Onslow County overload - the Sheriff's Office is flooded with requests for firearm and concealed weapon permits. Deputies say as of Friday, there are about 428 people on a waiting list.
Their permit appointments extend all the way into May. We're told at least 50 people send emails every day asking questions about them.
Right now, deputies say demand is so high. They can't process all the requests in a reasonable time. They are taking steps to speed the process.
They've reassigned 5 employees to the program. They'll be working overtime to clear up the backlog to try and cut down on the waiting time.
