Concealed Guns Permits Remain Popular in Kansas

KSCB News - July 22, 2015 3:12 pm

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – The Kansas attorney general’s office says it received 9,805 applications for concealed gun permits for the fiscal year ending June 30.

Attorney General Derek Schmidt said in a news release Tuesday that he expects the program to remain popular even with the law passed by the Legislature this year allowing eligible Kansans to carry concealed guns without a license.

He noted Kansas licenses are recognized by 36 other states, most which still require a permit in order to carry a concealed firearm.

Kansas has received 100,769 applications since the program began in 2006, and issued concealed gun permits for 98,035 of those.

About a quarter of those requests were made in 2013, when the number of applications peaked at 25,361.

More than 90,000 Kansans have active concealed carry licenses.
