EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) The number of gun permits issued by the state rose by 83 percent during 2013 from the previous year.


The Evansville Courier & Press reported Sunday that state police issued 111,000 personal protection permits in 2013. At the end of the year, Indiana had 538,000 active firearms license holders,

State police had generally received about 4,500 applications per month until last year, when deadly shooting events including that at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut in December 2012 led President Barack Obama to seek stricter ammunition policies and universal background checks. Indiana gun permit applications surged to 23,000 in January 2013, and applications for the first six months of the year reached 90,000.

State police add five workers to process permits. Bursten says those five positions will remain filled indefinitely.
