Number of gun permits issued nearly quadruples

The number of gun permits issued in Kentucky quadrupled in the last ten years.

According to reports, State Police issued more than 59,000 concealed carry licenses last year.

That is a 447 percent increase from 2004, when nearly 11,000 were issued.

Meanwhile, the state legislature passed at least one dozen measures within the last decade to speed up the application process and gradually give permit-holders more flexibility.
