Coronavirus impact on renewals
« on: March 23, 2020, 10:20:36 PM »
Hello Everyone,

First I want to say I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.  So unfortunately I drug my feet a little too long and didn't get my submission for my permit renewal submitted (in person at Wilmington courthouse) until January 20th.  As of yet I have not seen a new permit.  I'm assuming with everything being shut down all bets are off as to how long it will take to clean up any backlog once things (hopefully) get back to normal.  As a result I have a couple of questions

1. Has anyone that may have submitted a renewal in New Castle County as late as me received their updated permit or any other kind of notice?
2. I know in theory since I have submitted my renewal prior to the 5/2020 expiration I can continue to carry (plan on having appropriate documentation showing the submission with me).  Is that allowed indefinitely until such time as I have received my new permit or been notified my renewal was denied?

Any help or guidance that can be provided would be greatly appreciated thanks.

I would expect it to take longer, but I don't think we will be penalized for the delays.??

I believe the dead line for submitting the renewal application is some time in May. Like maybe the 31st.

1442(3) states you are good.   I would carry with me the expired permit, copy of my renewal WITH receipt attached   and a copy of 1442.

I would NOT carry out of State on De permit while expired.

When I submit my renewal I have an extra copy just for this reason.

I do NOT have official word, but read State will extend time 60 to 90 days. Again, NOT from official sources.

As your Delaware license is still valid, I would err on the side of caution and carry out of state.  If we see massive social unrest I would not want to be caught unarmed.  Having proof of Delaware law showing your license to still be valid should be enough.  I would not travel to any state that I cannot carry for the time being.

Saw in the State News this morning that people were lined up waiting to get in to Shooter's Choice, and the article said it was that way at most gun shops in the area. People looking for guns and ammo both. Gun shop in Smyrna almost cleaned out.

New to this group...wanted to provide some helpful information when submitting your renewal or new application to the court. The current situation is that the courts are closed to the public. We are receiving applications via US mail or a drop box (Kent County). I'm not sure if people are panicking or rushing to get their applications in, but we are receiving applications that have to be returned or require a phone call because items are missing, documents are incomplete, photos or payments missing, etc. This will definitely delay processing. It is important to read and FOLLOW all of the instructions. Take 5 minutes to go over your documents and confirm that everything is included. We are all trying to get through this and are doing everything we can to get these permits processed as timely as possible. A little help from the applicants would be appreciated and helpful. Thanks for your time.

I would be happy to provide information to anyone who has any questions. There are still a lot of unknowns but we're working through it.

Welcome.  One question.  What is the procedure if a license holder moves to a different county?  Do you have to get a new license with a new picture?

You will have to notify Superior Court in your new county of residence. There is a $5 fee for a new card and you may have to supply new photos since your new county doesn't have your file with the pictures.
