WSP is working on their new system, unit, and process for centralized firearm background checks. They are anticipating a 2024 statewide implementation date. You can review milestone dates in the centralized firearm background check update. If you have questions about this process, please reach out to WSP. We also shared this same information via our email listserv for dealers. If you didn't receive it, please sign up below.
We won't move forward with a new firearm system until closer to this implementation.
The legislative session has started and there are a few bills relating to firearms. There are very little that actually impact us. We are the record keeper of firearm transactions and CPLs.
For questions about your CPL, please contact the law enforcement agency that processed it. Check their website for availability and updates on applying for or renewing your CPL. We don't issue or renew CPLs.
Our online system is stable and we continue to make small improvements. Washington State Patrol's new system may be up and running in 2024.
