I think it’s either, they wanted to stop gun sales without the political headache so have just shut down PTAs.
Or, probably more likely, all or most LRD staff are working from home and can’t access police systems when not in the office.
I have no issue at all with the LRD staff working from home and I hope they are. However, I do think another solution could be found to keep PTAs being processed.
I don’t see how it can be a backlog when I had two different dealers tell me last week that PTAs were being approved in 24 hours. That tells me they had worked through the backlog.
