This is bizarre of course. A news channel here had a segment on the increased interest in CCW courses across the nation and people renewing their licenses. Apparently the state here has fallen behind on processing and some people have waited a little too long to renew. The word is out the state has become flooded with renewals and new license applications. The state is supposedly adding people to speed up the paperwork. They did mention that there is some concern about the upcoming election as a motivator for people to get their permits. I suspect that there will be a mad scramble after the election if "you-know-who" gets elected.
