Check this bull out. So waiting a whole two and a half weeks after actually taking the CCW class, I finally got the state form confirming my participation in the class in the mail. Happy to finally have it, I took it immediately to the county sheriff's office to get the ball rolling on the next bit of bureaucratic crap. Basically, the course of action is to give 30 bucks to the sheriff for a background check and another 30 bucks to the state police for a simultaneous back ground check. The Dept. of Redundancy Dept. shtick is bad enough, but I can't even send in my paper work because the sheriff's office is out of Insta-Matic film. I can't send in the certification for review with out a picture. And, that's right, I can't send in the picture because our po-dunk sheriff's office can't keep the required film in stock. Their answer to me was "call back in a week to see if FedEx delivered it". I really can't believe it. I'm mad enough to call the county attorney's office about this. It may seem like a minor inconvenience, but when you think about it I'm being denied my right to timely processing by incompetence. It's like showing up to the voting booth and told you can't vote because they forgot to bring the curtains that go around the booth. This whole situation just agitates me on general principles.
