I heard from a man yesterday who has applied for a concealed weapon permit in Bibb County. The county informed him it could take 9 months to process the application.
9 months? WTH?! That seems like a ridiculously long time. Is it just Bibb County or are other counties as slow?
[UPDATE:] Having never even thought of applying for a concealed weapons permit myself, I did not realize until you guys started commenting that the process goes through the probate court. Well, I know the probate judge in Bibb County. We’ve traded some emails on this one. Both he and his staff assure me that they process their licenses in a timely manner. The only time it take longer is if someone’s fingerprints have been rejected by the FBI, which appears to be the case in this situation.
Thanks Judge Self for clearing up this situation.
