PORTLAND, Ore. —

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.

Once the backlog become manageable, the sheriff's office will reopen the application process for Washington residents.

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.

The licensing unit will still process renewals, so the suspension does not affect Washington residents who already have an Oregon license.
