San Diego, CA –-(Ammoland.com) – In light of the recent increase in applications for firearm purchases as well as the reshuffling of personnel, the California Department of Justice (“DOJ”) has become severely backlogged in conducting background checks and issuing various licenses and permits. Turnaround times for Personal Firearms Eligibility Checks and Law Enforcement Gun Release Applications, along with common background checks for firearm acquisition, are seeing unprecedented delays. The licenses and permits delayed include unsafe weapons permits, certificates of eligibility (“COE”), large-capacity magazine (LCM) permits, entertainment firearms permits, and centralized list of firearm dealers permits. Currently, the DOJ is issuing temporary permits to avoid any lapses in the renewal of licenses and permits.
