Wisconsin: Right-to-Carry permit applications swamp state agency

Posted: 12.19.11 02:12 AM

In less than six weeks, 56,000 people applied for a permit under Wisconsin's new concealed carry law and thousands more bought handguns, swamping the state agency handling the required background checks. The applicants so far amount to about 1% of the state's population, and very few of them have been rejected for a permit. The number of state background checks for handgun purchases is also up more than 50% for the year another sign of the large numbers of people taking advantage of the new concealed carry law.
