Quote:PITTSBURGH —

Thousands of people in Pittsburgh and surrounding counties are applying for gun permits as lawmakers on Capitol Hill are calling for a national discussion on gun control.

In Allegheny County you need a permit to carry a concealed pistol, and Channel 11’s Alan Jennings reported that people are flocking in record numbers to apply for a permit.

“We’ve never seen such an increase as we saw Monday with 130 people here. Some were turned away because the lines were so long,” Allegheny County Sheriff Bill Mullen said.

According to Mullen, Allegheny County awarded pistol permits to 12,472 people in 2011. So far in 2012, Allegheny County has issued 17,941 permits, a 44-percent increase from last year.

Donna White said the Connecticut school shooting was her motivation to protect her 10-year-old daughter.

“He was running around killing kids. You’re just not safe at school anymore, and if you’re not safe at school, then where are you safe?” White said. “It’s either them or me, and it’s going to be them.”

Chris Mort told Jennings that he’s worried a ban on carrying a pistol will be implemented following the school shooting.

“I decided to get a permit now, while I still can. It’s just a crazy world we’re living in,” Mort said.

Looks like they're following Feinstein's example on this one.
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.
