I got my call on Apr. 20. I've heard nothing since. They say it can take up to 3 months. I'll be waiting. Shemp

I received a call today (May 13th) from the investigator conducting my background investigation and he spent a total of about 10 min asking me questions. The first part was verifying my personal info, second part was criminal history, drug use, alcohol consumption, firearms training, what firearm I was planning to carry and why I wanted a permit and why am I applying now. After all of that he asked to speak with my wife who was asked 3 questions. 1. Was she aware that I applied? 2. Did she have an issue with it? 3. Has there been any domestic violence in the house? The investigator told me they hired a new unit to handle all of the applications to include the backlog of apps that were old as well as new. He told me I should here something within the next 60 days. This appears to be moving along pretty fast. I hope this pace keeps up and I get approved soon.

That would put you just shy of 90 days...kinda ridiculous if you ask me

Kinda stupid to ask about domestic violence, you already have a gun lol.

The questions are all typical. Do you have G&S?. I'm very surprised to hear the investigation interview was conducted over the phone. I say that because it sounds like you do, or you feel you do have G&S and the few people that reported they got the phone interview did not get the permit.

They are always going to be typical as the investigator basically said he had a script of questions he had to ask. He told me that the investigators prefer to conduct the phone interviews to help speed up the process of getting through the backlog of apps they have. I would assume they are probably under a deadline or have a quota they have to meet and waiting for a face to face interview for 10 minutes worth of questions would only hold up their processing time.

We were just talking about this with my brother (lives in NC) over the weekend. My wife was interviewed, they asked her if she would be worried about having guns in the house or with me being allowed to carry.

She literally laughed out loud (politely). We've owned guns (not one or two) since I was 13 years old, handguns since 21. They KNOW I own several firearms. If there was any issue wit violence or any fear of guns or them possibly being used against her, I think they would have known it within the past 19 years.

Effin dumb.

Well sure they want to get the apps off their desk. But I think the phone interviews are only being used on the apps the MSP do not expect to be approved due to lack of G&S. So they use the phone interview to burn through apps lacking G&S.

I could be very wrong but I do not know of one person that was approved and got the phone interview. If anyone here did get their permit and they got the phone interview please let us know.

If they make you go in for a face to face, where do you have to go. That in of itself is a friken PITA and should be tossed out as unconsititional.

"Hey you want to carry, take off work, lose a days pay and come talk to us, then we will think about giving you one..."
