TOPEKA – For the second consecutive month, a record number of people has applied for permits to carry concealed handguns, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced Monday.
Schmidt said his office received 3,573 applications for concealed carry permits during February, which is a new single-month record. The previous record was set in January, when 3,167 permit applications were received.
Before January, the single largest month in the program’s six-year history was 1,651 applications received in March 2012.
Schmidt’s office administers the concealed carry licensing program. He said his concealed carry licensing unit is working hard and doing its best to keep up with the sharp spike in demand. As of March 1, there are 53,180 active concealed carry permits issued by the State of Kansas.
