Concealed weapons permits starting to level off


Concealed weapons permits sky rocketed in KOTA Territory after recent national conversations about gun control.

But with talk of gun control quieting down, are people still rushing to get their permits?

According to Pennington County Police Captain Marty Graves, the numbers in Pennington County are starting to level off.

Graves said there was a significant increase in 2012 but now numbers are getting back to normal.

Neighboring Meade county reported a total of 380 people with permits in 2012, currently they have 798, a significant increase from last year.

Pennington County also saw a significant increase earlier in the year.

"The first 3 months of 2013 we were 978 pistol permits over what we were in 2012, for the last 3 months we are about 250 above what we were this time last year. So it is starting to level off," said Graves.

Other KOTA Territory county Sheriffs we talked to said there were increases with permits in their counties but currently things have started to slow down.
