Locally, the Belmont County S.O. processed the most CCL applications

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- New statistics from the state's top law enforcer show that the number of concealed carry licenses issued in Ohio's 88 counties continues to grow.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine on Tuesday issued the report for the first quarter of 2014, which reveals that more than 32,000 concealed carry licenses were issued in Ohio between January 1 - March 31. Of those, 16,205 were new licenses, while 15,832 were renewals. That compares with more than 31,400 new permits issued in the first quarter of 2013, along with more than 6,300 renewals.

More than 145,000 concealed carry licenses were issued in Ohio in 2013 for the largest number issued since licensing began in the state in 2004.

Locally, the Guernsey County Sheriff's Office processed 74 new concealed carry licenses and 86 renewals. In Noble County, 32 new and 20 renewal licenses were issued. The Belmont County Sheriff's Office dealt with the most applications in our listening area, 136 new and 103 renewal licenses.

Each county sheriff reports concealed handgun license statistics quarterly to the state. For a closer look at the report, visit the Ohio Attorney General's website.
