High Demand for Concealed Carry Permits in Kansas

KSAL StaffJune 6, 2013
The high demand for concealed carry permits is continuing in Kansas.

The high demand for concealed carry permits is continuing in Kansas.

The Wichita Eagle reports the state had taken 22,124 applications through the first 10 months of the fiscal year, which started last July. In all of fiscal year 2012, Kansas residents submitted 12,408 applications.

In response to the demand, the Kansas attorney general’s office hired more staff and temporarily reassigned workers to help process the applications. Some residents had complained the state was not processing applications within the required 90 days.

Don Brown, a spokesman for the office, says applications are now being processed in 88 days or less.

The office says 3,462 applications were received in April, down slightly from the 4,071 in March, which was the highest number of applications ever in a month.
