Newtown . . . has issued about 130 gun permits annually,” foxnews.com reports. “Police say the town received 79 permit applications in the three months since the Dec. 14 massacre, well over double the normal pace.” Just to be clear, that’s just under eighty permits in a town of 27,560 residents. It would be interesting to know how many of those applications were approved. I wonder how many new Newtown permit holders support an assault weapons ban and carry a gun. And if they do so when they pick-up their kids or grandchildren from school. “Robert Berkins, records manager for Newtown police, says many applicants are expressing concerns that their gun rights will be taken away.” Right answer.
