The Wake County Sheriff’s Office will suspend pistol and concealed-carry permit applications until April 30 as demand surges amid the coronavirus outbreak, Sheriff Gerald Baker said Tuesday.

Applications that have already been submitted will continue to be processed, Baker said during a press briefing.

The number of pistol permit applications last week averaged 290 per day, or more than three times the roughly 90 applications per day during the same time period a year ago, officials said.
