San Bernardino Carry Permit Applications Boom

posted on February 27, 2016

The ISIS-inspired terrorist shootings at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, Calif., last December has led to a ridiculous—and dangerous—backlog for those now applying for concealed weapons applications.

According to ABC10.com, San Bernardino County has reported a nine-fold increase in concealed weapons applications the month following the shooting, and Riverside County’s permitting process is so backlogged that it now takes a year-and-a-half to even meet with an official to submit an application.

“It’s ridiculous,” John R. Lott Jr. of the nonprofit Crime Prevention Research Center told the news station. “Most states in the country will get you a concealed-carry permit within at least 60 days. What if you have a woman who is being stalked or threatened? What is she supposed to do—wait a year and a half just to get an appointment?”
