Like guns, Utah permits are flying off the shelf

It took four tries ("Sorry, the class is full"), but I finally got myself registered in a Utah concealed firearms permit class last week and have been jumping through the various hoops since before sending off the materials to Salt Lake. I stopped at the local bank branch last night after work to get the application notarized and had to laugh when the notary looked at the paperwork, looked at me, and said, "This is the fifth one of these I've seen just today -- same document."

Mind you, this is branch office in town of about 125,000 people.

It seems that guns and ammo aren't the only items that Second Amendment advocates, and gun owners in general, are interested in these days. The Utah permit is good in 29 states at the moment and costs $65 and change, plus registration in a class. You need to supply fingerprints and passport-quality photos, as well as a notarized signature. It's good for five years and might be a better investment in the long run -- who can say for sure? -- than that box of Winchester 9mm on the shelf at WallyWorld.

Its been that way since UTAH offered them though I am sure the demand is going up since GUNBANOBAMA and his cronies dont like CCW.
