I think I read recently that 1200 permits had been suspended over the last 4 years. However, just because a permit has been taken away does not mean it was not reissued. Mine was taken away in 2008 and I got it back about 6 weeks later. Anytime some takes out an ex-parte order of protection you lose the permit even though you had no day in court just an accusation.
I think this was the article I saw.
