Usually when I renew my gun permit it is a half hour stop at the police station. They do it twice a month and there may be one or two people ahead of you. Yesterday my town had renewals from 12-8 & I stopped by at 2pm. They told me there was a 3 1/2 hour wait, so I left my name and went back at 5:00 pm. When I finally got called at 7:15 p.m. the officer was delighted that I was a renewal. He said that I was only the 4th renewal of the day. Everyone else was a new applicant for either a FID card or licence to carry. He said that he has never seen as many new applicants as he has seen this year already. No idea how many will be approved.
