Topeka, Kan. — Last year set a record for the number of concealed carry applications filed in the state of Kansas.

According to Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt, 24,181 Kansans applied for the permits in 2013. That exceeded the previous one-year record by 50 percent, which was 15,707 in 2012.

“Record numbers of Kansans are exercising their Second Amendment rights and taking advantage of the Kansas concealed carry law,” Schmidt said. “We’re working hard to provide them top-quality customer service in the permitting process.”

Concealed carry was enacted by the Kansas Legislature in 2006. As of January 2, there are more than 75,000 active permits in the state.
