It has been a record-breaking year for concealed carry weapons in Boone County. As of December, the Sheriff’s Department was on pace to field the highest amount of permit requests it’s ever had, topping the 2013 record. 

The uptick in requests this year surprised even the Sheriff’s Department, which had to request a budget amendment in October to account for additional revenue and expenses from the applications.

The Boone County Sheriff’s Department said the total number of newly issued and renewed conceal carry permits has increased so far in 2013.
