TOPEKA, Kansas – The Kansas Attorney General’s Office says the state received the second highest number of concealed carry applications in the last fiscal year.
The attorney general announced in a news release Monday that more than 14,205 applications were received between July 1, 2013, and June 30 this year.
The highest number of applications in one fiscal year came in last year, when 25,316 applications were received.
Attorney General Derek Schmidt says more than 83,000 Kansans currently have active concealed carry permits. The state has received 90,000 applications since 2006.
“The concealed carry program continues to be popular for Kansas citizens interested in becoming trained and licensed to protect themselves and their families,” Schmidt said. “Our office will continue to administer this program in an efficient manner as the Legislature intended.”
Thirty-six other states recognize Kansas’ concealed carry permits.
