Record number of Ohioans get conceal-carry licenses

THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH
The number of Ohioans licensed to carry concealed guns took a big jump last year.
Authorities issued 56,691 permits to carry concealed handguns in 2009, well above the previous high of 45,497 set in 2004, when the state first allowed residents to carry concealed firearms. In 2008, authorities issued 33,864 permits.
Attorney General Richard Cordray's office, which released the numbers, declined to speculate on the reasons for the jump. Some media reports have suggested that the election of President Barack Obama has driven interest in obtaining firearms.
"If there's something to take away from these numbers, it is that more and more Ohioans are comfortable exercising their right to carry concealed handguns," Cordray said in a news release. "We are pleased that we have a strong partnership with the county sheriffs who issue concealed-handgun licenses, and we will continue to work together to help eligible Ohioans take advantage of this law."
