all checks came back OK, the Sheriff's department has our money and we're just sitting here waiting.
