So my renewal CCW permit came in the mail the other day. The good news is that Metro is processing them at below 90 days again. The bad news is that Nevada's process sucks. From what I understand, Utah saves the fingerprint info on file and can just resubmit to the FBI.
Utah is fast; like three days fast. I can forgive them for the new photos thing because they'll take decent self-taken photos at home using a passport photo app. Of course I was sick that day and I looked like an unshaven Yeti...
I'm personally glad that Metro made sure my fingerprints didn't change. I've recently been exposed to that stuff that made Peter Parker into Spiderman so I was kinda worried of random biological problems.
You'd think that the one part of the Records Bureau that helps people save their own lives and deter crime would be a little better staffed and more efficient. I don't think Lombardo or his predecessors saw empowering people to have a recourse when caught up as victims as a good thing.
I'm looking forward to the day Strict Scrutiny sinks the permit requirement altogether.
