I live in GA so it is shall issue, just a background check, pay for fingerprints and application, and wait about a month and you get your "firearms permit."
A lot of folks always think a course or test will weed out the bad guys. Maybe I am not understanding the purpose of the course or test. I would think the government would try to weed out people who would be prone to accidentally shoot someone or themselves. The permit is not to make the permit holder into some type policeman is it? If it is to reduce accidents, let's look at the number of permit holders who have accidentally shot someone or themselves while legally carrying outside of thier property. Plus, you cannot make a simple test to test how someone is going to react in a life or death situation. If it is to weed out criminals, then just a background check is sufficient. Am I missing the argument?
