Weston pistol permits are in high demand

The number of pistol permit applications filed in Weston appears to be going up.

According to Weston police Chief John Troxell, from July 1, 2012, to Feb. 1, 2013, there have been 31 applications for pistol permits in Weston. Five of those applications were made since Dec. 14, the day of the Sandy Hook shootings.

At the current pace, if there are about five pistol permit applications per month from now until July 1, there would be about 50 applications, significantly more than last fiscal year.

For the 2011-12 fiscal year, there were 30 pistol permit applications in Weston. There were 27 pistol permit applications in 2010-11.

The number of pistol permit applications has also increased in neighboring Wilton and Ridgefield. In Wilton, there have been 23 applications so far this calendar year, more than half the total filed there in 2012. In Ridgefield, 34 pistol permit applications have been filed in the first month of 2013; 91 were issued there in all of 2012.

Statewide and nationally, gun sales have boomed over the past decade.

Town-issued permits are temporary, 60-day permits. They give people permission to carry a pistol in town. The applicant then forwards the application to the state Department of Public Safety, which then issues a five-year permit.

To get a temporary permit, a resident has to supply a completed notarized application, a birth certificate or passport, a letter or certificate from an authorized NRA instructor, and a bank check or money order for $16.50 and $50 made payable to the state treasurer. Additional fees are $70 to the town of Weston and $70 to the Department of Public Safety.

The applicant has to be fingerprinted at the Police Department, and a background check begins.
