Big increase in concealed handgun permits in Kentucky

From the OldhamEra.com:

Data from the Kentucky State Police shows 24,908 new permits were issued in 2011 and 19,410 renewals.

That is 45,000 licenses issued in one year — and the license is renewed once every five years.

Totals for the past five years show 176,448 permits issued over the past five years — about 4 percent of the state’s population.

After Pres. Barack Obama’s election in 2008, gun sales in Kentucky spiked. Then, in 2009, the state’s CCDW permits jumped by almost 10,000, a 61 percent increase. . . .

The article then goes on to give a very false impression about the risks of having guns in the home.

A previous article in that newspaper is available here.
