TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Attorney General Derek Schmidt says more Kansas residents sought and obtained permits for concealed carry permits for guns in 2013 than any year since the law took effect. Schmidt's office issued a report Monday saying that 24,000 applications were filed last year, an increase of more than 50 percent over 2012. The office received 24,181 applications in 2013, including 1,036 in December, which take an average of 30 days to process. More than 75,000 active permits have been issued in Kansas. Permits are good for four years before they have to be renewed. Permit holders who allow their licenses to lapse more than six months from their expiration date must complete required training to have it reinstated.
