Interesting Data Point

My Arizona CCW expired this month, so last month I filled out the renewal form and mailed them a cashier’s check.

It’s been a few weeks.  No permit.

So I called them today.  “We’re currently processing only those applications that came in before February 15,” I was told. “At the start of the year, it seems like EVERYBODY wanted to get a permit.  We’re buried in applications.”

This is in a state where a permit is not required for carrying concealed.  I have one because it gets me out of the instant background check when I purchase a firearm, and it also lets me carry in several other states (but no longer in Nevada).

I was advised to give them “another couple of weeks” before checking back.
