William Thomas: Wait for gun permit is too long

July 6, 2014 

My California concealed weapon permit expires at the end of July and I was told that you could make the appointment for renewal 90 days in advance. I called two weeks ago and they gave me an appointment. I had to reschedule and now they say you can only do it online. When I went online, they are taking renewal appointments starting in February. They were supposed to streamline the renewal process and now I have to wait eight months without a concealed carry permit even though I have had one for six years. How is this streamlining the renewal process?
