    "Last year, nearly 10,000 people in Mecklenburg County applied for permits to buy or carry a gun in public -- a 10 percent increase over the previous year. With every application that is approved, a person can buy up to three guns, though some people change their minds once they have the permit."

    Genius. Pure genius.

    Let's not forget the source of that quote: Alan Lizotte, a professor in the School of Criminal Justice at the University at Albany in New York.

    On the first part I think he may be right. I saw a chart recently put out by the county or the state (I can't remember which), that showed bit over 10k applications REQUESTED last year, but that only about 4K were actually ISSUED. So this means either a LOT of people are being denied, or a LOT of people don't do go through with it once they're told they can actually buy a gun. I would think the later to be more accurate, though that's just my opinion.
