Hallsville sees no rush on gun permits

Sunday, March 21, 2004 | 12:00 a.m. CST; updated 11:26 p.m. CDT, Saturday, July 5, 2008

Hallsville Police Chief Pete Herring printed almost 2,000 conceal-and-carry gun applications, but there was little or no waiting on Saturday, the second day people could apply at the police department for the permits.

Only 13 applicants forked over the $100 fee and submitted to fingerprints and background checks Saturday.”There is no big and wild rush,” Herring said.

Herring said 60 people applied on Friday and that the department will remain open from 1 to 4 p.m. today to process applications.

If the number of applicants remain this low, he said, his department will stop taking applications on the weekend.
