Oregon Stopping Conceal Carry Permits For WA Applicants
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office says it will temporarily stop processing new concealed handgun license applications for residents of Washington state. Lt. Steve Alexander says the suspension will give the county's licensing unit time to play catch-up on what's now a four-month backlog in applications. A concealed-weapons permit in Washington does not work in Oregon. If a Washington resident wants to carry a gun in both states, he or she must get a non-resident license from Oregon.
