Requests for Local Gun Information Increase After Colo. Shootings
From gun shops to Sheriff's offices, there has been an increase in interest in guns and gun related permits since the shooting at a Colorado movie theater last week.
John Monson owns Bill's Gun Shop in Robbinsdale, he says he expected to see the increase, "We have a lot more people coming in for the first time, looking around. We're getting more people asking about the training programs. We're getting a lot more people asking about how do you go about, what's the process for buying a fire arm."
The same trend is evident in Scott County. Jan Nemanic takes permit requests in the Scott County Sheriff's Office, she says the number of calls is up, "We have gotten many phone calls about those permits, about how to acquire a carry permit. We've gotten about 20 calls since Friday." Nemanic says the volume is higher than expected, "We usually get, on a normal basis one call a week. So we have seen a significant change."
