With the activation of the Firearms Application and Registration System (FARS), firearms applications can now be completed online. This system has been mandated by the Governor’s Office to expedite the application process making it more applicant driven. FARS is taking the place of the paper application (STS 033) form. Applicants can apply for all of the same options as the paper application form with the exception of permits to carry.
