    DeKalb County broke Georgia Law, as Georgia Law imposes time limits for the issuance of Georgia Weapons Carry Licenses throughout the State, and due to State Preemption, DeKalb County can not abstain from those time impositions.
    Relevant Statute: 16-11-129(d)(4), and Court Action Section 16-11-129(j).

    Well, Dekalb is unique in that they wait for an optional report from the State Mental Health system. There is no statutory time limit for this report. Dekalb County Police however are breaking the law for making people wait 30 days to get fingerprinted. There are lawyers working on this issue.

    DeKalb County HAS to follow State-wide Preemption of Firearms Laws.
    Georgia Code 16-11-129(J) states:
    Any Person who has been Hospitalized as an INPATIENT in any Mental Hospital or Alcohol or Drug Treatment Center within the five years immediately preceding the Application. The Judge of the Probate Court may require any Applicant to sign a Waiver Authorizing any Mental Hospital or Treatment Center to inform the Judge whether or not the Applicant has been an Inpatient in any such Facility in the last five years and Authorizing the Superintendent of such Facility to make to the Judge a recommendation regarding whether the Applicant is a threat to the Safety of others and whether a License to Carry a Weapon should be issued. When such a Waiver is required by the Judge, The Applicant shall pay a fee of $3.00 for reimbursement of the cost of making such a Report by the Mental Health Hospital, Alcohol, or Drug Treatment Center, or the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities, which the Judge shall remit to the Hospital, Center, or Department. The Judge shall keep any such Hospitalization or Treatment Information Confidential. It shall be at the Discretion of the Judge, considering the circumstances surrounding the Hospitalization and the Recommendation of the Superintendent of the Hospital or Treatment Center where the Individual was a Patient, to issue the Weapons Carry License or Renewal License.

    Obstensibly..., Georgia Code 16-11-129(J) does not require checks beyond 5 years immediately preceeding the date of The Application for a Weapons Carry License, AND The Report is irreleveant when and where only OUTPATIENT Treatment is recieved.

    Georgia Code 16-11-129(d)(1) furher states:
    (d) Investigation of Applicant; Issuance of Weapons Carry License; [or] Renewal.
    (1) For both Weapons Carry License Applications and Requests for License Renewals, the Judge of The Probate Court SHALL within five days following the Receipt of The Application or Request direct the Law Enforcement Agency to Request a Fingerprint based Criminal History Records Check from the Georgia Crime Information Center and Federal Bureau of Investigation.

    This HAS to be done within 5 days of the reciept of The Application, not 30 days.

    All in a week

    Congratulations on receiving your GFL. I got mine surprisingly within a week. However, I live within Carroll county boundaries. Only problem was, the local PD stated they had a hard time getting a good enough fingerprint, but guess what? My GFL had a fingerprint on it! You never know anymore.
