After a record year for permit applications to carry a concealed weapon in the state of Ohio, some applicants report waiting months just to schedule an appointment in Cuyahoga County.
Ohio Attorney General’s Office records show that county sheriffs issued a record 117,953 new concealed carry permits and 40,982 renewal permits in 2016.
Ohio law requires counties to process the applications within 45 days of their submissions. But there is no requirement for how long applicants can wait to schedule an appointment.
Recent applicants say the wait for appointments, especially in Cuyahoga Co., is longer than you’d think.
A Cuyahoga Co. spokesperson said the average wait time is 6 weeks.
