Kansas Sets One-Year Concealed-Carry Application Record

KSAL StaffJuly 10, 2013
A law taking effect Monday allows people with concealed-carry permits to bring their guns into public buildings.

A record number of Kansans applied for permits to carry concealed handguns during the recently ended Fiscal Year.

According to Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt’s Office, they received 25,340 applications for concealed carry permits between July 1, 2012, and June 30, 2013. This number was more than double the previous fiscal-year record of 12,408 permit applications in Fiscal Year 2012.

The office administers the concealed carry licensing program. The law enacting the program was created by the 2006 Kansas Legislature. Concealed carry permits have been issued in the state since 2007.

As of July 1, there are 63,455 active concealed carry permits issued by the State of Kansas. One year ago, on July 1, 2012, the number of active permits was 44,307.

The Attorney General’s Office is currently processing permit applications in 82 days or less except those awaiting additional information.

Details about the latest concealed carry statistics can be found by visiting the Kansas Attorney General’s website at www.ag.ks.gov.
