Effective 7/30/2021, we will temporarily freeze appointment scheduling for new gun permits so that we can make room for more.  We currently have over 3500 existing appointments scheduled.  Our plan is to process all existing applications by the end of November and then open slots for new appointments at that time.  If you currently have an appointment, you will be contacted and offered an earlier appointment date.  Once we have served all current applicants, we will reopen our calendar with earlier available dates and increased number of slots per day.


If you need to renew your current Weapons Carry License and you are within the time frame of 90 days before to 30 days after the expiration date on your license, please call our office at 770-288-7601 to schedule a renewal appointment.


We will not be scheduling any NEW permit appointments until we have served all our currently scheduled applicants.


Thank you for your patience as the demand for Weapons Carry Permits has been extraordinary.  We will continue to provide our other services such as birth and death records, marriage licenses, 10-13's, estates, guardianships, etc., while ensuring that we follow public health guidelines.  Please continue to check our website and look for updates on our Facebook page.


If you need to change your address or name on your current permit or you need a replacement permit, please click here for more information.  Replacement permits can now be requested by mail or drop-box.


Preliminary Online Applications:

You may now electronically submit the Preliminary Gun Permit Application securely online.  When filling out the preliminary gun permit appication online, if you are a renewal permit and are getting an error message, please select new license application.  When you arrive at the office, if you are eligible for a renewal permit, it will be converted to a renewal application and the renewal fee will be applied.  A clerk will convert it to a renewal application upon arrival at our office and apply the renewal application fee.  


After submitting the application online, you must schedule an appointment to meet with a clerk and finalize the application, pay the required fees and be fingerprinted and photographed.
