The Colorado movie theater shooting rampage has more Oklahomans thinking about their safety.
People across the state are applying for gun permits in record numbers.
KRMG stopped by the gun show this weekend at Expo Square to see if they had higher numbers too.
Dennis Pearson helped organized the event.
He says, “I’d say we’re probably 20% busier than we were four years ago.”
Pearson says gun sales have been increasing for a few reasons.
“It’s political and it is also tied to all of the t.v. shows, all of the pro-gun t.v. shows have really helped gun sales.”
This week O-S-B-I is adding staff in the evenings to catch up on the massive backlog of concealed carry permits.
