For your convenience we now offer Permitium Service for PISTOL PURCHASE PERMITS.  Click here for details and to apply.

 

Because of changes in the law that took effect December 1, 2015, there is up to a fourteen (14) Day waiting period for firearm purchase permits. This includes extra paperwork and data entry that also has to be completed by the clerk’s office and the mental health system. 

We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause, but the surge in permit request has left us no alternative. We thank you for patience and understanding.
