    Student called yesterday, said he applied feb 24 and got his license yesterday. 43 days I think, he did prints of course but that's still pretty good

    Are there any up to date numbers on the applications and issued permits? We are almost a third of the way through the year and it would be interesting to see how many have applied.

    As of April 12

    Applications: 62,316

    Active: 29,720

    Denied: 1,271
    Vast majority of the denials are for technical reasons like typos and things but there are a few people who have been wrongfully denied including one instructor. Well be in court here shortly I suspect.

    Thanks for the info.

    Looks like the initial ISP projections are well below what was expected. Even so now roughly 1 out of every 240 people can be carrying legally.

    There are a few people who have been wrongfully denied. A suit was filed monday to address this. Otherwise im happy with the process for what it is but we have a lot of sheet to fix in the law itself

    Any update on removing some of the places we cannot carry?

    I like the new Georgia law; little chance that will happen hear in my lifetime.
