Today i went to my county sherrif's office and summited a form for a Pistol purchase permit and the lady took my application showed both my state ID and Work authorization and made me sign and form and told me she will sent it in for a criminal background check which i know I'm 100% clean. and now my case shows as pending online for a permit did i just make it through? What do you fellas think? I'm assuming the worst that can happen is if they say no to me. I just want to follow the rules thats all. I do however have an unregister/stolen handgun but I'm scared as death to even show it or take it with me. It's the same situation as driving with or without license in My opinion.

It is most certainly not the same as a Drivers License.
