Trib Talk: Clark Aposhian, Dee Rowland weigh in on concealed weapon permits
First Published Dec 10 2013 07:11 am • Last Updated Jan 08 2014 06:09 pm

Getting a concealed gun permit in Utah is growing in popularity for both residents and out-of-staters, with new data showing more than half a million permits issued.

While gun enthusiasts attribute the surge to the permit’s cheap price ($51) and fears after the brutal killings in Newtown, Conn. a year ago this week, anti-gun advocates say Utah permits are too easy to get.
