    Default delco permit issue time

    I applied for a permit to carry in mid january....current permit expires in mid march. Was told today that there will be a 30 day delay beyond the regular 6 week wait time. The arrogant and uninfomed secretary in the sheriffs office denied that there was any law regarding a 45 day requirement for issuance or denial.

    Their backlog is not my problem and is not included as an exception to the time requirement in the statute.

    When I pay my county taxes, they would not be very understanding in any backlog I would have in paying my bills.

    Aside my experience, has anyone applied for a permit in the time frame of mid january and have not received response?

    I hope they don't.take that long. I applied 2.21.13 (see thread "Anyone...")

    There has to be someone we can contact that knows the law that can enforce the 45 day rule on them.

    Tell them to use the thousands of $$$ they stole from us in over charging for LTCFs for years to hire more clerks.


    Law is law. Go down on the 45th day and demand your license

    My wife applied and got back her application approval letter less than the 45 days required, but we just went today to pick it up and it took just under 2 hours to wait, holy crap alot of people are applying for permits these days!

    thank you for your support.... I will be going to the office on Friday 3/8. I will post again and let you of the status. It is bad enough to take more than the 45 days, but for the sheriff's office to deny any law regarding the timely requirement within the law is inexcusable. Furthermore, they should revisit their policies regarding the refusal to accept application more that 60 days from the expiration of the permit.
