Wayne County Clerk Mike Jankowski has informed me that the Wayne County Sheriff’s office and the County Clerk’s office is now able to again begin processing new pistol permits.
Amendments to existing permits were still processed during the state pandemic shutdown as long as no Brady check was required. These checks must be completed for an amendment only if the applicant has not had one in the past 5 years. Those with recent checks were able to complete amendments to their permit.
The state office responsible for running the Brady checks was shut down by the state. This prevented the Sheriff’s office from completing new pistol permits which all require a Brady check.
Thanks for the info Mike!
