    It's too bad there isn't a market for CWLs, both the trading floor and my flash trader's parlor are buzzing with the numbers!

    I wonder how they track the number of "downloads." I mean I probably opened the application form from the DOJ website at least three times this morning.

    I'm surprised to see them saying that they could start issuing permits this afternoon. Not that there isn't a reason as to why they couldn't - it just seems like it would be far too efficient for a government agency.

    I didn't think there'd be that many. I can see the $$$ in the state's eyes. I hope we can get off the money train and back to the Constitution.

    Are you sure it isn't because he was trying to get his steeeeekin' permit?

    You could go to the DOJ and get the application and fill it out and give it to them on the spot. So some people did that today, hence why some permits may be mailed out to recipients by the end of the day today.

    and that's exactly why they should have just started issuing them on the spot as they were submitted. If they can be mailing them back out the same day then they could have just printed them and handed them over. Save all that postage.

    That makes way to much sense for an agency staffed with Democratic appointees. However, I am impressed that any permits were actually issued "same day". My thought was that DOJ would take every one of the 45 days allotted to them by the law.

    This...^^^^ I am EXCITED that they started processing and printing (sending) permits today.... What I thought was going to take 45 days could happen by the end of the week....

    Did I say I was EXCITED.... no wait...

    As of 3:45 p.m., 145 applications had been received by the Department of Justice and of those, 123 had been approved and 85 had been printed. Applications could not be submitted until Tuesday and by 9 a.m., 83,000 forms had been downloaded.
    So I'll get mine before Van Hollen and Walker?

    123 approved and 85 printed? I can print 85 pages in about five minutes. What are they doing, printing them by hand? Do they have one calligraphy artist handmaking your licenses? Congrats once again guys!

    Well, wait til tomorrow (Wed) when all the mailed applications start coming in. THEN it'll slow down.

    If van hollen got the first permit, may I see his qualifications to make sure they meet the rules HE made?

    The sun rose today. The sun set. The streets are not rivers of blood... So no matter what asshatery the DOJ engaged in today they couldn't overshadow a historical event.

    Van Hollen received the first permit. Big deal. He has still pissed many people off and may find himself looking for a new job as a result.

    On a more positive note, I'm tickled to hear that the DOJ is processing applications and issuing permission slips from mommy as fast as they can. I certainly had my doubts regarding state government's expediency. This one time I've been proved wrong.

    So...... YAY. (dancing banana)
