Applications For Concealed Weapons Permit Increased in Yakima County

kima

A clean criminal record, some ink on the fingers and a little cash. That’s all you need if applying for a concealed weapons permit. Yakima Police say a lot of people are doing that these days. According to our news partner KIMA Action News Yakima Police averaged about 60 applications a month during the summer. That jumped to nearly 80 in October and shot past 100 in December. Yakima Police Department Lieutenant Michael Merryman says Yakima isn’t the only city busier than usual. Kittitas County officials say it’s now taking longer to process background checks to meet the demand. Sunnyside says applications there increased dramatically the week before Christmas. Officers say there’s no way to know if this trend will continue.
